Tempted by Mr. Write by Sara Hantz
Description from Goodreads:
After losing out on a plum assignment, a romance book conference is the last place journalist Sheridan Farlow wants to be. Love is a myth-like flattering changing room mirrors-and she has the past relationships to prove it. Her editor wants a story? Fine. She’ll write an entire exposé…only it doesn’t go quite according plan.
Bernard “Mac” Mackenzie is something of an anomaly in the romance-writing world-a man who writes romance and believes in it. And until he met Sheridan, Mac’s never felt anything close to the love he writes about. He needs more of her. In his arms, and in his bed.
Their attraction is explosive; even as Sheridan’s cynical side battles her growing feelings for Mac. But can she handle writing a biting exposé with an exposed heart on the line?
Miss Riki’s Review:
This book is all sorts of fun! I’ve always wanted to go to a romance book conference, and this cute novella took me right there, full of all of the wonderful details. I mean really, cover models, hot male romance writers, and one jaded journalist- what’s not to love?
I really enjoyed Sheridan as the leading lady in this book. She’s whip smart and just a little weary of spending a weekend in Las Vegas with rabid romance readers, but when it comes right down to it, she finds the joy contagious. I loved how sweet she was with the conference goers she meets along the way, and how willing she was to open up to the idea of love.
And Mac- yes! He’s such a great hero! I’m all for a hot male romance writer! I mean, seriously- a man in touch with his feminine side? Perfection. And I loved how he is with Sheridan!
Sheridan and Mac have instant chemistry, and I loved their witty banter and easygoing natures. This is a couple that romance fans can root for.
My only qualm about this book is that it was absolutely too short, coming in under a scant 100 pages. I led the characters and the setting so much, that I definitely could have used even more of them.
But- that being said, this novella is fun, cute, and pretty low on the heat scale for sexiness, so it will appeal to romance fans of any age. I certainly enjoyed it!
