Karina Halle truly is an author who can do it all. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Horror, now add Romantic Comedy to that list. She does it all and she does it very well! She did a fantastic job with this one. Funny, sexy and nerdy. The perfect mix! Get ready to laugh, swoon and fall in love with Blake and Amanda!

So… whats better than a friends to lovers romance? How about an enemies to lovers romance? YES! What is it about a book where the hero and heroine don’t get along…

I love Karina Halle. And I loved the other four books I’ve read from her, but this one, gah…was by far the best book I’ve read from her. 'Smut' was an exceptional read. It had everything that I love in a romantic comedy. It was fun, it was fresh and last but not least it had some pretty hot moments between the two main characters. What I mentioned in the past in other reviews is very true - I love nothing more than a versatile author and Mrs. Halle proved with this delightful read tha

Absolutely LOVED this book. It made me laugh out loud quite a few times. The writing is excellent with prose that flows naturally and charmed the heck out of me. Being inside Amanda's head was interesting. She sees and feels the world in a unique way. Blake developed beautifully. A reformed man-whore with depth nobody before Amanda (and us) got to see. These two together were SO RIDICULOUSLY HOT. I want my very own library scene (every bibliophile's fantasy lol). /fans self. My favorite secondar ...more

Smut is a romantic-comedy story about two writing students, Amanda and Blake, who share the same subjects and were assigned to write a fiction together. At first, these two did not go along well but surprisingly they realized that they click in team-writing.

"She's a nerd on the streets and a freak in the sheets."



Blake and Amanda are the least likely to be paired for a writing assignment in class. So when the professor does in fact put them together to write a final project, the two are not thrilled with the prospect. Blake is a hot playboy getting his business degree, and Amanda wants to be a serious writer when she graduates from college. The two have no choice but to work together to write a great novella in order to pass the class.

First things first, this book had me hooked and laughing from the moment Amanda's soon to be ex boyfriend started singing Barry Manilow to her in a crowded room. Do you know how difficult it is to sneak read at work when you can't stop laughing? Damn you and your righteous sense of humor, Karina Halle!

Random comment #1: Aw. Disney you're so funneeeeee.

Smut while doing its name justice is a hilarious parody of how society views erotica or more specifically what literary snobs think of cheesey one time shits and giggles kinda books. All the quotes in this review are directly taken from the book. And may help you decide whether you want to read it or not.

Also, This is a not so classic example of "How to cheat on reviews" when you have exams. *banshee wailing*

WARNING SPOILERS: If you haven't read this book don't read this review! If there are a lot of grammatical/spelling errors in this review it's because I'm writing it blind. I rolled my eyes so hard throughout this novel that they dislodged from my head and I have yet to find them. Also, this book drove me to drink. A lot. So.. there is that as well.. I buddy read this with Francesca and it drove her to drink as well. SO IT'S NOT JUST ME!

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Karina Halle has delivered a smutty and highly intoxicating entertaining read that was layered with lots of banter, humor, steam, and what else SMUT. If there is one thing you can always count on is that Ms. Halle will leave readers satisfied and let me just say that she did that and so much more in this smart, fresh, and fun romantic comedy.

What's this book all about you ask? Well, it's about two university classmates who, despite hating each other, decide to co-author smutty romance books, an enemies-to-lovers, romantic comedy, with plenty of the good stuff. This was so much fun to read!

I don't say this too often about NA books set in college, but this was a hot one! I really liked that these two characters were both young and yet very open to exploring their sexuality. I feel like that doesn't happen often enough, since we only see that when one of the characters is a bit older than the other.



Blake and Amanda are in a writing class together but pretty much ignore one another. Blake thinking Amanda is a stuck up prude, and Amanda thinking that Blake is a playboy manwhore. When

Amanda Newland had a lot to prove to people around her. As an aspiring author, she wanted to be the best in her class, paving the way for her writing future. But that future could be in jeopardy when she was assigned with an enemy as her writing partner.

“I knew it. She’s a nerd on the streets and a freak in the sheets.”

Smut is the first book I have read from Karina Halle, and I really enjoyed it. One of my favourite themes in romance genres is the “enemies-to-lovers.” I love being part of the journey and seeing their relationship develop from absolutely loathing each other, to slowly growing closer, to eventually loving each other. The anticipation and angst really draws me in.

I loved Amanda instantly. I loved her inner-nerd, h

If you like the enemies to lovers story line, then this one is for you. Only Blake and Amanda aren't really enemies...they just can't stand each other...or who they perceived each other to be.

Put together in a writing class to come up with a novella, they both really get into the project and before they know it, they become friends. They look forward to seeing each other almost as much as writing.

They turn in their novella and the professor tells Blake what a great job they did and she g

Now THAT was a fun enemy to lovers story.

Smut is a fun story about two college students who are paired together for a writing assignment. The unlikely pairing of a nerdy student and a carefree student make for some laugh out loud moments.

A business adventure of writing smut together blossoms after they completed their college writing assignment. They each added something to the story, a formula of some sorts.

This was my third book by Karina, and I really enjoyed it. It was so perfectly fun and sexy. At first, I questioned the title/blurb, since in the beginning, no smut is being written. But it quickly started to make sense.

It was a standalone novel, with a lovable and relatable heroine, and a swoon-worthy but realistic hero. I could see this couple in my mind, and fell in love with them as the story grew.

Simply put, it's sexy, fun, and addictive. Five stars!

Being an official nerd girl myself, I absolutely adored the leading lady, Amanda, and all her inner-geekiness. She is completely adorkable. Even at the start of the story as a repressed (sexually and otherwise) girl trying hard to fit in - I found her easy to empathize with. Hers is definitely a butterfly story.
Of course no leading lady pervy-nerd-girl is complete without a cocky leading gentlemanwhore.

Estoy tratando de recordar cual fue el último libro de Karina Halle que realmente me haya enamorado. The Play casi lo logro, pero la verdad en este momento ya no estoy segura de nada. Siempre me he considerado fiel fan de su trabajo, quizá por eso siempre espero lo mejor de ella, si fuera algún otro autor dejaría pasar este libro sin mirarlo dos veces. Pero es Karina y me rompe el corazón darle 2 estrellas a uno de sus libros.

I thoroughly enjoyed Smut, I think it may be my favourite (all around) book that I’ve read so far in 2018.

It’s very tongue-in-cheek and it’s definitely not taking itself too seriously. In fact, if I’m not mistaken, Halle is probably taking the piss out of herself on many occasions in this story. On top of that, it has a cast of characters that I both adore and side-eye HARD.

Audio book review

My previous Karina Halle reads have involved lots of drama and angst, which made me curious. Can she pull off romantic comedy? Smut proves that the answer is yes—extremely well.

This book captured my attention from the very beginning with an absolutely hilarious first chapter. I fell hard for Amanda—the nerdy college student who desperately wants to be a fantasy writer despite her family’s objections. Blake is Amanda’s laid back, irritating manwhore classmate.
