From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escapemy sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identitiesand she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeouseverything Id ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they wereuntil the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

ARC received for an honest review

Firstly, let me say that I am not usually one to really look at covers, but Penelope Ward does come out with some amazing, hot covers.  I licked him, he's mine!

Ryder and Montana met online - nothing unusual about that in this day and age - except they didn't meet the normal way online if that makes sense!

I liked their connection, the way their relationship developed, online and in real life.

I like that Ryder, who is who he is in Hollywood, doesn't come across as the spoiled Hollywood brat.  He seems, *gasp*, normal.  And I like it.  A lot.  I completely adore him.

"Montana" is everything that he never expects, and as her story unfolds she surprises me more than once.

I did like that there was no unnecessary drama with Love Online.  There is this thing that happens in a lot of Penelope Ward's books that I was waiting for and was pleased when this time it didn't!

Sweet, sexy, tender and a bit of mystery thrown in for the reader, Love Online was an easy and fun read that I read in one sitting.

I can't wait to see what Ms Ward brings us next.

Ryder and Montana meet online. You might already know that if you've read the blurb - or only even the title of the book! ☺

Ryder has a beautiful life. He's rich and hot. He can/could get any girl he wants.

But he's not really happy.
It's all the same, every day.
He feels lonely.

And Montana. We don't yet know much about her. It's all a bit mysterious. We do get her POV too, but mostly Ryder's at the beginning.
Ryder wants more than just the girl behind the computer-camera. He wants to know where she lives. Montana doesn't want that.
Well, she wants him too. But she just can't.
And that's where I stop talking about the story!!!! ☺ Anything more would spoil too much!

I really enjoyed reading this book!
I immediately loved Ryder. He's this poor little rich boy. But he's also so sweet and kind and sexy. But he's also lonely, vulnerable and broken and we feel sad for him. But only a little!☺
We want him to end up happily ever after with Montana - but we have no idea what her life is like - or where she even lives! It won't be easy for us - or for Ryder - to get that happy end.
But we really enjoy witnessing him fighting for it!

This was a really sexy book. Very adorable and moving. A little mysterious and sad. But also funny and so sweet and adorable.
Great Romance!
But for me ... Ryder was a tiny little bit too un-alpha-romance-hero-ish. He's a bit soft. Maybe it's because we don't see him do much sexy, manly stuff in the beginning. He's only sitting in front of his computer talking about feelings and whatnot. I still really adored him. He's really sweet and kind and ... I just wish he would've been written a bit manlier! He's perfect as a boyfriend probably. Talking about feelings and helping and listening and doing, every girl's dream, right? But we need a little bit bad boy. He was kinda written as a Bad Boy in the beginning, with his parties and stuff - but we never really saw him acting it out. BUT - don't worry - you'll love him. He's an amazing guy! ☺

The story itself was also a bit like Ryder - there is no real drama, no excitement. I hate unnecessary drama, so that was ok, but it was a bit too excitement free. But it was still a cute little love story!

LOVE ONLINE was a really sexy and adorable and moving love story! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Ryder - this one is MINE!!!
and I mean the Ryder in the book and Eddy on the cover!!!
