Talk Bookish to Me
by Kate Bromley
Inspiration can come from the most unlikely—and inconvenient—sources.
Kara Sullivan’s life is full of love—albeit fictional. As a bestselling romance novelist and influential bookstagrammer, she’s fine with getting her happily-ever-after fix between the covers of a book.
But right now? Not only is Kara’s best friend getting married next week—which means big wedding stress—but the deadline for her next novel is looming, and she hasn’t written a single word. The last thing she needs is for her infuriating first love, Ryan Thompson, to suddenly appear in the wedding party. But Ryan’s unexpected arrival sparks a creative awakening in Kara that inspires the steamy historical romance she desperately needs to deliver.
With her wedding duties intensifying, her deadline getting closer by the second and her bills not paying themselves, Kara knows there’s only one way for her to finish her book and to give her characters the ever-after they deserve. But can she embrace the unlikely, ruggedly handsome muse—who pushes every one of her buttons—to save the wedding, her career and, just maybe, write her own happy ending?
“A fun and sexy romp, with chemistry that gave me all the feels!”—Jennifer Probst, New York Times bestselling author of Our Italian Summer
“Add this book to your TBR list immediately!”—Sarah Smith, author of Faker
It’s been a while since I’ve read “chick lit” contemporary romances, but after finishing the audiobook of Better Than the Movies, I was in the mood for more. And since I will pretty much read any book about books and book lovers, Talk Bookish to Me was my natural next-listen.
Talk Bookish to Me was so fun! I all for a good lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers romance, especially when the characters are so likeable. Both Kara and Ryan have some really great qualities that make them interesting individuals but also an amazing couple. I must say though that I think my favorite character is Duke, Ryan’s loveable rescue dog. There are times when he really steals the spotlight!
Not only did I love the premise and the characters, but I love how Kara’s life as an author and bookstagrammer was built into the story as well. I could totally relate to Kara as she searched for the right props and lighting for her photos.
Was the plot line a bit predictable? Yep. Did I care? Nope. Just like any good rom-com, in Talk Bookish to Me, you have fun with the characters and enjoy seeing them on their journey even if you know where it will end.
I give this book 4 Sips
