Maya has always daydreamed, mostly
about romance and adventure. So this is what she
continually writes about as this is what she knows. But the
creative writing class she is in seems to be determined to
crush her spirit and make her write something else. At one
point, Maya is almost in tears about their feedback and
belittling of a genre that she feels strongly about.
During one startling conversation and
meeting with her professor, she finds that there might be
more to him that she originally thought. She was already
attracted to this man almost twice her age, now what will
she do? Can she turn her daydreams into reality?
I have mixed emotions about
Paperback Romance by Selena Kitt, which for me is
different as I usually either really like or dislike a
story. But this one has found a way into a neutral
category. The overall storyline and premise is great and
the writing is fantastic. Here is the “but”: I thought the
tone of the overall story was ruined by the erotic scene.
It felt like it had to be added to meet a genre, as the rest
of the story was “sweet,” including the cover.
Paperback Romance is one that you might find
interesting, though I was neutral.
