When it comes to women, I know what they want. And all day long, I give it to them. Dark, broody, and sexy? You got it. Need to laugh? I’m your guy. Desperate for something to put you in the mood? You’ve come to the right place, kitten.
Every morning when my library opens, there’s a line around the block, the ladies flocking to me in need of their next book boyfriend. I’m that dude. The one who knows his way around the romance section. And if you think that hasn’t gotten me plenty of action over the years, you’d be wrong.
But I've made a few miscalculations, and now my reputation has my job in danger. If I can’t prove to my boss that I’m more than a playboy who recommends romance in the hopes of getting some hanky panky in the stacks, I can kiss my job goodbye.
Stud in the Stacks is a sexy, hilarious, sometimes embarrassing romantic comedy told in both points of view, complete with tacos, romance novel love, and unicorn parties with no cheating or cliffhangers.
I am going to be straight up and real with y’all right now. I almost set Stud In The Stacks down and walked away. I bet you are asking why well I am about to tell you but before I do that know that I ended up liking this one so I am glad that I didn’t set it down.
I was annoyed by Parker for a good majority of the book, she was wishy washy and I hate when a heroine is like that. I just had a real hard time connecting with her but in the end, I did like her character even if I wish she would have been stronger and less well less Parker. I think you will understand why once you read her character or maybe it is just me.
So why did I keep reading? Knox. Plain and simple. He kept me wanting to read this one. Plus add in some book suggestions throughout the book from Knox himself has added to my never ending TBR list. I liked the idea of the male character being the one who is the romance genre fan and supporter. Is he at times a bit cocky? Yes but that just adds to his appeal especially when he stands up for readers of romance books.
The chemistry between Parker and Knox is hot, I loved it when Knox proved her wrong about certain things. This was at times funny and I enjoyed the added laughs while reading Stud In The Stacks. While this one may not have been a book that I loved I did enjoy it and think others will as well.

Even though it’s been six years since I stripped for a roomful of women, I’m pleased to report my loincloth still fits in all the right places. Tad more snug in front than I remember, but if I had to grow, might as well be in the junk.
I give the elastic one last test as the producer signals that I’m up. Spider-Man gives me a fist bump. Thor smacks my ass. They’re the last two bachelors going up on the block after me in tonight’s superhero-themed auction.
There are some who might say Tarzan isn’t a superhero, but Jane would beg to differ.
And I fucking own this costume.
Plus, if no one else bids on me, my Nana’s right up front, ready to throw down the hundred bucks I slipped her before the show.
I’m hoping for a little higher than that though. Batman just went for a cool five grand.
Batman was a dick, which I assume my Nana didn’t know when she started the bidding on him. A grade-A, condescending asshat who thought just because he had a few million bucks in the bank, he could call people gay like that’s an insult and take a metaphorical shit on my favorite books.
I fucking want to beat Batman.
Pippa Grant is a stay-at-home mom and housewife who loves to escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles. When she’s not reading, writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
