Publisher Description

You’ve Got Mail meets Morgan Matson in this smart, banter-filled romcom with a bookish twist.

Nothing will stop Madeline Moore from taking over her family’s independent bookstore after college. Nothing, that is—until a chain bookstore called Prologue opens across the street and threatens to shut them down.

Madeline sets out to demolish the competition, but the guy who works over at Prologue seems intent on ruining her life. Not only is he taking her customers, he has the unbelievable audacity to be… extremely cute.

But that doesn’t matter. Jasper is the enemy and he will be destroyed. After all—all’s fair in love and (book) war.

Expressionless Face“I wasn't a big fan of this book until about halfway through. That's when the book picked up for me. It was hard getting into a good rhythm, I think because some chapters were so long and others were extremely short. However, the book did redeem itself a little bit. I liked the character growth on Madeline & Dahlia's part. Also, it felt realistic that they weren't able to save the bookstore in the end.”

Thumbs Up“It wasn’t my favorite book. I didn’t feel connected to the characters, so I just wasn’t very invested. I enjoyed the bookstore setting and some of the banter was good, but overall I wouldn’t recommend this book.”
