SYNOPSIS: (From Goodreads)
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?

I always, ALWAYS get excited when I see publisher emails with new books in it that are up for review. I never know what authors that I am going to get. So when I got the email for the summer books, I was excited to see a new author with the title Talk Bookish to Me. I am a huge book nerd. My to-be-read piles are off the charts and are constantly growing.
Kara is a romance author. She spends her day in a world of perfect endings. She got her heart broke in college by the love of her life and her first love. Imagine her surprise as the love of her life shows up at the wedding party of her best friend as the groom’s friend and groomsman. One thing leads to another and they are back to the way they used to be until the wedding when all things change and come to a screeching halt. This book was sooo good. It was a nice refreshing pace for me. I haven’t read a romance book in about 15 books. I have been on a fiction kick and reading a lot of other things. I loved the banter that the main character had. It made me giggle.
I felt the huge letdown that Kara felt when her world came crashing down again when things happened at the wedding. I have been in her shoes. When you think things are going to go one way and have your life planned out and then that comes to a screeching halt. I loved how the author wrote in bits and pieces of Kara’s book as she went. That must have been hard. Writing a story within a story. I loved that she went to Italy for 6 months and feel in love with the same person back home. It took her going away to realize that she really did love Ryan. I hope that this author writes more books in the future. I will definitely be reading them if she does.
