Her fake husband is a Work In Progress…

Work in Progress, an all-new romantic comedy from Staci Hart, is available now!


I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.

But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.

Thomas Bane.

Bestselling author. 
Notorious bad boy. 
Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. 
And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.

Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. 
Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. 
All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. 
None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.

But first, I have to survive the kiss.

And with lips like his, my heart doesn’t stand a chance.

Work of Gold, that's the real title because this book isn't progress, it's gold! Staci Hart brought the feels, the doubts, and the innocence. Once she had you hooked, she beat you over the head with a club. (Fine it was words and a carefully crafted plot twist, but it felt like a motherfluffing club.) 

Work in Progress is a blogger's secret fairytale fantasy. One I'm sure most don't realize they have this particular fantasy until they read the blurb. Let me tell you though, once I feasted my greedy eyes on the storyline, there was no holding me back. It's a modern fairytale, wishful thinking, and a happy dream all in one. It's sexy, sweet, and 100% realist without jeopardizing a happy or changing the integrity of the story. So it's a work of Gold!

Join the Red Lipstick Coalition. Raise your red. Be brave. Be you. Be everything you want to be... a Work in Progress.

This was a difficult review to write I've gone back and forth several times trying to put my thoughts down. The synopsis appealed to me, sexy bad boy author meets shy blogger and a fake marriage thrown in, too. 

I liked the story, however, it took me a while to get into it. In fact, for a large portion of the book, I felt disconnected to the characters and the story. I actually took a break from the book then started from the beginning again but I felt the same. I want to make clear it's not the writing because there is nothing wrong with it. There is no problem with the plot and the story timeline flows... 

I came to the realisation it was me and that's ok. Not all readers will feel the same about every book and sometimes we click with characters and sometimes we don't. Don't let my feelings put you off just because it wasn't a "WOW book" for me -- doesn't mean it won't be a book you'll love.

About the Author
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven-year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
