Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.

My 2 Cents for Free!

This is a cute romance about a workaholic literary agent and a workaholic book editor who have the opposite of a meet-cute but this is a romance so you already know that all of that gets fixed later.

There is a lot of humorous banter that is actually funny instead of annoying. I wasn’t sure if I’d like a book about a workaholic beautiful ice queen but I’m always open to changing my mind and I soon did. Both characters are super bookish so it gets a lot of points for that too.

Nora feels the weight of being the older sister who is so accustomed to taking care of the people she loves (her mom’s emotional needs and then later the financial needs of her younger sister) that she just cannot stop doing it. She’s put her nose to grind and she loves her life and is just fine with being high maintenance, thank you very much. Good for her and I mean that sincerely! She loves what she loves. But her city life is about to take a pause when her younger sister plans a trip for the two of them for a month to a very small town in NC that is cute but lacking in everything but a hunky dude or two 😉. One of those dudes happens to be the annoying book editor I mentioned above, I mean, I don’t think I’m surprising anyone with that statement so don't come at me . . .

This was fun, not super spicy (if you ask me) but the humor made up for it and there were several Bigfoot erotica mentions so that really called to me! It’ll leave you feeling all warm and happy so do yourself a favor and read this if you need something charming and who doesn’t right about now?
