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 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.

This book is truly spectacular!  Tiffany King knocks it WAY out of the park with this book!  I could not put it down.  Nicole is a young author who is extremely relatable!  It is impossible to not fall instantly in love with her personality.   Alec, the Greek God of all things manly, is so steamy and a lot more!  If you are looking for a true-to-life romance that will make you experience a flood of different emotions, this is for you.   Never before has there been a book that I could so easily and completely immerse myself in and forget I was reading.  Highly recommended!

Good laughs and chemistry! Finally last weekend, I was in the mood for a novel with a virgin romance author trope and dove in. I really liked the cover and how it tied in well to the story. I also loved all the what it’s like to be an indie writer details. Nicole Blake (or N.S. Blake to her readers) was living her dream as a young professional independent historical romance author while still in college pursuing a formal degree. She was one of the lucky ones and could let her degree be a fall back if she needed to give teaching a try someday. Her relationship with her bestie Olivia was odd language-wise but based on love and a professional partnership that was lucrative for them both. Olivia, who did double duty as her book cover designer/photographer, interrupted Nicole one day while she was on a writing roll and begged her to come down to the latest photoshoot without delay. Why the urgency though? I missed why really. I questioned it in the moment and probably should have reread to make sure I understood it. But I was too lazy to do so and what came out of that was Nicole being introduced to medical school student Alec Petropoulos. Now Nicole had a sinfully sexy male candidate for help eliminating her pesky V-card. Only Alec put the brakes on her plan (for his own very valid reasons) once she admitted her virgin status. He suggested they be friends only. Understandably her ego got bruised badly, but I could see the wisdom in them getting to know each other a bit before heating things up again. The drama and humor as they worked together doing book signing events was entertaining although not quite what I had in mind when I picked this story for my Sunday reading pleasure. My favorite quote that summed their journey up well: ‘We had everything a good romance story needed – a rocky beginning, a slow build to a budding relationship several hurdles to overcome, and finally, a happily ever after’ ~Nicole Next up in this series: Yes, there is a sequel entitled Writing a Wrong (Write Stuff, #2). However, I don’t feel a sense of urgency to read it yet since I don’t already own it. This is why I normally wait to collect an entire series before diving in so I don’t have to think guiltily about whether or not I should read a book from my collection or buy this new book. But also, I feel that this first novel really can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel for now. I will probably read the sequel someday when I’m in the mood to see how Nicole and Alec navigated their new life together as a permanent couple and also for an update on Olivia. I’m hoping Olivia gave Taylor, whom she dumped when things were getting serious on his part, another chance to prove to her he is the One.

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

How do I start this? Wow. Totally blew me away. I can't believe this. This book is totally awesome. I deeply felt every word that is written in this book. And it's like peering into the world of writers. Wow. It's like Nicole is my friend, and I'm Olivia, doing all the wonderful stuff to help my friend. Really. It's totally bizarre that I found myself reading it non stop. And when I finally do, there's like three chapters left before I finish it. Wow. Wow. I am totally speechless.  I totally suck at writing this. Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. It's not all too heavy to read. It's very light to and will surely make you laugh. I did. I read non stop the veary next day when Tiffany sent me her book. Well, I did stop though, like three chapters before the book ended. I think I said that part already. I need sleep that time! Can you blame me? Good gods! The revelations just killed me. Tiffany King did it again!

I am still new to Tiffany King's books. I read her No Attachments, Misunderstandings and now, The Write Stuff. I have to say that so far The Write Stuff is my favorite. It starts off with Nicole writing like a maniac. She is a self published author who is still trying to get her name out into the world. Her best friend calls her and begs her to stop writing and to come to the photo shoot for Nicole's newest book cover. When Nicole finally agrees, she doesn't shower, brush her hair, change, or even try to make herself look decent. So - when she arrives at the photo shoot and sees the uber sexy male cover model, she instantly regrets not showering. The chemistry between them is instant and who knew that under all his sexiness was a smart and caring man. Tiffany King does a wonderful job at creating lovable characters (including Nicole's overbearing family). I especially enjoyed getting into the mindset of a writer. I asked Tiffany if some of the thoughts and writing habits came from personal experience and she said, "A lot of it was pulled from personal experience." But she made sure to specify that the scene where Nicole showed up like a wreck embarrassing herself in front of the sexy cover model was NOT from personal experience. (I laughed at that.) Tiffany did well with making sure the book wasn't too "sexy" but it was just enough if you like that kind of thing. I have read some New Adult books where it was almost erotica with absolutely no plot but The Write Stuff had a cute plot with lovable characters, and yes a little sexiness. My only complaint is how hard Nicole wanted to throw her virginity away. Girls should hold that close until they find someone they love but Nicole is 22 years old and feels like she's missing out. If you are under the age of 18 I wouldn't recommend it unless you are allowed to read New Adult books. That's my small warning for parents but it honestly isn't as "sexy" as other books. Just enough, though.

I absolutely loved this book! When I first read the synopsis, it stuck out like a sore thumb. Book author has the hots for her cover model. I have never read a book like it before. I was intrigued from the beginning. Nicole, a mature for her age college student, sits in her room writing romance novels instead of going out and having a good time. Thus she is still a virgin at 22. Enter Alec, the hot, sexy cover model for her new book. She is drawn to him from the beginning, but their relationship gets off to a rocky start. But once he comforts her after the incident, the relationship heats up.... and then cools off. I experienced a ton of emotions throughout this book. Some instances had me laughing out loud while others had me crying in agony. I will continue to read other books by Tiffany King.

Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books I was ready to pre-order this book on the simple fact that it was by Tiffany King alone. But once I started reading the blurb I got through the the first line only, Nicole is not only a historical romance author but she also happens to be a virgin? Sold. Nope, I don't need to read any further because this book was just screaming fun and sexy read. And Tiffany King delivers those things and more. No joke, I inhaled this one. Once I cracked it open there was no chance of stopping to breathe much less eat, sleep or any of those other things a functioning human does. One hour turned into two which turned into four which turned into me finishing the book with a happy little sigh and a huge grin. --It was all fun and games until my next book, when I would write her in as a character and kill her off by dropping a meteor on her head. I love main characters like Nicole Blake. She's a bit awkward and a bit of an introvert at times. Though I feel like the best thing about Nicole is she is absolutely hilarious. She was very real and in a lot of ways I could see bits of myself at that age in her. She's a very relatable character. It was a lot of fun to watch her start to break out of her shell and put herself out there more. Be bold instead of hiding in her apartment behind her keyboard. --I'm sure an outsider listening to one of our conversations would seriously question our friendship. Words like whore and slutbag were regular terms of endearment for us. Nicole's best friend Olivia was just as fun as she was. I loved the friendship these two had. The way they interact with each other is just so me. I would totally be friends with either of them in real life. Olivia is also quite the meddler though which is always fun to read. I would crack up whenever she'd instigate a situation and then just never quite look Nicole in the eye out of guilt or trying to pretend she had no idea what was going on around her. --I would have been lying if I said having Alec playing the role of knight in shining armor was unpleasant in the slightest. Alec Petropoulos. That guy. When I wasn't wanting to do things to him that I should never, ever mention in public, I wanted to smack the crap out of him. I think I even had a status update on Goodreads that just said "Ass :(" Alec isn't perfect. He makes mistakes and I wanted to stay mad at him. I really tried. Once he would explain the reasoning behind the choices he's made I'd get it though. I still wanted to smack him and tell him that he was being an idiot and should have taken chances anyway, just because something turned out bad once doesn't mean it will again. Frustrating, yes, but I still love the guy. --It was time to put Operation Seduction into play. Oh. My. Word. Tiffany King can write the hell out of a steamy scene. The chemistry between Nicole and Alec is explosive. I've read books before where the virgin main character decides it's time to get rid of her V-card and quite frankly it's all just been a big trashy mess. This one is sweet and quirky and hilarious and very sexy. Instant favorite and I feel like everyone would enjoy this. People who are afraid of NA or haven't read any good NA in the past? This is the book for you!

Fun, witty and a good story that pulls you in and does not let you put the book down until the last page.

Tiffany King is an Amazing Author!!!!!! I have read everything by Tiffany King starting with her YA all the way up to more mature books. And I am so happy that I stick with Tiffany as a go to Author, because yet again I found a Book that I could not put down in “The Write Stuff”. Tiffany finds a way to give all her characters relatable substance. I love how the main character Nicole is so fun in her own ways, lovable to almost a fault, and just a character that I found myself noticing things that I had in common with. And then you through in a god of a man Alec that is the perfect balance of the good guy protector with a hit of a brooding past. This evolving love story has the right amount of give and take that just kept me reading page by page. This will defiantly be a book I keep on my re-read shelf.

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!
