My name is Aubrey Britton. I was your every day average nerdy book blogger, obsessed with the hot guys on the covers but lusting from afar. I knew I'd never meet a guy like the ones in my books, with muscles like that, with eyes like that, with a mouth like that.

I knew I was destined to be an old maid, get a bunch of cats, work at a book store and live in my fantasy world until the day I died.

Hot, steamy sex was something reserved for the girls in my books, not a girl like me.

Until the day I literally fell for Isaac James, the hottest man to grace the cover of any romance novel.

And he wanted a girl like me.
And he had muscles like that.
And eyes like that.
And a mouth like that...and was a filthy talking sex god in the bedroom.

But we both had our secrets and we both had our guarded pasts. When all was revealed, would the nerdy book blogger get the guy?

Or was I destined to be alone forever?

**Rated 18+ for insta-love, filthy talk, dirty sex and swoon worthy descriptions of the hottest man in the world.

Aubrey is a shy girl who loves books. Aubrey's parents were killed and now she lives with her Aunt Abby. Chloe is Aubrey's best friend. Chloe puts Aubrey down all the time and you instantly dislike her. 

Chloe needs attention on her at all times and is not happy if she is not the center of attention. So you can imagine Chloe was very unhappy when Isaac took a liking to Aubrey over her. 

Isaac is a model and adorns the covers of romance novels. His beautiful body with the glistening abs have girls swooning from all over. Aubrey cannot believe that Isaac would be interested in her PLAIN JANE, GIRL NEXT DOOR, NON-MODEL BODY. 

Aubrey and Isaac have a beautiful relationship and you feel the love from the beginning. Chloe is jealous and you can feel that as well. The author captured that feeling perfectly. You feel the character is malicious and up-to no good.

When Chloe bad actions reveal Isaac's secrets, their is no explanation that Aubrey can give. She looks guilty and it is over.

The question is can Aubrey and Isaac find there way back to each other and the perfect love the had.

Love the storyline. I was a bit confused on how Aubrey's parents died or maybe I just don't remember that part of the story. I think it was a little over the top with tragedy with the parents plus what happens with Abby not to mention Isaac's family and his secret. Just a little unrealistic that these two people would have that much turmoil in there world at such a young age and together.

Rating: 2 1/2 Stars

Happy Reading!
