Can you fall in love like they do in the movies?
It’s Evie Summers’s job to find out. Because if she can’t convince her film agency’s biggest client, Ezra Chester, to write the romantic-comedy screenplay he owes producers, her career will be over. The catch? He thinks rom-coms are unrealistic–and he’ll only put pen to paper if Evie shows him that it’s possible to meet a man in real life the way it happens on the big screen.
Cynical Evie might not believe in happily ever after, but she’ll do what it takes to save the job that’s been her lifeline . . . even if it means reenacting iconic rom-com scenes in public. Spilling orange juice on a cute stranger? No problem. Leaving her number in books all over London to see who calls? Done. With a little help from her well-meaning friends–and Ben and Anette, the adorable father-daughter duo who keep witnessing her humiliations–Evie is determined to prove she can meet a man the way Sally met Harry. But can a workaholic who’s given up on love find a meet-cute of her very own?
Evie is an assistant at a screenwriting agency. She’s tasked with convincing the agency’s biggest client, Ezra, to finish his script. The problem is that he’s writing a romantic comedy, and doesn’t believe them to be realistic. Evie’s job is to show him that meet-cutes can happen in real life. She works to set up various scenarios from popular rom-coms, renacts them, and reports the results to Ezra.
An enjoyable rom-com about rom-coms. Evie is stuck in her career, but she’s at a loss as how to improve things. Also, she’s single and not exactly looking for love when she’s tasked with staging the meet-cutes. Her friends hope she finds a guy though, and encourage her to keep doing the job.
A sweet and cute romance novel. A lighthearted read for fans of silly rather than steamy romance.
