What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "In this irresistible
romantic romp, movie fanatic Kensington Shaw is thrown into
love—Hollywood-style—when her gorgeous ex presents a series of big
screen challenges to win back her heart.
What girl wouldn’t want to experience the Pretty Woman shopping scene? It’s number two on the list. Or, try the lift from Dirty Dancing?
It’s number five. One list, ten romantic movie moments, and a handful
of shenanigans later, Kenzi has to wonder . . . should she marry the man
her family loves, or risk everything for a love like the movies?"
My Two Cents:
you're looking for a book that gives you the warm fuzzies and you love
romantic comedies, then this is the book for you. This book was really
adorable and I know that it is one that I'm going to want to go back to
again in the future. Kenzi isn't sure she wants what she has. She
finally has a fiance that her family approves of but she isn't sure if
she is just settling. When Shane, a guy who she dated for a very long
time who subsequently cheated on her after college, reappears in her
life, it only reiterates that Kenzi might just be settling. She starts
working with Shane, who is trying to develop a restaurant/ theater based
on romantic movies (movies that Kenzi loves) and craziness ensues. In
order to get her vision for Shane's business, Shane makes Kenzi work
through a list of her favorite romantic comedies and they have to
recreate scenes from each of the movies. This is a truly fun book!
was a fantastic romantic heroine. I fell for her so quickly. She felt
really real to me and she was so endearing. All she wanted to do was to
be able to find happiness on her own terms. It's hard to encapsulate
everything that happened to her in this book because there is just so
much but I really liked reading about how she grew throughout the book.
love a good romantic comedy and this story was one in book form. I
loved this cute story so much! It's funny and ridiculous and crazy and
truly a treat for readers. This is the kind of book that you read when
you want to laugh and cry. A mark of a really good book for me is one
that will make me cry. It's quite hard to do! The ending of this book
was so ridiculously cute that I cried! This is a great pick for when
you're looking for a book to simply get lost in!
