Overview

Smut is a standalone, tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy from the NYT bestselling author of The Pact.

--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 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 an arrogant jerk (with a panty-melting smirk and British accent) and Blake thinks Amanda has a stick up her (tight, round) bottom, they fight tooth and nail. That is until they discover they write well together. They also might 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 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?

NOTE ABOUT THE BOOK: Smut has coarse language and many explicit scenes of a sexual nature (sensitive readers be advised). However, the title of Smut is tongue-in-cheek, and this book should not be considering erotica.

I don't even know where to start. I have found a new author that I am in love with! Even cooler was realizing that she will be at Apollycon in March where I get to be! The story was a cute one, the characters were fun, and I really enjoyed reading them. The sex scenes were definitely hot, but also, as the little note above says, not probably considered erotica. I love when they're writing the books, it even made me think maybe I want to try to write a book like that for fun, it is the popular book, the one that I seem to be reading a lot of lately. There was one scene, a sex scene in the library, that man, I was sitting on my break at the bookstore when I read it, and it was really hard to keep it out of my mind afterwards. It was HOT! And I loved the guy's fear of spiders, and his dislike of Benedict Cumberbatch was hilarious. I loved that both characters were nerdy, even going to a LARP day. And then there is the author's little afterward at the end of the book. She sounds totally like the kind of nerd I am. Plus, the reason she gave it the title she did, and how she hates how people call all romance smut, and look at it as being bad, that was just a really great bit to read. I loved this book, can't wait to read more by the author, and am definitely cooking up new ideas for possible NaNoWriMo stories this year!

This book was very fun and lighthearted, it was easy to get lost in the characters and to read about books and what it means or it might mean to write smut books and how those people are sometimes perceived by those around them. The whole time I kept thinking about the authors that I love and how brave I think they are by just putting their work out in the world, I respect them for that, and I think back to Karina Halle, the author of this book and that has sometimes been a target for people that don’t understand her books. I love reading and I love supporting authors and this book felt like a gift to me, it was funny, insightful and all the references to pop culture were on point. Kind of wish she would make this a series as well.
