The reality TV star wrote the book with American author Nadine Gonzalez and found having a co-writer particularly helpful for the erotic scenes.
“We needed a minimum of two sexy scenes, which I didn’t like at first, but that’s part of the romance, right? It was a bit awkward but I’m glad to have a co -scriptwriter.
“You can really get lost and create your own images. The book isn’t very explicit, it’s more about what we’re alluding to,” she added.
