Music meets Movies in this sweet college romance from the bestselling author of Cinder & Ella.

NYU freshman Nate Anderson is a triplet who is desperate to escape his wild and crazy brothers. After they screw things up for him one too many times, Nate flees his housing situation and takes the first available room for rent as far from his brothers as he can get.

Enter his new roommate Jordan--a quirky LA girl who believes that everything in life has already been done in the movies. In this heartfelt tale of love, friendship and family, Nate learns how to deal with his new adult life using Hollywood films as a guide.

Reviewed by Kelly...

I just had the biggest sigh of contentment after reading this book. It was cute, fun, sarcastic, sweet, and clever! I loved how each chapter was titled a name of a movie and then within the chapter, the movie was mentioned and how Jordan and Nate’s lives correlated to it! It was brilliant!

Nate is just too nice! He doesn’t stir the pot! But when his brothers accidently pour coffee on his computer with his just barely saved class assignment he hits his limit. As he is out walking and trying to figure out what to do, he stops in a little coffee shop and meets Pearl. If you have read some of the other books in the series you know that Pearl is a matchmaker. She has some kind of magic and she likes to find people their perfect matches. But she tells Nate that Jordan needs a roommate. While she is telling him that, Nate’s girlfriend (whom no one likes) is present. She agrees. Nate’s girlfriend doesn’t like his brothers. So Nate goes and checks out the apartment only to find that Nate is a girl. He knows his girlfriend won’t go for it but Nate really likes everything about the apartment and kind of gets his girlfriend to agree to it before she finds out that Jordan is a girl. Sophie (the girlfriend) isn’t happy but she agrees that if something is amiss Nate will leave. But Nate really likes it there and gets along with Jordan really well. She is also into the arts although its movies she is into. That’s what she is in school for. Nate and Jordan share lots of ice cream together. Jordan never pressures Nate into anything and gets him. Quickly they really become best friends. Jordan’s other best friend is Colin. The three are always there for anything that happens for any of the three of them always.

As time goes on, Nate finds himself and learns that Sophie may not really be the one for him. He loves his brothers but he needs his space from them. He isn’t the party type.

I love watching Nate grow. I love his family and their dad. I love Jordan and how she is kind and listens to people. She helps Nate find his favorite movie and Nate helps Jordan find her favorite song. I love how they do that. I love how the romance between them isn’t even mentioned until late in the book as Nate is faithful and Nate and Jordan become best friends first. I love their conversations. I love Pearl’s conversations. I love how I feel what the characters are feeling. I freaking love this book!

If you want a book that makes you feel good, if you like ice cream, music, movies, crazy girlfriends, finding who you are, finding your best friend then falling in love with that person, then you might like this book too!

“So this is what a Pearl-approved guy looks like.” She shook her head once and cracked a smile. “She’s got good taste, I’ll give her that. You’re an odd mix of sexy and adorable. Don’t see that often.”
I was a little taken aback by the compliment, if that’s even what it was. She may have just been stating what she considered to be fact. She laughed at my surprise and held out her hand to me. “Nice to meet you. I’m Jordan Kramer.”
I’d been afraid of that. “You’re a girl.”
Jordan laughed. “That’s what it says on my birth certificate, but I’m really glad you were able to figure it out without needing to read it.”
Nope. I definitely didn’t need that.
