Emory Blake is the ultimate bibliophile. She’d take curling up with a good novel over a night on the town any day of the week. But then best friend Tate Woodby accuses her of living between the pages of her paperbacks instead of the real world, and makes a bet that will force her to experience the adventures of her fictional friends…instead of just reading about them. With her face no longer buried in books, Emory must confront the pain of the past. But is it also her perfect opportunity to discover the hunky hero who could be the happily-ever-after of her own story?
I’ve heard several good things about Sarah Monzon, and I’m a sucker for cute book covers, so I was excited to read this novella. It’s wasn’t completely captivating, but it was fun to read. I like to become so engrossed in the characters that I blush when they blush and I cry when they cry; this book didn’t pull me in like that. I enjoyed reading about the characters, but I didn’t really connect with them. Not quite a Hallmark movie, it was more like a one-hour episode of a CW series — not a lot of depth, but sweet and entertaining. I’m sure I’ll read another of her books soon.
