Smut: A Romantic Comedy Book Cover Smut: A Romantic Comedy
Karina Halle

Smut is a standalone, tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy from the NYT bestselling author of The Pact.

What happens when the kink between the pages leads to heat between the sheets?

All Blake Crawford wants is to pass his creative writing course, get his university degree and take over his dad's ailing family business. What Amanda Newland wants is to graduate at the top of her class, as well as finish her novel and prove to her family that writing is a respectful career.

What Blake and Amanda don't want is to be paired up with each other for their final project but that's exactly what they both get when they're forced to collaborate on a writing piece. Since Amanda thinks Blake is an arrogant jerk (with a panty-melting smirk and British accent) and Blake thinks Amanda has a stick up her (tight, round) bottom, they fight tooth and nail. That is until they discover they write well together. They also might find each other really attractive, but that's neither here nor there.

When their writing project turns out to be a success, the two of them decide to start up a secret partnership using a pen name, infiltrating the self-publishing market in the lucrative genre of erotica. Naturally, with so much heat and passion between the pages, it's not long before their dirty words become a dirty reality. Sure, they still fight a lot but at least there's make-up sex now.

But even as they fall hard for each other, will their burgeoning relationship survive if their scandalous secret is exposed or are happily-ever-afters just a work of fiction?

NOTE ABOUT THE BOOK: Smut has coarse language and many explicit scenes of a sexual nature (sensitive readers be advised). However, the title of Smut is tongue-in-cheek, and this book should not be considered erotica.

Being an official nerd girl myself, I absolutely adored the leading lady, Amanda, and all her inner-geekiness. She is completely adorkable. Even at the start of the story as a repressed (sexually and otherwise) girl trying hard to fit in – I found her easy to empathize with. Hers is definitely a butterfly story.
Of course no leading lady pervy-nerd-girl is complete without a cocky leading gentlemanwhore.
Blake is her perfect match made in “I think I hate you” heaven. He’s charming and funny and acts out in all the right ways. With a repressed inner-nerd of his own he is the kind of hero that makes my heart race – especially when he whips out his penis perversion &/or brain 😉
There is an amazing chemistry that happens between the characters, and as a reader I felt swept up in it as well.

If you want to know what happens in the book – read the blurb. What I will tell you is that this entire book is completely tongue-in-cheek (wink, wink) and full of humor. It’s Karina’s first romantic comedy, but if you’ve read any of her other books, you’ll know that this isn’t a hard feat – many of her stories include light-hearted fun. There is an under-lying air of seriousness as some of the feelings and themes here represent life changing hurdles. But overall, it’s a wonderfully easy read that left me feeling warm and fuzzy horny. LMAO!

I recommend this for everyone.
