One True Pairing (Fandom Hearts #2)
by Cathy Yardley

ebook200 pages
Expected publication: July 25th 2017 by Swerve

They couldn't be more opposite, the Hollywood actor and the hometown girl, but all they need is a little convention magic to become the perfect ship in Cathy Yardley's One True Pairing.

Jake Reese needs a decoy girlfriend. Fast. The lead actor of the popular TV show, Mystics, is tired of losing his shirt to overeager fans. Literally. Which is why a chance meeting with gothabilly bookworm-slash-barista Hailey Frost seems almost too perfect to be true. Hailey is not impressed with his TV fame and is desperate to save her family's bookstore. It's a match made in Hollywood, but as the two pretend to date, fan fiction becomes reality. Can this OTP become canon?

I haven't read any books in this series, but after reading the synopsis of One True Pairing, I knew I couldn't pass this book up! I am a true fangirl, so reading a book about a geeky convention mixed with a fangirl's dream romance seemed like the ideal book for me! One True Pairing was an adorable, fun, relatable, and nerdy dream! 

As soon as this book started, I was immediately hooked. The nerdy fangirl in me immediately latched onto the convention plot of this book. The book began with a fun and quirky beginning that was very unexpected. From then on, the book only continued to get more addictive. There were times that this book felt a little slow or unexpectedly overdramatic for my tastes, but the book was still entertaining as a whole. This book was actually more emotional than I was expecting, which was a nice touch. 

Hailey was a funny and inspirational main character! She was a woman who worked hard for everything in her life, and I really admired that about her. Her love for her sisters warmed my heart and I loved how caring she was. Jake was an attractive man that I couldn't help but fall in love with. I adored his secretly nerdy side and how kind he was. It was easy to assume he was a jerk because he was a hot celebrity, but it was nice to see there was much more to him that what was on the surface. *swooooon*

The romance in this book was sexy and full of banter. I was shipping Hailey and Jake from their first interaction! I would have liked there to been even more of a slow burn between them, but I still really enjoyed their romance. The chemistry between Hailey and Jake was palpable and I think the author did a great job at making it feel believable. The nerdiness of their relationship made me fangirl so hard and hope that this type of romance will happen to me one day!

Overall, One True Pairing was a great book for a nerdy romance lover like me to escape reality. I cannot wait to read more books in this series! Also, I am going to cross my fingers that this author will one day write an adorable fangirl romance with me as the main character!
