Jane can count the joys of her life on one hand:
and Benjamin King
At twenty-two years old with a job she doesn’t know how to quit and a book she doesn’t know how to finish, Jane feels more than a little lost. So imagine her surprise when she meets the leading man of her own creation, not only living and breathing, but completely unaware of his own literary origin. Jane immediately takes a shining to him—of course she does, she’s half in love with him already.
But what happens when the leading lady—everything Jane is not (independent, adventurous, driven)—shows up with all the right tools to steal Ben’s heart? Will Jane submit to the story she’s worked on for years, or learn how to write her own?

This book blew me out of the water! I was invested from page one and hooked until the end. There was just so much to love about this book so Iet me share a few of these things.
We hear the story through the main character, Jane. Jane was such a relatable character which is part of really bonded me to the story. She’s in her early twenties, stuck on a writers block, and trying to figure out what to do with her life. Even as she goes through this crazy experience of her book characters coming to life, I found myself nodding along to her thoughts and decisions. It was easy to see myself doing a lot of the same things as her. I just really loved how relatable she was.
As well, Kenyon paces this book very well. Just when you think the action might be falling, something jolts it back to life. I was never bored or tired of the story.
Something that I loved (perhaps the most) was the romance in this book. Things played out exactly how I hoped they would and left me smiling and, admittedly, a little giddy. It was all the hints in the book that really did it for me though. I won’t say anymore as not to give anything away, but it was a well-written romance for the hopeless romantic in me.
Overall, it was fun, a little magical, and just romantic enough to leave me wanting more from Kenyon. Seriously, though, do you have another book coming out soon? A must-read for all!!

One of the people I follow on Instagram wrote this book so that’s how I first found out about it. It is seriously so cute! Thanks for checking out my review!
Oooh! Off The Page sounds like a great read. Sometimes, we find some interesting turns when we feel a little lost in life, which is okay and great! It is great when the character is relatable. Big plus when the book is easy to consume and read through. Glad you enjoyed the book overall! Thanks for sharing your thoughts :).
