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.
