He doesn’t believe in happy endings.
She’s lost her faith that they exist.
But could they find one together?
January is a hopeless romantic who likes narrating her life as if she’s the heroine in a blockbuster movie.
Augustus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale.
January and Augustus are not going to get on.
But they actually have more in common than you’d think:
They’re both broke.
They’ve got crippling writer’s block.
They need to write bestsellers before the end of the summer.
The result? A bet to see who can get their book published first.
The catch? They have to swap genres.
The risk? In telling each other’s stories, their worlds might be changed entirely…
So I haven’t read a romance novel in I think years and now that I have read this one, I definitely need to start picking up more. I just couldn’t stop smiling at the end.
In this book, we follow January. It has been a year since her father died and since her long-term boyfriend broke up with her, she has severe writer’s block and she has no money. She has moved into her father’s secret lake house which isn’t helping her at all emotionally and her new neighbour is none other than Gus Everrett, her writing rival.
As January starts to make friends with the people in town and starts talking to Gus she finds out that there is way more than meets the eye when it comes to him.
This book gave me such ‘Ahhh just kiss already!!’ feelings and I absolutely loved it. It made me happy and nervous and surprisingly gave me butterflies.
I really enjoyed watching January explore her feelings of losing her dad and start talking to her mum again. But I think I loved learning about Gus more and why he is so secretive, watching his walls come down was really amazing Emily Henry has done an amazing job with this book and I think I will have to be picking up more by her soon.
