To save his bookstore from closing, Mark Werner realizes it’s going to take a miracle—like getting reclusive, best-selling author Shepherd Knight to agree to appear for a signing.
After their disastrous last encounter, Mark doesn’t hold up much hope Shepherd will agree. Shepherd’s never made a single public appearance. In fact, Mark wouldn’t even know what he looks like had he not accidentally discovered the sexy stranger he’d been flirting with for months, aka “Tall-Dark-and-Grumpy,” was also his fanboy obsession.
But desperate times call for desperate measures. If Mark can convince Shepherd, it’ll be a major coup in the book world and might just save Bookmarked from sinking. Too bad Shepherd won’t reply to his e-mails. Yet Mark didn’t earn the reputation of having a “sunshine-and-rainbow-fart” personality for nothing. He’ll do whatever it takes to get his man… and hopefully not make a fool of himself in the process.
I am loving this world and Bookmarked was a great addition to the Heartsville universe.
Mark and Shep were great characters and their story was a heartfelt one. I loved the bookstore, the anxiety, the social awkwardness, the friendship, the love, the sex, the NaNoWriMo kickoff party, and everything else included in this novella. I loved watching both men work outside their comfort zones as it allowed for a bit of growth.
I also liked the bit of vandalism as it added some color to what would otherwise have been too perfect of a story. It allowed Mark to show his character and his goodness. This story was a great start to a promising relationship!
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.

Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
