Smut: A Standalone Romantic Comedy
Smut: A Standalone Romantic Comedy | Karina Halle
17 posts | 21 read | 1 reading | 7 to read
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 considering erotica.

Absolutely the best book I've read this summer. Funny, hot and smart! A book about erotic romance writers that will teach us all a thing or two about the genre so many people talk trash about 😍
I love Smut ❤

A fun and sexy escape! Though it's predictable (I feel like most romcoms are), Halle is sort of playing off the genre by writing about a guy and girl who are writing erotica and getting involved in the romance writing world despite thinking it might be beneath them. Good chemistry with the characters, truly funny at times, and well-written!

Taking a quick break from Richard Paul Evans and Christmas with a book in the complete opposite direction.

Not the best book I've ever read, but I enjoyed it as an audiobook that's nice and easy to listen to while multitasking. Found myself laughing out loud at many different places and that isn't something I often do.

Useless facts I have learned from books # 34828 (in case you're wondering it is apparently a cross and NOT a sword 😂)

Needed a new audiobook to start listening to for my evening walk last night so I got this per recommendation of Hoopla. I previously listened to The Pact on Hoopla and enjoyed it so I'm hoping this will be a good choice. I was laughing out loud during my walk at the Prologue so I guess that's a good sign!Oh and I am totally already digging the English accent of the male narrator - I could listen to that for days😍

I have been looking forward to reading this book despite it's risqué title - I love enemies to lovers storylines with sassy main characters. So when I saw I could rent the audiobook through my library I was ecstatic! But these narrators...I thought the one for Amanda was bad & was hoping that Blake's would save it for me. But dear Lord, Blake is even worse! This is a prime example of why I have audiobook trust issues. I just can't. *shudders* ?

GirlNamedJesse The narrator makes ALL the difference! 3y

bookwrm526 I have returned several books to Audible because I just couldn't deal with the narrator 3y
ReadingEnvy Ha I listened to another Halle in audio. With contemporary Scottish rogue love interest of course. 3y
Carol Stacking with the intent of getting it in print. I would bail on a terrible narration, too! 3y
