“A great friends-to-lovers romance, with a realistic representation of sobriety/alcoholism that doesn’t gloss over the reality of addiction. Sophie figures out what went wrong, and Dash accepts that even in recovery, he is worthy of love.”
— Stephanie Rivera, Chapter Two...a Bookstore, Lompoc, CA

Staff Reviews

Full of tractor kinks, a trip to the Ripped Bodice, and a fish named Rain Boots -- how could you go wrong with Plot Twist?

Plot Twist follows Sophie, a struggling romance author, as she reconnects with her past exes to seek inspiration for her looming deadline. Cue Dash, a struggling sober ex-actor who would love to live out his days peacefully making pots. He's also her neighbor and BFF's brother. While the tropes seem familiar, Erin La Rosa's deep dive into Dash's struggle with sobriety sparks a flame in Sophie and Dash's story that I haven't felt before in romance.

Plot Twist's deep exploration into the struggles of sobriety is as real as it gets for a rom-com. Dash's experience is so moving that we wonder if this is really his story? Sophie is stellar, but Dash is so compelling we read on for his sober journey. We need more sobriety stories in romance and this one is absolutely riveting.

"I give it five stars--and five chili pepper emojis." --Kate Spencer, author of In a New York Minute

She's written off more than she can chew...

Romance author Sophie Lyon's ironic secret just went viral: she's never been in love--and it's ruining her reputation. With a manuscript deadline looming, Sophie makes an ambitious plan to overcome her writer's block: reunite with her exes (including her last girlfriend Carla, the one person she could have loved) to learn why she's never fallen in love, and document it all for her millions of new online followers.

Luckily, Sophie's reclusive landlord, Dash Montrose--a former teen heartthrob--has social media all figured out and is willing to help. What he doesn't mention is that he's an anonymous online crafter, a hobby that helps him maintain his sobriety. No one knows about his complicated relationship with alcohol, and with a family that's Hollywood royalty, Dash has to steer clear of scandal.

As Sophie and Dash grow closer, they discover a heat between them that rivals Dash's pottery kiln. But Sophie needs to figure out who she is outside her relationships, and Dash isn't sure he's stable enough for the commitment she deserves. So Sophie suggests what any good romance author would: a friends-with-benefits arrangement. Surely a strictly casual relationship won't cause any trouble...

"Spicy. Sexy. Swoony. Rachel Lynn Solomon and Christina Lauren fans will love this story " --Suzanne Park, author of So We Meet Again and The Do-Over
