A clever, tender, and romantic novel for readers of Christina Lauren, Jasmine Guillory, and Sophie Cousens, this laugh-out-loud debut is a perceptive reminder that fate can have a sense of humor, and that love can happen…In a New York Minute.
Franny Doyle is having the worst day. She’s been laid off from her (admittedly mediocre) job, the subway doors ripped her favorite silk dress to ruins, and now she’s flashed her unmentionables to half of lower Manhattan. On the plus side, a dashing stranger came to her rescue with his (Gucci!) suit jacket. On the not-so-plus side, he can’t get away from her fast enough.
Worse yet? Someone posted their (entirely not) meet-cute online. Suddenly Franny and her knight-in-couture, Hayes Montgomery III, are the newest social media sensation, and all of New York is shipping #SubwayQTs.
Only Franny and Hayes couldn’t be a more disastrous match. She’s fanciful, talkative, and creative. He’s serious, shy, and all about numbers. Luckily, in a city of eight million people, they never have to meet again. Yet somehow, Hayes and Franny keep running into each other—and much to their surprise, they enjoy each other’s company. A lot. But when Franny’s whole world is turned upside down (again!), can she find the courage to trust in herself and finally have the life—and love—she’s always wanted?
You can’t help but love poor Franny immediately, as she has the world’s worst day. She gets laid off from her job out of the blue, and on the way home on the subway, her dress gets caught in the door and rips completely down the back. A handsome stranger graciously helps her out by giving her his suit jacket, and as he is helping her out they get caught in what looks like a compromising position. What’s even worse is that someone has made her situation go viral after posting the whole encounter on her instagram account.
This was just the epitome of a fun-filled romantic comedy! The two of them keep meeting up in the strangest of situations after their unfortunate meet cute, and they are both made into instant celebrities. Each feels a pull toward the other, but doubts the other’s interest. Our leading man is adorably awkward and puts his foot in his mouth often. Watching their floundering attempts at getting closer to each other are adorable, and made me smile throughout the book.
Perfect for anyone who needs a happy refresher with a light-hearted rom com!
