"...I f*cking like it! If this is what you called as 'mindfuck' genre, I am totally in love with these kinds of romance novel." - Iem, Goodreads. 

"It's inevitable that Nuril is a gifted writer... The main character in the story appears as a messy person who longs for love, in the end, he's someone that we never thought of..." - Fey Bahram, Goodreads.

ROMANTIS
Malaysian language, 271p, Buku Fixi, 2015
Synopsis:
“Kekasihmu orang kaya?” tanyaku.
“Hmh, tidak juga sebenarnya, tapi dia tidak kekurangan duit,” jawab Poppy. Tentu saja dia dapat mendapatkan lelaki yang kaya dan gagah. Dia sangat cantik.

“Terus kenapa mau selingkuh denganku?”

“Maksudnya kamu mau?” tanyanya retorik. “Sebab aku belum pernah ada kekasih penulis. Katanya penulis itu romantis.”

“Tapi aku tidak ada duit,” kataku datar.

“Tidak apa-apa. Kamu kan dapat membuatkanku surat cinta atau puisi cinta. Aku belum pernah mendapatkan yang seperti itu dari kekasih-kekasihku yang lalu.”

Benar, di dunia ini tidak ada yang percuma. Setiap gadis yang dekat denganmu, mereka pasti ada maunya. 

“Okay,” jawabku singkat. “Aku fikir-fikir dulu.”
