Hi, I'm Kate Bjorkman. What do you do if you've lived a real romance with a great guy and he loves you as much as you love him? Simple, I wrote a romance novel with help from THE ROMANCE WRITER'S PHRASE BOOK. Nothing is made up. I want truth and conflict even in romance. I'm betting you'll want the same.
The Unlikely Romance of Kate Bjorkman is a cute and festive romance, and I found it so interesting how the book is written as though the main character is writing it. It tells the story of a girl who falls in love with her brother’s best friend, and it is still relatable despite being written in the 90s. I personally thought the book went a bit overboard as Kate tries to describe events happening in her life just as a cringey romance author would. The first few lines were funny, but once every paragraph is filled with bad descriptions and cheesy metaphors, the story becomes a cringey romance itself. I just wish there was a bit more to the plot than the main character writing her book.
