Miranda Rose absolutely lives for writing. Unfortunately, there aren’t many readers that live for her books.

At least she can distract herself from bad reviews with her favorite hobby - trolling Charlie Shivers online. That dinosaur smut peddler wouldn’t know literature if it mounted him from behind. And, for further distraction, she meets the world’s hottest guy at her fav

There are some reads which must have the right attitude to get the "full flavor". You have to be open to just go with the flow and let it take you where it wants to go. Kayti McGee was new to me. I didn't have a clue of her writing style or anything she had done before. All I had to go on was a blurb which caught my attention and made me say, Yes... I think I could get into this...

And I Did :DDD

Such a weird book honestly. If there's something that puts me off, it's when authors introduce their own books like this: "omg you're going to wee in your pants by hilariousness of this book!!1!". Ugh, just no. The characters were interesting and the story was, too. However, I didn't like the writing at all. This is a pretty short book and I've skimmed most of the conversations the characters had with their friends because I was bored out of my mind. This book had potential, let's be ho

Kayti McGee hit it out of the park with Topped! I read this book in one sitting while I was on a flight, and I disturbed the people around me when I started crying-snorting-can’t-breathe-laughing. There’s this particular dress up scene … you’ll know it when you read it. And now I’m laughing again! Man, it really tickles me whenever I think about that scene.

What can I tell you about Topped? This book is hilarious and smart and witty and so damn hot! Miranda and Joe are lovable, sexy, zany, and r

Topped should have a warning on the cover: Relieve your bladder prior to reading Topped, the author is not responsible for any leakage while enjoying this story. Topped is a sexy, Rom-Com satire that causes intense laughter that eventually leads to wheezing because it's that funny.

Joe McCoy, aka Charlie Shivers, proud smut slinger, writes outrageous stories including his famous dino butt porn. Yup, dino's doing it in the butt (yes, dinosaur erotica does exist on Amazon). He's

5 stars because I can't go any higher!!!!

This book has it all:

intense emotions check
hot cover models check
dino porn double check
catty bitches club meeting

But what takes the cake and I think makes the entire book an award winner is the Zombie Robots. It is the classiest book yet, Charlie is definitely going to win awards. Oops, this is supposed to be about Kayti's book not Charlie's. Well, perhaps once you read both, you will realize which is more life changing than the other!

This book is insane

Shining dinosaurs and brolicious nonsense, I'll give it that


Look, this book was cute. But all the butt banging dino references and bro-business was just a bit much.

Setting / Time / Genre: Current

Length: short to normal

Series: I don't think so, but what do I know?

Sexy times: A couple of bangity bangs between the MCs and lot's of references to sexy times and banging beasts. Not for the shy among you, though. Trust me on this one.

Synopsis: The heroine
OMG! Let me start off by saying that TOPPED by Kayti McGee was SEXY, HILARIOUS, and absolutely RIDICULOUS GOOD FUN! This was my first read from Kayti on her own, and I got to say, I LOVE her style! Her writing? Smart, fun, and full of wit! I was IN once I read the blurb, but MY GOD, I didn't expect something like this! I couldn't wipe the grin off of my face. Full of 'TMI' and 'BRO' moments, Miranda and Joe will leave you in stitches with their entertaining, and sometimes absurd, banter.

I thought Under Covers was THE funniest book I ever read. Shut the front door - Topped was even funnier.

Thinking about my review whilst driving home from work, I was snort laughing in the car! What the F kind of boxed wine was Kayti drinking when she wrote this book? She has to, has to have been shit faced, pissed as a fart, off her trolley!

I never ever use LOL (I hate it) so instead I will say, I laughed so much I may have weed.

Topped was one hilarious, ridiculous, sexy as hell and awesome book! It’s a story of enemies, lovers, bizarre-smut and a crazy author’s convention. I cracked up the whole time reading this book. Miranda and Joe were archenemies in the author’s world and they took their rivalry to the ultimate level. The truth was that they didn’t know who they really were, or how they looked like, so, when they were hanging out at the bar of the book convention hotel, they hitted off, t

Miranda Rose aka Randi Rose is a serious romance novelist. Her goal is to get her work published with the one of the top 5 in the industry. She is disgusted by Charlie Shivers peddling his Dino porn because it is selling like crazy and she feels she works harder. Miranda engages in juvenile behavior by 1 starring all of Charlie Shivers work and basically stalking him. Their paths cross when they attend a romance convention.

This book was a fantastic, fun and easy read. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Miranda Rose a.k.a Randi Rose has an arch nemesis Charlie Shivers (Joe McCoy). Author of crazy dinosaur smut. While Randi is struggling to get her books out there Shivers has a huge following for someone who she considers a not-a-real author, so what does she do... she trolls him online.

Received a copy for an honest review.
To say this book was different is an understatement. It is hilarious to be honest. These characters prove the saying thin line between love and hate. The dialogue is witty and has me laughing out loud. Joe's stories are ridiculous but underneath his outrageous writing style is a warm caring man with a great sense of humor.
Miranda is a tad uptight but her sense of humor comes out. She writes more along the lines of contemporary romance and can't believe how w

There is something about a Kayti McGee novel that puts a smile on my face and a sigh on my lips (not to mention a squeeze in my thighs). She knows how to write romantic comedy that makes you laugh, makes you cry, and even makes you feel a little amorous. Okay, a lot amorous.

Topped takes you into the world of romance novels, introducing you to Miranda, whose popularity as a writer is the sort that you suspect McGee herself occupies: not Danielle Steele, EL James famous, but enough of a known tale

This is my very first Kayti McGee experience, and I wasn't disappointed. From the very beginning she had me laughing out loud.

Miranda Rose, is a Romance writer, desperately trying to break into the Top 100 on Amazon. Her arch nemesis, Charlie Shivers, who writes out to lunch, off the wall, ridiculous romance novels always seems to be landing in the Top 100. She can't believe that people are buying this crap. So, she trolls his Amazon page, posting bad reviews and giving him 1 star ratings. She h

If you have read Meghan Quinn's books before , then you will understand what I mean when I say that Topped is up there with the Randy Romance Novelist. At first I wasn't sure what to expect with Topped as I had an idea that it would be a romantic comedy but I wasn't sure exactly what level whether it would be more Alice Clayton or Meghan Quinn scale and I have to say this was defintely up there on my list for LOL books. It was hilarious and I found myself chuckling right through the entire book ...more

I absolutely loved Topped. I knew it would be a funny and light read and it was a perfect way to forget my day. Miranda is a romance writer but she just can't seem to get a huge following. She blames this on her arch nemesis, Charlie Shivers. He writes dinosaur porn and has such a huge following and it makes Miranda furious. When a romance convention comes to her town, Miranda decides this is her year. She will get in with the in crowd, get a publicist, and out do Charlie.

If you are looking for a short read, that is hilarious from start to finish (with a side of romance/sexiness), then you definitely need to read this book! I was just introduced to Kayti's work, and I am so pleased that I was!

I was drawn in by the blurb, as I thought it sounded like good fun. As soon as I started reading, the hilarity ensued. The author made sure to hit us straight away, really showing what their writing style is like. It was a brilliant start, which easily made me want to read

This book was cute, if a bit silly. There were many things to like, and several things just drove me crazy.

What I liked: First were the characters. They were cute, especially together. Both when they liked each other and when they tried really hard to hate, their actions and banter were enjoyable. The sex scenes were hot, albeit a bit rushed. The author angle intrigued me and made me realize that the different genres cater their niches for their fan bases.

Topped is the first book I have read by this author.

Hmmm this book is a romantic comedy and it is funny, but the humour is almost slapstick.

I love a good funny book but this book was just a little too silly. I know you’re wondering how a funny book can be too silly but honestly I just found at times I knew exactly what silly thing would happen next and instead of laughing I was cringing.

Miranda is a romance writer. She is good, but not a best seller. And it kills her. Then there are people out there like, Charlie Shivers, who makes the best seller list writing gay dino porn. She hates Charlie with a passion. In her eyes, it is not fait she spends months writing the perfect novel, and he spends 30 mins! And becomes an instant hit.

This book made me laugh like crazy in places. Miranda is a romance writer, but she's frustrated that she can't break into the top 100 on Amazon. Her nemesis writes weird books and is constantly there. She just doesn't get it. What's so special about Charlie Shivers? She is excited about going to a writers conference in her city this week. It will save her so much money on not having to pay for travel and a room when she lives close by. Everything changes the first night she's there. She's in the ...more

There were parts of this book I really loved, the wit and humour in this book had me laughing so hard I cried at times. Some of the things that happened were so cringeworthy you couldn’t help laughing.

Definitely a fan for life. This author thoroughly impressed and entertained me in Topped, book two in the Under Covers series. I adored this captivating and sweet romance just as much as book one in this series, maybe a smidge more. Kayti McGee once again delivers a novel to her readers that is sexy, cute, fun, unique, and quirky with a splash of naughty.

Some of the things said in this book are over the top, but it works. How can you not anticipate laughing in this one when the hero writes dino porn. Miranda is trying to make a name in the writing world then you have Joe one of the biggest names. She believes life is so unfair when she's struggling and Joe is high on sales. Miranda and Joe are enemies, but that doesn't stop instant attraction. They have a love/hate thing going on because they can't stand one another, but the chemistry is HOT! If ...more

Soooooo, I see others' opinions are divided and I'm sitting here like, yeah, did I love it?, or did I hate it?, because there's really no other option here.
You know what, it was so hilarious and witty, even if it was sometimes borderline ridiculous and the hero was an arrogant prick at the beginning, I can't help myself, 5 weirdo stars. Super funny, super sexy, super odd, and I loved it.

From Joe aka Charlie choices in writing topics to Miranda crazy antics and wardrobe choices, I couldn't stop laughing. If you add witty banter and crazy hot chemistry, this story will keep you glued to your kindle.
After all the sexing and screaming matches, troll behaviour and backstabbing, there were tender moments that made me melt.
This book has everything I need in a story.
Can't already wait for this author's next book.
