Description

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF PEOPLE WE MEET ON VACATION!

“Original, sparkling bright, and layered with feeling.”—Sally Thorne, author of The Hating Game

A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.


Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They’re polar opposites.

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

    this was cute. I loved gus and his charisma. I went into it not expecting much but I really needed a pick me up. If you need something that’s going to lift your spirits a bit this would be the book to try out

    The books you avoid starting turn out to be the very best. Beach Read was not at all what I was expecting and yet was everything I wanted in a book. MC’s with messy lives whose hearts are a match. Sharp and funny observations and a grief that appears just so big and insurmountable. Even in the moments where I wasn’t sure if I was truly enjoying this book, I couldn’t walk away from it. These characters with their messy lives kept me anchored to the spot.

    I’m not going to lie I started this book off and it was hard to get into the book for some reason. It has a great hook I’ll tell you that, but I’m not sure why I struggled to get lost into it. It didn’t take long after I was hooked. This book follows January’s and Augustus story. Both of them are writes and are completely opposite in their writing. January is a bubbly person. Happy endings are what keeps her going. Her life was perfect until of course she loose a loved one and that opens many wounds that she never knew where there.
