Book Review: Word Play

Title Word Play

Author Amalie Silver

Release Date July 2014

Smut sells.

Michael Rourke learned this the hard way.

Struggling to make ends meet as a mystery writer, he sold his soul - and his pride - as he pedaled sex and lust writing under the pen name Christoph Strong.

No one knew he was the one behind the steamy stories on the bestsellers lists. And he planned to keep it that way.

Until he met her.

Monica Singer, an infamous blogger, is keen to discover the truth of his secret identity.

During a chance meeting at a book convention, Michael and Monica form an instant connection. And soon, an industry rivalry becomes something else entirely.

But as Michael starts to let his guard down, he doesn’t realize that the person he's learning to trust may be hiding secrets of her own.

Secrets that could ultimately destroy everything.

Funny, romantic, sweet, and sexy! Word Play has it all.

As a (small time) blogger, I found myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions. Amalie has absolutely nailed the reading/blogging community. There were even times when I wondered who she possibly pulled her inspiration from (I could think of a blogger or two that fit). While I enjoyed the romantic side of the book, the satire of the community is what stole the show. It made me both grateful I'm not a larger part of the reading/blogging community (ew, drama) and wonder how I could become more involved (who doesn't want to be more well known?).

The romance, while it did take a backseat for me, was fun. It was sweet, fresh, and different than your typical romances. I loved the banter between Michael and Lauren. To top it all off, the sexy scenes were just that... sexy! I didn't roll my eyes a single time throughout the entire book (and that's a total win!).

Of course, I recommend Word Play. Whether you're a blogger, author, or just a reader... if you have a sense of humor, you'll love it.


4 out of 5 stars
