Book Review: SMUT by Karina Halle

**SYNOPSIS**

What happens when the kink between the pages leads to heat between the sheets?

All Blake Crawford wants is to pass his creative writing course, get his university degree, and take over his dad’s ailing family business. What Amanda Newland wants is to graduate at the top of her class, as well as finally finish her novel and prove to her family that writing is a respectful career.

What Blake and Amanda don’t want is to be paired up with each other for their final project, but that’s exactly what they both get when they’re forced to collaborate on a writing piece. Since Amanda thinks Blake is a pushy asshole (with a panty-melting smirk and British accent) and Blake thinks Amanda has a stick up her ass (though it’s a brilliant ass), they fight tooth and nail until they discover they write well together. They also may find each other really attractive, but that’s neither here nor there.

When their writing project turns out to be a success, the two of them decide to start up a secret partnership using a pen name, infiltrating the self-publishing market in the lucrative genre of erotica. Naturally, with so much heat and passion between the pages, it’s not long before their dirty words become a dirty reality. Sure, they still fight a lot, but at least there’s make-up sex now.

But even as they start to fall hard for each other, will their burgeoning relationship survive if their scandalous secret is exposed? Or are happily-ever-afters just a work of fiction?

**MY REVIEW**

5 Stars!!

My absolute favorite romance trope is the enemies-to-lovers trope. There’s something great about watching two people who simply despise each other, slowly grow closer… and eventually fall in love. I. LOVE. IT. 

Karina Halle did a spectacular job at writing this laugh-out-loud funny, smutty, and light-hearted enemies-to-lovers romance. This book contained some of the smuttiest scenes I’ve ever read and I loved every second of it! 

SMUT was extremely well-written with characters you will instantly fall for. First there’s Blake *sigh*…. Blake, Blake, Blake. Ahhh, I loved him. The cocky manwhore with an accent to die for. Basically he’s perfect and I want my own. Then there’s Amanda. I loved her immediately. Her nerdiness and witty inner dialogue made me want her as my best friend. Blake and Amanda seemed like complete opposites, yet they fit so perfectly together with their insanely hot chemistry. Their banter was snarky, playful, and flirtatious, and often had me laughing and blushing, and the sexual tension? COMBUSTABLE. Blake, you filthy, filthy boy 😉

I loooved how SMUT poked fun at the erotic romance genre. I mean romance is definitely all I really read, and I have been known to read some erotica a time or two… or more, so I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard at the book titles and pen-names they came up with. That stuff was (as Blake would say) BLOODY BRILLIANT.

SMUT is quirky, refreshing, and entertaining as hell. Definitely pick this book up if you’re looking for a sexy, light, and fun rom-com. SMUT is pure romantic comedy GOLD.
