Sunday Spotlight #4-Book Nerds and Boyfriends

Happy Sunday, friends! A few weeks ago I started doing a "Sunday Spotlight" where I highlight a book/author that deserves more love!  I take a book that I have read and enjoyed that has less than 100
reviews on Goodreads and give it some extra love by drawing it to your attention! Maybe someday I will host a link party (if I can figure it out) to make it easier to participate. 

Title: Book Nerds and Boyfriends

Author: Sarah Monzon

Publisher: Radiant Publications

Genre: RomCom, Romance, Contemporary, 

(FREE on Kindle Unlimited)

My Review:

(Before I wrote lengthier reviews, 😂) Quick read, loved that the characters were fully developed which is hard to do in a novella. I enjoyed all three stories, which were written with humor and depth. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Romcoms mixed with a healthy dose of humor.


Synopsis (from Goodreads): 

A collection of three bookish novellas

Bookishly Ever After

It all started with a bet and a book.Emory Blake is the ultimate bibliophile. She’d take curling up with a good novel over a night on the town any day of the week. But then best friend Tate Woodby accuses her of living between the pages of her paperbacks instead of the real world, and makes a bet that will force her to experience the adventures of her fictional friends…instead of just reading about them. With her face no longer buried in books, Emory must confront the pain of the past. But is it also her perfect opportunity to discover the hunky hero who could be the happily-ever-after of her own story?

Literarily For Keeps

She only has to pretend to be married for five days. What's the worst that could happen? Literature professor Ashleigh Darmody never imagined her life would turn into a classic trope, but that's exactly what happens when her sister Claire calls with a bizarre request--quickly find a fake husband. Backstory is a powerful thing, and Ashleigh's has plenty of shadows, but is her past so shady that it requires an elaborate scheme to ensure Claire's prospective father-in-law, renowned TV evangelist Ken Abrams, will give her his blessing to marry his son?Already divorced from a man who turned out to be other than he claimed, Ashleigh now has to pretend to be blissfully married to a stranger for the next five days. But when the lines of fiction and reality blur with each tick of the clock, could a temporary deal turn into something for keeps?

Novelly Upon A Time

Harper Jones prides herself on the impeccable research she does for her novels, so when early reviews come pouring in claiming her romance reeks of inauthenticity, her editor suggests pulling her nose out of books and getting some real-life smooching experience. But her plans to do just that are thwarted by her arch nemesis from high school who's recently returned to town. Suddenly she's left with an impossible decision--kiss her worst enemy or kiss her three-book contract goodbye.


  1. An anthology about romance and books! I'm sure I would enjoy this.

    1. Wendy, I really did! She is a great writer, adds great doses of humor!

  2. I love your idea of spotlighting a favorite author or book that deserves a little more attention! And this collection of bookish novellas sounds like a lot of fun. :)

    1. It was, Lark! It stinks that it doesn't have that much exposure on Goodreads...but hopefully some day!
