Stud in the Stacks is by Pippa Grant. This is my second book by Pippa, the first being Mister McHottie. I have to admit right up front here that I am just in love with this book. I mean, it’s about a hot male librarian that knows practically every romance novel ever written! How could I not fall in love?!

Who knew that the second book I would read in this new year would be another 5-star read??? Pippa Grant, where the bloody heck have you been all my life? This book was ridonkulous fun of epic proportions!! It was sexy, romantic, funny, charming, and a good time was had by all.

The Plot
Parker Elliot attends a bachelor auction to bid with the $50,000 she bribed from her boss. Long story. Just as long as the story behind why she’s at the bachelor auction to begin with. She needs a date and not

NOTE: This coming year I have set a challenge for myself of reading one book a week that takes me out of my comfort zone. A book that may include one (or more) tropes (scenarios) that I avoid like the plague. Cheating. Older women/younger man. OW drama. Just to name a few. Nothing is off limits. I am taking a HUGE step out of the box I usually live in and charting a course into the unknown (HaHa). My reviews for these books will differ from my usual as I will focus more on whether the author

Librarian Knox Moretti has a love for reading. That extends to romance novels and playing hero in his real life. Parker Elliot is in need of a hot date for her high school reunion. When she sets her sights on Knox, she doesn’t realize they’ve met before. But then neither does he.

This story started out really cute. I thought I might never watch The Lion King the same way again. But that’s okay, because the new imagery is much….hotter. Knox was likable from the start. His narration was light-hear

This was a Hoot! From the first tease of the Blurb to actual reading of the tale. Pippa Grant took her love of all things Romance and spread it over these pages. She gave virtual hugs to authors and appreciation to readers who love them. With ever nod to the Romance industry... a face palming smile erupted.

This was cute, but also SUPER cringe-y and the humor got so annoying by the end. :( Honestly, I wish I could give the first 50% 4 stars and the last 50% 2 stars. I also had a LOT of issues with the heroine's brothers and their super gross, endless toxic masculinity displays. Full review coming when I decide what to rate this! ...more

Wait, wait…..this one’s better….
Move over Parker, there’s only room for ME on Knox’s “vine”!
Oh, and there’s this one….*snort*
I’ll gladly help Knox hide his anaconda, ‘cause his loincloth sure isn’t doing the job!

Okay, okay….enough of my terrible jokes. But seriously….you know what’s absolutely NOT terrible? THIS BOOK!!!! Holy freaking moly I LOVED this book so hard. Like, HARD hard, ya know what I’m saying? *wink*

I laughed and laughed and laughed…

Parker and Knox – all the characters in this laugh out loud romantic comedy – had me laughing uncontrollably. Their conversations were refreshingly honest even as they were filled with innuendoes, one-liners and punch lines. With a high school reunion at the center, I wondered occasionally if I had actually dropped into the hallowed (ha ha) halls of my alma mater. Not in a juvenile way but in a way that spoke volumes about how much Parker and her friends knew, a

3.5 Mr Romance Stars

This was a fun and sexy ROM-COM with a charming, romantic hero who just happens to love reading romance books.

Knox is a librarian who is a also known as Mr Romance. He is a book blogger with a love for romance books. If I'm going to be honest, I'm not really swooning over a hero who is a romance novel enthusiast. Am I being sexist? Probably but it's just my preference. In any case once I looked past that I did really get to love Knox because he was seriously sexy and endearin

4.5 stars.
Loved this one even more than the first book.
Parker and Knox's story was just so much sweeter and endearing while still containing all the same funny and sexy elements that had me enthralled with Sia and Chase's story.
Less screwball comedy but still super hilarious.

I loved the story and plot but the heroine was just too... much for me. She’s an almost 40 year old career oriented professional who doesn’t want marriage or kids. Ok... but she’s also shy, awkward, clumsy and the guitarist in a cover band. The things she says and thinks we’re just too over the top for me. She was constantly wet, her nipples reached out (bad mental image) and tried to grab and her pussy was just a little too vocal for me. I think she would have been better toned down a bit. But ...more

Well, well, well. Another 2018 fave, already?! Not questioning things. I enjoyed this immensely. Full of humor, steam, and love.

Parker has a situation: No date for her high school reunion, and she's determined to show all those bullies of yesteryear that she's a successful, take-charge woman who's thriving in
This was better than I expected, actually I considered skipping this one altogether, but I'm a sucker for reading books in their suggested order. This isn't really part of any series, but characters from the previous book make an appearance, and it just bugs me if that happens and I didn't get a reference or a joke or whatever. And the author listed this as the next book, so here I am.
Anyway, this is better than I thought it'd be. I didn't know how I'd feel about Knox, but he was great. He was f

DNF at 18%. Breaking the fourth wall is not working for me. Piling up on the heroine’s humiliation is also not working for me. That she doesn't read totally turns me off.
Not for me.

Oh my God. Can I give this book 50 stars? Please? Because never have I read a greater love song to the genre of romance than this book.

Another cute and sexy one from this author. I think I liked Mister McHottie more, but this one was still super fun and over the top silly - but not too over the top. It made me snort-laugh a lot.

Parker & Knox first meet at a bachelor auction, he's the one strutting on stage in a loincloth. She bids & loses. Ouch, he was a little disappointed too. The winner gets one date & all the proceeds are donated to charities. Desperate for a date to her high school reunion, Parker waits for Knox outside the venue, digs deep for some courage to ask the question & then shoves a piece of paper with her number into his chest & quickly scurries off.

Pippa Grant is one of the best romance authors out there, and I love pretty much everything she puts out. This wasn't my favorite by her, but it's really hard to top some of the other books she's written. I really liked the meta aspect of this one with the romance novels. And I was so excited to see some of Pippa Grant's recommendations!

I am super excited to read more Pippa Grant, and I need to catch up on everything she's written so far. And I want her to write more books right now. I can't res

Review copy was received from Publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Karen White, the narrator, brought this audio to my attention. I'm glad she did because the author was new to me, and this was fun.  Although, some of the sexy banter or sex terminology made me blush or cringe.

Parker is the oldest and has all younger brothers. She comes from a geeky nerd background in high school to a highly succes

If you're looking for adorable and cute: look no further.
I will admit to being sucked into this one because he is a librarian, which I mean... how can you not want to read about a guy who digs romance novels and helps people find the books they want?? Granted how his job works isn't really how it is done IRL, but you can't get everything right. (LOL in what world would someone working reference do Storytime regularly??)

But, it is a sweet, cute, and the chemistry between them is natural

Right from the start, I knew I was going to love Stud in the Stacks. The whirl-wind romance begins as we meet Knox, a one-time erotic dancer (had to pay for college somehow), now librarian, who specializes in romance and has his own romance blog. He’s participating in a bachelor auction to raise money for literacy. Knox is sharp and witty, confident and caring. I fell for him immediately. He is a god of a romance reader and a librarian. He’s sexy, sweet, and most of all kind, helping all those a ...more

This book was fantastic! It was hilarious and smart but sexy and sweet all at the same time.

I adore that the Hero of the story was the romance reader and the heroine was not. It was something you don’t read about but something I’m keenly aware is a reality. Men read romance too you guys!

I can’t even tell you how excited I was to see so many of my favorite books and authors mentioned in this story. It really makes for an awesome reading experience when you can connect with the characters in suc
Low-key only read this book for a challenge.. and ended up liking it a lot.

Stud in the Stacks is kind of like a second chance at romance. Well, at least for Parker. She kind of has to face her ex-husband at a reunion.. and just doesn't want to do it alone. It sucks ass that her boss wants to make a deal with him but eh, I'm sure she will find someone.

Enter Knox, aka Tarzan. No really, he dresses up like him. When he isn't messing around in the jungle, he's a librarian. He also loves to read some
