About the Book:
If you find yourself talking to Jayne Dandy, keep the conversation on Star Wars and rubber ducks—best not to mention men, dating, or S-E-X. Because Jayne is fine with the way things are: writer of obituaries and garage sale ads by day, secret scribe of adventures in distant galaxies by night. But her crippling fear of intimacy has made her the butt of jokes since forever, and hiding behind her laptop isn’t going to get her lightsaber lit.

After her therapist recommends that she write erotica as a form of exposure therapy, Jayne joins forces with pen and paper to combat the demons that won’t let her kiss and tell. Unexpectedly downsized at work, she adopts a pseudonym and secretly self-publishes one of her naughty books to make ends meet. When her adorable, long-time friend Luke, co-owner of the popular Portland food truck Luke Piewalker’s, hears she’s been demoted, he insists on hiring her to sling ├ęclairs and turnovers at his side. Her secret must be kept, but sparks ignite between them, sending Jayne and her X-Wing into a tailspin that will either make her face down her neuroses or trigger a meltdown of Death Star proportions.

My Review

I LOVE Eliza Gordon!! This is the second book I’ve read of her’s and was NOT disappointed! I really enjoy her writing style, light and witty. I love the voice she gives to her female leads. They are smart and independent, funny & lovable. Eliza is for sure an author that I will ALWAYS one click! I can depend on her to give me a great story, and Neurotica was just that, a GREAT story!
Jayne is a twenty-something, smart, funny, Sci-Fi Junky that just so happens to have issues with the S word……….SEX. No traumatic reasons as to why, just a weird quirk of hers, along with loving Ducks. She secretly writes Erotica via a pen name and when something happens is forced to publish her work to earn her some money. Luckily it takes off! But she does not want anyone to know it’s her……so she ropes in her friend to be her front.
Did I mention she has a crush on Luke “Pie” Walker?? The hot food truck owner that makes panty melting turnovers? They have tons in common, but Jayne is afraid to take it out of the ‘friend zone’ because as the mean girls in HS called her…….”Janie Prudie” she is afraid of SEX.
The side characters added a lot of funny escapades. Jayne’s best friend, the food critic, Luke’s quirky sister Leia and Jayne’s crazy neurotic family. ALL of these people helped Jayne realize that she needs to let go of her issues and not be ashamed of who she REALLY is!
This book was FUN, FUNNY, & SMART. It gave me all the feels without the sex. It made me happy while reading it and that will keep me coming back for more every time!

A purveyor of fictions, Eliza Gordon has excellent taste in books, shoes, movies, and friends, and questionable sanity in the realm of love. Best leave that one alone. www.elizagordon.com
