More Than Pen Pals by Dana Wilkerson (ePUB)
I deceived him for four years.
Ash and I were childhood pen pals. He thought I was a boy, and I never told him I wasn’t. Since we lived in different states, he’d never find out. Right?
Wrong. Well, he didn’t figure it out when we were kids, but now we’re sitting a few tables away from each other in a downtown Chicago restaurant, and I’m about to be exposed as a fraud.
I know what you’re thinking: Just keep your mouth shut, and he won’t know who you are.
Wrong, again. My lunch companion and co-worker, Wendy, knows him. Wait. Let me amend that. She’s infatuated with him. Oh, yes. My newest friend has a crush on the boy I betrayed. What are the odds? Infinitely low. That’s what they are.
To top things off, Ash’s brother just saved me from choking to death. It’s been an eventful lunch, to say the least. And now Wendy is determined to stop by their table to thank him again and to flirt with Ash.
He’s going to hate me, right?
Please tell me I’m wrong.
More Than Pen Pals is a childhood-friends-to-lovers Throwback RomCom set in the late 1980s. It reads like a contemporary romance novel with all the tropes, closed-door chemistry, and banter, but the relationship evolves without the use of cell phones or the Internet. Dating was a whole different game in the 80s!
