    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestYou know, I took one look at that cover and thought, Hmm, gee, this looks a lot like THE KISS QUOTIENT and THE HATING GAME I thought it might just be me, but it looks like someone on Goodreads actually went ahead and compiled a list of all these pastel book covers with cartoonish characters on the front, so I feel totes validated NotAllBookCovers InvasionOfTheChicklitChicklit was my gateway into the romance genre, so you could say that I have a real soft spot for it For a few years, though, it seemed to go out of fashion, but now it s back with a vengeance and I m so glad especially since a lot of the recent offerings are much empowering than some of the overworked underpaid self hating women characters that graced many a page in the early noughties, along with way too many cocktail drinks and a ring of supportive girlfriends including sigh the obligatory gay bff My, how far we ve come On the surface, WOULD LIKE TO MEET is pretty similar to its early noughtiess forebears Evie is overworked and underpaid She works as an assistant to an ungrateful and comically incompetent agent and his childish and irresponsible author, Ezra, who Evie has nicknamed N.O.B number one boychild She has a supportive group of girlfriends, including, sigh the obligatory gay bff, and there are several scenes involving cocktails, something called a hen do which I guess is a bachelorette party in Brit speak , and, of course, a wedding What sets this book aside from the rest is a little something called self awareness The concept really allows the book to wink at the audience while acknowledging certain tropes as toxic You see, Ezra N.O.B is supposed to write a rom com, and Evie s totally chaotic dating life has inspired him if she sends him IRL meet cutes to prove that love at first sight is real, he will agree to work in earnest and stop flaking Evie agrees and proceeds to copy the oh so quirky and oh so coincidental meet cutes from various famous rom coms, with disastrous results.Evie s group of friends is developed than a lot of the cast of friends I ve read about historically Each of them have their own personalities, and they call Evie out when she acts irresponsibly something that will appeal to readers frustrated with authors like Sophie Kinsella, whose heroines act in super psychologically dysfunctional ways and are never called out on it in earnest And her gay BFF actually gets to have a personality and problems of his own, and isn t reduced to a stereotype So you know what, okay book, I see you I also adored one of the friends she makes at a soured meet cute that involves spilled protein drink and projectile vomiting Ben and his young daughter Annette are great characters, and end up becoming the peanut gallery at many of Evie s ill conceived schemes, as well as her biggest cheerleaders when the going gets rough.I ll be the first to admit that the concept is totally outlandish and not at all plausible, but it was so much fun I didn t care It s been a while since I read a romance that told me it would be a total laff riot note not the actual words and ACTUALLY DELIVERED I laughed so many times while reading this book I actually started cackling in the middle of the night at 3AM and then had to try to calm myself down while looking around guiltily to make sure I hadn t woken anyone else up Evie is such a great character and you find yourself buying into her adventures, while rooting for her to find success and or a happy ending It s never completely obvious who she s going to end up with, and the author deliciously turns a lot of tropes on their heads in her attempt to show that a happy ending isn t always enough if you don t feel validated for being who you are and doing what you love.This is one of the best chicklit books I ve read recently and I can t wait for you all to read it, too Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 4 to 4.5 stars

    A cute, funny and entertaining British Rom com with a great concept So here I go again on my quest to seemingly read every romance with this new quirky type of cover lol Honestly, did the same illustrator design them all Anyway Evie Summers, a long suffering and downtrodden assistant to an awful agent Monty and his annoying screenplay writer Ezra NOB or Number One Boychild has to recreate romcom meet cutes to meet the perfect man, in order to inspire NOB to write a great romcom If she fails to get NOB past his writer s block, then the agency will go under, and she will lose her job.Cue lots of second hand embarrassment and laughs Evie literally took meet cutes from famous romcoms and recreated them to see if they would work in real life, with pretty hilarious results It had every romcom clich in, and plenty of OMG moments Evie was a bit of a disaster, and I couldn t help but like her and laugh along at her antics, even if they were highly unrealistic and unbelievable You kind of just have to go with the flow with this dramatic story Some of the situations she got herself intoI liked Evie s friendship group, who had been friends for years, but were all in different stages of their lives, as well as different parts of the country Even though her friends included the typical gay bf included in romcoms, her friendships felt real, and I did relate to what they were going through It is so hard to maintain old friendships when you live far away, have busy jobs and or children, and my old school friends and I also use a group chat to keep in touch like they did here with hilarious results I liked how her friends had their own things going on, and that they called her out on some of her ridiculous behaviour because that is what real friends do Evie was definitely not the greatest friend in thisbut she did realise this, so I couldn t help liking her and rooting for her Saying that, I did really feel for Sarah, I mean Evie certainly made an impact on her friend s hen do and wedding I liked that this had a positive message on self discovery and self worth, as well as the inclusion of a deaf girl I appreciated the discussions on dealing with the loss of a loved one, and how different people grieve too, and I thought this was done well I also get really excited when a book is set in the UK, and I know the places that they talk about, in this case London and Sheffield This book wasn t that heavy on British slang I don t think, but FYI a hen do is a bachelorette party I did like Ben and Anette, a man and his daughter, whom Evie befriends in a coffee shop They supported her when she needed it, and were generally really cute I did however have a problem with Anette s age This isn t the first or last time I will have mentioned this, but it really irks me when a child is written older than they are Anette was meant to be 7I have a year old, teach plenty of them, and have spent time around my 7 year old s friends This character was far too self aware, mature and wise I thought she came across as about 12 13 at the very least When she was revealed to be 7, I was like wtf No one else has mentioned this in their reviews, so it s obviously just a me thing, but it really bugged me As I said, this was a lot of fun It was definitely chick lit than romance though It was actually very light on romance and there were no steamy scenes unless you count Jane, Evie s flatmate parading her lover and leaving vibrators in the dishwasher and bathroom It was sweet, and reminds me of the chick lit I used to read when I was younger I can definitely imagine this as a film.However, the plot was quite predictable to me in terms of both the plot and the love interest, and I felt that all of the drama did overshadow the romance part of this It wasn t the main part of this book, and I wasn t really invested in it There wasn t much chemistry at all, and it felt a little flat This was a definite 3 star read for me, because although it was hilarious, and I enjoyed it, it just didn t have that extra something that I needed If you re looking for a funny, light and really entertaining read though, and are a fan of Sophie Kinsella type chick lit, then you should definitely read this Many thanks to Edelweiss for making this available as a download

    3.5 starsCan you believe it I finally liked a romance again after what feels like a never ending post Helen Hoang search The interesting thing is it seems I liked it because 1 Would Like to Meet isn t actually a romance, it s a true romcom, so I didn t have to read the usual story with two protagonists moaning and angsting and lusting over each other for 400 pages.2 it was written by a U.K author who is quite funny humor is something I find seriously lacking in American books.This romcom is pretty meta in the best possible way A screenwriter agent s assistant is forced to reenact various romcom meet cute scenarios and report back her experiences to an asshole type screenwriter with a writing block to jump start his creativity and inspire him to write a good romcom It gets even meta once you get to the end of the story.The focus on work and creative process and friendship is what I liked about Would Like to Meet The dialog is funny and I truly hope this novel does get made into a movie I am wondering if I would have given this book a higher rating had I not read it during a busy slumpy week I couldn t quite get the momentum going Maybe the book needed to slim down a bit and be a little joke dense and double down on the disastrous meet cutes Still, the novel has a Bridget Jones like potential in it, IMO.

    Meet Cute taken from the dictionary noun1 in a film or television show an amusing or charming first encounter between two characters that leads to the development of a romantic relationship between them it all started with a little meet cute in a hospital elevator verb1 of two characters in a film or television show have an amusing or charming first encounter that leads to the development of a romantic relationship he meets cute with a cynical actress Can you fall in love in real life as couples do in the movies That is what Evie wants to find out NO, she needs to find this out to convince a screenwriter to follow through and write that ROMCOM her has been paid to write Evie has been an assistant for far too long It s almost a joke heck it is a joke amongst her peers So, she attempts to fall in love through various meet cute situations.Here friends are there to help and their back and forth banter can be read Evie has also befriended a father daughter duo, Ben and Annette who have witnessed a meet cute gone bad Can Evie meet the man of her dreams, convince a screenwriter to write that movie already, save her job and save her dignity This was a fun rom com that follows Evie as she attempts to have meet cutes inspired by famous Hollywood Movies and see if they work in real life It was nice to see Evie grow as a person and get to know Ben and Annette better Little Annette stole the show, or shall I say book for me This is a light fun book There are no steamy or gratuitous scenes so most readers will find this book enjoyable It s predictable but that took nothing away from my enjoyment This is a great book to turn to when you want a lighter read I also like that the characters in this book are dealing with real life issues such as grief, hearing issues, single parenthood, dating, etc I m teetering on a 3.25 3.5 rating for this Thank you to the publisher and Edelweiss who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I honestly don t have much to say about this one.This is definitely an author I would read again It s a pretty great debut There s a lot of heart here, a lot of greatness, but I do feel like it s also just trying to do a little too much This would make a great movie I d definitely watch it Full review to come on release day I received an ARC from Edelweiss and the publisher thank you in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley It does not impact my review I loved this book so much It has been awhile since I ve found myself smiling so much at a story, even laughing out loud at parts Would Like to Meet is funny, sweet, ridiculously cute, and just so much fun.I knew right from the first chapter a classic meet cute gone horribly awry that I was going to enjoy reading this story Though there is much to the book then the humorous meet cute failures, they were definitely my favorite parts But I also found Evie a likable and relatable main character I liked her group of close friends and loved Ben and Annette, the father and daughter she befriends on her meet cute journey Evie s boss, Monty, and Ezra NOB, the temperamental screenwriter, also provided a good amount of humor and tension to the story.Any good Rom Com fan will probably guess how the story is going to turn out long before the final chapters, but it didn t lessen the enjoyment for me There were a few parts here and there that I felt dragged just a bit, but these are really the only complaints I can think of.Overall, I loved Would Like to Meet I loved the characters and the meet cutes and the humor I also love the cover though if you re like me, you ll need to take a second look to notice that Evie is tipping over her drink, which is perfect for the story I found this to be an impressive debut from Winters and I am very eager to see whatever she comes up with next This is definitely a must read for lovers of rom com.Overall Rating out of 5 4 Stars

    Twenty nine year old Evie Summers is stuck in a job that she kinda likes with a boss who she really doesn t and even though she should have been promoted like yesterday, it sure looks like that isn t going to happen any time soon Things get even worse when Evie s boss discloses that their screenwriting agency is about to go under unless Evie can get their hotshot top client, Ezra Chester, to actually produce the romantic comedy screenplay he s been promising them for months.When Evie meets with Ezra, he tells her that he simply can t produce the pages because he has writer s block Almost as a joke, Evie offers to provide inspiration for Ezra through her own life She promises to set up meet cutes with strangers until she falls in love with one of them She ll send him a write up of each encounter, and he will use her humiliation as his muse Ezra agrees, and Evie finds herself on some of the most unconventional and awkward dates of her life.This was a surprisingly fresh take on a tried and true love to hate romcom set up There are a lot of predictable elements the gay bff, a witty and slightly snarky group of girlfriends, a widower with a heart of gold, a crappy and incompetent boss, a love triangle, etc But there was also a lot of unexpected depth to the characters and the story I genuinely wasn t sure where Evie s romantic life was going to end up, because she had a couple different well developed and believable relationships happening at once And even though I fully expected Evie to blossom with newfound self confidence by the end, I still loved how she was able to achieve it.This was a really fun read overall Well written, creative, entertaining, and even unexpected This is author Rachel Winters s debut novel, but I m already anticipating her next book Thank you to Vine and GP Putnam s Sons for the ARC See of my reviews at www.bugbugbooks.com
