Genre: NA Romantic Comedy
There’s nothing sexy about her humdrum life as a mum. But is her husband’s crazy scheme a bit too exciting?
Sarah’s mind-numbing housewife existence is turning her brain to mush. With her third bun in the oven, this British mum is drowning under a mountain of playdates, bills, and head lice checks. But her man’s get-rich-quick idea of writing steamy novels isn’t her ideal way to dial up life’s passion.
Drew desperately wants a break from Sarah’s whinging. And if that means researching how to write racy books all by himself, then he’ll make the sacrifice. But as he finally warms Sarah up to the sultry side hustle, their R-rated private project gets publicly exposed…
With an office scandal brewing, it’s only a matter of time before gawking workers and a perfectly nosy PTA president turn them into social pariahs.
Can Sarah and Drew earn some extra income from sizzling lit without falling prey to stiff gossip?
Erotic Fiction is a charming comedy for fans of humorous fiction. If you like sweet love stories, endearing characters, and dry British humor, then you’ll adore Kindle Storyteller Award Winner Hannah Lynn’s delightful tale.
Hannah Lynn is an award-winning novelist. Publishing her first book, Amendments – a dark, dystopian speculative fiction novel, in 2015, she has since gone on to write the multi award winning The Afterlife of Walter Augustus – a contemporary fiction novel with a supernatural twist, Fiona and the Whale – a thought provoking romantic comedy and the delightfully funny and poignant Peas and Carrots series.
While she freely moves between genres, her novels are recognisable for their character driven stories and wonderfully vivid description.
She is currently working on a YA Vampire series and a reimaging of a classic Greek myth.
Born in 1984, Hannah grew up in the Cotswolds, UK. After graduating from university, she has spent twelve years as a teacher of physics, first in the UK and then around Asia and Europe. It was during this time, inspired by the imaginations of the young people she taught, she began writing short stories for children, and later adult fiction. Now as a teacher, writer, wife and mother, she is currently living in the Jordan.

I’m not gonna lie. This had me cracking up just like the little blurb said I would. I think about the mom life, and while I’m not a mom to human kids, I could only imagine how stressful it is staying at home with them all day. For me, it’s easy with the dogs because we can just sleep and wake up and cuddle and go back to sleep. Nothing really hard for me, and the dogs can keep themselves occupied because there’s four of them.
So with the idea of writing steamy smut to make some side income, I totally get that. I personally can’t write smut and I don’t know if I would want to use my personal experience as the inspiration for said smut, but hey. You gotta do what you gotta do. I personally thought it was cool that Drew somehow got Sarah to be more comfortable with this idea. I don’t even know if I could even do that! So this was fun to read because I got to escape my own life and marriage for a bit, and see what it would be like to write some snarky smut with my partner. Although I would be really pissed off if someone else in my world decided to basically shut shame me for trying to make some extra income like that. And hello? It’s not like it’s it was porn or anything. It’s just writing. How many romance novels write sex scenes in their novels? You know??
But anyway. I think this book got really interesting and again I thought this was pretty fun.
