Review: The True Love Experiment - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

Sparks fly when a romance novelist and a documentary filmmaker join forces to craft the perfect Hollywood love story and take both of their careers to the next level—but only if they can keep the chemistry between them from taking the whole thing off script—from the New York Times bestselling authors of The Soulmate Equation and The Unhoneymooners.

Felicity “Fizzy” Chen is lost. Sure, she’s got an incredible career as a beloved romance novelist with a slew of bestsellers under her belt, but when she’s asked to give a commencement address, it hits her: she hasn’t been practicing what she’s preached.

Fizzy hasn’t ever really been in love. Lust? Definitely. But that swoon-worthy, can’t-stop-thinking-about-him, all-encompassing feeling? Nope. Nothing. What happens when the optimism she’s spent her career encouraging in readers starts to feel like a lie?

Connor Prince, documentary filmmaker and single father, loves his work in large part because it allows him to live near his daughter. But when his profit-minded boss orders him to create a reality TV show, putting his job on the line, Connor is out of his element. Desperate to find his romantic lead, a chance run-in with an exasperated Fizzy offers Connor the perfect solution. What if he could show the queen of romance herself falling head-over-heels for all the world to see? Fizzy gives him a hard pass—unless he agrees to her list of demands. When he says yes, and production on The True Love Experiment begins, Connor wonders if that perfect match will ever be in the cue cards for him, too.

The True Love Experiment is the book fans have been waiting for ever since Fizzy’s debut in the New York Times bestselling The Soulmate Equation. But when the lights come on and all eyes are on her, it turns out the happily ever after Fizzy had all but given up on might lie just behind the camera.

Review: The True Love Experiment
By Christina Lauren

Review: The True Love Experiment

A romance novelist and a documentary filmmaker partner on a reality show and along the way find joy and love, in Christina Lauren’s latest, THE TRUE LOVE EXPERIMENT.

Beloved romance author Felicity “Fizzy” Chen has lost her mojo – she’s suffering from a bad case of writer’s block, likely because she’s yet to find that all-encompassing, fireworks kind of love. Her last entanglement ended chaotically, leaving her scarred in a way she won’t soon forget.

Single dad and producer Connor Prince is stuck too, forced to shoot a dating reality show instead of the socially conscious documentaries he prefers. Desperate for an idea to make the show unique, he stumbles on Fizzy—the romantic lead everyone is sure to love.

Fizzy’s immediate answer is ‘no way’—unless Connor can meet her unusual list of demands. And when he does, The True Love Experiment really begins.

Fizzy and Connor spark immediate chemistry, finding something special in each other. The problem is Connor should be helping Fizzy find her soulmate and any relationship between them is strictly—and legally—forbidden. As tension and chemistry reaches a fever pitch, the show, their careers, and their futures, hang precariously in the balance.

As they always seem to do, Christina Lauren delivers a perfect romcom. The story felt fresh, exciting, and yet familiar, as they play with romance archetypes throughout. This is their love letter to romance authors and readers alike, making it even more enjoyable to read.

But it’s Fizzy and Connor who bring the story to life spectacularly. Fizzy is such a funny and charismatic heroine, the ideal complement to the caring-yet-pragmatic Connor. You could really feel them falling in love page after page. Their banter, their chemistry, it all makes this romp an utter delight to read, and a joyful, one-weekend binge.
