Too Good to Be Real
She plans to prove there's a dozen reasons why life isn't like a romantic comedy, only to discover the one reason it is…
While her friends wish for meet cutes worthy of their favorite rom-coms, Julia is ready to give up on love. Swiping right has replaced getting swept off your feet and good old-fashioned romance has become, well, old-fashioned.
A writer for a popular website, love becomes the last thing on her mind when impending layoffs threaten her job. As Julia searches for the ultimate pitch to impress her boss, she stumbles upon a resort offering guests a chance to live out their romantic comedy dreams. Real life dating is so bleak, who wouldn't want to spend a week in a fantasy rom-com world with your best friends?
At the resort, Julia literally falls into a not-quite-meet-cute involving an aggressive seagull and an adorably awkward guy named Luke who is also participating in the rom-com experience. Julia hides the fact she is there to do a story, but Luke harbors a few secrets of his own. Among further encounters with thieving seagulls, a gaggle of corgis, kisses in the rain, and even a karaoke serenade, their feelings deepen quickly. But could their love be real when they haven't been honest about their true identities? Once the fantasy is over, can they have a relationship in the real world?
I am a fan of author, Melonie Johnson. I read all of the books in her Sometimes in Love series. So, I was very excited to read this newest offering from Melonie. Too Good to Be Real is a fun, charming, and funny read.
Can there be such a thing as the "perfect rom-com"? That is what Luke is trying to plan. Only he can't tell the guess. Thus the predicament that he finds himself in with Julia. He has fallen for her. Yet, how will she react when she finds out he planned the whole resort's romantic adventure.
You can't plan the "perfect" romantic time as Luke and Julia learn. This book is a real feel good read that will have you smiling and wanting more.
