The Plot (from Goodreads):

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?

The Review: 

If you love romances set in New York City, you probably already have this book on your radar. If not, you absolutely should!

Starting with Franny’s worst day ever and her not-so-cute meet-cute on the subway, this book puts the comedy in romantic comedy. Franny and Hayes were hilarious and had great chemistry. Their romance was so much fun to read, and the narrators made their love story jump off the page.

I saw someone call this book a love letter to NYC, and that is so true. The descriptions of the city were beautiful! NYC may seem like a dirty place to some, but there is certainly beauty in it, and this book makes the reader feel like they’re there.

I loved Franny’s friend group. The side characters can make or break a rom-com, and strong female friendships always make a romance a little better for me.

This book was sweet and fun, and I would definitely recommend it.
