The Hero(es): Noah Douglas - An A-list movie star that is in the running for many of the major awards during the current award season. He has been an actor since he was a child and spent most of his years growing up on a TV show that was eerily similar to Saved by the Bell. Then he joined the military for a few years and returned and transitioned to doing movies. He was recently in a hugely popular trilogy called Duel of the Fae. The Story: Juliet had a major crush on Noah throughout her teenage years, but when she meets him at the awards show, he is arrogant and condescending so she pretends not to know who Noah is. Noah is immediately intrigued by this girl in a fancy dress and pink converse high tops who is snarky and unimpressed by him. I really enjoyed this story it was a clean romance with a lot of steam. Juliet had a very bad experience when she was young and has a very real fear of kissing. It is so bad that the few times she tried she has experienced panic attacks. So Noah offers to help Juliet with her problem and it leads to some pretty steamy kissing scenes. The narrator is terrific. This is told by the heroine’s POV, so there is only a female narrator, but she has a great voice which fits Juliet perfectly, she has just the right amount of innocence and sass. She also did the male voice perfectly with a deep enough voice to make it sound great. This was a great book to listen to via audiobook! Blog|Goodreads|Facebook|Instagram|Twitter|BookBub

    I’ll say more later cause I read this in the car (and I’m still here), but this was yikes city even before I got to the acknowledgements. I felt gross as a (definitely casual compared to this) Adam driver fan reading this cause it was just - the character read nothing like him but all the factoids were him. Way too weird. And then I found out mid read that the author compared her son’s autism diagnosis to a terminal illness and :/ Basically this is a self-insert Adam Driver romance and I feel so I’ll say more later cause I read this in the car (and I’m still here), but this was yikes city even before I got to the acknowledgements.

And then I found out mid read that the author compared her son’s autism diagnosis to a terminal illness and :/ Basically this is a self-insert Adam Driver romance and I feel so uncomfortable. I know tidbits about his upbringing and military history from interviews and seeing it all here, only with names changed and the tiniest of details edited, made me physically recoil. This isn’t a fiction book, this is a daydream about a real man and I don’t think it should have been published. A few similarities here or there? Fine. But when there’s an entire twitter thread exploring the MANY ways this book crosses the line, it just becomes disgusting and creepy to me. Not to mention the fucking ACKNOWLEDGMENTS- Adam honey get a restraining order please this is too MUCH. The writing was bad with too much weight placed on simply telling the reader what’s in front of them and no focus placed on the prose sounding like anything other than a google translation of travel directions. The romance was weird and awkward- I couldn’t buy the chemistry at all, even separated from the complete absurdity of the character. Which, to comment on the writing, this guy acts nothing like Adam or a character of his I’ve seen (at this point is that a good thing? Iunno I want nothing to do with the self insert aspect). It’s just that for a book literally ripping off his life, he acts like some random dude with no vibes of the actual man at all. Probably because the author met him for 5 seconds at an award show and that’s it. I gotta stop talking about this but yeah - the author said ridiculously ableist things and made her son’s autism all about her, she wrote a creepy ass book that makes me glad Adam driver has a security team, and it’s not even a good book. Twitter thread here that I showed my friends when I couldn’t explain the book well enough myself: https://twitter.com/bensreys/status/1...

I can't even form words, I just want to go and read the book again. Loved the storyline, loved the characters, loved all the swoony, and I mean S.W.O.O.N.Y. kisses! Did I mention the swoony kisses? But seriously, the love story is so great. Noah and Juliet have great chemistry, fun banter and a genuine connection.

The Seat Filler is about a dog groomer who while helping out her friend, ends up as a seat filler at an award show and happens to sit next to her celebrity crush. Pretending she doesn't know who he is, she plays uninterested while he becomes more interested. Soon they start a creepy ass romance. I could give a better blurb but honestly fuck this book. This is the author's published self-insert fanfiction where she falls in love with the actor Adam Driver and it's disturbing to say the least. She takes literally every public known fact about him, even his trauma and uses it. The author doesn't even hide this fact and she's absolutely unhinged. The acknowledgements are even worse and I swear to god Adam Driver needs a restraining order from this woman. There are actors that I love too but this level is "break into your house and hide in your closet" level not... watch every thing they are in and retweet memes about them level. There are lines we should have as fans and this woman not only crossed it, she back flipped over that and is proud to be this crazed stalker??? This is a grown woman, MARRIED and she does this shit?? There is no rational explanation, this is just fucking weird. Actors are real people and the thought of ever making an actor I admire uncomfortable breaks my heart. I could never do this to them like imagine if Adam Driver ever saw this? I just know in this nutjob's head she's like omg Adam would find this ROMANTIC and he would instantly leave his wife for me!!! Sorry sis but that isn't happening and I hope he gets that restraining order asap. Literally in this book the character gets exposed as being a fan of the actor guy and he literally finds it romantic. Do you smell something yes that's me I puked because of how gross I find this all. As for the book and romance itself, it wasn't good. It felt like a parody and yet it was dead serious. The romance made no sense and was so awkward. They had no chemistry and yet kept ending up together at every moment. Every conversation they had I was just cringing at how fanfictiony it really was?? Like you could at least try to make this not suck but okay. I really spent most of the book just cringing and feeling really uncomfortable that such a book exists. The writing was SO bad and all of the dialogue was nails on a chalkboard. The MC (idk her name, but it's probably Sariah) was so annoying oh my god I just wanted to fight her. She acts so quirky about eating her snickers and watching tv like ??? What kind of dumb shit is this she's an adult and so many people are like this you don't have to be so quirky, weird, and make your entire personality around how you like chocolate. To top off how fucked this author is- she also recently made ableist comments about her son's autism like can we just throw the whole person away?

The whole cast of characters is perfect for this story and meshed together in an amazing way that drew me right in and didn't let me go--I think this book must be laced with something addictive because I'm feeling a book hangover right about now. This is hands-down one of the swooniest romances I've ever read. The connection between Noah and Juliet, and the super dreamy kisses, kept me up way too late and left me floating for a long time afterward. The Seat Filler is definitely a book that deserves to be re-read and I can't wait to enjoy it all over again. Content: mild+ romance (swoony kissing, light innuendo) *I received a complimentary copy through Netgalley. All opinions expressed are my own and were voluntarily given.*

    The Seat Filler by Sariah Wilson is an adult romance set in the beautiful and lively city of Los Angeles (LA), we see our main characters Juliet Nolan, a dog groomer who runs her own company.

She pretends she does not know him and hence starts a slow burn romance. I really really liked the author's narrative style and the book is definitely promising. Hooked from pretty much the first pages, I liked it alot. The concept of dog groomed and Noah's dog - Magnus was practically an add-on for the perfect plot. If you are a romance lover like me you would definitely enjoy this book keeping in mind the perfect plot and good writing style of the author. ___ Thank You NetGalley and Publisher for the copy!

    I had so many expectations for this book when I first heard about it. It's such a cute concept! Who wouldn't swoon over meeting their favorite actor in a meet-cute scenario like this one? Not to mention, the cover is really cute! But the actual book? Not so cute. The first warning that this book was going be bad on an epic level should have been the acknowledgements at the back of "The Seat Filler."

Who wouldn't swoon over meeting their favorite actor in a meet-cute scenario like this one? Not to mention, the cover is really cute! But the actual book? Not so cute. The first warning that this book was going be bad on an epic level should have been the acknowledgements at the back of "The Seat Filler." I always read them, because I'm nosey and I like knowing who authors credit with the success of their work. After reading that, my heart sank. I almost put the book down. It's perfectly normal to be inspired by the performers we love or the shows we watch, but to so blatantly and uncomfortably fangirl over Adam Driver? In the acknowledgements? Yikes. I kind of wish I had taken a shot for every time he was mentioned because I could have at least been drunk while I read this. "The Seat Filler" feels like it could have been written in the early 2000s. Between the "never been kissed, tragic virgin backstory" that sets feminism back three decades, the blatant fatphobia peppered throughout the dialogue, and the cringey and shallow characters, I genuinely do not know what modern publisher would publish something like this. Then again, we have seen plenty of progressive publishers chomping at the bit to publish the likes of Kellyanne Conway and Mike Pence recently, so I guess I shouldn't really be that surprised. Back to the book. If I were Adam Driver, I'd be looking over my shoulder. Sariah Wilson's self-insert makes a few cracks about stalkers in "The Seat Filler" and I'm wondering if she was telling on herself. The level to which this book rips off exact replicas of Star Wars, Rian Johnson, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, and Joaquin Phoenix is alarming. "Duel of the Faes"? Wasn't the original title of the last film "Duel of the Fates"? I genuinely do not understand the ratings that this book has garnered on here. It's bad and not even in an endearing way. "Twilight" was bad, but at least we could all smile and nod and enjoy most of it. This is just badly written self-insert fanfic that could easily prompt Adam Driver to get a restraining order against the author. TLDR;; "The Seat Filler" is a 50-year old (*cough* stalker *cough*) fangirl's fever dream. If morbid curiosity hadn't gotten the best of me, this would have been a do not finish at: "Nice shoes, Cinderella."

Juliet was such an enjoyable heroine. She doesn't date. But she ends up at an award show. Noah is a movie star. I really enjoyed everything about him. And I loved everything in the story to do with dogs. There were some really fun and surprising developments in this book. But honestly I do not think that I would have enjoyed this book as much as I did if I had read the book blurb prior to reading the book (it gives away too much). Overall, when rating a book I think about how much the book made me feel. And I'm honestly very surprised how emotional this book was. It made me feel so much. I would definitely recommend this book. Thanks to netgalley and Montlake romance for allowing me to read this book.

I don’t know how she does it, but I bow to the queen of steam in closed-door romance books! It’s my favorite read of the year, and you need it in your life. The characters were so endearing and the premise was beyond fun! And now I have alllllll the heart eyes for Noah! Out April 27! Thank you for this ARC, Sariah! ❤️

I had no expectations and went into this book blind, drawn in by the cover and title alone. This book was absolutely adorable, with characters I quickly loved and banter that was hilarious. The premise is a little weird but completely unique, which is something I’m always craving in the rom-com genre. The entire story is unexpected and funny, and parts had me laughing out loud. I will admit that I haven’t seen the movie with the same title, so I can’t attest to if similar themes are shared between the two. But overall, I am so pleased I found this book and read it in a single sitting. Recommend for anyone looking for a quick, quirky, heartwarming read.

    I stayed up way too late to finish this book but I regret nothing and may have to go back and reread at a slower pace. Not because I missed anything but because the romance had all the feels, I genuinely laughed out loud (and highlighted the parts that made me laugh), and it simply made me smile. *I received a complimentary copy from publisher via NetGalley.

But when I learned that it was available on NetGalley, I immediately went to the site. And luckily, I got an ARC! Yay! The Seat Filler is one of the best books I’ve read this year!!

I loved the slow build from strangers to friends to lovers, and somehow this author has again made a "clean" book simmer with sexual tension. This hero is almost too good to be true, and I loved his kindness, patience, and single-minded focus. Our heroine makes a somewhat unreliable narrator, but it's so easy to see our hero falling head over heels. From the meet cute to the HEA, these two are absolutely ADORABLE together. And any reservations I had about that blurb evaporated as the intimacy between them grew. The story follows Juliet, a 24-year-old woman who has never really been kissed. After a traumatic "7 minutes in Heaven" during her teenage years and the disastrous events that followed, she associates kissing and relationships with anxiety and fear. So when she meets Noah, a Hollywood heartthrob and the former child actor who starred in her teenage dreams... she's not as starstruck as she probably should be. While filling in as a seat filler at an awards show, Noah and Juliet strike up a conversation that leaves the actor wanting more. And as they continue running into each other - and Juliet keeps rejecting Noah - they form a connection that starts to feel a lot like friendship with the hint of something more. I'll openly admit that I was a little hesitant about this blurb, though still very much interested in the story. I typically love her writing, so I dove right in - and do not regret it! This was a low angst delight with the kind of slow burn romance I love; it's about friendship first, with subtle hints of more throughout. There's no real "steam," but it's a sexy book with a whole lot of kissing, and the chemistry was definitely there. And even though we never get Noah's perspective, I felt like I knew exactly what he was thinking along the way... even if Juliet didn't. Noah is what makes this book what it is; he's patient and loving throughout, entirely respectful of Juliet's anxiety, and consistently a genuinely good human being. I loved him so much. There were maybe one or two moments when this was a little too sugary sweet, but you know what? I'm not complaining. It was exactly what I was in the mood for, and just a charming, compelling read. I received an early copy and am voluntarily leaving a review of this Hollywood romance.

Juliet is a bit of a spitfire but I love her personality. She was very fun and some of her internal thoughts (and let's be honest a lot of her vocal thoughts) had me laughing out loud a lot of the book. Especially when she was saying things out loud that she thought were just her thoughts. Hahaha! That was a funny scene. I could just imagine Noah standing there smirking and trying not to laugh too hard. The book is told only from Juliet's POV. Which works great and keeps Noah as a brooding character until she really starts to get to know him. And boy do they break down those barriers fast. I really liked the way that their characters meshed together and had this great friend connection. Of course there are sparks and great chemistry as well but with Juliet's fear of kissing and her history she's very protective of her heart and draws the friend line very firmly. I kept waiting for some big hoorah to happen that would big the conflict of the book but it didn't quite come like I thought it would. There is a conflict and something that happens in the beginning that carries throughout the whole book and makes Juliet worried about what will happen with their relationship when it's revealed. It worked but to me it felt like Noah's reaction was a little bigger than what I would have thought. And maybe that's not the right way to describe it. There was just something that felt a little off for me. But I'm sure other readers will probably enjoy it. And I should clarify that I did like it. I can see and understand both Juliet and Noah's reasons behind everything, maybe it was just what I said that I felt his reaction was bigger than I expected. Overall it was a cute story. Fun, flirty and a cute premise. Content: Sariah Wilson can write characters with great chemistry like nobody's business. This book didn't dive into the characters having sex with each other but the steam level is definitely a few steps above squeaky clean. The premise is about a character who has a kissing phobia and these two dive into helping her overcome that with practice. So there are several scenes of kissing and flirting and touching. The touching is just on the arms and neck and face, etc. The kissing does turn intense and there are a couple make out scenes. At one point near the end of the book, Noah does remove his shirt as they kiss and the kissing becomes more intense and Juliet's thoughts are that she doesn't mind what happens if they keep kissing like this, but they are interrupted with a phone call. At another point in the story the characters sleep in the same bed, no kissing or anything, just sleeping. The characters also drink alcohol and talk about not drinking too much because of becoming drunk and without inhibitions. I received a copy from the publisher, Montlake, via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own. Happy Reading!!!

    DNF at 40%. It just feels childish. Immature. If the characters had been in hs, may have been acceptable but it feels like this author just wrote a fanfic to pair herself with a celebrity. 19 year old me would have loved it. But the much older me just rolled my eyes through most of it. Edit to add: Just heard this was a fanfic written about Adam Driver. Yuck. No wonder I didn’t like it.

    Holy up too late holy book hangover! I thought I'd read a few chapters before bed, but I should have known it was a mistake to try that with one of Sariah's books. Noah and Juliet's story grabbed ahold of me and wouldn't let me go until the sweet happy ending! I won't go into all the plot -- there's tons of other reviewers who will do that -- but I do want to take a minute to say that the way Sariah writes a kissing scene is an art all of it's own.

She brings the right amount of chemistry and heat into it without going too far. Another reader commented that just reading about Noah and Juliet's kiss took her breath away. I agree! Of course, there's lots of relationship challenges and growth along the way that make this a touching story with lots of character development that will make you want to know more after the final pages are done. The end of a good book should always be like saying goodbye to a friend. (And... Noah can be my friend any time!)

And, unlike the ending to the famous movie, this one has a happily ever after finish! I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and chose to leave an honest review. I definitely recommend this book.

If you're looking for a story that will make your heart happy, have a fabulous romance and the most wonderful happily ever after then this is your book! This was my first time reading anything by Sariah Wilson, and I'm definitely looking forward to devouring her backlist! Noah still wore his smirk and he was just...staring at me. Like he was trying to memorize my facial features for the police report he probably planned on filing. The first chapter alone was so much fun, I was hooked right away! Juliet Nolan was helping her best friend, Shelby, be a seat filler at an awards show. And who was Juliet placed next to? None other than the Noah Douglas. Noah was a movie star who she had followed and been obsessed with since she was a kid. But their first interactions went a little off kilter, so Juliet pretended to have no clue who Noah was. With the banter between them so seamless, this book had one of the most hilarious meet cutes I've ever read! I actually pressed my phone to my chest, squealed, and spun around. I never thought this would happen to me, and not even in my wildest daydreams did I ever imagine that it would be with Noah Douglas. Juliet was someone I wanted to be friends with! She was absolutely hilarious and I loved her thoughts! Whether it was her interactions with Noah, to her friendship with Shelby, to even her passion working as a dog groomer, there was so much to love about Juliet! And once we got a little further into the story, we got to see her struggles. I've never heard about someone who was extremely fearful of being kissed, but her description of the panic afterwards reminded me so much of my own panic attacks during certain medical procedures. My heart felt a kinship and hurt for her. So I was keeping my fingers crossed that Noah and Juliet would work out. Because while there was definitely a spark between them, could a dog groomer and a movie star truly work? "You are one dirty boy," I told him. "I am," Noah agreed as he brushed some soil off his pants. My cheeks flushed and I said, "I was talking to your dog." "I know." Then he winked at me and all the blood drained from my brain. Noah Douglas was charming, sweet, caring and swoon worthy! I loved that he was down to earth, hardworking, and such a good man. He snagged me from that very first chapter and the more we got to learn about Noah, the harder I fell for him. Even though he was Hollywood royalty, I loved how much he loved his dog, wasn't superficial and had such a good heart. And when Noah learned about Juliet's kissing phobia, the care he took towards that situation, he continued to melt my heart! Plus I loved every moment he was around Juliet, especially since you could feel the chemistry. But happily ever afters aren't always easy, so I kept my fingers crossed that they would eventually get theirs. It was so deserved! He wrapped his long fingers around my wrist and pulled my hand to his chest, placing it over his heart. It was beating fast. "You're not the only one affected." Romance lovers will enjoy how easy it is to devour The Seat Filler! I laughed and smiled through the beginning, my heart got pulled in different ways through the middle and the end had the most wonderful happily ever afters! If you're a fan of adult romance that is sweet and fun, then definitely add this one to your list! *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book, provided by the publisher.

    Did you know fear of kissing is a legitimate fear? This premise was so unique I had to see what it was about. Juliet is 24 and she’s never really been kissed. After a traumatic experience in her youth she’s pushed men away and refuses to get into a relationship that would lead to any kind of lip locking. When she meets the man of her dreams, dreamy super star Noah Douglas...they hit it off but can she overcome her phobia? This was freaking adorable!

When she meets the man of her dreams, dreamy super star Noah Douglas...they hit it off but can she overcome her phobia? This was freaking adorable! I was hooked from the first “meet cute” which is literally the best. Noah is so sweet, and so down right patient with Juliet’s fears — it really makes him so endearing. I was a big Noah fan from his cheesy one liners to his late night cereal habit. Also I have to put it out there. I definitely feel like he was patterned after real life Adam Driver? Anyone else pick up on that vibe...because I was down for it. Juliet and Noah have sizzling chemistry as they “practice” kissing and warming Juliet up to the idea of that kind of physical relationship. It’s adorable and electric and downright addictive. If you are looking for your next summer rom com, make this it! 4.5 stars *clean content overall, although the push for more is insinuated ♥️
