DNF @ 3 hours. I just cannot get on board with romances beginning when characters are in other serious relationships.

This is one of those books that should be getting ridiculous, viral TikTok-level-hype. To the point, The Roughest Draft is a perfect draft—a 5-star read (which for me means there’s nothing I’d change about it). It’s about jealousy, ambition, insecurity, and estranged writing partners with a past involving an enigmatic inciting incident—former friends who have to hole up in a Florida house to finish a cowritten book.

The story spans their forced book-writing time, which is less writing retreat and more writing war zone. Like Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas in War of the Roses: the hot Floridian house is the combative battlefield; the dining room with the single laptop, the war room; the tacit words fly from fingertips onto the screen like grenades being launched. In the beginning, it’s a mostly silent war with the constant rat-tat-tat of the keyboard and some occasional direct hits, landing with audible digs. These two—while alienated for four years—know how to target the other, finding their intimate knowledge of one another wasn’t obliterated like the ending of their friendship.

Reading this book was a perfect push-pull balance. It begins with an inquiry. Instantly intrigued, I wanted to know what happened between them while still enjoying all the potential landmines from Kat and Nathan’s forced proximity. I loved all the layers of the plot and characters and the meta-writing where the boundaries between fact and fiction feel blurry at best. I’m a sucker for books about books or writers or stories, and this one is certainly a book that captures the beauty and vulnerability and intimacy and importance of writing: “Fiction comes from truth. It is a wonderful, imaginative, flourishing thing grown from a seed of real feelings, real desires, real fears. No artist ever creates from nothing. We work from what we’ve experienced, inspired by the unique piece of the world we see. It’s why art cannot be replicated” (244-245).

Did I love it? No. Did I hate it? No. Will I reread? Also no.
