Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic Now she deals with twenty four hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year She s surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor is what keeps her sane The insane don t know they re insane Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor and don t get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch She gave up on that a long time ago When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores But she enjoys living in her own head, so that s pretty cool.

    4 4.5 sThis is a story about an independent paranormal romance writer that gets picked up by a large publishing company On her way to New York for a book signing, she literally gets run down by the man she typecast for the Hero of her series He just happens to not know who she is and when he starts talking to her about the author of the book and how she must be crazy which she is just a bit touchy about , she decides to NOT give him her pen name Unfortunately, they both start falling for 4 4.5 sThis is a story about an independent paranormal romance writer that gets picked up by a large publishing company On her way to New York for a book signing, she literally gets run down by the man she typecast for the Hero of her series He just happens to not know who she is and when he starts talking to her about the author of the book and how she must be crazy which she is just a bit touchy about , she decides to NOT give him her pen name Unfortunately, they both start falling for each other and she struggles to find the right time to tell him the truth I really enjoyed Xanthe for most of the bookshe was very independent and strong and could take care of herself despite going through some horrific things and having amazing friends and family she could lean on Oliver for the most part was very sweet and charming However, he has never been in love and it s extremely obvious He has become Super Alpha and while very loving, it was also a bit annoying The sex was very hot though It was wonderful getting to know Xanthe s family and close circle of friends but slowly we find out that there sto them than meets the eye Things take a sort of morbid twist and I m not sure I really liked that However, it does help you getof an idea about the Hero in the next book, Ten Thousand Lies While I would have been happy with just the quirks of dating an author, the quirks of a metro sexual dating afree spirited person and the quirks of dealing with a jealous non girlfriend hookup, the story has the aforementioned dark side in addition to a crazy stalker and the requisite bitchy relative Besides the dark twist, I really enjoyed the story I love the depth the author puts into her work and all the details she brings in I especially loved the part of the story that was the basis for the title of the book Sooo romantic I am interested in the next book, let s just hope it s not too dark Favorite quote This is the happiest I have ever been You rethan just my woman You re my best friend You re what I look forward to after I finish work and what I dream about when I fall asleep When I wake up and see you, my day is already made

He s kind of her muse This sexy brooding man is who she see s when her stories take her away When it s time to make the cover for her book no other man will do but Oliver.When Oliver and Xanthe first met. Oliver was pretty much a jerk and Xanthe was very unimpressed. so she kept her identity a secret Not letting Ollie know that she was the author putting him on the cover of her book Oliver manages to apologize for his jerkiness and Xanthe eventually is swayed by his charm However, she keeps her secret for a while Ollie does eventually find out and from that point forward we are swept up into one of the most combustible, sexy, heart squeezing stories Their relationship was like fire with both being so hard headed at times But their chemistry now that was just like a bomb waiting to ignite And their feelings for each other just jumped off the pages While the relationship with Oliver and Xanthe is the main focus, there is a side story going on that adds a little suspense turning a love story into something MORE I loved the extra story going on and it opens up lots of opportunity for other stories in this series to feed off of I really did love this story. I loved Xanthe and Oliver but I also loved all of the side characters that made this story cometo life Kelli Jean has such a talent for not only making you care for the main character couples in her book, but she makes you feel equally invested in those around her main H h Sometimes with other books when the side characters are brought in, it feelslike filler Not so with Kelli. All of her characters jump off the pages and make you laugh and smile There is nothing better than when you get to the final page in a book and you have this huge smile on your face. knowing that you just took a journey and met characters that will be with you for a long time And that s what Kelli did here
