Kurzbeschreibung

Smut sells.

Michael Rourke learned this the hard way.

Struggling to make ends meet as a mystery writer, he sold his soul - and his pride - as he pedaled sex and lust writing under the pen name Christoph Strong.

No one knew he was the one behind the steamy stories on the bestsellers lists. And he planned to keep it that way.

Until he met her.

Monica Singer, an infamous blogger, is keen to discover the truth of his secret identity.

During a chance meeting at a book convention, Michael and Monica form an instant connection. And soon, an industry rivalry becomes something else entirely.

But as Michael starts to let his guard down, he doesn’t realize that the person he's learning to trust may be hiding secrets of her own.

Secrets that could ultimately destroy everything.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book had me in stitches! 7. Juni 2017
Von Shelley Haase - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Word Play by Amalie Silver had me in stitches as I read this incredible story. I actually was traveling home on a plane and I had to keep reminding myself where I was, because my bursts of laughter kept erupting from me. This is a satire on the world of Romance writing. The person next to me on the plane actually asked me what I was reading to get the reaction I had.

In this book Author Michael Rourke has hit a wall with his career in writing mysteries. The truth of the matter is, Smut sells. It's as simple as that. The only problem is that once you become an overnight success in the business, you have to produce more. When he is forced to make a public appearance as his Pen Name Christoph Strong, his world as he know it crumbles. No longer is his quiet life a viable option.

Monica Singer is an infamous blogger. She is determined to get to the bottom of who is Christoph Strong. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts. But once lines are crossed, all bets are off!

I am completely new to Amalie Silver, but this will not be the last I read from her. I loved how she created these memorable characters that stuck with me long after the book was finished. The world she built was one I would want to live in! Her sense of humor and ability to capture my heart was incredible. I can't wait to read more from this incredibly talented author!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This books was one of the best summer reads of 2014! 11. August 2014
Von Danielle S&S - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Once in a while I buy a book (not getting it through my blog to read) and I am super happy I did. I heard about Word Play, through a friend and decided to read it one slow weekend. This has to be one of the bests reads I have had all summer long.

Michael Rourke is a writer. After writing other books, and not becoming a successful by writing mystery, he turns to what is hot right now. Writing erotica. But Michael doesn't write under his own name, but rather a pen name, Christoph Strong. This way no one knows it is him. Michael is not thrilled with his new writing endeavors, but it is paying the bills. Actually, he is making a killing! So now his publisher wants his to do book signing. The only problem with that, is that people might found out who he really is. But his books are so in demand, they need him out there.

At a book convention "Christoph" meets 'Monica Singer'. She is an infamous blogger that had previously trashed his work. While he is peeved at her review, he finds himself attracted to the women behind it. The only problem is that she is not Monica, she is Lauren. No spoilers here, but Lauren is more than he thinks she is.

The attraction and fling between Michael/Christop and Monica/Lauren is hot and at the same time comical. These two have a connection, but it seems it is not destined for anything big because these two are using huge secrets!
This book was a behind the scenes look at the book world. Writes, publishes, bloggers etc. I found it hysterically funny and sweet at the same time. Amalie Silver put her heart and soul into this book. She came out with Faceplace, Greatreads, Twatter, Amazonia, and my favorite, Instaguru. You know exactly what she was talking about with a spin on the names.

If you are looking for a book that is different from the rest of the other books out there right now, this is it. It is funny and sweet. It is romantic and crazy insane. It is the best book I have read this summer. No lie, and I am a blogger!!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Sassy Romance 1. Mai 2016
Von Garden Gal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was the perfect story for Saturday afternoon reading. A sassy contemporary romance and funny names for social media without infringement. Think Twatter for tweeting and FacePlace for interaction with authors. Bloggers remain the same, but Monica's Musings were a bit brutal towards Mr. Strong. Lauren and Michael get their HEA, but not before a boatload of drama occurs.

This is the first book I've read from this author. She's funny, characters are well developed, relatable, the story is entertaining and overall it's well written. Yes, I recommend "Word Play" to readers who enjoy romance novels and contemporary stories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 5 VERY enthusiastic "Couldn't put it down if I tried" stars! 7. September 2015
Von Amanda Clark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Wow. OK, so this book was a bit of a surprise for me. The day I started reading it I had been looking for something to get lost in and started trying to read a few other books I've had on my kindle for a while but nothing was catching my interest. Then I picked "Word Play" up and quickly fell into the chapters one by one building steam like a locomotive until I finished it. 8 straight hours later!

"Word Play" was so many things. Smart, sexy, fun and funny, intriguing, exciting and sexy! I love that it was centered around the literary romance world full of bloggers, authors and fandoms alike. I used to be such a blogger for a while so it was delightful to see certain names I recognized even though I had yet to read this particular author.

The story of struggling mystery writer Michael Rourke was captivating at first, not just because he sold his soul (so to speak) to write erotica in order to make ends meet but it was the fact that I was reading all this from a male's perspective that made it a refreshing change. It was so funny and humbling to see his struggle of achieving his dreams of being an author just not in the way he intended. Watching him cope with wanting a quiet life and being unceremoniously thrust into the spotlight against his wishes was comical at times and sort of sad others. What I loved most was seeing him try on the persona of his alter ego pen name and realize he liked himself better and lived that. I was glad to see he didn't go the route of smarmy douche-bag for too long but was a charming, bumbling, regular guy. For me, that's a huge plus in his Hero column.

There was several stories going on inside this one book simultaneously. Michael's rise to instant fame, his meeting of infamous harsh blogger "Monica" of Monica's Musings and also his rivalry with notoriously famous author and his competition Betty Black. I loved the addition of Lauren and getting her chapters blended into the mix was a stroke of pure genius. Here I was thinking this would be all on Michael but I got to see things from Lauren's side as well. She was another great character and a really strong heroine to Michael's hero. She was a ballsy, brash, shy and quiet yet spunky and determined hellcat in heels I couldn't help but fall in love with. Plus the secondary story of the secret she's keeping from him and a previous connection made this one juicy a** marvelously thought out masterpiece. I just loved Lauren and Michael together. They were such awkwardly adorable characters and I think that's what made them so wonderfully believable.

The hit or miss romance between these two was intense and nerve wracking for me. I had a ball of nerves the size of San Antonio sitting in my stomach the entire time waiting for the other shoe to drop making it impossible for me to stop reading at any given point without being thoroughly pissed off that I was being interrupted! This delicious, post 'good book' high I'm on, is the reason I love to read books. And the message inside this story, about the romance genre being one of the most ridiculed among other genre authors but yet being one of the most tight knit communities of amazing people, made me glad I picked up this book for all the reasons listed above. I've made some amazing friends being a part of this romance world and I couldn't imagine my life without them or books like this to brighten my day and make me forget reality for a brief period of time. My only regret is that I can only purchase this book once because it was so good I just want to keep deleting it and buying it again! I've already alerted all my friends and now I'll tell you, this book was excellent. If you want something that won't drag you down, that WILL make you laugh and swoon and cringe and go "awww" then "Word Play" is the right choice for your next read. Hell, do it because you love a good ending. Do it because you love a believable romance between two great characters, who make it easy to root for them with pom-poms and police whistles. It was just THAT good. Period.

Thank you Ms. Silver, for such a great reading experience!
4.0 von 5 Sternen A Fun One 20. Februar 2017
Von Michelle @ In Libris Veritas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Wordplay has been on my TBR for a while now, something about the whole idea of a romantic parody just kind of calls to me in general because I don’t really read a ton of romance. So I’m glad to say that it really managed to live up to my expectations. It’s both funny and charming and proved to be a rather fun book.

Michael Rourke is a struggling mystery writer and Christoph Strong is a highly sought after erotica author, and they are the same person. I love this dual side to Michael, and it’s kind of hilarious watching him try to figure out just how to be someone like the man he writes about. He’s suave and self-sure, but he’s also sweating bullets and in over his head. We get a similar situation with Monica Singer, who hides behind a pen name and struggles to share who she really is with Christoph. We get a whole handful of tropes in this one and they all lead to a rather ridiculous situation that is equal parts hilarious and kind of cute. We have mistaken identity, alpha male, the love to hate troupe, and even a bit of the reunion romance going on. I think if you go into the novel knowing that this is a parody and that ‘yes it is ridiculous’ you’ll enjoy it quite a bit. There are a lot of laugh out loud moments in Wordplay as Michael struggles with his new fame, and as he trades jabs with Monica. Their romance is pretty steamy, but it’s also a slow burn and takes awhile before all those pesky misunderstandings work themselves out. One of the side characters that I can’t get enough of is Jeffrey…He’s sort of a parody himself as he embodies the ‘gay best friend’ role but even with that in mind I still want a friend like him. He’s supportive and as subtle as an air horn, which is just perfect.

One my favorite things about this one was the sort of tongue in cheek jabs at the reading community as a whole. Everyone who reads or writes blogs knows that it can get kind of crazy and that there are so many ridiculous people that pop up on occasion, and Wordplay totally touches on that. It’s not mean spirited and there are moments where we get to see some focus on the side of the community that really does love their hobby and works their butt off for it no matter what.
