Whenever I pick up a book by this duo, I know that I am going to be in for a good time. The True Love Experiment was just the cheerful, romantic, humorous read that I was in the mood for.
Felicity “Fizzy” Chen certainly is a character. She’s a best-selling romance author who is as effervescent as her name implies. She has a killer sense of humor, she’s confident, outgoing, intelligent, and she’s never been in love. Never. Oh, she’s had plenty of dates and lovers, but to say that she’s ever been truly smitten or head-over-heels with someone, she really hasn’t.
I couldn’t help but love Fizzy. Yes, she was a lot, but she was fun, entertaining, and interesting. When she was offered the opportunity to be on a brand-new reality show to find her true soulmate with the formula that her friend had developed, she was hesitant, but eventually decided to go for it. What was the worst that could happen?
Connor Prince III had to develop this new dating show in order to keep his job and continue to live close to his daughter. The last thing that this documentary filmmaker wanted to do was a dating show, but you gotta do what you gotta do, and once he met Fizzy, he knew that she had enough star-power to bring in the ratings and keep his job. Ah, but Fizzy was more intriguing than just the face of his show. She was the firecracker that was about to add the spark to his world. Yes!
I enjoyed the interactions between Fizzy and Connor. They had a smoldering attraction, great banter, and a reason to spend a lot of time together, but the show was about finding Fizzy’s soulmate among the Hero contestants, not about her developing a relationship with the show’s producer.
The True Love Experiment felt like an ode to romance readers (I loved that). Fizzy loved her fans and the exuberance that they had at her book signings and for her upcoming releases, and despite being in a bit of a creative drought, she loved writing romance.
If you’re looking for a bit of joy in your own life, pick up this book, it is sure to bring a smile to your face and delight your romance-loving heart.
