Publisher's Summary

A USA Today Best Book of 2021!

"Bromley does a deft job at keeping the twists and turns of this reunion realistic and utterly romantic.” (USA Today)

Inspiration can come from the most unlikely - and inconvenient - sources.

Kara Sullivan’s life is full of love - albeit fictional. As a best-selling romance novelist and influential bookstagrammer, she’s fine with getting her happily-ever-after fix between the covers of a book.

But right now? Not only is Kara’s best friend getting married next week - which means big wedding stress - but the deadline for her next novel is looming, and she hasn’t written a single word. The last thing she needs is for her infuriating first love, Ryan Thompson, to suddenly appear in the wedding party. But Ryan’s unexpected arrival sparks a creative awakening in Kara that inspires the steamy historical romance she desperately needs to deliver.

With her wedding duties intensifying, her deadline getting closer by the second and her bills not paying themselves, Kara knows there’s only one way for her to finish her book and to give her characters the ever-after they deserve. But can she embrace the unlikely, ruggedly handsome muse - who pushes every one of her buttons - to save the wedding, her career and, just maybe, write her own happy ending?

"A fun and sexy romp, with chemistry that gave me all the feels!" (Jennifer Probst, New York Times best-selling author of Our Italian Summer)

"Add this book to your TBR list immediately!" (Sarah Smith, author of Faker)

Great rom-com...

Talk Bookish To Me was a great rom-com that would make an outstanding summer read. It is PG and keeps you interested. Just when you think it’s about to be predictable it doesn’t. I look forward to reading what Kate Bromley writes next.

Bad

👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
The narrator sure did go all in on the different accents. Not always in the best way but I have to give her credit for committing.
The story… was poo. The MC was a dummy and so was the love interest. Reckless and inconsiderate.

Not as good as I had hoped

The story and plot just didn’t hit the mark. The character of Ryan was completely unlikable throughout the entire story. I was actually rooting for the other guy she meets later on in the story.

The narration of Kara was great, but the male voice was poor. I’m not sure if she got the accent from watching House of Cards, but I feel that contributed to part of my dislike of Ryan.

Finally, I still don’t understand why she took him back after what he’s done. I suppose I’m getting tired of the arrogant men in books getting away with bad behavior and the women in the end saying it’s ok because they’re in love. Really? I’m all for forgiveness but it has to be deserved.
