Synopsis:

A sweet and funny debut novel about falling for someone when you least expect it . . . and finding out that real life romance is better than anything on screen. 

Emma is a die-hard romantic. She loves a meet-cute Netflix movie, her pet, Lady Catulet, and dreaming up the Gay Rom Com of her heart for the film festival competition she and her friends are entering. If only they’d listen to her ideas. . . 

Sophia is pragmatic. She’s big into boycotts, namely 1) relationships, 2) teen boys and their BO (reason #2347683 she’s a lesbian), and 3) Emma’s nauseating ideas. Forget starry-eyed romance, Sophia knows what will win: an artistic film with a message. 

Cue the drama. The movie is doomed before they even start shooting . . . until a real-life plot twist unfolds behind the camera when Emma and Sophia start seeing each other through a different lens. Suddenly their rivalry is starting to feel like an actual rom-com.

My Thoughts

Rep: Sapphic | Bi | Lesbian

I’m a huge fan of rom-coms, so when I heard that this followed a rom-com fan and film maker I knew I had to pick it up. I wasn’t disappointed! Desombre’s writing is approachable and I really enjoyed how she wrote her characters. Her main and supporting characters were all interesting and felt real. I really enjoyed reading from both Emma and Sophia’s perspectives. They both had completely different backgrounds and it was interesting to see how it affected the other. I especially appreciated reading from Sophia’s perspective. If this was only in Emma’s perspective then I would have despised Sophia. She came across as pompous, rude, and self-centered. Not until I got Sophia’s perspective a few times did I really get to know her and understand her better. This really helped added depth to the two characters.

The story is predictable, in the way that all rom-coms are, and I think that’s what I loved about it. It follows the rom-com formula and made it a comforting read. At no point was I worried about everyone’s well-being because I knew where the story was going. Now that’s not to mean that there were no surprises. The “mystery” element of the rom-com was interesting and I wasn’t able to predict the culprit. Once it was revealed it all made sense, but I hadn’t know from the beginning.

I also loved the environments in this story. They visited a lot of parts of New York, but they felt like different environments because of why they were there. The overall plot of writing and creating a 15 minute film was interesting and I loved how it progressed. I did think in the end that this movie seemed awfully long for a 15 minute movie, but then again I know nothing about making one so maybe that is typical.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It would be a great summer read because of how fun it was and how quickly I read it. I managed to read this all in one sitting – a very rare thing for me. I think you would enjoy this if you enjoy Kasie West, Ali Novak, or Katie Cotugno. I can’t wait to see what else Desombre comes out with.
