If We Were A Movie (Power of the Matchmaker, Book 3) by Kelly Oram

Music meets Movies in this sweet college romance from the bestselling author of Cinder & Ella.

NYU freshman Nate Anderson is a triplet who is desperate to escape his wild and crazy brothers. After they screw things up for him one too many times, Nate flees his housing situation and takes the first available room for rent as far from his brothers as he can get.

Enter his new roommate Jordan–a quirky LA girl who believes that everything in life has already been done in the movies. In this heartfelt tale of love, friendship and family, Nate learns how to deal with his new adult life using Hollywood films as a guide.

“So this is what a Pearl-approved guy looks like.” She shook her head once and cracked a smile. “She’s got good taste, I’ll give her that. You’re an odd mix of sexy and adorable. Don’t see that often.”

I was a little taken aback by the compliment, if that’s even what it was. She may have just been stating what she considered to be fact. She laughed at my surprise and held out her hand to me. “Nice to meet you. I’m Jordan Kramer.”
I’d been afraid of that. “You’re a girl.”

Jordan laughed. “That’s what it says on my birth certificate, but I’m really glad you were able to figure it out without needing to read it.”

Nope. I definitely didn’t need that.

 

My-review-button-brown1

  ‘If We Were A Movie’ is the first book I have read by Kelly Oram, and I LOVED it. This book is the 3rd book in The Power of the Matchmaker Series. There will book a book in the series released each month til the end of the year.

Nate is a triplet, and sharing a dorm room with his brothers. He is the more serious and studious of the three, and his brothers are more interested in parting and finding girls. They are always trying to get him to go out, instead of staying in and studying. They also dislike Sophie and are constantly pushing girls on him, in hopes that he will break up with Sophie. Everything comes to a head one night, when the brothers are trying to get Nate to go out with them instead of finishing a project that is due in the morning. He leaves the dorm room angry, and wanting to get away from them. Everything changes this night, and you will have to read the book to find out what happens.

The story takes place in New York city, and I thought of my niece the whole time I was reading the book. It is her dream to move to New York. Kelly Oram has written a book full of likable characters, with Nate, Jordan & Colin being my favorite. My least favorite was Nate’s girlfriend, Sophie, his high school sweetheart. She is controlling, snotty, and just an all around brat.

Pearl makes a brief appearance in this book, so you don’t see as much of her as you did in Almost Happenstance by Rachael Anderson. If We Were a Movie was an extremely FUN read, and I didn’t skip over any parts, because there was not one sentence that was boring. I will definitely be reading some of Kelly Oram’s other books. This was a clean, sweet read, with some kissing. Please don’t confuse sweet, and clean for a boring book. This book was anything but boring.

I loved all the references to movies in this book. Jordon was always comparing life’s happenings to a movie and it’s characters. If you love clean, sweet romance, with characters in their early 20’s, this book is for you! I was given a free eBook in exchange for my honest review.
