IN A NEW YORK MINUTE would be a really fun romcom movie and I honestly hope that it gets made.


Two strangers, a packed subway during rush hour, and a ripped dress. This book has the most memorable meet-cute setup! And, I mean, for that alone you should read it.

That being said, I really liked both our main characters. It’s an opposites attract story and I enjoyed the fact that they really took the time to become friends first. It felt like an organic way for the relationship to blossom. Now as a romance reader, it may have gotten a bit frustrating at times the longer the “friendship” part went on.

I actually think if you’re open to seeing this book as a cross between chic-lit and romance you’ll do much better with it than expecting a full on romance. There is a bit more of a character journey in this one and the romance is a slow burn. Even when it does get going it’s not the sizzling off the pages kind of romance. But there was something endearing about it. Just approach this one with the right mindset going in.

Besides Franny and Hayes we also have a great supporting cast of friends in this book. I loved the fact that both of our main characters had strong friendships in their lives.

IN A NEW YORK MINUTE would be a really fun romcom movie and I honestly hope that it gets made. If you’re on the hunt for a lighthearted and sweet romcom to read this Summer, check this one out.
