Title: Beach Read
Author: Emily Henry
Type: Romance, Contemporary
Oh what a cute, quick and fun read this was! I loved all the characters in this book so much. January Andrews is a writer of romance and happily ever after endings. Augustus ‘Gus’ Everett is a write of literary fiction. The only thing they have in common is that they are both suffering from writer’s block. Oh and they happen to be living next door to each other for the next three months. They strike a bet. During those three months, Gus will write a rom-com book and January will write the novel of a lifetime. They spend weekends doing research trips together. The research will help them on their novels. Whoever writes and sells their book first, wins. The only rule they have, do not fall in love.
This book was fun, sexy, and so cute! I couldn’t put it down and found myself wishing I could continue to follow these characters and their life after I finished. I loved how these characters brought out the best qualities in each other. I loved that the author took time to develop the romance. The building of the relationship is my favorite part of any romance. I have nothing but good to say about this book! It’s perfect for summer!
