Summary: In this irresistible romantic romp, 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?
Review: I received this novel in exchange for my honest opinion, and I absolutely adored this novel! This novel tells the story of Kensington Shaw and her love for romantic comedy films, and her journey to love. Her ex-boyfriend, Shane Bennett comes back into her life, years after dumping her, but this poses a problem for Kenzi. For one, she's newly engaged to her current boyfriend, Bradley; her family absolutely loves him. Kenzi is also assigned to work on a project for Shane, that was inspired by her and her love for romantic films. Although I never saw most of the films on the list of films that Shane came up with, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I loved the twists in this novel and thought the "movie scenes" were absolutely cute! Although I was sort of hoping for a more detailed ending (with one of the twists), I loved this novel!
