Children's librarian by day. Romance novelist by night.
British single father.
Someone else is writing this love story...
Blair Walton isn't your average curvaceous tattooed children's librarian. She's also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she's afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That's why she and Raine write in secret.
On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and "do some research". Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He's British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair's not the only one with secrets.
Unwritten is a really fun read. It’s got some pretty good characters, and quirky friends.
I really liked Blair. She’s not supermodel thin, and I think she appeals to how many women really are. I love that she’s a tattooed, librarian beauty. I really like characters I can connect with. I also love that she doesn’t let the fact that she writes books get to her head. She wants that life to be completely separate from her world outside of writing. I also love her bestie, Raine. She’s so funny, and definitely the most devious of the two. Declan is a sweet guy. He does over the top things when it comes to Blair. I love how they interact with each other from the moment they first meet.
There were some areas where I think the pacing was a little fast, but there was a whole lot of story to fit into one book. I like how easy going Blair is around Declan. She feels like she can be herself and not live up to the expectations of her family. There are a lot of things going on in Blair’s personal life, and I think she handled them all well. I love when characters get to know each other too. Things may seem fast paced in some places, but Declan and Blair talk about pretty much everything.
All in all, it was a great read, and there were some tears in a few spots.
