Synopsis

What happens when the kink between the pages leads to heat between the sheets? All Blake Crawford wants is to pass his creative writing course, get his university degree, and take over his dad’s ailing family business. What Amanda Newland wants is to graduate at the top of her class, as well as finally finish her novel and prove to her family that writing is a respectful career. What Blake and Amanda don’t want is to be paired up with each other for their final project, but that’s exactly what they both get when they’re forced to collaborate on a writing piece. Since Amanda thinks Blake is a pushy asshole (with a panty-melting smirk and British accent) and Blake thinks Amanda has a stick up her ass (though it’s a brilliant ass), they fight tooth and nail until they discover they write well together. They also may find each other really attractive, but that’s neither here nor there. When their writing project turns out to be a success, the two of them decide to start up a secret partnership using a pen name, infiltrating the self-publishing market in the lucrative genre of erotica. Naturally, with so much heat and passion between the pages, it’s not long before their dirty words become a dirty reality. Sure, they still fight a lot, but at least there’s make-up sex now. But even as they start to fall hard for each other, will their burgeoning relationship survive if their scandalous secret is exposed? Or are happily-ever-afters just a work of fiction?

Five Boundless Stars

Smut is this hilarious, hot, sexy and totally just an awesome read. Amanda and Blake are total opposites. Like Amanda really really hates Blake. He’s from England and has this arrogance about him. But Amanda is smart. But she also thinks way too much. Just like all of us women. And also Amanda has issue when she becomes nervous.. You’ll find out exactly what happens in the very first chapter.

Amanda is taking a creative writing class in college and for the final assignment you can only guess who her partner is. One that is left questioning the teacher. Does the teacher really hate her that much? I loved the banter between these two and i really loved these characters.

Which leads to the, smut part of the story. Yes they decide to do the one thing. That may be out of Amanda’s character but leads to a juicy story. I don’t think I’ll walk into a Library the same ever again. They are able to explore so much about each other, without being held back. The scenes were sexy, steamy and just really ammmazzinnng. I’m swooning for these two.

Halle, really is such an amazing writer. This idea, this story was the best! I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with next.
