"Sparklingly bright." —Sally Thorne, USA Today bestselling author of The Hating Game
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.
They're polar opposites.
In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.
Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She'll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he'll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

This was a delightful romance and so much more than the stereotypical "beach read". January Andrews is a romance writer with a bad case of writers block - she doesn't believe in romance after discovering her father had an affair. While cleaning out her father's other house, January discovers that her neighbour is none other than her college nemesis, who is a "serious" writer. The two strike up a deal and reconnect, and January discovers that her so called nemesis might just be something more.

This was the perfect read. January and Gus were characterized so perfectly and their witty banter was to die for. This is the perfect rom-com with meat. If you liked The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, this one is for you.
