She overcomes her grief by taking matters in her own hands and takes up a little romance writing to resurrect her vampire-werewolf book-boyfriend. Leigh gets more than she bargained for when she discovers that every steamy erotic scene she creates is magically reenacted by her family, friends and coworkers.

I read this book, and I kid you not, in less than 3 hours! Nearly that entire time I was laughing so hard I had tears STREAMING down my face!
All I can say is; poor Hunter, you didn’t know WHAT you were getting into but was a great sport about it all! Leigh had no CLUE what she was doing but towards the end finally figured it out! And Luna?! Oh goodness she reminds me SOOO much of my own cat although instead of being standoffish to the owner she’s usually that way towards strangers, at least at first. I loved all of the friends, and even the poor parents; never mind what they all went through!
The only downside to the book is that it ended too soon!! I’m suffering from the ‘blahs’ because I keep going and expecting there to be more to it and there isn’t! However there’s two bonus snippets at the end, and that’s all I’m going to say, that kind of make up for it! I’m definitely going to wait excitedly for the next book, and snatch it up as soon as possible! I’m sooo glad I was introduced to Melanie James and am adding her to my list of “must haves” for the future!
I really enjoyed this and didn’t think I would. Sorry now I left it so long in my library without so much as a glance. It is expensive for the length but I enjoyed it so much I will be purchasing book 2. Had to pay attention as the story skips from real life to fiction in a heartbeat and I did get lost a couple of times but that’s the beauty of the rewind.
It was hilarious, actually made me laugh out “very” loud when everyone was asleep and I just couldn’t stop. So glad I gave this book a chance. The characters were well developed and very likeable, all of them. JUST TOO SHORT! Mini cliffhanger at the end, just enough to peek my interest and make sure I need to get 2nd instalment.
The narrator, Hollie Jackson was soooo goood I had to check whether she was the author. It felt like she new the characters so well and the story just flowed from her lips. Melanie James can be very satisfied because Hollie did an amazing job. Sadly many times a narrator can completely kill a book and other times no matter how good the narrator, the book just hasn’t “got it”. In this case, both the book and the narration complement eachother to perfection.
