Book Review: Smut

Smut-AMAZON-Copy.jpg

Synopsis:

When I first met Blake Crawford, all I wanted to do was hit him in the face.
Maybe the groin.
Okay, maybe I wanted to kiss him too, but that’s neither here nor there. I mean, he may have a gorgeous English accent, sexy full lips and an ass I’d like to bite but…
Where was I?
Right.
Being in the same creative writing class, he’s the last person I wanted to speak to, let alone be paired up with for my final assignment.
But here comes the kicker…not only did our project end up getting us both As but we found out we work well together.
Really well together.
I hate him and he hates me and yet we churn out gold.
We’ve started writing self-published erotica under a pen name and let me tell you one thing…
Writing dirty sex scenes with the sexiest, most infuriating man you know is a lot harder than you think.
And keeping our hands off each other?
Well that’s another story…one with an ending I didn’t see coming.

Review

Smut was a quick, fun read. The novel is told in alternating point of views between Amanda and Blake. This was your typical “I hate you but come to love you” kind of story. Amanda doesn’t like Blake because he’s a playboy that sleeps his way through most of the women in their writing class. Blake doesn’t like Amanda simply because she doesn’t like him. Naturally, they’re forced to work together for the final project of their class and they realize that just like with most people there’s more to each other than their perceived notions.

I think my biggest issue with this book was the reason why Blake and Amanda started writing erotica together. It felt like when they finished their writing project that could’ve been the end of the book except for the fact that Amanda and Blake weren’t together yet. So the last half of the book felt a bit forced, as if the author realized she needed some reason for Blake and Amanda to finally hook-up so she added the writing secret erotica together storyline. Similarly, I thought the inevitable moment when Blake and Amanda finally acknowledged they had feelings for each other was a bit anticlimactic. I expected something bigger and to me that part just fell flat.

Overall, I did find Smut to be a cute and funny read but I probably wouldn’t ever read it again. The smut in Smut was also well done so that’s also a plus. Still, this wasn’t an all time favorite for me.

Stars:

3 stars

Favorite Line:

“She doesn’t have my affection, my future, or my heart. You do, Amanda. You do.”
