Book Description:
Pitched as Legally Blonde in the literary world, Love Literary Style is a sparkling romantic comedy in the tradition of the The Rosie Project.

They say opposites attract, and what could be more opposite than a stuffy literary writer falling in love with a self-published romance writer?

Novelist Aaron Mite meets Laurie Lee at a writers' colony and mistakenly believes her to a renowned author of important fiction. When he discovers she's a self-published romance author, he's already fallen in love.

Aaron thinks genre fiction is an affront to the fiction-writing craft. He likes to quotes the essayist, Arthur Krystal who claims literary fiction “melts the frozen sea inside of us.” 

Ironically, Aaron doesn’t seem to realize that, despite his lofty literary aspirations, he’s emotionally frozen, due, in part, to a childhood tragedy. The vivacious Laurie, lover of flamingo-patterned attire and all things hot pink, is the one person who might be capable of melting him.
