Writing Mr. Right
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A romance author with a serious case of writer's block.
A plan to find a muse, write the book, then walk away.
But plans are meant to be broken.
My name is Molly Brinks, but most people know me as Vivienne Foxx, bestselling author of chance meetings, stolen glances, and the much-needed happily ever after. At the age of twenty-nine-plus-one, I am at the top of my game...professionally.
My personal life is a completely different story, one best left untold. Success has its sacrifices and I've been more than happy to put my search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed student finding their own Mr. Right...
Until one hell of a case of writer's block and a tight deadline set by my publisher forces me to go in search of inspiration.
Armed with an account on every dating website out there, I devise a plan. Meet some nice, professional men. Go on a few dates. Hope one of them has the spark I need to finish my book. Then walk away.
But plans are meant to be broken.
My name is Molly Brinks, and this is my story about Writing Mr. Right.
So many feels!
Writing Mr. Right is supposed to be a romantic comedy. It certainly is funny. I never knew what outrageous thing Molly was going to say. Molly and Noah's story is much more that. At times it was so poignantly sad. Molly is a romance writer that doesn't believe in love. It's a slow painful journey that turns her world upside down , but it's such an incredible journey. This book has so many feels that it made me who never cries to cry. This book is worth every one of its five stars!

This book runs the gamut of emotions!
I love the concept that T.K. brings us in this book, a woman named Molly writing under a pen name who has lost her writing mojo. Suffering from writer's block, she resorts to her tried and true formula of hooking up with a guy who fits the mold of the leading man in her current work in progress. Burned out on writing the "sexy, sweet & sinful" stories her publisher demands from her because that is what sells, she longs to stretch her writing chops and tell a story with substance.
T.K. always does a great job of writing complex, in depth characters. Molly is a hoot. She's a "twenty nine plus one" year old woman with a mouth that has no filter, which made for a ton of laugh out loud moments in this book. She has a very skewed view of love, having always believed that "real love isn't real life" after her mother abandons her family when she's four. So her concept of only using guys for sex and to be her current book muse has worked perfectly for her all these years.
In the concept of art imitating life, Molly starts feeling a forbidden attraction to her father's doctor, Noah McAllister. What can I say about Noah other than he is swoon worthy!! Holy wow, he can examine me any time!
This story has some of everything. Yes, there's laughter and good times with her family, but there's also some pretty heavy times when dealing with her father's illness, and her lifelong issue of her mother's abandonment. Family plays a major role in Molly's life, and her brother Drew, best friend Brooklyn and her Aunt Gigi were an amazing support team to her.
I really enjoyed seeing the relationship between Molly and Noah grow, but oftentimes Molly frustrated the tar out of me with the decisions she made and the immaturity she displayed even though she's thirty years old. I could totally understand how her behavior stemmed from events in her childhood, for the most part, but her constant running from Noah became too repetitive for me, hence the frustration.
I've read all of T.K.'s books and this one was a nice change of pace from the romantic suspense she has so masterfully crafted. I have loved all of her books and this is no exception. It was nice to see her move in a different direction and I know that people are going to absolutely enjoy this story. And I can't wait to see what T.K. has in store for Molly's brother Drew and best friend Brooklyn. That book has me super intrigued!
If I could give this more then 5 stars I would. Phenomenal..

This book brought tears to my eyes, made me laugh like no other. A moving book to be assured. It just flowed and unfolded into the most beautiful love story between a women, Molly Brinks who had found her Mr. Right a man who was dedicated to finding a cure to a disease which touched her father as well as his. Noah McAllister may have been her muse but he was so much more. They shared a bond.
See what happens between them it's truly amazing...
Most highly recommended.
