Book Description

Jude Patterson is a sexy but shy romance novelist who discovers the flowery language he's always used in historical love scenes doesn't translate well to contemporary romances. Alyssa Stone is a beautiful fan who offers to help him learn to write better love scenes.

Jude is fascinated by Alyssa, whose confident and sensual demeanor conceals a very vulnerable interior. Before long, he's the one showing her how to write love scenes... and maybe even how to write happy endings.

Length: Novella, 24,000 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put this down February 23, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't believe I'm saying this about a romance but this is so much more. It was a fantastic story. I downloaded a sample after reading a post by the author in a Kindle discussion forum. I was so engrossed in the story by the time I finished the sample I bought the book. Even my husband's grumbling at 2 am didn't take the joy out of reading the book that I finished a few hours later. I can't say much without ruining the story except that was well written, the formatting was perfect, and the characters were well developed. I found myself laughing at them on one page and feeling sorry for them on another, they were so likeable, I'll miss them. Thanks for a really enjoyable book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable story, wish it was longer March 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this story a lot, especially Jude, the hero. He was so cute and vulnerable. I loved that he wasn't your typical alpha male. He wasn't afraid to admit that he didn't sleep around and have lots of experience with the opposite sex. Alyssa was great in the way she was very bold initially and not afraid to make the first move, but at the same time, she had her own issues to deal with. Because I liked the characters, I just wish the story had been longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful & Touching! Couldn't stop reading. March 3, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Without giving anything away, there isn't much I can add to the other review. This isn't my normal type of romance but a post from the author in a forum, and the description made to choose to give it a chance. I'm so happy that I did.

I read it and laughed, I was touched, and I certainly could sympathize with Jude in certain moments. The characters that Ms. Fisher created are well written with great depth and as you read they will seem so real to you. Not just Jude and Alyssa but also Jude's brother Mark. I think anyone with a younger brother could understand the scenes between him and his brother.

A superb story, well formatted and a great read.

This was my first Ellen Fisher book and wasn't sure what to expect. I couldn't believe how quickly it grabbed me in! I wish it'd been a longer read....can't wait to begin another of her books. In fact, I've already purchased several more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy and romantic April 6, 2011
By Zzrole
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an amazing short read! The sex was very intimate and erotic, the character well developed for such a short story. The ending was a little abrupt but it was happy and it was necessary for the length. I didn't mind since she put so much heart into the rest of the story.
Jude is a romance novel author but his sex scenes are not very realistic when he starts writing contemporary. Alyssa is a fan of his work and is surprised that he's a man when she meets him at a book signing. (He writes under the name Judy). Alyssa decides to give him advice on the sex talk for his books. She seems like the aggressive sex kitten with no inhibitions and he is the inhibited guy with a lack of experience but we find out that what seems is not always what is. Jude discovers that Alyssa is really very vulnerable and his sweet, good guy character finally breaks down her a very sexy way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fun April 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Ms. Fisher definitely gets 4 stars for originality. I loved the premise and the slightly awkward hero. Plus he's a red-head! This is a short novel/novella, but showed a lot of promise. I felt the character development suffered some toward the middle/end of the book, and would have liked a little more discussion about the heroine's history to make the "crisis" more of a crisis. So, the plotting gets 3*. But this hero was such a great change of pace (and the sexual chemistry so good) that I give the story 4*

4.0 out of 5 stars Different... November 21, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Great story. The charaters and storyline are easily lovable. The take on sort of switching roles were a good twist. Having the male lead somewhat be the inexperienced was adorable.

I found this book really boring. Not much went into the writing of this book. The only good thing was that it was short.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read
The characters in this book are well-defined, and the analysis of how an author should "write what they know" is well-illustrated. On the whole, a good read.

Ellen Fisher packs an awful lot of story into a quick read - and great value at only 99c. Jude is that rare beast, a guy who writes popular romantic novels. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars I've read better romances by far
I'm surprised by the other reviews, this book was poorly written, the sex scenes were laughable. I feel like the " plot" was there as an excuse to write the sex scenes.
