This was a cute story about a young woman trying to prove to her jerk of a client that love exists and it can happen in a meet cute. I really enjoyed this story, a lot actually. Rachel Winters clearly knows how a true romantic comedy is done.
I found myself eagerly waiting to find out what happened next and what new catastrophe would befall our heroine. We follow Evie, a 29 year old assistant in the movie business that was once in love with writing and has now relegated herself to supporting writers instead. And when her agency’s best writer (Ezra) isn’t turning in pages for a screenplay, she puts her job on the line to get him to do the work. You may be wondering, how so? By arranging meet cutes and then retelling the embarrassing stories via email to Ezra.
I did predict the twists, not mad about it, it is a rom com after all. I did find Evie to be a bit immature at points especially for someone her age. There was one specific moment that I can recall where I just felt like it was so out of place and out of character and was done more just for plot than because it was who she is. There was another scene with another character towards the end that felt very… out of sync with who they are as a person and I’m glad it was called out for being dumb and immature and wrong, but I would have preferred a different scenario.
Regardless, I really enjoyed this it was so cute and I just devoured it. Love the writing style, the touches of screenplay were *chef’s kiss* and felt super natural and inline with the story.
I’m so happy that I got the chance to read this! Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book!
