Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Book Review

Grade: A

We all have light and dark inside us, love. We try to hide the darkness from others because we’re afraid it will scare them away. But your dark doesn’t scare me, Luca. It only makes me want to hold your hand and be your light until you can find your own again. That’s what people do when they’re in love. I won’t always be able to give you your light back, because sometimes you need to find that within yourself, but I’ll stand by your side and hold your hand in the dark so things aren’t so scary.

This book gave me ALL THE FEELS. It was so beautifully and thoughtfully written. I am a sucker for an epistolary romance, but this one was cream of the crop, top of the line, just wonderfulness. Griffin and Luca are true soul mates. Truly – the lengths that Griffin went through to support Luca and understand her NOT fix her – were inspiring.

The story contains such an honest and open look at anxiety disorders and healing. The authors never try to “fix” Luca or have her miraculously cured of her anxiety. It shows her working through it and the damage it does to herself and her relationships. Griffin, who has his own issues, loves Luca for who she is – including the anxiety. He support and understands, but doesn’t enable or try to fix. There relationship is really amazing and should give hope and inspiration to others who might suffer from the same level of anxiety – or who have a partner with anxiety.

I really adored this story and all that went with it. It was sweet, funny, sexy as hell, and beautifully written.

I received an ARC of this story in exchange for this review – but the opinions expressed are entirely my own!
