Would Like to Meet; Rachel Winters

Title: Would Like To Meet
Author: Rachel Winters
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons
Published: (Expected) Dec. 3rd 2019

Can you fall in love like they do in the movies?
It’s Evie Summers’s job to find out. Because if she can’t convince her film agency’s biggest client, Ezra Chester, to write the romantic-comedy screenplay he owes producers, her career will be over. The catch? Arrogant Ezra thinks rom-coms are unrealistic—and he’ll only put pen to paper if Evie proves to him that it’s possible to meet a man in real life the way it happens on the big screen.
Cynical Evie might not believe in happily ever after, but she’ll do what it takes to save the job that’s been her lifeline…even if it means reenacting iconic rom-com scenes in public. Spilling orange juice on a cute stranger? No problem. Leaving her number in books all over London to see who calls? Done. With a little help from her well-meaning friends and the adorable father-daughter duo who keep witnessing her humiliations, Evie is determined to show Ezra she can meet a man the way Sally met Harry. But can a workaholic who’s given up on love find a meet-cute of her very own?


*A Big Thank you to Edelweiss+, Rachel Winters, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for allowing me to read this book and give an honest and unbiased review*

Hello My Fellow Readers!

*Possible Spoilers Beware* So when I read the synopsis for Would Like to Meet I knew I had to read it, and I am so glad I did! Winters did a good job of making me love Evie, while I usually don't like the nice, clumsy, overworked protagonist there is something different about Evie. Maybe because she has a backbone, but she is just struggling with self-confidence, and we are made apparent early on, on why she has this issue. 

I like that while this was supposed to be a Romantic Comedy, this book doesn't just focus on the romance aspect but we get Evie's self-love journey as well. Stuck in a job that doesn't appreciate her, still reeling from a break-up, and planning a hen-do (bachelorette party), Evie isn't happy. She keeps telling herself that she is and everyone who asks that she is but it's apparent that she is not. 

While I loved reading the book, it was pretty apparent how the plot was going to go. There was a couple of twists I didn't see but overall it was pretty predictable. Did this ruin my reading experience? Not at all! I still enjoyed the book immensely. I do wish we would have gotten a bit more to what happened after the climax of events, a year later prologue but I don't blame the author. Might I suggests a Would like to Marry sequel?
