I am excited to be part of this blog hop for a couple of reasons.  First, I love reading, especially romance!  It’s been fun seeing the changes in the genre over the last few years, and it’s exciting to see all of the new authors and new twists on traditional romance tropes.  I’m also super geeked to see so many people giving romance a try, and I’m looking forward to meeting new readers and romance authors!

Isn’t She Lovely by Lauren Layne

Flirt New Adult Romance

On sale October 28, 2013


The rules are clear—until they’re broken. Lauren Layne puts a New Adult spin on Pygmalion, also the inspiration for Pretty Woman, and gives the classic love story its edgiest twist yet.

“Who knew that pretending you’re not falling for someone would be so much more difficult than pretending that you are?” 

Stephanie Kendrick gave up her whole summer to ace her NYU film school screenwriting course, so she’s pissed to be stuck with a preppy, spoiled frat boy as her writing partner. Then again, with her piercings, black-rimmed eyes, and Goth wardrobe, Stephanie isn’t exactly Ethan Price’s type, either. He’s probably got his eye on some leggy blonde with a trust fund . . . or does he?

As the summer scene kicks off in the Hamptons, Ethan is desperate to make his snobbish mother forget the pedigreed girl who broke his heart. While Stephanie’s a stretch as a decoy, the right makeover and a pastel cardigan just might do the trick. She may not love the idea of playing Ethan’s brainless Barbie girlfriend, but the free rent and luxurious digs make a tempting offer. So does the promise of a ready-made screenplay idea inspired by their charade.

But when Stephanie steps into Ethan’s privileged world, the “acting” begins to feel all too real. The kissing and touching that were intended to fool the Hamptons crowd wind up manipulating them. And Stephanie faces a question she’s too afraid to ask: Is Ethan falling for the real her or for the dolled-up princess he wants to see?

    I LOVE New Adult because it really speaks to a time in my life where I was still trying to figure things out. Reminds me of both the good and the bad. Love it!

    I think the reason I like NA is because it reminds me what it was like to be in my late teens/early twenties, young and carefree. Just deciding what I wanted to do with my life, trying new things, having fun 🙂

    Thanks 🙂

    I just love romance in general. If there is an HEA, I’m happy! 🙂

    I like New Adult stories since they have characters who are at a point in their life where everything is changing.

    Sounds interesting and I’m looking for a new fall read – love any genre and always looking for recommendations – this is perfect.

    While I love YA, I so enjoy the more mature situations in the New Adult books.
