Susi Reviews The Write Stuff
by Tiffany King
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.
This week I read The Write Stuff by Tiffany King and I am excited to tell you all about it. First of all, I loved this book! I loved the characters, the plot and the settings. Nicole, the female protagonist is awesome. She is living one of my dreams as a romance writer so I became an instant fan of hers. Her friend Olivia who shoots covers for her books is the type of friend every woman needs to have. She is real, honest, funny and proves to be a fantastic friend. Nicole meets the latest cover model for her upcoming book. Whoa…. He blew me away. Alec Petropoulos is oh so yummy. There is so much more to this delicious man than good looks. I enjoyed discovering all about him in this book.
There are so many relatable scenes for me in this book that I had a hard time putting it down. As a blogger, I pictured myself at the book signings interacting with the authors and other bloggers. Having been to Book Bash in Orlando, your story came to life. As a lover of romance, your book had it all. There were deliciously written sex scenes, love, angst, brilliant symbolism, light hearted humor and of course, Alec, the hottie. So yes, as a lover of eye candy and sexy cover models, Alec totally did it for me. He is a total package!
I am also a Floridian so I enjoyed experiencing the story in places I’ve been to. The Florida heat, I absolutely get that too.
Finally, this adorably written love story unfolded before my very eyes. You mentioned submersion into a story, well that is exactly what happened to me. I enjoyed reading/living out the story in my mind.
I gave this book 4 stars!
