The Write Stuff by Tiffany King ~ Review

Source:  Received an eBook copy from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

From USA Today Bestselling Author, 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.




Best Tiffany King book ever!  Add to that the New Adult genre and I was so sold.

Gorgeous blue eyed Alec is the cover model for Nicole's new book.  She really should have changed her clothes before she went to the shoot on the beach.  Fresh from her writing cave, she was one hot mess.  Her awkward state and his sexy good looks had her fumbling right into the waves.  Guess that wet t-shirts is gonna show him she not wearing a bra.  Could her day get worse?  Oh, it could.

A blind date and some tongue action when she only meant to catch his scent has her fleeing to the restroom with her BFF.

Packed with humor and sexy times, this one had me laughing and then swooning.  And awkward?  So much awkward! It was just totally fun to read.

I adore Alec.  He has a secret that definitely defines him.  Sleeping with a virgin is not on his to-do list.  And he has a good reason.  But that doesn't mean they can't work together.  He wants to try for friends.  Yeah, right.  With the smokin' hot chemistry between them...friends are so not happening.  But they do try.

Did I tell you I adore Alec?  I so do.  He's kind, protective, and genuine.  Mistakes from his past have raised him into a man - a man I really love.  Oh, and did I mention his skills? The boy has skills.  Besides being able to raise one of those crazy vertical banners that authors take to signings, he can find every excuse to touch a girl.  And don't get me started on how he takes care of his girls needs.  Can you say magical...you get the idea.

Loved Nicole too.  Living her dream job as a writer is everything she wants except she'd really like some of those yummy orgasms her characters are always getting.  And that pesky V-card needs to go.  I really admired her for how she managed to hold herself together after the deed didn't happen.  Facing Alec at book signings was beyond awkward and she deserved combat pay.  But I loved her for how strong she was.

Between Nicole's best friend (who so deserves her own book) and her brothers, I was loving the secondary characters.  They all felt so real.  The dynamics were there and I cared about them. 

Now the story was classic Tiffany King.  Her stories don't follow a predictable pattern.  She always has such real themes that the story just endears itself to the reader.  All of that is present in this one.

I read this in a day.  How could I not?  I just didn't want to put it down.  Well, I did put it down to make teaser graphics for it.  When I'm reading and a quote jumps off the page at me, I usually create a graphic to go with it.  This one kept stopping me for that but then I was right back to reading.

Just so good.  Make sure you grab this and put it on your next to read list.
