They say opposites attract, and what could be more opposite than a stuffy literary writer falling in love with a self-published romance writer?
Meet novelist Aaron Mite. He lives in a flea-infested rented alcove, and his girlfriend Emma, a combative bookstore owner, has just dumped him. He meets Laurie Lee at a writers’ colony and mistakenly believes her to be a renowned writer of important fiction. When he discovers she’s a self-published romance author, he’s already fallen in love with her.
Aaron thinks genre fiction is an affront to the fiction-writing craft. He likes to quotes the essayist, Arthur Krystal who claims literary fiction “melts the frozen sea inside of us.” Ironically Aaron doesn’t seem to realize that, despite his lofty literary aspirations, he’s emotionally frozen, due, in part, to a childhood tragedy. The vivacious Laurie, lover of flamingo-patterned attire and all things hot pink, is the one person who might be capable of melting him. In the tradition of the Rosie Project, Love Literary Style is a sparkling romantic comedy which pokes fun at the divide between so-called low and high brow fiction.
It was an entertaining and relaxing read. The author had me hooked from the very first, to the very last sentence. The plot is very well developed and intriguing, set in the magical and wicked world of publishing. Two writers meet at a gathering for writers and initiate a relationship. Meanwhile they are trying to make publish their books Aaron is a professor stubborn and finicky, he hates the improper use of words. His dream is to publish a book in her favorite genre, literary fiction. Laurie is a sunny and funny girl and loves to write love stories.They are two opposites that attract. I devoured this book! It was a quick read and just what I was in the mood for. The story is exciting, thrilling, enchanting and romantic. I really like the style of this author, is very sparkling and ironic, always she makes me laugh a lot. Her characters are special but very realistic For lovers of chick-lit this book is perfect
