AWRW Book Review: Trashy Romance Novel by Jacqueline E Smith @JackieSmith114 #IARTG #BookReview #Romance #TrashyRomanceNovel #AWellReadWoman

trnIt all started with a crush.
How cliché is that? I mean, of all the things to motivate a person to do something, how often does it go back to a silly infatuation? More often than most of us would probably care to admit.
Of course, this wasn’t an ordinary crush on a cute coworker or a charming friend of a friend I hooked up with at a party. No, I’ve never met the guy who inspired my books.
But I’m about to.

Delaney Brooks is the author of The Queen’s Surrogate, the “sinfully satisfactory” romance novel that swept readers around the world off their feet and into the fictional embrace of His Majesty, King Malcolm.
When her book is adapted into an eight-part miniseries, Delaney and her best friend Gemma fly to Scotland for what promises to be two months of lush green mountains, historic castles, and hot celebrity co-workers, including the gorgeous Matthew Kent, British playboy Benjamin Wyndham, and Hollywood’s hottest reformed rebel, Colin Ward.

A Well Read Woman Book Review

In Jacqueline E Smith’s tightly plotted contemporary romance, Trashy Romance Novel, Delaney Brooks writes medieval romance, hiding behind the pen name of Lorelei DuBois to protect her identity. When her book series The Surrogate is picked up for film, her and best friend Gemma venture out to Scotland where lo and behold, the object of her trashiest fantasies and the inspiration for her series is cast in a leading role.

What follows is a whirlwind romance set in the beautiful Scottish Highlands and a Hollywood scandal that threatens the identity that Delaney has struggled to keep.

Author Jacqueline E Smith effortlessly genre-hops from horror (Cemetery Tours series) to romance while still delivering the whimsical, almost poetic writing style I love about her storytelling. The setting of the Scottish Highlands was magnificent and the perfect backdrop for a romance. And the snippets of story within the story (The Surrogate) was fascinating and cleverly done.

I didn’t want this story to end and I hope to read many more romances from this talented writer in the future. Highly recommended.
