About the Book
Title: Dedicated to the One I Love
Author: Beth K. Vogt
Publisher: White Glove
Release Date: June 20, 2023
Genre: Contemporary Romance
She doesn’t believe in love anymore. He doesn’t either.
They’re perfect for each other.
Beloved romance novelist Kylie Franklin walked away from her pen-name career as bestselling and award-winning Veronica Hollins the day her husband died. Her loyal readers are eager for the final book in her sensational series. But Kylie’s given up on love, both fictional and in real life. Behind her back, Kylie’s agent contrives a way to get her writing again.
Joe Edwards has made a name for himself with his popular military suspense novels under the pen name Tate Merrick. Yet he can’t quite break onto the bestseller list. What his books need, his publisher suggests, is some romance. Joe flat refuses. However, his publisher is determined and hires Veronica Hollins to save the day—and his career.
Veronica and Tate quickly realize they’re Kylie and Joe, good friends who connected online via a popular word game and their mutual love of trivia. Surely they can wrangle their alter egos into this literary collaboration. But as the deadline looms, their differences threaten the romance developing off the page.
From a Christy Award-winning author comes this charming mash-up of hidden identities, literary tug of war, and falling in love when you least expect it.
My thoughts: This is such a fun story! I enjoyed the characters as they got to know one another through the course of their relationship. Kylie was especially well written, as she works through some of her grief after losing her husband several years previous. I love that she has a group of friends who have been by her side! Having gone through seasons of loss and grief, I know how important it is to have that support group.
I also love the anonymous friends story line, since it is a fun way for characters to get to know one another on a deeper level. Kylie and Joe go through quite a few different levels of friendship, which kept me turning the page to figure out where they would eventually land!
This is such a delightful, well written story. I recommend picking it up.
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
