Contemporary Romance

My Favorite Souvenir Released EARLY!! Release blitz and review


A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one. Rather than let

my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury

resort was just what I needed.

But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room,

along with a few hundred other people.

It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel

lobby floor.

Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order

to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.

When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to

be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began.

We were the Hookers.

My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.

My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown.

When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet.

So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip.

At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.

But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.

Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with

a vulnerable woman.

So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three


It was always my intention to meet him.

But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.

And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.

Was there a place for him in my future?

Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward deliver another unputdownable romance with their latest, MY FAVORITE SOUVENIR.

Even though her wedding never took place, Hazel decided to go on her honeymoon and enjoy a winter wonderland vacation, but a blizzard left her and a few hundred other people stranded and without a hotel room.

Just when she was about to give up, she noticed a very attractive man tricking the front desk into getting him a room. Instead of outing him, she feigned being his sister and got a room of her own pretending to be Milo and Maddie Hooker.
<blockquote><b> “So, the Hookers are going to a party, and we don’t even know what it’s for?”
“Does it really matter? Have any of the destinations we’ve hit mattered? It’s the experience, the thrill of the unknown. It’s never the destination.”</b></blockquote>
After a couple of fun filled days it’s obvious the two clicked and instead of heading their separate ways they decide to take an adventurous road trip together. But even though they were attracted to each other and admitted as much, Milo was aware that she was still confused and vulnerable because of her recent breakup.
<blockquote>It made me so much more attracted to him to know he put my emotional needs above his own physical ones.</blockquote>
Even without knowing their real names but wanting to be much more, they decide to meet up at one of their road trip stops in three months to pick up where the left off is it was in the cards. Will reality obstruct their happy dreams of a future together?
<blockquote> I really did love what our relationship had grown into. It was pretty crazy to think I’d only known her a little less than a week. Especially when I felt like she knew me better than anyone else these days.</blockquote>
As with every collaboration between Keeland and Ward, MY FAVORITE SOUVENIR is an utter delight to read. I literally could not put Milo and Maddie’s story down. Their story was packed with heart, passion and delicious tension.

Keeland and Ward have an extraordinary ability to draw you into stories you can’t help but devour. I was hooked by Milo and Maddie’s charming meet cute and fun adventures, I loved how the tension between them slowly but surely grew sky high and was totally caught off guard by the twist of fate when they went back to their real lives. I was sitting at the edge of my seat rooting for them even when the odds seem to be against them.

<b>My Favorite souvenir</b> is a standalone contemporary romance, written by authors <i>Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward</i>. This is a perfect stay at home read. It is told from both points of view with a happy ending.
