Children's librarian by day. Romance novelist by night.
British single father.
Someone else is writing this love story...

Blair Walton isn't your average curvaceous tattooed children's librarian. She's also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she's afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That's why she and Raine write in secret.

On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and "do some research". Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He's British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair's not the only one with secrets.

Well that pretty much sucked. I’ve never been so irritated, frustrated and annoyed by a book, all at the same time. It started out fantastic but ultimately the romance screwed it up big time for me. Which is ironic since it’s a romance book.

I don’t even want to bother explaining what it’s about. It’s not very original. I thought it was though. The main character, whose name I already forgot and I just finished it a few minutes ago and her best friend write books under the name Scarlet Rose. Naturally she’s out of inspiration when a hot british guy shows up in the library she works in. He has a kid, who is about the best character in this book and a big part of that one star. He asks her out on a Monday for that same day.

They end up doing the nasty a lot that first night. Which is really absurd. There’s no build-up at all! They go out on very expensive dates and have sex a lot, most of which is fade-to-black sex and that’s very annoying in this kind of book. I didn’t believe it for a second! They constantly say they don’t want it to be serious and just casual, but then they do those expensive dates and he invites her to have dinner with him and his son, which is not something you do with someone you just have sex with. Obviously.


I honestly didn’t get the main character. (Seriously, what is her name again?) She’s one of the first characters that I can relate to a lot when it comes to body, but I didn’t. She’s confident and self-conscious about her body all at the same time. One second she doubts herself and the next she’s overflowing with confidence. And she’s crazy about that guy instantly. Like insta-love crazy.

My main problem was the hot british love interest. He’s way too perfect! Seriously, he didn’t do a single thing wrong at all. Early on in the book part of the library where the main character works in is destroyed by a fire and at first I thought it’d be the guy because I didn’t trust him (because of his too-perfectness). I thought he’d end up being a psychopath or something but nothing. Sure he has done one minor thing wrong in his past which lead to his divorce but honestly, it wasn’t that big a deal. I also expected there to be much more drama surrounding his divorce, but again, nothing. Maybe I just have bad experiences, but guys like that don’t exist. Everyone has flaws. Even hot british guys.

Last thing, this was way too boring. Nothing happened! The fire in the library didn’t make sense at all! It happened but it had no influence on the story at all. It was like the author decided to burn down the MC’s part of the library so she wouldn’t have to go to work and that way the author wouldn’t have to work that in the story anymore because it’d be in the way. Then something happens that’s supposed to be dramatic but I didn’t care at all.


This could have been so perfect! The main character is a curvy girl covered in tattoos that all have something to do with literature, she works in a library and she writes books. That’s about as relatable as it gets to me. But in the end I didn’t even remember her name. What a disappointment. Guess it doesn’t always pay off to finish a book when you’re not liking it from the start. Also, that cover and title don’t make sense for the book either.

Unwritten could have been great but instead with was annoying, frustrating and full of typos. I couldn’t care less about the romance and I’ve already forgotten the name of the main character. Some people seem to like it, but if it were up to me, I’d say skip this one. There are tons of better books out there in the genre.
