‘How Hard Can it Be?’ by Robyn Peterman

hhcib-rpSTORY: What happens when an accountant decides to grab life by the horns and try something new? Apparently a pirate named Dave, a lot of pastel fleece, and blackmail—just to start with…

Visualize and succeed, Oprah said. I was sure as hell trying, even if my campaign to score a job as the local weather girl had ended in a restraining order. Okay, TV was not my strength. But a lack of talent has never stopped me before. Which is why I’ve embarked on a writing career. I mean, how hard can it be to come up with a sexy romance?

Leave it to me to wind up in a group of grandmotherly porno writers who discuss sex toys and apple cobbler in the same breath. Also leave it to me to leak an outlandish plot idea to a bestselling author with the morals of a rabid squirrel. And only I could get arrested for a jewelry heist I didn’t commit—by a hunky cop whose handcuffs just might tempt me to sign up for a life of crime. Maybe I’ve found my calling after all…

REVIEW: It took me forever to move this book to the top of my TBR. I am so glad I got around to reading it because it really made me laugh out loud and these days, I really need some laughs.

For a debut, this is extremely well written and plotted, but what you’ll love and appreciate the most is the humor, which is evident from page one. I also liked that the story was written in first person and it was a hoot seeing the story through Rena’s eyes.

Despite categorizing this as romantic comedy and a romp, I found the story believable and its characters complex. I highly recommend it and do advise you not to sip anything while you read. Heed me on that!
