Beach Read meets When Harry Met Sally in this vibrantly funny and endearingly sweet story of two lonely people who find love when they least expect it. A love letter to classic rom-com movies, and to anyone who has ever pined for the wrong person.
You know how the story’s supposed to go … but love makes its own plans.

Eli thinks he and his girlfriend, Victoria, are meant to be together – until she breaks up with him, leaving him heartbroken and confused. Determined to win her back, he goes along with the advice of his friends: become the sophisticated yet vulnerable ideal man. How? Study the best romantic heroes from everyone's favourite rom-com movies.
Leah is used to being alone, especially after taking care of her sick foster mother for the past year. And with no family or friends to keep her in town, she makes the decision to move. Again. But when she becomes inadvertently drawn into Eli’s makeover scheme, her plans are put on hold, and she ends up being Eli’s guide through the wild world of meet-cutes and grand gestures. Even though she believes Eli is perfect the way he is. Even though she just might be falling in love with him …

‘The perfect swoony, slow burn, sentimental romantic comedy ... I was absolutely swept off my feet by this delightfully witty romance between a complicated heroine and an idealistic hero. Movie references a huge bonus!’ Jenn McKinlay, author of Paris Is Always a Good Idea

I really loved the characters!! They were all so we'll written and likeable. They are definitely a bunch of characters that I'd love to read about again!! But I didn't enjoy the slow burn. Argh!!!! I just wanted them to get together quicker. It also lacked a bit of spice which could have made it an amazing read!!

Overall, this was such a sweet and chaming read that will give you all the feels!!! With a swoon worthy main character, it's the perfect summer beach read!!

Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read this book.

This book was delightfully funny. I found myself laughing out loud at parts of it, and I loved the pop culture references.

This book read like a romantic comedy movie, and I'd love to see it if it happened. I can picture certain actors as the characters and I think that helped a lot.

Thank you to Netgalley for an ARC for my honest review
