Twenty-two-year-old historical romance writer Nicole Blake, or N.S. Blake to her readers, hasn’t taken an official poll, mind you, but she is convinced she may be the only romance author on the planet who is still a card-carrying member of the virgin club.Not that she hasn’t tried to end her membership. Life just keeps finding pesky ways to interfere. With no prospects on the horizon, Nicole begins to feel like the closest she will ever get to experiencing a man is within her own stories.
Opportunity presents itself in the form of hot-as-sin-on-a-lollipop-stick bartender/premed student Alec Petropoulos, who agrees to be the cover model for her upcoming book. Sparks fly instantly between them, and Nicole begins to entertain the possibility that she’s finally found the right guy to hand over her tattered V-card. Alec has all the makings for a perfect one-night-stand candidate except, much to Nicole’s surprise, he seems to be the only man in existence not interested in bagging a virgin.
Stuck between a rock and a stubborn male, what’s a virgin to do? Seduce him, of course. How hard could it be? If it works for the characters in her stories, why wouldn’t it work for her? After all, what happens under the cover…stays under the cover.
The Write Stuff by Tiffany King is the perfect romance novel for a summery day where you have nothing to do but relax and enjoy a cup of tea. It’s sweet, indulgent, and full of fantastic characters.
Nicole Blake is an indie author. She stays up all night writing her books, only dresses when forced to leave the house, and pours every ounce of herself into her romances. So the last thing she expects is to fall hard for a the cover model of her next book. He’s gorgeous and charismatic, she’s an introvert who feels super self conscious…and they couldn’t be more perfect for each other, except for the baggage they both carry. I loved these two! Nicole was basically me in book form (and with books actually published). She enjoys comfy clothes and keeping to herself, and it was fun to see her blossom as Alec helps build her self-confidence both as a friend and as a potential lover. I was pleased to see that both Nicole and Alec go through some significant growth throughout this one, because a relationship should never focus on changing one person and no romance should ever be without some character development.
Everything about this book was fun. It was like getting to see into an author’s life and then adding in most authors dreams as well, I mean who doesn’t want to hit it big with one of their books? And I don’t know many single authors who would pass a chance to hang out with a cover model. Other than a short story in the 2014 UtopYA collection I’ve never read Tiffany’s work before, but now I’m convinced that I need more of her books in my life. The writing is quick and easy to fall into, making hours go by in a matter of minutes.
I’m so glad I downloaded this onto my kindle, and I’m even happier that I have two other York books waiting for me including Writing a Wrong, the sequel to this one. If you enjoy fluffy romance with some great character development, then what are you waiting for?
