<— Yep! OH MY with that title 😉 and the title it used to have would have raised even more eyebrows. But the author can assure you… this is pure comedy romance (and yes… some steam to boot). In fact, the author is here sponsoring today’s newsletter + she’s sent us a 5 Fun Facts about the book. 😉
Here… let her Five Fun Facts tease you. 😉
1. Originally titled RATED-XXX, but was revised after being deemed too risqué for widespread distribution.
2. Inspired by my love of Judd Apatow comedies.
3. The first draft was finished while in labor with my firstborn son. <— sidenote from Maryse: OH MY!!! Now THAT is something to behold!!
4. Took four years to publish, from conception to completion.
The author says:
No cheating, love-triangles, or outright character stupidity. I’d describe the book as a romantic comedy with a pinch of angst.
So what’s it about?
So let’s back-track a bit.
I’m Bailey Finch: twenty-four, living in LA, and working as the lowly Calendar Editor for a trendy Love & Relationships magazine – think Cosmo on methamphetamines. I mostly take coffee orders.
I’m also woefully body-conscious, clinically anxious, and still a virgin. Not the cute, quirky sort, either. I’m a borderline train-wreck on my best days, and a dumpster fire on my worst.
Cue Elijah Mattox: salacious film star prodigy, wanna-be mainstream actor, and arguably the best career opportunity to possibly fall into my lap.
Or at least, that’s how it started – there was something much bigger yet to come.
HOT WET TRAINWRECK: A bad boy. A hot mess. A romantic comedy.
