Synopsis

Dear Bridget,
I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don’t.
Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.
–Simon

Review

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland always deliver a completely unique story and this was no different. Dear Bridget, I Want You was so enjoyable. This was an easy read that was not overly heavy in the drama department but still managed to sneak in some twists I feel like I should have seen coming but never did. At this point in reading these two I should be guessing the extreme for their twists and yet I am always still completely surprised and taken aback by the twists they deliver.

Let’s take a minute to appreciate the Hot British Doctor that Simon is. OH MY GOD. He was so sexy and would love to listen to an audio of this just to hear his voice. He pushed single mom, Bridget, to come out of her shell and open up to being more than just a mom, widow, and nurse. To being a woman again. The sexual tension was off the charts.

Overall, the story was so good but would have loved if the angst was even higher, but that is probably just me being an angst lover. The story was sexy and fun and a great lazy day read.
