Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Douglas comes the latest new adult romance with a bit of everything...friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, and a somewhat interesting use of public places.

Misha

I can't help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me.

In fifth grade my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.

It didn't take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever... And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.

Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there's one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She's the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

We had only three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?

Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name's Ryen, loves Gallo's pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?

F--k it. I need to meet her.

I just don't expect to hate what I find.

Ryen

He hasn't written in three months. Something's wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.

Without him around, I'm going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It's my own fault. I should've gotten his phone number or picture or something.

He could be gone forever.

Or right under my nose, and I wouldn't even know it.

    Story
    "Fantasy vs. real life"

    Once again, Penelope Douglas made a very beautiful and emotional story about two young lovers finding their way though a very difficult time. Mischa and Ryen were pen pals from grade school until their final year of college. They had never met nor spoken on the phone. Bothered pined for each other and built up this fantasy of what the other would be like. When they first met, Mischa was able to recognize Ryen though a strange coincidence. However their first encounter was married by a family tragedy. This same tragedy leads to them having more interactions with one and other....only Mischa uses a fair name.

    I really enjoyed this one. The author has this way of making stories about big love while also talking about teens finding themselves. In this case, Ryen cleary wanted acceptance, inclusion and respect. Ultimately, she was a bully. Mischa was having problems greiving a dead family member and facing his abandonment issues. While he wasn't a bully exactly, he had a bit of a superiority complex. The way their relationship unfolded was messy and full of angst. Penelope Douglas really gets teen romance.... while making the story for adults.

    Story
    "Didn't see it coming!"

    High school was not where I wanted to really go with this story. The main characters were far from high school but the secondary characters were definitely high school. The story has so many twist that I found myself surprised at the end. It was so easy on the ears that I could not stop listening.

    Laurie Winkle was very believable in this story of Ryen. I like how she didn't change her voice a whole lot between characters. It made me think of how I would read the story to myself.

    Matthew Holland, his voice was like silk. I will be looking for his voice for future books.

    I will be listening again when credits are gone and money is tight. Or just sick of searching for new.
