***This book is part of a multi-author project that features one recurring character-The Match Maker-but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.***
Sometimes to write a book review, I have to think long and hard. I’m always a little nervous at the thought of a ‘real’ author reading my silly little website. Every now and then though, I have so much excitement about a book that I can’t worry about what they think.
I just write. This book is one of them. I have a thing where if I’m not interested in the first three pages, I’m done. I can’t or won’t force myself to read something that doesn’t quickly draw me in.
If We Were a Movie drew me in quickly and I couldn’t put it down. I finished the book in two days, letting my other responsibilities take a hard backseat. I think my husband is still mad that he didn’t get any conversation for an entire evening because I couldn’t stop reading.
The title of the book intrigued me from the beginning and the book gave what it promised in that paragraph meant to steal all of our attention. A love story with twists and turns, it gave what it promised and then some.
Rather than my typical disappointment when a book ends, I am excited to know Kelly Oram has a series of books related called the MatchMaker Series. It is not often that I find an author whose books I feel like I must read, but this one is one of those rare ones.
I normally say something along the lines of ‘you should’ or ‘must read’ but this time, I’m just going to say if you don’t read it, you are missing out. To quote Levar Burton from Reading Rainbow, “Don’t just take my word for it…”
