REVIEW: Professor Feelgood by Leisa Rayven
I've really enjoyed Leisa Rayven's books in the past because they take me to settings that always appealed to me--theater and journalism--and Professor Feelgood continues that by putting me inside a publishing house. Throw in the ultimate city, NYC, and a poet and romance and of course I couldn't pass up a chance to check this new novel out. I enjoyed the humor, the love story, and the snarky tension between Asha and Professor Feelgood--they had quite a rocky path to navigate--miscommunications, lack of communication, and lots of hurt feelings with the added pressure of producing a manuscript under deadline. Obviously there was a lot going on here but it worked. I was interested in how they'd work through it all and what their happily ever after would look like. It was also cool to see Edie and Max in the background and I can't help but wonder about some of the other secondary characters and which one will get the Leisa Rayven treatment next.
BUY IT on AMAZON.
What's a girl to do when a man who's countless shades of wrong feels oh-so-right?
Ambitious book editor Asha Tate is a hopeless romantic. Despite her mediocre track record with men, she believes in swooning, sighing, and the everlasting love of true soul mates. Sure, sex is okay, but she’s not someone who’s ever been driven by her animal urges.
When Asha stumbles upon the scorching hot Instagram feed of someone calling himself Professor Feelgood, she falls in lust for the first time. Not only is she left panting over photos of the professor’s insane body, but his angst-filled poetry about losing his one true love speaks straight to her soul.
Desperately in need of a bestseller for her struggling publishing company, Asha knows the professor’s potential to sell to his millions of loyal followers could be the lifeline her bosses need. However, the ink is barely dry on a book deal before she realizes she’s made a terrible mistake. Sure, the professor is incredibly talented and sexier than any man has a right to be, but the man behind the persona isn’t at all who she pictured. In real life, he’s intense, arrogant and infuriating, and his uncanny ability to rub her the wrong way turns her dream project into a total nightmare.
Knowing that the professor is everything she doesn’t want in a man should help Asha ignore her occasional urges to mount him, but she quickly learns that explosive, unwanted chemistry can make even smart people do stupid things.
