Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: January 5, 2018
Blurb
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.
Review

Jesus, Mary, and One Direction!  You need this in your life!!!  This book! This author! Everything about this!  Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way….this is a standalone but some of the characters from Mister McHottie do make an appearance.  You do not need to have read any previous books.  While I love the author’s first book, I love this one even more! 

This book is funny, crazy, witty and clever.  You will find yourself laughing out loud at some of the antics and situations.  This book also has so many contradictions that it adds to the charm of the book.  Parker is a 38 year old, independent, successful woman who can command the workplace, but in her personal life, she is quirky, awkward, nerdy and so unsure of herself.  Knox is a sexy, confident, alpha male who is a librarian and writes a blog about romance books.  Add to that…Parker used to babysit Knox when he was younger and she tried to buy a date with him when he was wearing a loincloth.  They both find themselves in need of a fake relationship for the sake of their jobs.  All this adds up to explosive chemistry, sweet moments, hot sexy times and hilarious predicaments.

Not only is Parker and Knox amazing and funny, the author gives us a whole cast of characters that are so amusing that you want more of them as well.  So many “norms” of this genre are blown out of the water in this book, and it is so refreshing.  Not only is the book incredible, but there are references to so many other romance books that my TBR list increased dramatically because of this book. 

This is only Pippa Grant’s second book, but she has already made it to my favorite, always-one-click, tell-everyone-I-know authors list.  If you love rom-coms, you NEED this author in your life.  Once you read this book and fall in love with this author, you MUST sign up for her newsletter.  I know that is not normally something that is recommended in a review.  But she will send to you a Bonus Epilogue that is well worth it!  Not only is the Bonus Epilogue the extra dollop of guacamole on top of an already extra meaty, extra cheesy, deluxe taco, but her newsletters are the most entertaining ones I’ve ever read.  Just trust me…go right now and get this book!!!  You will thank me later!

Excerpt
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.     
Author Bio
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.
