Full disclaimer: anything that Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward write, I will happily devour. They are phenomenal writers in their own right, but when they write together it’s magical. I could never imagine writing with another person. I think it takes such a skill to fully enmesh yourselves and your writing to create a cohesive book that has a united voice. I feel like I can barely manage that well enough on my own.
Dear Bridget, I Want You is the story of sexy British Simon who is doing his residency at the same hospital as his new roommate, nurse Bridget. Bridget is a single mom still grieving the death of her husband. She works full-time, but it is tough to still make ends meet, so she rents out a room to Simon who is in need of some housing. They had a previous fun meet-cute awhile back involving a fish hook in a butt that comes to play a larger role later in the novel.
It’s a bit of opposites attract: Simon is unapologetically a bit of a slut and Bridget is tightly wound and finds her release in her romance novels. But there is still an undeniable attraction, which is hard for Bridget because she just can’t see herself as desirable to sexy Simon since she’s a mom and had a lackluster sex life with her deceased husband. But fear not, through some sexy late night letter writing and slightly ajar doors, these two finally get together and it’s super sexy.
