Britt: ARC review. (Not so) Good in a Room. A Novella by Dakota Madison

(Not so) Good in a Room review

I received this book free, in exchange for an honest review. I found this author/book randomly on Facebook. Considering I've never heard of her work before I was pleasantly surprised. I normally will not read a novella unless it's part of a Paranormal series. And usually will not venture outside the Paranormal/fantasy genre. However I did enjoy this romantic comedy type novella. 

Nell is an average socially awkward girl, nothing especially exceptional about her, except her writing. At "pitchapalooze" she meets an annoying and attractive man, that 'kinda' writes also. And in turn his cousin, an actor. She suffers from a social anxiety that keeps her from speaking in large groups, moments of nervousness and important meetings. Which makes it hard to pitch her screen plays, right? Well the boys think they have the solution.

The love triangle in book isn't overly strained, the drama is non existent, and the trials they face are extremely believable, and realistic. And leave room to follow up the story on the man who didn't win Nell's heart. He could have mine, I'm definitely interested in reading his story. The next book in the series.

I don't have much experience in reviewing romance without fantasy, but this novella was really well written, and had a very enjoyable touch of humour. Even as a novella it felt short to me. She spends the whole story confused about her feelings, so the ending seems a little rushed to me. I wouldn't have minded 1, or 2, or 30 more pages ;).. I'd especially like to see that producers down fall, she was a bitch.

 I'd feel very comfortable giving it a 4/5 stars.
If you like vanilla romance, you would certainly enjoy this little number. The copy I received was without a cover, so I'm gonna keep my eye out for that in the future.

Brittaini Ova and Out!!
