Mini ARC review: Would like to meet by Rachel Winters

Would Like to Meet

Would Like to Meet  by Rachel Winters

In this charming, feel-good debut novel, a cynical assistant at a screenwriting agency must reenact the meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedy movies in order to help her #1 client get his scriptwriting mojo back–but can a real-life meet-cute be in store for someone who doesn’t believe in happily ever after?

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.

My review:

I waited too long before writing anything for this review. I know I liked the whole storyline as a whole, it kind of had a Definitely, Maybe feel to it and I liked feeling like I was watching a romantic comedy during it.

This was one of the first romantic comedy books I read in awhile and it was a cute read. I loved how one of the characters was deaf, or she at least knew sign language and it was nice to have that represented in the book. (It’s been awhile since I read it so I don’t remember that part for sure but I think it was the daughter of one guy Evie met.)

I really liked Evie’s character. She just was so pleasant and upbeat and I liked how she followed through with the meet cute stuff.

Would like to meet is a good book to add to the collection of 2019 rom-com books.

Thank you publishers and Netgalley for giving me the chance to read this. This had no impact on my thoughts, my thoughts are my own.
