Neurotica Review & Giveaway!

Welcome to my stop on the tour! Keep reading for your chance to enter a gift card!

About the Book:

If you find yourself talking to Jayne Dandy, keep the conversation on Star Wars and rubber ducks—best not to mention men, dating, or S-E-X. Because Jayne is fine with the way things are: writer of obituaries and garage sale ads by day, secret scribe of adventures in distant galaxies by night. But her crippling fear of intimacy has made her the butt of jokes since forever, and hiding behind her laptop isn’t going to get her lightsaber lit.

After her therapist recommends that she write erotica as a form of exposure therapy, Jayne joins forces with pen and paper to combat the demons that won’t let her kiss and tell. Unexpectedly downsized at work, she adopts a pseudonym and secretly self-publishes one of her naughty books to make ends meet. When her adorable, long-time friend Luke, co-owner of the popular Portland food truck Luke Piewalker’s, hears she’s been demoted, he insists on hiring her to sling éclairs and turnovers at his side. Her secret must be kept, but sparks ignite between them, sending Jayne and her X-Wing into a tailspin that will either make her face down her neuroses or trigger a meltdown of Death Star proportions.

I loved this book so much. I found it very funny and the main character is lovable. Jayne had a lot of personal growth and it was easy to identify with her character at times. 
The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there wasn't much background on Luke which is important. I found myself wanting to know more about how their friendship first came about. I did like the slow-building romance between Luke and Jayne though. The ending was nice, but I wanted more!
If you want a fun, entertaining read, try this one out!
4 out of 5 stars

About the Author:
A purveyor of fictions, Eliza Gordon has excellent taste in books, shoes, movies, and friends, and questionable sanity in the realm of love. Best leave that one alone.
