I received an E-Arc by Netgalley and the publisher for an honest review.
Author: Max Monroe

A successful writer accidentally sends her new (and super-dreamy) editor the wrong manuscript. Instead of the full-length paranormal novel she promised Longstrand Publishing, she sends the fan fiction she’s written about her crush…on him—including every detail of the hot, steamy “physical activity” she’s fantasized about happening between them.
And Chase Dawson may be the hottest man alive and a super-talented editor to boot, but he’s completely oblivious that he’s the star of the manuscript he just convinced his boss to green-light.
Brooke Baker has been through a lot in her thirty-one years of life.
A career change.
A move to New York City from “small-town” Ohio.
Not to mention, she has a bit of a medical condition that involves occasional fainting spells, mild embarrassment, and the companionship of her adorable service dog and canine sidekick, Benji.
But none of it has prepared her for this.
None of it prepared her for Chase Dawson.
Strong jaw, blue eyes, cut muscles, and a perfect swoop of superhero-worthy black hair, Chase’s features are those of a book boyfriend and then some. Obviously, Brooke would know—she literally filled an entire manuscript with it.
A manuscript no one was ever supposed to see.
Will she survive two months of revising and editing the sizzling romance she imagined with Chase in extremely close quarters with him? Or will the constant white lies and overwhelming attraction make her spontaneously combust?
This story was so cute. It felt like a romantic comedy adventure. I could totally see this as a rom com movie. Hope a movie would be made from this. I can see it now. Although I’m not sure who I could cast.
It’s a slow burn. I love the build up between Chase and Brooke in the romance department. I love how they both help each other out in the little things. Both of them talk and are quirky with each other. They fit and they compliment each other. I really liked that. I liked how they are there for one another in the story. They do have steamy moments for each other but does that play out?
The book is written from Brooke and Chase point of view. It was funny and interesting to read! The pace is long so if you do read it be patient with the story.
I loved this line in the book “Fate is going to give me another opportunity. And this time, I’m going to try really hard not to vomit.”
Another part in the book I liked was when Brooke helped Chase deal with his ex-girlfriend. That had me laughing. It was the best ever!
Benji is the other character in this story who is Brooke’s dog. He’s a German Shepard who makes sure Brooke is okay with her health condition. I really thought this was good to be included in a story. Benji is an amazing character too. I love how Brooke talks to her dog like he can completely understand her. Such a nice connection there.
It’s a light, swoon, and laughing out loud read. Pick it up today if you want something like this.
