Can I just say that any book that references Moonstruck repeatedly can have a spot on my shelf?
This movie was on rotation on my Mom and my movie nights.
Franny loses her job and as she pushes into a crowded subway train she feels a pull behind her as her dress tears completely down the back cause it’s stuck in the door. She’s holding an office box and has nothing to close it with as she tries to salvage her dignity a few people try to help but one man gives her his suit coat. Franny is mortified but accepts and goes home still upset about losing her job. But her friend noticed something online and her and this man had gone viral.
The pictures of them look like they actually had chemistry. So after her friend talks her into going on a local news show, it’s still extremely awkward. Turns out this very hot man is just a bit socially awkward. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to have a male lead who doesn’t have all the things and sticks his foot in his mouth, and is internally replaying what he had said to her.
This was so cute and I totally squeed when they finally told each other that they liked each other because they were holding it close to the chest. It got 🔥 fast.
❓ Whats an iconic New York movie to you? Moonstruck is just so classic!
Thank you grandcentralpub and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

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?
