Review ~ Writing Mr Right by TK Leigh

Book Description:

A brand new sexy, flirty Stand Alone Rom Com from USA Today Bestselling author T.K. Leigh!

My name is Molly Brinks, but most people know me as Vivienne Foxx, bestselling author of chance meetings, stolen glances, and the much-needed happily ever after. My addictions include coffee, home improvement television, and the occasional pint of ice cream. The love of my life is an eighty-pound labrador retriever named Pee Wee. 

At the age of twenty-nine plus one, I am at the top of my game…professionally. My personal life is a completely different story, one best left untold. Success has its sacrifices and I’ve been more than happy to put my search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed student finding their own Mr. Right… 

Until one hell of a case of writer’s block and a tight deadline set by my publisher forces me outside of my cozy downtown Boston apartment in search of inspiration.

Armed with an account on every dating website out there, I devise a plan… Meet some nice, professional men. Go on a few dates. Hope one of them has the spark I need to finish my book. Then walk away.

But plans are meant to be broken.

My name is Molly Brinks, and this is my story about Writing Mr. Right.

“…real love isn’t real life.”

This was one of those books that caught my attention from the funky cover. I was in desperate need of a pick me up and this one looked like it could do the job, especially once I read the synopsis. For some reason, I am drawn to books about authors, maybe for that chance to glean info or maybe just because I find it fascinating. Anyhow, our heroine is a peddler of smut, and writers block is kicking her arse. Sometimes it is hard to write about something you have little to no experience of, I’m not talking about the smut, our heroine has her means, but the love, the love was severely lacking and something that she frankly did not believe in. With hilarious dialogue and even a few errant tears in this Rom Com I laughed, I swooned and I cried…perfect!

“I felt like a tourist in my own life, each guy I slept with just another site to see in my travels.”

Molly Brinks is a column writer by day, covering all manners of topics, usually of the sexual variety. By night, Molly Brinks turns into Vivienne Foxx, an erotica author that has hit all the lists and is currently under contract for more books of her “filth.” The publishing house only publishes erotica with a happily ever after, something that Molly is finding harder and harder to pen. Her blasé attitude to love being the main bone of contention and her lack of a muse being the other. Really though, her creativity is being stifled by the cookie cutter books that her publisher wants her to put out. It is the same shit different day scenario. Groundhog Day.

“Even iron can melt if it gets hot enough.”

Dr Noah McAllister is a neurologist, specialising in Alzheimer’s and other brain degenerative diseases. Noah crosses paths with Molly at the nursing home that is currently looking after her Alzheimer riddled father. Being her father’s doctor means that Molly is off-limits, ethics and all that, but friendly chats and chance meetings soon open these two up to those sparks, and boy do these sparks fly. Noah was adorable, seriously adorable. He knew when to push and when to hold back. When others would have run a mile, he stayed and fought. Noah was patient yet persistent, understanding, thoughtful and an all-round good guy. He was incredibly hard not to love. Just everything about him screamed...LOVE ME.

“Why was the one man who made me rethink my opinion on relationships the one man I could never have?”

What I loved about this book was how it all felt natural, organic and real. Real people, real life and real problems. The banter and dialogue between Molly and Noah was on point, it was honest, it was funny, it was swoony. It made me laugh, it made me sigh, it made me cry. Real life situations that unfortunately I have my own experience of and could whole heartedly relate to. And yet, it had morals, many morals to this story and many laid to rest. How life isn’t what it seems and the people closest go above and beyond to protect. The family dynamic in this book was heart-warming. Bonds that could never be broken and a family that would do anything for anyone. The relationship between Molly and her brother was inspiring, I truly felt a part of this family and that is kudos to TK Leigh, she brought these characters to life and for me, are ones that will stay with me permanently. I loved everything about this book and this is an author I will definitely be reading again.

“What if your pages full of reasons we shouldn’t be together are no match for my one reason we should? What if all your reasons, taken as a whole, pale in comparison?”
