Beach Read

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Book Summary:  January Andrews, author of a number of bestselling romance novels, no longer believes in love. Not only has she just lost her father, but she also found out that her parents’ marriage—the inspiration behind her books—was all a lie. Her father cheated on her mother for years, and January was the only one who didn’t know. This is the worst time for her agent to be hounding her for her next manuscript. What she needs is a summer retreat to a private house on Lake Michigan to work through her emotions and finally let her ideas flow.

But what she wasn’t expecting was to be neighbors with Augustus Everett, big-time literary writer and big-headed elitist, according to January. And she would know—they went to the same college and endured more than one writing class together. While January wrote perfect endings, Gus killed off all his characters. And he wasn’t shy about telling January exactly what he thought of her happily ever afters.

But it turns out they have more in common than their mutual disdain. Gus is also working on a book that’s going absolutely nowhere. To challenge themselves, or perhaps each other, they agree to switch genres. Augustus will write a gushy love story, and January will write about pain. But this simple writing exercise may just give them the happy ending they never thought they wanted.
