I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
A young book blogger finds her world turned upside down after her digital diary is accidentally published online, and her feelings for her recently engaged roommate become public knowledge in author Joslyn Westbrook’s “Confessions of a Bookaholic”.
What happens when a book blogger accidentally publishes her digital diary online?
A viral sh–storm, that’s what.
No way did I want thousands of subscribers to read my confessions – yet, that’s precisely what went down last night after four too many Cosmos with my girls.
Now, Damage Control is my new middle name because my diary confessional has my roommate, Lucas Stone, written all over it.
I’ve been in love with him forever – well, ever since I saw him sprint across campus naked during our first year of college.
And now that Lucas knows how I feel about him?
Well, things are destined to get awkward.
Because Lucas Stone, my BFF – the man who sleeps only one room over – just got engaged.
And his fiancée isn’t me.
Confessions of a Bookaholic is a steamy, friends-to-lovers, sports romance full of laughter and a tiny bit of angst.
