Today we are celebrating the release of #1 MUSE by T. Gephart! This is a contemporary romance, standalone title that you won't want to miss!
This novel is part of T. Gephart's #1 Series.
Landing a writing gig in Hollywood was just as difficult as becoming an actor, and something Claire Becker had learned the hard way.
Sure, she didn’t have to conform to ridiculous beauty standards and give up her love for raw cookie dough, but the sting of rejection burned all the same. The only things that kept her sane were her two amazing roommates and her guilty pleasure—writing fan-fiction.
Getting lost in her own world, she’d forget that she had yet to land her dream job, and instead spent time with her dream man—Nick Larsson. Well, at least in the literary sense. Too bad he wasn’t aware or an active participant—her fictional love life, outstanding.
Tall, good-looking and sexy beyond comprehension, Nick Larsson not only had a famous last name—and four equally smoldering brothers—but was talented beyond belief. A star on the rise with a critically acclaimed series, his body and face were what fantasy scripts—and dreams—were made of. Made for some pretty steamy writing opportunities too.
And yes, it was probably “wrong” for Claire to objectify him, but it wasn’t like anyone knew about it. Just her, and her two amazing, supportive roommates.
Or at least they were amazing and supportive, and bound to be missed after Claire killed them.
In a moment of unexplained insanity, one of them —or both, each as bad as the other—sent her latest installments to the man himself.
Cue panic of epic proportions.
All Claire needed to do was sneak into his apartment and retrieve the misappropriated story before Nick, or anyone else, read it and mistook her for a creepy stalker. Although, breaking and entering probably wouldn’t convince anyone to the contrary either.
Claire was going to get the best material of her life, or end up with a restraining order. Either way, the story was getting a hell of lot more interesting.
Claire took me by surprise a bit. I wanted to like her more than I initially did, but she did grow on me. She's funny for sure, but so lacking in confidence that I truly wanted to shake her.
I really did like Nick though, and he definitely was a good book boyfriend. He's sexy, smart, and so much more humble than you'd think someone in his position would be. But it worked. He just had me smitten.
This was a fast paced romcom. The instant connection was there and it worked for these two. I believed in the two of them. Their sexy times were sexy for sure, but that's nothing new from this Author for me.
There were some things that kept this book from being rated higher for me-a couple inconsistencies here and there and honestly, I didn't love Claire. I liked her, but I didn't love her. I wanted her to be stronger for herself.
This is the 5th book in a series but it can be enjoyed as a standalone. The supporting characters were fun and not overwhelming. The pace worked well for the story. I enjoyed this book overall and would recommend it.

When she isn't filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she's living her own reality show in the 'burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.
She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.
