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 escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Ede

Whoops, the blurb is misleading! It hides the most important information and lets you think this is some sweet & cute romance!

Keep reading; I'll tell you what it is about...

***********************************************

Penelope Ward is an interesting writer for me; she sometimes writes books that I adore and then she goes and writes things that frustrate the hell out of me.

This one was sadly a huge disappointment for me because of what the heroine does to earn money. In my review, I will ta

My life had been dark for a couple of years, and connecting with Ryder had given me something to look forward to each day, something just for me and no one else. He was truly my guilty pleasure.





I have to admit that I didn’t read the blurb when I signed up to review Love Online. Penelope Ward is just one of many authors that I have placed on my automatic must-read list. I assumed that the couple in this story was going to meet via an online d

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 McNamara had a charmed life. But behind his glitzy lifestyle, he was a jaded man. One lonely night, he stumbled upon a woman who managed to make him feel alive again.

Eden had been living a double life behind her onscreen persona. Contented with the path she took, she never thought she could find something real. But as her heart started to latch on to the man behind the screen she had to decide if they’re worth some

The H meeting the h on an online PORN site is something I would never enjoy reading. But still out of curiosity and because of the authors previous works I decided to go for this.
But I was disappointed.
THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR ME.
The h video chatting with random strangers and flashing them boobs or masturbating online and all the live cam thing was so not my scenario..

Normally I would have enjoyed reading this book if they hadn’t met on the porn site.
Elsa Bravante
Malo. Sé que a muchos lectores no les gustará a qué se dedica la protagonista o cómo se conocen. En principio, no ha sido ese mi problema con el libro. Mi problema es que es otra vez la historia del rico que ayuda a la pobrecita que sufre en la vida cuidando de su familia y bla bla blá. Diálogos repetitivos, cursis, mecánicos, situaciones poco creíbles, relación precipitada, malas escenas de sexo. Lo único bueno, y muy bueno, es la portada.

This was absolute BS. I realized something. I have a subconscious pet-peeve that came out of the closet today. And I'd like to thank this book for assisting my subconscious in doing that.

Here goes. WHY DOES THE HEROINE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE THIS SUFFERER IN SILENCE, SELFLESS, HOARDED WITH THE PROBLEMS OF THE UNIVERSE WITH AN ABUSIVE OR DEPENDENT FAMILY MEMBER IN TOW TO MAKE HER LOVABLE?

It all started with a click and as they say, the rest was history. :-)

Though having everything he could ever want and many of us wished we had, Ryder was still unhappy. Having lost something he thought he had and wanting it back had him clicking that screen with the violin. Not in his wildest dreams did he think that one click would change his life.

Eden's life was anything but easy yet she did what she had to, to be able to survive and provide. I loved her tenacity and determination to survive

Yuck!!

I like this author early book, I mean very early, before she was getting famous and wrote very silly storylines. However she will join my author to avoid list with this book.

Oh, before this, I had 4 dnf-ed of hers.
I think, I just couldn’t connect anymore with the story she tried to sell.

That’s all!

We all know someone who has tried online dating and may have even met someone to spend the rest of their life with. I’m surprised that this is the first book I have read about this popular way of meeting people.

Ryker lives a Hollywood lifestyle in LA, working in the movie industry for his father. Two years ago he was left heartbroken after his girlfriend left him during a really difficult time in his life. Since then he has only had casual hook ups with the many women who throw themselves at him

“We’re perfect together.”

I've never met a bad Penelope Ward book and this one keeps that tradition going.

As is inferred from the title, Ryder and Eden meet online...through some interesting circumstances. There is just something about Eden that Ryder connects with...and he can't let go.

You see, he's the son of a very successful producer and very wealthy. People want him for what he can do for them. He's tired of it and the fakeness of it all.

However, the moment he hears Eden, he is hook

Penelope Ward's stories always have her very special touch. They always feel familiar but they also are always very different from each other. I love this author's originality with the themes and the surprises along the way of reading. Love Online sounded so good to me and, of course, I was pleasantly surprised after reading very few pages. Yes, our main couple meets online but it's not exactly what you think it is.. It's very difficult to explain anything without spoilers

Oh my goodness….I just never wanted this book to end. I finished it in one sitting. I could not remove myself from this book. It just consumed me from page one. What a hero!! Let me say it again, what a hero!!! One of my favorite heroes and books from Penelope Ward. Ryder was everything I love in a hero and more. I just loved the way he treated everyone around him. I also loved the heroine Eden. I admired her because she’s an independent woman who works hard and has her priorities straight. Thei ...more

Sooo...this started out really good for me. By 'good' I mean 'different'. It was an unusual way for the hero (Ryder) and heroine (Eden) to meet ((view spoiler)). So I was really into the something different aspect.

Ryder was this handsome, rich, 28 year old guy, the son of the head of a Hollywood movie studio, expected to follow in his father's footsteps. But he was unsure of the life he was leading. He was unsure of his career path. He had a f

I think one of my favorite things about Penelope Ward books are that they are never quite what I’m expecting. There are all these little emotional twists and turns that take what looks like a simple love story, turns it on its head, and the end result is this multi-layered, emotional, unputdownable, epic love story.

Ryder and Eden’s story started sort of fast and furious for me and it took me a little bit to catch up to their feelings. I might actually have liked a little more dialogue/interactio

What can I say? Penelope Ward delivers her signature writing style with another great book! Love Online is full of fun, heart, and surprises. With that being said, I'm going to make my review short and sweet. Go in blind! There are so many fantastic things I want to say but they would spoil the whole shebang so I'm not going to say them!

Love Online is a sweet, heartwarming story about two very different individuals from very different worlds, whose lives collide online.

Ryder and Eden have very important responsibilities. They are defined by their responsibilities. Their responsibilities puts their lives into prospective. It also sets limitations. Its the limitations that they must overcome in order find true love.

I’m not sure where she gets her inspiration for stories, or her perfectly amazing men, but I hope Penelope Ward doesn’t stop. She’s my go-to one click lady, and I’m never disappointed. Love Online hit all the right keys for me, and gave me yet another couple to love.

On the outside, Ryder was the typical rich, spoiled guy. A prince in an entertainment industry family, with women throwing themselves at him. But on the inside, Ryder housed a lonely man, bored with what was given to him too easily a

I’m torn over this audiobook because it’s a cute story but I couldn’t get over the heroine’s choice of work. I get why she got into it but it was hard to understand how one can have a meaningful relationship and continue to do as she did.

Ryder McNamara was a tv Star with money and fame but after some friends got him to watch a girl online with a private sex room. For some reason Ryder felt an a connection with this girl and soon cultivated a relationship with her. I don’t want to give
