Rezension zu "Just Like in the Movies: A laugh out loud, enemies to lovers, opposites attract, romantic comedy perfect for the summer! (English Edition)" von Heidi Rice
I like movies, especially older ones, almost as much as Ruby does. Thus I could relate to her instantly. I also liked the fact that Luke isn't the typical bad boy who has his eyes set only on the money and needs to be convinced that people are also valuable. He already has his heart in the right place, but he is also pragmatic and realistic.
So this story started out as a very nice chick-lit with a movie-twist, but suddenly turned into a New Adult novel. This somehow didn't fit with the rest of the story, and the demeanour of Ruby and Luke also didn't feel coherent then. But the biggest astonishment: no reference to "Out of Africa" when he is washing her hair! How could Heidi Rice miss that perfect opportunity. She could have turned this scene into something really really sweet, but instead makes a cringe-worthy moment out of it.
That being said, I still liked Ruby and Luke, although their love story is not exactly 'like in the movies' (and even though I had a really hard time to understand Rubys stubbornness in the end).
