Book Review: If We Were a Movie by Kelly Oram

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Nate is an avid music lover who is pursuing his dreams by studying music at NYU. He’s one of a triplet and no matter how hard he tries, his two brothers always seem to be screwing things up for him. After one too many unfortunately incidents, he ends up in a coffee shop talking to a random old lady (the matchmaker) who sets events in motion that affect his future.

Jordan is a cinephile who has a movie quote or scene for every situation. She introduces Nate to a new world away from his brothers. One filled with takeout, movies, and a drama-queen best friend.

This book got four out of five stars from me. I love everything I’ve read by Kelly Oram. While this book was cute there was one main element that bothered me. Since this is a romance novel and a matchmaker places Jordan and Nate together early on in the book, I would rather have read more about their relationship as it develops. However, for most of the novel, Nate is actually dating (and sleeping with) his girlfriend. I know it can happen, but it just felt wrong to me that he was falling in love with one girl while dating another. Overall though, it was a cute romance with pretty well developed characters.
