Literarily For Keeps
She only has to pretend to be married for five days. What's the worst that could happen? Literature professor Ashleigh Darmody never imagined her life would turn into a classic trope, but that's exactly what happens when her sister Claire calls with a bizarre request--quickly find a fake husband. Backstory is a powerful thing, and Ashleigh's has plenty of shadows, but is her past so shady that it requires an elaborate scheme to ensure Claire's prospective father-in-law, renowned TV evangelist Ken Abrams, will give her his blessing to marry his son? Already divorced from a man who turned out to be other than he claimed, Ashleigh now has to pretend to be blissfully married to a stranger for the next five days. But when the lines of fiction and reality blur with each tick of the clock, could a temporary deal turn into something for keeps?

    Sarah Monzon once again demonstrates great skill in this genre. While I do not read many contemporary romance, I find there to be more than initially meets the eye in Monzon's writings. It is hard to deliver the same depth in a novella that is usually present in a full-length novel. However, Monzon demonstrates great skill as she pens a story both lighthearted and whimsical, yet with many meaningful moments in Literally for Keeps.

But it is the underlying soul-searching moments that can cause soul-searching in the reader's heart as well. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

    What a great book! The cover is spectacular, so it should lead you to pick it up.There are many lighthearted, sweetly romantic moments, but where Monzon shines with her writing is with the deeper, more meaningful messages. It's surprising that this can be accomplished within a shorter novel (novella), but it definitely can. This author truly elevates novellas to another level.Spiritual insights are portrayed from many of the characters on different topics and levels. Yet, like I mentioned above, What a great book!

    First, don’t you love the cover? It’s so whimsical! Guess what? So is the story! Whimsical and fun. Don’t get me wrong, there are some deep subjects in here. We see how easy it is to judge someone’s heart and then how that affects life. (I won’t say more because I don’t want to give anything way.) But gee, there sure is entertainment when we see how far a sister will go to help. I did a lot of giggling.This is a novella, so a quick read. And especially quick because I couldn’t put it down.

She reminds readers that Jesus loves the broken but too often, it’s those same people shamed and shunned by those calling themselves Christ-followers.I thoroughly enjoyed Monzon’s first rom-com (Bookishly Ever After), but Literarily for Keeps made a bigger, better impression—complete with loads of fun book and character references. An impression that calls for the examination of hearts and acceptance of those who need to be loved.

    I don’t know how she does it!Eep! It doesn’t seem to matter what sub-genre or page length it is, Sarah Monzon knows how to write it and evoke all the right feelings at all the right moments. After Bookishly Ever After, I thought we’d had novella perfection, but no, this one is even better. Hilarious moments of hyperbolic similes, awkward missteps, unintended outbursts, one hot kiss, and plenty of epic literary quotes all add up to one fantastic read that kept me up far too late on a work night.

    This fun rom-com was the perfect easy read. It was packed with plenty of humorous moments, some zinging romantic attraction, and deeper discussions of how Jesus wants us to treat others. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

Should be here in about three days.” He chuckled.’- Straight up, I loved it. The humour, the simple and direct way the story is told, like a friend talking to another, ... I couldn’t put it down. People need to read this book. That’s it. Sweet. Funny. Fun. Romantic. Loved it.

In no way has this influenced my opinion of the story. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. I give Literarily For Keeps 5 STARS. This book is a Contemporary Christian Romance.Literarily For Keeps is such a GOOOOOOOOOD novella! This story had me laughing so hard in some places that tears were streaming down my face. I absolutely adore Ashleigh’s character — she could be my literary soul sister. I very much appreciate how intelligent and independent she is. And I LOVE how she views her world through the lens of every great classic novel she’s ever read. It was so much fun for me to know and understand all of her literary references; it felt like Ashleigh and I speak the same language! Literarily For Keeps is a super fun read that I will make sure to keep in my re-read pile so I can enjoy this charming story again and again.One idea that really resonated with me is the concept of moving out of our comfort zones for the sake of others. At one point in the novella, Ashleigh ruminates, “Isn’t feeling a little discomfort good sometimes? We need to be shaken up by humanity’s plight, or soon we’ll all be sitting in sterile white boxes focused too much on ourselves and not enough on others.” Well said Ashleigh!!! I couldn’t agree more. It is good, especially in our day and age of instant gratification, social media blasts, and the selfie, for us to be discomforted for a moment to realize that we are NOT the center of the universe. It is easy to get caught up in the busyness of our lives, but we have to be careful we don’t become myopic to the needs of others. This blindness to others is the exact opposite of what Jesus teaches in Matthew 25: 31-46. In this passage of Scripture, Jesus proclaims that when we feed the poor, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, befriend the stranger, and visit the downtrodden in prison, we are actually doing these things to Him, too. When we do these good things not only are we making our Heavenly Father proud, but we are also ensuring that this world is a better place because of our selflessness. This is definitely a reminder I needed!I adore Literarily For Keeps and cannot recommend this book enough. The plot — fake a marriage for 5 days — is tremendously engaging, so much so I tore through this story in one sitting! The characters are wonderful and so realistic. And, the romance between Ashleigh and Landon is wonderful and satisfying. If you are looking for a fast-paced, sweet, and hilarious read then Literarily For Keeps is definitely the book for you.

He comes along and saves her day and then her life starts to go crazy. Can she really be having all these feelings? Isn’t it all supposed to be make believe? Sarah Monzon has done it again. She has given us a wonderfully entertaining book to read. One in which, we want to get to know each character personally. She brings such a fresh spin on writing. Each of her books hold lessons we can all learn. I truly enjoy reading anything this author writes.I was provided a copy of this book by the author. All opinions in this review are my own.

    Really good!Ha! I thought Ashleigh was crazy with a capital C for the majority of the book but loved her all the same. Sarah Monzon has a bomb sense of humor and I was laughing audibly on multiple occasions through the book. Although I think this book could have been just a smidge longer to develop the characters and Ashleigh and Landon’s relationship just a bit more, there was JUST enough development that I rooted for and loved them both. Five stars.

    A fun readWhat lengths will a sister go to when true love is in jeopardy? She might pretend to be married. To a stranger. How this comes to be, and where it ends up makes for a sweet and funny story. This author is new to me, but no longer! Looking forward to reading more of her work. My only complaint is this is a novella and it ended much sooner than I desired. The characters left me wanting to know more about them, yet the story is complete. I'm hoping they'll appear in other works.

After all, being a famous TV evangelist means that he is under some heavy scrutiny. But Ken and Anne want to meet Ashleigh and her husband, so what’s a girl going to do? After all, this is for her sister!Enter Landon. When he hears Ashleigh explaining her dilemma to her friends at their book club, he volunteers, much to everyone’s surprise. My romantic heart assumed that his reason was that he had heard all about her from his mom and had developed a crush on her, sight unseen. His explanation as to why he would do this was simply “personal reasons”. And a crush would be personal, right?I loved the way so many literary quotes and references were used. Ashleigh was stunned that Landon was able to finish her quotes. Their bantering was so fun. I particularly enjoyed the way Ashleigh assumed so many things about what a pastor’s wife should be like. Wow! It makes me think of Elizabeth’s retort to Mr. Darcy and Miss Bingley in Pride and Prejudice:“I am no longer surprised at your knowing only six accomplished women. I rather wonder now at your knowing any.”But don’t let the cover fool you. This is not a story full of flowers and sunshine. Author Sarah Monzon tackles some hard issues here. Ashleigh had been hurt by the church for something that wasn’t really even her fault – to the point that it didn’t affect her faith in God but it did keep her from fellowship. Almost everyone has made some rash judgments about the others and it results in secrets being exposed and eyes opened. Yet all of this is handled in a very tactful and sensitive manner with some lighthearted moments interspersed to keep it from being heavy and somber.This is a book that will make you laugh and will also make you take a second look at the way you perceive things. I hope it will help you to remember to be slower to judge others and more gracious toward those who struggle with different sins than you do."This review was originally posted on Among the ReadsI was given a free copy of this item.

The plot felt natural and unrushed despite the short length of the overall story. And the characters? Ashleigh was delightful in her crazy as she processed what it was to have feelings for a guy (I’ve been there), and Landon was so real that I could almost smell him too. I loved the line where Ashleigh considers hugging a conifer so she could experience Landon’s scent. If you are a book lover and a romance reader, you absolutely must read Literarily For Keeps.

I love being able to finish books...it doesn't happen often!!!This story is about Ashleigh, whose sister Claire is hoping to marry Noah. Only problem: Noah's dad is famous televangelist Ken Abrams, who we assume is judgmental, and everyone is concerned about putting up a "perfect family" front so that Ken approves of Claire as an acceptable wife for his son. Since Ashleigh's last name is different (because she's divorced), Claire asks Ashleigh to pretend she's still married so as not to set off any warning bells. She can't ask her ex-husband to play the part because he is gay and has hard feelings toward the church, due to his treatment after coming out. So she winds up with Landon, son of her book club friend, posing as her husband for 5 days. Landon seems to have his own reasons for wanting to do this. I would pretty much give away the entire story if I say any more!So...I recommend this story to anyone who likes cute, fun, romantic stories with some deeper issues tucked in there as well. You won't be disappointed :)

Hoping for a chance to confront the "great" Ken Abrams, he steps in to volunteer his husbandly services. As he spends time getting to know the woman he's temporarily attached to, can he hold his tongue in order to keep the peace?I loved these two together. From the first time Landon finished Ashleigh's literary quote, they seemed like the Silverstein book, Missing Piece Meets the Big O. He challenged her faith. She challenged his heart. This was a quick, fun story. I highly recommend!!
