Review: Non Friction by Morgan Parker

Title: Non Friction
Author: Morgan Parker

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.

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.

This was a different read for me as it is about a long married couple instead of couple who is just finding their love. 
We get to follow along with the inner workings of a failed marriage between Morgan and Jennifer. While filled with humor, it's more than a silly read. It's real and its touching... and Romantic. A great combination.
After his wife leaves him, Morgan finally starts taking control of his own life now that his bitchy wife is out of the way. Too bad he ends up falling for Emma, a married woman. But once Morgan's book that he wrote to get his wife back becomes a best seller, his wife is wanting him back and to go to marriage counseling.. 
Just like a real person, we follow as Morgan as he goes through a stage in his life trying to find what is important and what he needs to be happy. 
Great read!
