Great story and interesting characters. This is the first book I've read by Tiffany King, but it definitely will not be the last.

Oh. My. Goodness. If you’re looking for a sexy read full of laughs, then look no further that Tiffany King’s The Write Stuff. This amazing story pulled me in from the get go, and I loved how much I was able to connect with both the characters and the story itself, seeing the ins and outs of self-publishing as N.S. Blake begins to make a name for herself with her intoxicating stories. If you’ve never been to a mass signing or weekend book conference before, then you’re really missing out, and you’ll see just how much when you read Kings novel. I had to laugh out loud at all the antics of the ladies, ogling the male models, lining up for pictures and signatures and insisting that the models take off their shirts for photos–an aspect that has indeed become a “thing” at book conferences and signings. And King captures the chaos and awesomeness that it is as she writes from personal experience from the many signings and conferences she’s attended (and I’m lucky enough to say that I’ve attended two with her, as well!). Everything about the writer/reader world that King incorporates in her novel is 100% true, and having experienced much of it at conferences I’ve attended, I was just tickled pink with how much I could truly visualize as I read. King certainly has a way with words, and I adored her insights into the bookish world, a world we don’t hear much about inside books, which makes it all the more awesome. And Alec? Mmmmmmmmm. He is definitely hotness on a stick, and I loved how honest and forthright he was. He’s a man who knows what he wants, and he has some shocking but valid reasons for denying N.S. Blake, reasons that made me respect him on a whole nother level as the novel unfolded. Of course, there is definitely a lot of friction between N.S. Blake and Alec, and I loved how their friendship bloomed. Their relationship is extremely realistic, and I enjoyed their antics as the plot thickened. One of the aspects that I really adore about this novel is that it’s completely unique. While the “virgin trying to de-virginalize herself” seems to be a plot that I’m noticing more often lately, King doesn’t follow the same patter as others, and her novel really stands apart. From the intricacies of the bookish world to the chemistry and maturity of the main characters, King takes readers on a realistic journey of love and heartache, and it’s so very amazing. This is a must read!

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.
