Would Like to Meet, Rachel Winters

Would Like to Meet: The most uplifting romantic comedy you’ll read in 2020 by [Rachel Winters]

Genre: Women’s Fiction

First off, Women’s Fiction – its 2020, this category is well past its sell by date. Men read and write books like this.
I loved the sound of this but….though it made me laugh several times, it wasn’t one that was a great read for me. Its light and fun, but felt kind of cluttered with so many possible plots, so much going on. Its was just so busy that for me it kind of lost direction. I felt Evie was a pretty poor friend to the JEMS too, very wrapped up in her own life, expecting help and support from them, but rarely offering any back.

I didn’t see how as an aspiring writer, encouraged by her dad since she was a kid, she let one rejection go to heart like that. Changed her whole career ambitions from it. Surely she’d know rejections are just part of a writers life?
The real stars were Ben ( I loved him) and of course Anette. She was an incredible kid, especially for only seven, but then maybe losing her mum made her grow up quick. Her actions were really touching.
I did like ( to dislike) the yummy mummies and their awful offspring and names. The vomiting session from Justice, reminded me of way back when as twenty somethings my husband and I had a small beach cafe. Picture it: busy lunchtime, seats all full and then right in the centre a kid vomits spectacularly over the table, floor, chairs, luckily didn’t get any people. “Oh” says mum blithely “ that always happens when she has strawberry milkshake, but she really wanted it”. Of course mum wasn’t the one that had to clean it up, that was me, muttering “why give her the damn stuff then….”

I’d guessed almost from the off what was going to happen with NOB and his manuscript, I don’t mind sometimes, but that was just so predictable I was disappointed.
I’m a reader, not a film lover so maybe the story would have appealed more if I’d seen the films connected to the story.
Its a decent read but I felt didn’t quite hit the spot for me. Usual caveat, what one reader hates another loves. Just because this didn’t do it for me, doesn’t mean you won’t love it as much as other readers do. Reading is incredibly subjective.

Stars: Two and a half. Just didn’t really work for me, too busy, too predicable in parts.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
