Review of More Than Words - Lilly Avalon

The bit on the back…

All of her friends know her as Dana Darling, the clean romance writer. She's never written a steamy novel, not even in her head, but now her publisher needs her to write one. It doesn't appear too difficult at first, but then Dana's lack of sexual knowledge creates writer's block.

That's where her friend Landon comes in. She needs pointers on positions and dirty talk, and he owes her a favor. They agree that it's strictly business and clothes are mandatory, but once they get to work, it's another story entirely... one that's being written between the sheets and not on paper.

*More Than Words is an erotica novella*

Firstly thank you to Patchwork Press for approving me for a copy of this via NetGalley.

I requested this short novella because I liked the sound of the blurb and I’ve really enjoyed the friend to lover storyline in other books.

Unfortunately I found myself enduring it rather than enjoying it. The novella is thankfully short but to me was completely unbelievable and unrealistic. I found that I couldn’t relate to the main character Dana and couldn’t comprehend her age and author status with all of her experience and how she could be so paradoxically inexperienced. That just didn’t compute for me.

Her friend turned lover was a fellow writer in this case but even that friendship didn’t seem close enough to have potential to make the happy ending occur.

I can’t recommend this as there are so many better, full length novels with the same plot idea that are just so much better.
