They say opposites attract, and what could be more opposite than a stuffy literary writer falling in love with a self-published romance writer?
Meet novelist Aaron Mite. He lives in a flea-infested rented alcove, and his girlfriend Emma, a combative bookstore owner, has just dumped him. He meets Laurie Lee at a writers’ colony and mistakenly believes her to be a renowned writer of important fiction. When he discovers she’s a self-published romance author, he’s already fallen in love with her.
Aaron thinks genre fiction is an affront to the fiction-writing craft. He likes to quotes the essayist, Arthur Krystal who claims literary fiction “melts the frozen sea inside of us.” Ironically Aaron doesn’t seem to realize that, despite his lofty literary aspirations, he’s emotionally frozen, due, in part, to a childhood tragedy. The vivacious Laurie, lover of flamingo-patterned attire and all things hot pink, is the one person who might be capable of melting him. In the tradition of the Rosie Project, Love Literary Style is a sparkling romantic comedy which pokes fun at the divide between so-called low and high brow fiction.
My Book Review:
If you are looking for a Southern romantic comedy that has a mixture of wit and charm, then look no further, Love Literary Style is the book for you.
Author Karin Gillespie weaves a delightfully lighthearted tale set in Georgia that follows the opposites attract romance relationship between literary author Aaron Mite and romance author Laurie Lee. Aaron and Laurie meet at a writers retreat and hit it off immediately, but a case of mistaken identity and opposing / clashing genres leads to hilarious trials and tribulations that Aaron and Laurie need to overcome in order to find a common ground that will lead them to a happily ever after ending.
Love Literary Style is an entertaining romantic comedy that will keep the reader in stitches. You can't help but follow Aaron and Laurie's story as their relationship becomes complicated due to their opposing genres, and cheer them on as they seek common ground and a lasting love.
Author Karin Gillespie weaves a witty tale that is full of sass and charm, it's tongue-in-cheek humor pokes fun at the literary world, and will keep the reader thoroughly engaged and smiling to the very end.
Love Literary Style is simply rom-com at its very best!
