Publisher's Summary

Olivia Dade bursts onto the scene in this delightfully fun romantic comedy set in the world of fanfiction, in which a devoted fan goes on an unexpected date with her celebrity crush, who’s secretly posting fanfiction of his own.  

Marcus Caster-Rupp has a secret. The world may know him as Aeneas, star of the biggest show on television, but fan-fiction readers call him something else: Book!AeneasWouldNever. Marcus gets out his frustrations with the show through anonymous stories about the internet’s favorite couple, Aeneas and Lavinia. But if anyone discovered his online persona, he’d be finished in Hollywood.

April Whittier has secrets of her own. A hardcore Lavinia fan, she’s long hidden her fanfic and cosplay hobbies from her “real life” - but not anymore. When she dares to post her latest costume creation on Twitter, her plus-size take goes viral. And when Marcus asks her out to spite her internet critics, truth officially becomes stranger than fan-fiction.

On their date, Marcus quickly realizes he wants more from April than a one-time publicity stunt. But when he discovers she’s Unapologetic Lavinia Stan, his closest fandom friend, he has one more huge secret to keep from her.

With love and Marcus’ career on the line, can the two of them stop hiding once and for all, or will a match made in fandom end up prematurely cancelled?

Not what I expected

I went into this book thinking it was going to be a cliche story line with the handsome guy rescuing and falling in love with the plus size girl. However, as much as this was part of the story it wasn't the main point. The main characters had depth and they felt real. The hero wasn't some macho male but rather human and beautiful. The heroine was kickass and also vulnerable and beautiful. This was a great read. The narrator did a great job too.

fluffy girl approved

loved it. when the female protagonist is a large girl who learns to love herself as she is and to not accept being loved conditionally. it was so sweet. a fan dream in the making. writing fanfiction and meeting the actors of your OTP. the story mixes and exposes Fandom and the toxicity that can exist in there as well as the well meaning toxic families we may possess.

Not perfect, but so lovable

Yes there are tropes, yes there are little things that happen that really wouldn't happen in real life but this was SUPER cute and enjoyable. And as a plus sized woman myself, it made me feel very sexy.

Not my cup of tea

Could not finish it. Did not like how the story was going. I was not fond of the smut, I thought it woukd have been more of a romance than erotic. It is not that I usually mind it but when it turns out to be on every other page I get tired of it. It annoys me to keep having to skip over parts to avoid it and since it seems to happen every 10 mins I feel like I wasted my money.

So GOOD!

I completely loved this book. The couple was sweet, smart and so adorable together. This book is steamy so don’t make my mistake and listen with kids around! LOL. Also: the guy that wrote the one star review was completely wrong. The kind of childhood trauma each MC went through is HARD to get past, it leaves scars. The author handled this with sensitivity and intelligence. At no time did I feel that the characters were sliding into woe is me. So I’m not sure what book that guy listened to, but it wasn’t this one.

Author insert and disability self stroking

If you like people feeling good about themselves by writing about "poor" people with disabilities making it through the world, then this is you book. Constant passive lecturing about how people should behave. I want my credit and time back.
