Man and Woman Stuck in Romance Novel Parody

Updated on June 17, 2017
4 stars for Melody's Passion

Melody can't stand Eric's guts. Until she wants him of course. Join Melody and Eric as they explore almost every single romance novel cliche out there in a romance novel love affair.

Hilarious and All Too Accurate

Anyone who has read enough romances knows there there are many common plot points. Melody's Passion shows them very accurately. And it is hilarious. From the hate to love relationship to the whirlwind romance to getting pregnant. The only place that doesn't show a cliche correctly is when they are waiting for Will's uncle to pick them up when their moving truck breaks down.

She says, “I was wondering if we could make love quick?” He says, “Well we could, but we would have to have more time for that sweetheart. I don’t do quickies. . Besides, my uncle will show up before you know it?”

In most romances, they totally would have had a quickie right then and there. But aside from this silliness, this book makes fun of a lot of romance novel cliches in a hilarious way.

Grammatically Unfortunate

The only frustrating thing about this was the really bad grammar. This story is riddled with spelling mistakes, punctuation errors, and formatting issues. Originally I thought it was part of the parody, making fun of a lot of the poorly edited romance novels there are on the market. After reading another book by the same author, I realized it wasn't part of the parody and is most likely related to her disability, which she talks about in one of her other books.

Gerty So needs a proofreader, though. Melody's Passion was a witty parody, and shows that the author is smart and has a good grasp on satirical writing and could possibly become a bestselling writer at some point. But to do that, her work needs to be more readable than it is. So I have to knock a star off for grammar. But Melody's Passion is still a really funny parody that is worth reading.
