Goodreads Synopsis: Dev Deshpande has always believed in fairy tales. So it’s no wonder then that he’s spent his career crafting them on the long-running reality dating show Ever After. As the most successful producer in the franchise’s history, Dev always scripts the perfect love story for his contestants, even as his own love life crashes and burns. But then the show casts disgraced tech wunderkind Charlie Winshaw as its star.

Charlie is far from the romantic Prince Charming Ever After expects. He doesn’t believe in true love, and only agreed to the show as a last-ditch effort to rehabilitate his image. In front of the cameras, he’s a stiff, anxious mess with no idea how to date twenty women on national television. Behind the scenes, he’s cold, awkward, and emotionally closed-off.

As Dev fights to get Charlie to connect with the contestants on a whirlwind, worldwide tour, they begin to open up to each other, and Charlie realizes he has better chemistry with Dev than with any of his female co-stars. But even reality TV has a script, and in order to find to happily ever after, they’ll have to reconsider whose love story gets told.

In this witty and heartwarming romantic comedy—reminiscent of Red, White & Royal Blue and One to Watch—an awkward tech wunderkind on a reality dating show goes off-script when sparks fly with his producer.

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for Alliana, Girl of Dragons by Julie Abe.

In release date order, here are my top 5 (and 1 honourable mention) anticipated books for August 2022.

Top 5 Anticipated Reads: July 2021 – June 2022 Check-in

I had planned on checking in way more often, but I have to start at some point. Here are all the releases I was interested in since I started this segment until now, so July 2021 to June 2022 (well, you’ll actually see it’s only until May because I forgot June, but it felt better as a year lol). Luckily, I missed a lot of months within that year so it may not be as dense as I fear. Going forward, to make sure to avoid so long posts, I’ll make sure to check-in quarterly and make it one of my quarterly check-in posts (way less daunting).

So how am I going to do this? This post will likely just be the cover, whether or not I’ve read it and my rating with a quick sentence or two on thoughts or a link to my review if they exist. I’m sorry because I know this is just going to be a super long post…. sigh, so without further adieu – let’s do this!
