Miranda Rose absolutely lives for writing. Unfortunately, there aren’t many readers that live for her books. At least she can distract herself from bad reviews with her favorite hobby - trolling Charlie Shivers online. That dinosaur smut peddler wouldn’t know literature if it mounted him from behind. And, for further distraction, she meets the world’s hottest guy at her favorite writing conference, and when he mounts her from behind, she forgets all about that wannabe author. Until she realizes Mr. Hottie Pants isn’t the cover model she’d presumed. He’s her archenemy in the flesh, Charlie Shivers. She’s mortified! And yet she still can’t keep her pants on around him. Joe McCoy, aka Charlie Shivers, is over the moon attending his first Romancing The World conference as a panelist, especially when he meets the smoking author at the bar. But now that he’s discovered the true identity of his one-night stand, he’s tangled in a sticky web, thicker than a spider shifter (dibs on writing that one next!) Though, sleeping with the enemy is kind of hot. And scandalous. And awesome. But then he finds himself falling hard for the too-serious novelist, and now he’s pretty sure there’s no way he’ll make it out on top.  
Miranda Rose aka Randi Rose is a serious romance novelist. Her goal is to get her work published with the one of the top 5 in the industry. She is disgusted by Charlie Shivers peddling his Dino porn because it is selling like crazy and she feels she works harder. Miranda engages in juvenile behavior by 1 starring all of Charlie Shivers work and basically stalking him. Their paths cross when they attend a romance convention. Not knowing who he is in person Miranda meets Charlie/Joe and thinks he is a model. They hit it off and they quickly jump into bed.

Miranda’s internal dialogue came across as too insta-love for my tastes. She had this scenario in her head of pursuing a relationship pretty much within minutes of meeting Joe. To be fair Joe was pretty much insta-love bound after they hook up too. The next day they discover each other’s true identities and as you can imagine it doesn’t go well. The best part of this story for me was the hate sex. YOWZA! These scenes were pretty great even though it was preceded by juvenile hate talk. I did really like Miranda and Joe’s sense of humor and personalities but I was put off by their childish antics.

Topped is a cute romantic comedy; but for me personally I felt comedy came off as trying too hard. That being said if you like a light comedy with some steamy sex and insta-love/lust you will like this.
