If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, enemies to lovers, and fake dating tropes, then this book is for you! Love You, Mean It by Jilly Gagnon tells the story of Ellie Greco. When a local real estate developer’s plans threaten the family business, Greco’s Deli, Ellie goes to great lengths to stop them.
While our protagonist does make some cringe-worthy choices, I still thoroughly enjoyed this. Ellie made her choices with the best intentions in mind, and like her, as a person who sometimes lacks self-confidence, I can relate to her state of mind. And I’m sure you’ll be rooting for her, just like I was.
Even though the premise is completely different, this reminded me of the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The chemistry between our main characters, Ellie and Theo, perhaps?
If you’re looking for a fun beach read, or something warm and fuzzy to keep you warm this winter, I highly recommend Love You, Mean It.
