After seven years as an assistant, 29-year-old Evie Summers is ready to finally get the promotion she deserves. But now the TV and film agency she’s been running behind the scenes is in trouble, and Evie will lose her job unless she can convince the agency’s biggest and most arrogant client, Ezra Chester, to finish writing the script for a Hollywood romantic comedy.
The catch? Ezra is suffering from writer’s block–and he’ll only put pen to paper if singleton Evie can prove to him that you can fall in love like they do in the movies. With the future of the agency in jeopardy, Evie embarks on a mission to meet a man the way Sally met Harry or Hugh Grant met Julia Roberts.
But in the course of testing out the meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedies IRL, not only will Evie encounter one humiliating situation after another, but she’ll have to confront the romantic past that soured her on love. In a novel as hilarious as it is heartwarming, debut author Rachel Winters proves that sometimes real life is better than the movies–and that the best kind of meet-cutes happen when you least expect them.
“Making new friends as an adult is as nerve-racking as asking someone on a date.”
Would Like To Meet is a fun romantic debut novel from author Rachel Winters. I’m very picky when it comes to romantic comedies. I’ve decided to give this a shot after hearing good things from my fellow blogger friends and I wasn’t disappointed. The main character was pretty fun and I really liked the meet cute concept. If you’re looking for something light and fun, and less emotional then definitely pick this up guys.
Evie Summers was a likable character. I really enjoyed her clumsy attempts to find the right guy. I know it’s sort of wrong, but still it was fun. Her boss Monty was totally unreliable. I hated him! Ezra Chester was smug, arrogant and total douche who doesn’t believe in love at first sight and he challenges Evie to prove him wrong. From the start, I didn’t like Ezra and my intuition was right. I’m glad Evie didn’t fell for his charms. Coming to my favorite characters, I really liked Ben and his daughter Annette. Ben is a broody widow who doesn’t talk much, but his daughter Annette was a total sunshine. Their conversations with Evie in the coffee shop always brought a smile to my face. I also loved Evie’s three best friends. They’re so much fun. Together they’re planning for their best friend’s wedding. They mostly communicated with each other via text messages.
The plot was very much fun, adorable, and entertaining! Even though it was somewhat predictable and a little bit cliched, I really enjoyed it. The secondary characters made this book even more fun to read. The meet-cute scenes were hilarious. The romance was super sweet and cute but I wish there was more interactions between the couple. If you’re wondering there’s no steamy scenes in the book. This book has two love interests and I was a bit worried with whom Evie is going to end up with. I’m glad that my ship was sailed because the other one was no good. I loved the witty writing style of the author and also the London setting. The book was written in Evie’s POV, but it would’ve been great if we also got Ben’s POV.
Overall, It was a good stand-alone rom-com filled with romance, friendship, and family. The ending was satisfying enough and I’m definitely looking forward to the author’s next work.
I highly recommend this book, if you’re looking for a sweet and cute rom-com.
