It’s Oscars Week!  I can’t wait to watch the red carpet arrivals and the broadcast.  I love movies almost as much as I love books.  Even though romantic comedies aren’t generally nominated for Academy Awards (what a shame!), I do loves me some rom-com.  I’m pretty sure Pretty Woman is my all time favorite but I admit it is hard to choose.  When I received this book from Simon & Schuster I was thrilled because the story is so many things I love rolled into one.  Sweet!

In this debut novel, movie fanatic Kensington Shaw is thrown into love—Hollywood-style—when her gorgeous ex presents a series of big screen challenges to win back her heart.

What girl wouldn’t want to experience the Pretty Woman shopping scene? It’s number two on the list. Or, try the lift from Dirty Dancing? It’s number five. One list, ten romantic movie moments, and a handful of shenanigans later, Kenzi has to wonder…should she marry the man her family loves, or risk everything for a love like the movies?

What great timing!  This story hit me on just the right day and it was exactly what I needed.  I was hooked into the story of Kensington Shaw from the first few pages.  She LOVES romantic comedies just like me!  Kenzi is a romantic and she’s a pleaser.  She wants everyone to be happy with her and her choices even if she might not be.  Kenzi is engaged to the “safe guy” and ready to start the life that is expected of her.  Craziness commences and someone from her past reappears causing her life to be turned upside down.  I swooned and I laughed and I had such a great time with this book.  I know you’ll love it too!
