Blurb: They couldn’t be more opposite, the Hollywood actor and the hometown girl, but all they need is a little convention magic to become the perfect ship in Cathy Yardley’s One True Pairing.
Jake Reese needs a decoy girlfriend. Fast. The lead actor of the popular TV show, Mystics, is tired of losing his shirt to overeager fans. Literally. Which is why a chance meeting with gothabilly bookworm-slash-barista Hailey Frost seems almost too perfect to be true. Hailey is not impressed with his TV fame and is desperate to save her family’s bookstore. It’s a match made in Hollywood, but as the two pretend to date, fan fiction becomes reality. Can this OTP become canon?
First off, I LOVE the covers of her books! Level Up had a great cover too!
I really enjoyed this cute romcom with a nerdy twist. I mean, how could you not? We already met these characters in Level Up and the setting for the story takes place in a book store. That sold me right there!
Hailey is a spitfire with a fierce loyal streak. I loved her character immediately. Her gothabilly style was appealing and described perfectly. You could really tell her family was important to her and she was not too proud to ask for help.
Jake was super adorable. His genuine love of the show was written beautifully and he was very down to earth despite his fortunate circumstances. The pocket ripping incident shone a light on the fact that sexual harassment isn’t just aimed at females. The chemistry was scorching hot and I loved how they both tried to ignore it but just couldn’t keep their hands to themselves. Which made for some pretty heavy fanning as I read it!
And the setting was totally up my alley. You know you are gonna meet some great characters in a bookstore. Even better, a fandom bookstore! I’m totally jealous of Hailey for being able to live above it. But I’m not bitter. 😉
Highly recommend reading all her books.
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest/unbiased review.
