In a delightful follow-up to Written in the Stars, Alexandria Bellefleur delivers another #ownvoices queer rom-com about a hopeless romantic who vows to show his childhood crush that romance isn’t dead by recreating iconic dates from his favorite films...
Brendon Lowell loves love. It’s why he created a dating app to help people find their one true pairing and why he’s convinced “the one” is out there, even if he hasn’t met her yet. Or... has he? When his sister's best friend turns up in Seattle unexpectedly, Brendon jumps at the chance to hang out with her. He’s crushed on Annie since they were kids, and the stars have finally aligned, putting them in the same city at the same time.
Annie booked a spur-of-the-moment trip to Seattle to spend time with friends before moving across the globe. She’s not looking for love, especially with her best friend’s brother. Annie remembers Brendon as a sweet, dorky kid. Except, the 6-foot-4 man who shows up at her door is a certified Hot Nerd and Annie... wants him? Oh yes.
Getting involved would be a terrible idea—her stay is temporary and he wants forever—but when Brendon learns Annie has given up on dating, he’s determined to prove that romance is real. Taking cues from his favorite rom-coms, Brendon plans to woo her with elaborate dates straight out of Nora Ephron’s playbook. The clock is ticking on Annie’s time in Seattle, and Brendon’s starting to realize romance isn’t just flowers and chocolate. But maybe real love doesn’t need to be as perfect as the movies... as long as you think your partner hung the moon.
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
You know those books that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? The books that make you smile endlessly while reading them? That’s this book.
Hang the Moon is a feel-good read. If you’re looking for a sweet, happy love story, then look no further. I’m sure you’ll end up binging this book! Once I started this book, I couldn’t stop reading–I didn’t want to. I fell for the characters. Brendon is the cutest, sweetest dork ever–I say that with all the love in the world. He cracked me up the entire time. Annie, sweet Annie, is super relatable. She’s stuck in a career she’s fantastic at, but she doesn’t love it. Her job is just that, a job. After reconnecting with Brendon and hanging out with her best friend, she starts to wonder if maybe she should change the trajectory of her life.
I haven’t read the author’s first book which follows two of the side characters in this book. I’ll definitely be checking that out soon! I can’t wait to read more books by this author!
