My Sort of Kind of Hero by Emily Harper

Blog Tour: My Sort-of Kind-of Hero - Emily Harper + Kate Spade Giveaway!


Emily Harper is back! The popular chick lit author is bringing fans another of her quirky rom-coms in the form of My Sort-of Kind-of Hero. Celebrating the publication with a blog tour, Emily will be hitting some top book blogs for reviews, a couple of guest posts and a fabulous giveaway, including a Kate Spade organiser! 
What they say: 

'Etty Lawrence is a bestselling romance author. At least− she would be if she could just get someone to read her books. Apparently, Amazon doesn’t consider the 500 books purchased by your mother to be ‘bestseller’ material.

When Etty’s given some simple advice from a friend − write what you know − she takes it to heart. But she’s never been in love before, and she doesn’t really have time to fall in love and write a novel at the same time. So, she convinces her slightly unwilling lifelong friend, Travis, to let her follow him around and witness real love, first hand. A third person memoir, if you will. Travis is the perfect hero for her story: he’s funny, smart, and good looking; only there’s one problem. He says all the wrong things. Does any girl really want to talk about the NHL trades? And his jokes would make a kindergarten class roll their eyes.

But the worst part is, Travis’s dates laugh at his corny jokes; the jokes he told Etty first. They touch his sweater; the sweater Etty bought him. And the way these women swoon and gush over him…they obviously aren’t leading lady material.

Now Etty has to take this love thing into her own hands if she has any hope of writing a bestseller that people other than her mother will buy.'

What I Say: 

I would like to thank Charlotte at BestChickLit, CandleLit Tours and the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When we first meet Etty she is at a coffee shop working on her latest historical romance offering, but she is suffering from writers block and things go from bad to worse at a book signing when no one wants to buy her books.

Her friend advises that she should write about something that she knows about, Etty hits on the idea to write about someone falling in love like on a reality TV show.  Etty convinces Travis to help her out but using a favour he owes her from long ago.

Unfortunately, Etty isn’t too keen on any of Travis’s dates and really does show him up on one of them, as she is jealous.  In a lot of ways Etty is immature and all though her heart is in the right place goes over the top in the things she does.

Travis for his part is gorgeous and I could see from page one that he adored Etty, even if she couldn’t see it herself.

All in all this is fun lighthearted take on romance and worth reading, I would recommend to anyone who likes chicklit.
