HOW HARD CAN IT BE BY ROBYN PETERMAN
What happens when an accountant decides to grab life by the horns and try something new? Apparently a pirate named Dave, a lot of pastel fleece, and blackmail—just to start with…
Visualize and succeed, Oprah said. I was sure as hell trying, even if my campaign to score a job as the local weather girl had ended in a restraining order. Okay, TV was not my strength. But a lack of talent has never stopped me before. Which is why I’ve embarked on a writing career. I mean, how hard can it be to come up with a sexy romance?
Leave it to me to wind up in a group of grandmotherly porno writers who discuss sex toys and apple cobbler in the same breath. Also leave it to me to leak an outlandish plot idea to a bestselling author with the morals of a rabid squirrel. And only I could get arrested for a jewelry heist I didn’t commit—by a hunky cop whose handcuffs just might tempt me to sign up for a life of crime. Maybe I’ve found my calling after all....
Angie E's Review:
I was absolutely THRILLED to get an ARC copy of this book. I couldn’t wait to get into it. Robyn is such a comedic person. She’s hilariously funny. When I started this book I thought eh I’m not going to like this there is too many people involved in the story, and the humor was there just not my type of humor and it was hard for me to keep up. As I continued to read I found myself being sucked into every character and their stories. I kept wanting to go further to find out about their past. Rena (the main heroine) is AWESOME . She find herself in a somewhat ODD situation that leads her to meet the man of her dreams LITERALLY. Rena is trying to save her friends from the HORRIBLE wicked Evangeline and still maintain a sex life. Which by the way……. THE SEX SCENES…………..SMOKING SPICY HOT……..ICE MELTING……MOUTH WATERING…..Robyn not only knows how to write a comedy but DAMN she can write an awesome detailed SEX SCENE. The sex between Jack ( Rena’s dream man) and Rena literally makes me want to grab my own on man and do a little re-enacting =) . The humor of this story quickly grew on me and I was pissing myself by the end. Seriously who came up with PORK SWORD? Not only do you get a hilarious romantic, sexy comedy you get mystery, blackmail, mixed in with some suspense. It’s the perfect recipe for an award winning book. I will say Robyn is a FREAKING GENIOUS to come up with a story within a story and have other side stories going on and it just MESHES well with each other. Oh and her mind….. Well it scares me just a little…. OK IT SCARES ME A LOT….
About the Author:
Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.
A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable. You can follow Robyn at robynpeterman.com.
