Miranda Rose absolutely lives for writing. Unfortunately, there aren’t many readers that live for her books.
At least she can distract herself from bad reviews with her favorite hobby – trolling Charlie Shivers online. That dinosaur smut peddler wouldn’t know literature if it mounted him from behind. And, for further distraction, she meets the world’s hottest guy at her favorite writing conference, and when he mounts her from behind, she forgets all about that wannabe author.
Until she realizes Mr. Hottie Pants isn’t the cover model she’d presumed. He’s her archenemy in the flesh, Charlie Shivers.
And yet she still can’t keep her pants on around him.
Joe McCoy, aka Charlie Shivers, is over the moon attending his first Romancing The World conference as a panelist, especially when he meets the smoking author at the bar. But now that he’s discovered the true identity of his one-night stand, he’s tangled in a sticky web, thicker than a spider shifter (dibs on writing that one next!)
Though, sleeping with the enemy is kind of hot.
But then he finds himself falling hard for the too-serious novelist, and now he’s pretty sure there’s no way he’ll make it out on top.
I am not gonna waste your time by talking about stuff that’s not really relevant and bore you. Bottom line is you SHOULD READ THIS!
Topped is a feel good romance that is designed for people like me who love reading about authors. Yeah, this is a romance between two authors, as you’ve probably already guessed. See, I’m a huge sucker for romance and I LOVE ALL THINGS READING AND BOOKS!
So, when you come across a romance between authors, you say HELL YES and jump in to read it, which is exactly what I did! And, I am so glad I did! This is one amazing book. Seriously.
The characters are cute and believable and funny as Hell. The way that their life and their story has been depicted has been done in a such a down to earth way that you can’t help but connect with them. It is awesome.
One thing I love about this story is how well Kayti has described the life of a writer. Everybody always assumes that it’s all sunshine and roses and that with all these books releasing everyday, there’s no chance that you won’t ever get published. But, the truth is that it is really, really difficult to break into the publishing world and there’s always so much effort that goes into everything a writer does to get their book out there.
And it’s also true that not many people appreciate books that are made out of heart. It is painful and crushing and heart wrenching. And all that is described in this book without making it too much or too less. The struggles, the failure, the sadness, the jealousy. It is all depicted so, so well in this story. It really is.
And of course, the romance is absolutely steamy! It is SO GOOOD. OH MY! And really, really sexy! I love it!
I love how the book is told in alternating POV with each chapter because you get to know the feelings of both the characters involved. Charlie’s inner monologue is absolutely hilarious. That was one of the highlights of the book. I really like how his character is shaped and I love that he’s so believable. Like, he’s not the perfect guy you envision will sweep you off of your feet, but he’s just so amazing that you’re swept off anyway. I really like him. He’s cute and adorable and sexy. But at the same time, he’s cocky and an idiot and jealous and envious and whatnot. All his emotions are capture beautifully through the course of the story. It really is amazing.
One more thing I adore about this book is it’s setting. Most of it takes place at a romance writer conference and wow! It is so awesome.
All in all, this is one amazing read. It’s super quick so it won’t take too much of your time. And it’s so cute and adorable and sexy that your heart is so full of smiles by the time you’re done, you just want to step into the book and hug the characters and like celebrate with them for finally getting together.
I totally recommend it to all you suckers for romance out there! 😀
