Shy Girls


Title: Shy Girls Write It Better (Some Girls Do It Book 1)

Author: May Sage

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Book Blurb:

Cassie Franklin trips over nothing on perfectly flat surfaces every day, and she cannot seem to be able to simultaneously speak and look into her audience’s eyes.
Cassandra Frank is the ultimate tease; her words have aroused, intrigued and captured the heart of thousands…
And somehow, they are the same person.

Hiding the fact that she writes erotica isn’t much of a challenge – no one would ever think that a plain, boring little accountant like Cassie could so much as read anything so scandalous…
But one day, she makes a huge mistake.

Carter Harris employs so many people he can’t exactly recall all their names, but strangely, he knows her. She isn’t an executive, she isn’t sexy, or otherwise noticeable, but the girl is cute – in a helpless, unique sort of way.
He can’t pretend to say she ever crosses his mind, though… Until the day he finds the manuscript she worked on during her lunch hour.

Shy girls write it better is an adult romance with explicit content. Standalone novella ending on a happily for now note.


My Review:

Disclaimer: This book is rated 18+ due to adult language (lots of swearing) and adult situations (sex scenes).


Cassie Franklin is a shy, introverted accountant at Harris Toys who’s hiding a deep secret. Accountant by day and bestselling erotic romance author by night. It all started when she had extra time at work and decided to write a romance to kill time. Flash forward and she’s got three bestsellers under her belt. Her shyness kills her social life but that doesn’t stop her from having a serious crush with the CEO of Harris Toys, Carter Harris.


Carter Harris is a busy man and when he first met Cassie, he thinks she’s cute and helpless. Her awkwardness makes him smile yet he never asks her out because for one, she’s an employee and for two, she’s not his type. But when a chance meeting in the breakroom between him and Cassie allows him a hidden glimpse into her alter ego, he can’t resist the temptation. They become friends and he even helps her with her brand new BDSM romance. Carter’s about to discover some girls (especially shy ones) do it better.


I loved this romance by May Sage! I’ve read her fairy tale retellings but with Shy Girls, I couldn’t put it down. I read it in one sitting. Addictive to read and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. The chemistry between Cassie and Carter sizzles on the page. Witty, humorous banter makes the dialogue sing and I could totally envision each scene.


Favorite Character/Quote: Cassie. She’s a shy, slightly clumsy girl who’s been in love with the head of Harris Toys for years. She’s smart and a successful erotic romance author, too. I loved the way she blossoms into an outgoing sexy woman in this book.

May Sage


Author Biography:

May is a USA Today Bestselling Author based in the middle of nowhere, Cornwall, England.


When she isn’t writing about sassy women and alpha males, she can generally be found playing with her cat and her puppy, eating cake, or reading about sassy women and alpha males. Yep, she’s that kinda recluse.


Her first love is paranormal romance but she’s not that faithful, so expect to find anything from shifters, princes and kings, to aliens and billionaires in her bibliography!


Please note that May writes novels and novellas. Some of her books end on cliffhanger. Read the description to know what you’re signing up for. Also: note that none of her books are suitable for those who like clean romance.
