'She Likes It Rough' by GVR Corcillo


Can daring adventures with an outdoor extremist give a daydreaming pushover the courage she needs in order to make her life count for something?

After that humiliating freak fast-food accident, discombobulated scaredy-cat Lisa Flyte finally gets fed up with letting life walk all over her. Time to get a backbone and really start living life! But how is a shrinking violet like Lisa supposed to get tough all of a sudden after a lifetime of watching from the couch?

Jack Hawkins, that's how. When Lisa finds out that the adrenaline junkie from her MBA classes needs a clueless urbanite to test his top-secret line of beginner adventure gear, she gets the most daring idea of her life: she will be his undercover test dummy if he helps her to become brave on their adventures in the wild.

They strike a deal. But can Lisa use her outdoor moxie in the real world? Will she be bold enough to pursue a career she really wants or stand up to her bullying family?

And will she get gutsy enough to go after Jack? He's a man who's not afraid of anything...except maybe of falling for Lisa.

About the author:

GVR Corcillo’s Ivy League education, white-trash sensibility, and pop culture savvy come together rather eclectically in her romantic comedies. She writes about strong female characters who try not to trip as they valiantly march to their own bongo beat.

Corcillo hit the New York Times Best Sellers List with her short story, "Jane Austen Meets the New York Giants," in the Marlo Thomas anthology The Right Words at the Right Time: Volume 2. Her short story "All Summer on a Date" was chosen as the lead story in the 2012 anthology Romancing the Pages. She Likes It Rough is her debut novel soon to be followed by Queen of the Universe.

Originally from Scranton, PA, she lives with her husband Ron Corcillo in North Hollywood, CA, where she delves into all things Los Angeles: she’s co-hosted a syndicated radio show, acted in an award-winning short film, written a screenplay for Roger Corman's Concorde Pictures, picketed during the 2007 Hollywood writers strike, and taught high school in Watts and South Central. And while she loves her life on the west coast, she’s still a die-hard New York Giants fan.
