Beach Read

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


"Original, sparkling bright, and layered with feeling..."—Sally Thorne, author of The Hating Game
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast. 

They're polar opposites. 

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She'll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he'll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  What a really fun read.  Perfect for summertime too.  Two authors who have known each other since college come together in an unusual way.  They bet each other that is not hard to write the genre the others write.  One thing leads to another and you have a book worth reading.  Quick, light, fun, humorous kind of read.
