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 ├ęclairs 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.

Laura's Review: 

Humorous and lighthearted, Neurotica is a wonderful weekend read for anyone who appreciates the geeky side of life. Ms. Gordon does a great job creating interesting characters whose flaws just make them that much more relatable. While Jayne and Luke certainly clicked, spewing forth a lot of witty banter, their chemistry felt more like that of friends or even siblings. Anyone expecting a book about an erotic writer to be super hot and sexy is going to be disappointed. This definitely was more chick-lit than it was romance, but still a fun escape.

Neurotica: 3/5 stars

  1. That's too bad that the romance didn't work for you so well. I really liked it, that it was kind of drawn out a bit to allow time for us to see the chemistry. Well, for me to see the chemistry (and feel the chemistry). Though I can see how people might expect a bit more on the 'sex' angle of things. Many have said they want another chapter and I understand that bit. ;) Anyway, thanks for hosting a tour stop!
