I’m so excited to share my thoughts on Sariah Wilson’s The Seat Filler. It releases today so if you haven’t preordered, download your ebook copy stat! This book is a clean romance read and has all the feels.
About the Book
The movie star and the dog groomer are one kiss away from the perfect love story. That’s the hiccup in a warm and witty romance by the bestselling author of Roommaid.
The meet-cute award goes to dog groomer Juliet Nolan. It’s one of Hollywood’s biggest nights when she volunteers as a seat filler and winds up next to movie heartthrob Noah freaking Douglas. Tongue tied and toes curling in her pink Converse, she pretends that she doesn’t have a clue who he is. It’s the only way to keep from swooning.
She’s pretty and unpretentious, loves his dog, and is not a worshipping fan. No way Noah’s giving up on her, even if his affectionate pursuit comes with a bump: Juliet has a pathological fear of kissing and the disappointments that follow. What odds does romance have without that momentous, stupendous, once-in-a-lifetime first smooch? Patient, empathetic, and carrying personal burdens of his own, Noah suggests a remedy: they rehearse.
The lessons begin. The guards come down. But there’s another hitch they weren’t betting on. As for that cue-the-orchestra-and-roll-credits happy ending? It might take more than practice to make it perfect.
I’ve read every single book Sariah Wilson has written so it was a no brainer when I got an opportunity to read an ARC copy of The Seat Filler. And I wasn’t disappointed!
This book is written quintessential Wilson style with the perfect meet cute, witty dialogue between Juliet and Noah, and all the feels as they progress from acquaintances to friends to more!
I can’t even begin to list the whys of why I loved this book so much. Maybe it was the backstory of why Ms. Wilson wrote the story (if you don’t know how big of a fan she is of Kylo Ren, you don’t follow her on social media enough). Maybe it was how awesome of a hero Noah is. Maybe it was the unique fear she gave Juliet. All I know is I binged read this in one sitting. Then I told my friends how awesome it was. Then I read it again, you know in case I missed some awesomeness the first time around for reading so fast. Then I waited a couple of months and read again because I had to make sure to convey how awesome the book was for review.
Hopefully I’ve managed to do so. 😉
*I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and was not influenced or required to review it. I did so because the book needs to be on your TBR pile!
About the Author
USA Today Bestselling author Sariah Wilson has never jumped out of an airplane, never climbed Mt. Everest, and is not a former CIA operative. She has, however, been madly, passionately in love with her soulmate and is a fervent believer in happily ever afters—which is why she writes romance. She grew up in southern California, graduated from Brigham Young University (go Cougars!) with a semi-useless degree in history, and is the oldest of nine (yes, nine) children. She currently lives with the aforementioned soulmate and their children in Utah, along with cats named Pixel, Callie, and Belle who do not get along. (The cats, not the children. Although the children sometimes have their issues, too.)
Sariah’s book ROYAL DATE was selected as one of the first winners in Amazon’s Kindle Scout program. Her novella ROYAL DESIGN helped launch Amazon Publishing’s Kindle in Motion technology, and she had her own Kindle World for THE ROYALS OF MONTERRA. Her books THE FRIEND ZONE and ROOMMAID were selected by Amazon as one of the Best Romances of 2019 and 2020, respectively. She has repeatedly hit Amazon’s overall Top 100 (both in and outside the USA) and been a #1 bestseller on Amazon category lists multiple times. Her book ROOMMAID was the most read book from Amazon’s website in September 2020.
Sariah is represented by Sarah E. Younger of the Nancy Yost Literary Agency.

Thanks for sharing your review. I wanted to read this one just based on the cover alone but wasn’t sure if it was clean or steamy romance. Now I’ll have to check it out for sure.
