About the book
Otty has just landed her dream job. She's about to join the writing team of one of the most respected showrunners in TV. And then the night before her first day, she's evicted from her flat.

Joe has been working with Russell for years. He's the best writer on his team, but lately something has been off. He's trying to get his mojo back, but when his flatmate moves out without warning he has other things to worry about.

Otty moving into Joe's house seems like the most obvious solution to both their problems, but neither is prepared for what happens next. Paired together in the writing room, their obvious chemistry sparks from the page and they are the writing duo to beat. But their relationship off the page is an entirely different story, and neither of them can figure out why.

And suddenly the question isn't, will they, or won't they? It's why won't they?

Otty is finally taking a step into the world of her dreams - writing. Away from a secure job and her safe place. On top of that her small world of independence is being torn right from under her, which isn't a great way to start a new job.

Joe is missing his inspiration, which can mean the difference between having a job and being out of one. His saving grace is being a favourite of his boss, but he is well aware that the new writers might have just the right kind of ideas and style to threaten his position.

The two of them seem like an unlikely couple to strike up any kind of relationship, whether it be professional, friendly or something that explains the sparks between them. Fate intervenes and their very own story begins.

I can imagine that some readers may think that the end is a bit of a slow burner or lacks the emotional bonfire of a romcom or romance, but in my opinion it's actually a clever way to end their story. Their love for their common interest and the creativity comes together to create the ending they would write for someone else and absolutely wish for themselves.

Dickinson always gives readers an interesting kind of read. Imagine picking the thing that makes you feel most comfortable and emerging yourself in it. It's never too much, never not enough and never too risque - it just is, and sometimes that is enough. The kind of story that doesn't aspire to be anything other than something you really want to read to the very end.
