Poetic Contemporaries

Jennifer Cox loves witty romance.

A steamy, poetic romcom, Word on the Street is an enemies-to-lovers romance of 93,000 words inspired by the beloved 90’s movie Reality Bites.

Fantastic word play, a found family, podcast meetings, a surprise mixtape, and an insightful tarot reading create magic in this book.

Jennifer was a finalist in the Fiction from the Heartland Romance Competition.

Jennifer is represented by Stefanie Rossitto at The Tobias Literary Agency.

She didn’t think she’d ever have to meet him, much less sit across from him monthly. But when her agent pushes her to challenge him on a new yearlong podcast about relationships, she reluctantly agrees.

Is he as terrible as this academic feminist has made him seem? C’mon, of course not! He was simply providing interesting content; she’s the awful one! Now if he could only shake her voice that’s stuck in his head.
