“Go out with a stereotypical romance novel hero WHO ISN’T YOUR TYPE.”

Avid reader and art student Steph is participating in a monthly blog challenge to Live Like Fiction, and this was the task for October. When Grayson, former co-captain of her university rugby team, walks into her class, she knows it’s meant to be – she has to go out with this guy. Even if she’s never been attracted to big, hunky, athletic types. With Grayson’s “player” reputation off the field, Steph thinks he’ll be good for one date that’ll be worth blogging about, and that’s it.

But you know how it goes: Soon, it becomes more than just one date – and Steph and Grayson are caught up in “living like fiction.” How long can they keep playing their roles before reality steps in?

The author offered a free ebook of any of her books to people who have watched and supported the Metro Manila Film Festival last December.

So I think this is by far the steamiest #romanceclass book I’ve read. Heck, the meet-cute was already something else, as it featured hot, confident and almost naked Grayson.

Grayson and Steph’s chemistry is organic (I don’t know if i’m even qualified to say this). But that’s it, they just work together really well.

Steph is a character I really, really enjoyed reading. I get her indecisions, the feeling of being stuck and overwhelmed, and being scared of what’s gonna happen next. We’re not really alike though, for one, the closest I got to making art are the drawings of forage and insects we drew for a laboratory class.

I also don’t consider myself a legit book blogger, I think of myself as someone that reads a lot, but only sometimes contributes to the blog. (I’m really sorry, Inah! Hahaha) I think I always have one foot out when it comes to blogging, but I get it, I get how you will be totally caught up in it, which is not necessarily bad though. This community is so amazing, with really diverse thoughts, and I can attest that the friends you meet in this community are just the most lovable and supportive people in the world.

Grayson is kinda too good to be true for me. He always appears so calm and so reasonable, he always says the right things, and he is so good at juggling things. I kind of envy him! Anyway, I still want him for a boyfriend though. Ha ha!

Delilah is my spirit animal, especially when she fangirled and stalked Steph’s relationship with Grayson so hard. She was so relatable and funny, plus the verbal whipping she gave Steph during the last parts of the book was fire (and on point)!

I also think Live Like Fiction is an amazing challenge. WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS! (Lol jk, I doubt if I can even go through one challenge)

This one has a good pace, it was light and easy to read, but it was really “exciting” (that is putting it very mildly, wink wink). Overall, this is a very enjoyable book to read, and I cannot wait to read more books my Ms. Mina!
