Book Title: Non Friction
Author: Morgan Parker
Release Date: December 31st, 2013
Hosted By: A Dirty Book Affair
After 12 years, 4 months and 1 and 1/2 weeks of marriage, his wife packs up and leaves with their daughter. So he writes an Indie novel. And it becomes a bestseller. Well, sort of.
His fame brings him the lifestyle of a rockstar, and he has the fan mail (i.e. female undergarments, probably clean) to prove it.
But seeing his fame, his wife suddenly believes in marriage counseling. Their homework: to create something beautiful for each other.
So he writes Our Story, his literary secret-weapon that will win his wife back. But in the process he discovers that true love is more than just ticking the right boxes on a checklist.
4 out of 5 stars from me. I found the story to be a wonderful change of pace. It was nice to read a story told from a mans point of view. The writing was witty, heartfelt, and charming. I laughed out load on many occasions along with dabbing my eyes with tissue on others. It broke my heart to see how awful Morgan’s wife Princess W***** had treated him. But I can tell you from experience that between hearing their story through the “Scrapbook Sessions” and just Princess Whores own words directed at Morgan, I can appreciate her frustration of being married for 12 years and being unhappy. The story had several twists and turns throughout. I think the relationship between Emma and Morgan was the true clincher. It was up and it was down. It was going to be special, it was going to be a ship passing in the night. The ending, for sure will throw you off your rocker….Hang on for that! It was out of left field for sure!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Morgan Parker is the pen name for a shy and introverted former banker. Because he could never balance his cash at the end of the banking day, he made up stories in order to keep his job. None of those stories was Textual Encounters, which is great because readers will discover a truly unique and original romance that has never been told before.

What starts out as a message intended for someone else ends up being the beginning of a relationship more powerful than anything Christine or Jake have ever experienced.
