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?… (més)

If you are a fan of rom-com films, this is the book for you. I mean, our heroine attempts to re-make all of my favorite meet-cutes? What could go wrong? (Answer - everything, basically.)

I'm not going to lie - I figured out the real romantic interest early on AND I knew what was going to happen with Ezra, her uncooperative screenwriter - I am a rom-com junkie, after all - and I didn't care. Evie's meet-cutes were so hilariously disastrous, Anette was so delightful, Ben made the perfect straight-man, grounding element in the book.

Evie has her flaws - she's so focused on the task at hand that she makes it all about her, to the detriment of her friendships. I could overlook it because she is not some superstar agent who has trampled people to get to the top - she's an underdog through it all.

This was a light, fast, entertaining read - just what I needed when I picked it up. ( )

It's a British rom-com in a book! If you need a light-hearted and easy-read book to fill your self-quarantine day, I recommend reading this one. It's very comedic and witty, with a good portion of cheesiness (well every rom-com has it). Reading the synopsis, I can agree that the protagonist is cynical indeed, and I relate to that part so much. I am also very interested in the world of screenwriting in Hollywood. And this book depicts the struggle of being in that world as a woman. ( )

This book was... ok. Fun idea, but not great.

Evie is an assistant to a screenwriters' agent and herself a former aspiring screenwriter. With the vague promise of a long-overdue promotion, her boss convinces her to take on the task of cajoling a one-hit-wonder screenwriter to finally write the romcom he's been under contract to write for some time. Evie and I-think-his-name's-Ezra-but-I've-already-forgotten come to an agreement wherein, to show him the power of the romcom, Evie will act out the meet-cutes from various famous romcom movies and attempt to find true love while doing so.

The setup with the various meet-cutes was, I though, pretty creative, and the stories of Evie's various disastrous attempts to find true love via meet-cute were pretty funny. At the same time, though, the overall "serious" plot of the book is entirely predictable--well beyond the usual predictability of the romcom genre. A quick and reasonably enjoyable read, but absolutely zero suspense. Also, this book really, really pushed suspension of disbelief in some ways--for example, I found it virtually impossible to believe that a seven-year-old would ever act or talk like one of the book's supporting characters did.

Overall Opinion:
I wanted to like this. I really did but for whatever reason it just fell flat. It was missing that spark to really connected me with the storyline and toward half way through the book, I found myself skimming far more pages than I would've liked too. Besides Ben, Anette, and Evie friends I was not a big fan Evie or Erza (for obvious reasons) nor did I like how Erza story concluded. I don't know, but it was just blah. You know? This novel had so much potential that I am somewhat disappointed with the end result.
