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 porno writing grannies 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. . .
MY REVIEW:When I was asked if I was interested in doing a review for an AMAZINGLY fun author on this book I was ecstatic and couldn't imagine declining. The moment I opened this book, I was swept away with the potty-mouthed Rena, with her porno granny friends and her outrageous adventures as she attempts to write a horrible, disgusting romance for a evil best selling author with a horrible fetish for fake boobies and crappy taste in fashion and art. A whole lot of fun was had in this fun, laugh out loud romantic comedy.
How Hard Can It Be had a TON of hysterical moments with both fun and loyal people and one smoking HOT cop! Jack was into Rena from the moment he sees her at the one place she was NOT supposed to be and he was forced to arrest her, but boy-howdy he made Rena melt like a ice cream on a hot day! When these two get together, sparks fly and clothes are forgotten as they seem to be unable to keep their hands off each other.
The whole time I found myself laughing OUT LOUD..for real! I never heard so many different names for a males' anatomy before and I definitely learned some new ones. I was totally smitten with Jack and truly enjoyed Rena and her fun attics as she sets about trying to take down the evil author and save herself and her friends from such a vile creature. Her friends, the loyal porno-grannies, were a hoot to read about. They were just as loyal to Rena and were by far, the most fun grannies you can imagine.
I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed this book and I keep asking myself one question..what took me so long to pick this up? It was freaking FANTASTIC! For those that have read books by Darynda Jones, you MUST pick this up! You will laugh, sigh, shake your head in wonder, and demand a repeat from these hilarious characters. The chemistry between Jack and Rena is off the charts and will definitely have you needing a fan and laugh till you need an adult diaper. It is pure fun, no butts (just couldn't resist) about it. A FOUR AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE is my rating for this incredible book, a total worthy read.
