From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren’s romantic novel.
Marriages of convenience are so...inconvenient.
For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, fate steps in one night in the form of a drunken attacker. Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions.
Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway’s hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he’s in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago.
Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway—in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting—will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?
Not my favorite by them but still good
Started off slow and I almost gave up, but once the main characters (Holland and Calvin) started interacting it flowed and made me laugh hard in a few places. I always love these two authors together.
I read a lot of books but only rarely give a five star rating. I don’t think I have enough adjectives to describe it. It was a different story, a story I got lost in, one I didn’t want to put down, one that made me laugh, smile, cry, made me angry, I became anxious, worried it would not end well, but still hopeful that it would. This is my first time reading these authors and I am going back for more. It was long and lovely, a complete story, still, I hated saying goodbye to Holland and Calvin. I bet you will too.
They just know how to write
It’s seriously devine writing that just plays out perfectly in paragraphs that form a perfect play in my head. They’ve ruined me for other writers! Everything else just seems like 4th grade level work to me. Great job ladies!! No pressure but keep them coming.
