Emily Donovan doesn’t have a romantic bone in her body. At least, that’s what her friends Ryan and Ashley keep telling her. They’re convinced her bad luck with men is directly related to her life-long lack of interest in all things romantic. When Emily’s latest relationship crashes and burns, she decides to go along with her friends’ plans for a romance research project. Sure, the idea that she’ll have better luck if she learns about the great romances of literature and film seems a little silly, but Emily figures it can’t hurt. In no time at all, Emily finds herself buried under a mountain of romance novels, chick flicks, and sappy love songs, hopeful that her hard work will pay off with true love. When she meets Greg, Ashley and Ryan are convinced she’s found prince charming—after all, he’s rich, handsome, and totally into Emily. What more could she want? And why does it seem that her friend Elliot isn’t exactly happy for her? Faced with misunderstandings, miscommunications, and a seemingly endless string of missteps, she is nevertheless determined to give true love a try. In doing so, Emily will eventually find that true romance, the kind that lasts, has little to do with stereotypes or clichés, and everything to do with finding out what’s in her own heart. ~Goodreads
I was excited about being part of this book tour. I’ve always been a romantic at heart and although I do love to read other books there are times when I just want to read a sweet romantic story. This is what I found in this story.
This was a short and sweet read for me. Emily was a great main character whose had some bad luck in romance and she’s starting to think that maybe she’s got some bad luck or she’s looking for the wrong things. This is where her friends step in with their crazy romantic notions and antics and decide that the reason she hasn’t any luck is because she know nothing about romance. This leads to lots of laugh and ridiculousness. What I liked most about the story is that the author did a great job of creating so many memorable characters, Emily’s group of friends right down to the seniors that she looks after all added to the story for me.
The story was well written, as with most romance books the ending was predictable in the way it played out but, that’s why I read books in this genre because I love the happily ever after’s. Would I recommend this book to friends? Yes! It was a great read with lots of laughs and great characters. I would give it 4 Stars.
After I finished reading this book, I realized that there are two more books in the same world as this one but they are different characters stories. You should definitely check it out.
