About the Book

They were co-writing literary darlings until they hit a plot hole that turned their lives upside down.

Three years have marked the calendar since Katrina Freeling and Nathan Van Huysen shone as the literary world's luminaries, their collaborative novels claiming the pinnacle of bestseller charts. Yet, following the apex of their shared success, a rift severed their partnership, the details of which remained tightly sealed from the public eye. Silence has spanned the gulf between them since that fallout, with no intentions of bridging it—except for the looming obligation of their final contracted book.

Now, at pivotal moments in both their personal journeys and career trajectories, circumstances conspire to bring them back together. The prospect they least anticipated becomes their reality: returning to the secluded Floridian enclave that bore witness to their previous collaborative efforts, tasked with the daunting goal of conjuring another hit from the remnants of their fractured bond. Delving into the heart of their mutual disdain over the last three years proves to be a formidable challenge, made no easier by the genre of their new project—a romance novel.

As the sultry Floridian climate envelops them, the intertwined forces of passion and creativity draw Katrina and Nathan inexorably closer. They're poised to discover that, much like the art of writing itself, navigating the complexities of relationships often requires enduring through several imperfect attempts before finding the formula that works.

I love everything in the box. I was so excited opening the goodies. Best box yet.

awesome book

this was my first OUABC book box and it was excellent. Loved the gifts and the story.


The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is due to not enjoying the book enough to finish it. I loved the gifts, and they fit the feel of the story perfectly. Part of the first gift is customized to reflect something specific in the story, which really adds to the overall experience. You can tell the gifts have been chosen by book lovers. I can’t wait for my next box!


So much fun

So fun!

This was only my second box, and I kept seeing it as an ad and thought I should really dive into it. This was such a fun box! The first gift came super early, and I felt that all of them were on-point and perfect both for the book and book lovers.

Book Clubber Testimonials


I love Once Upon a Book Club. Each month offers a book with a collection of gifts that bring the words on the pages to life. My collection is growing and I even had to purchased new book shelves. I love the boxes!

Once Upon a Book Club is a reader’s delight. The concept of this book box is so unique, it combines your love of reading with the joy opening presents.

The gifts truly bring the story to life and perfectly match what’s happening in the story. For example-the main character might have gotten a bracelet from her best friend in the story. And then you get that bracelet as a gift! It’s so fun because it’s an immersive experience.
