Publisher's Summary

Harlow is on a single-minded mission: meet the man of his dreams by any meet-cute necessary. 

All my life, I’ve dreamed of one thing: the perfect movie moment. I want a man and his boombox outside my window; I want kissing in the rain; I want a romantic hero who will take my breath away. 

Switching mail with my cute neighbor didn’t work. Swapping coffee with a hottie at the coffee shop just got the poor barista yelled at. And bus guy? Total bust. I’m starting to wonder if Hollywood got the whole meet-cute thing wrong. Sacrilege, I know.

Is it possible the perfect leading man has been living in the apartment above me the entire time, playing the role of my best friend?

Things are about to get very interesting....

Operation: Meet Cute is a swoony, steamy best-friends-to-lovers friends-with-benefits-turned-more laugh-out-loud story with low angst and plenty of heat.

So cute!

Can I just say how cute Harlow and Teddy are together! I just love seeing how their relationship develops from friends to friends with benefits to so much more. This story just gave me so many warm happy feelings. Then Nick J. Russo does such an amazing job with this narration. I just felt all the emotions and happiness while listening to this amazing story. I absolutely love this story so much!

Beautiful 💜

This book was absolute perfection! I just loved these boys so very much!!!!! It killed me all the meet cutes Harlow was initiating. I was dying laughing every time one went horribly wrong! We just knew he would fall in love with Teddy in the end but it was so much fun and so beautiful watching them get there!!!! Also the narration was so very perfect! 💜

it will make you smile!

Teddy and Harlow were so fun to listen to!!! I loved that they were best friends, to begin with, although I felt so much for Teddy! He’s hopelessly in love with Harlow and had to watch him enact all kinds of schemes to find his true love, even when it's right in front of him!! This story will make you smile thru the whole thing!! Nick J Russo did a fantastic job with the narration, loved it!

Perfect Meet Cutes are amazing.

I absolutely love this story, it’s the perfect blend of saccharine sweet meets realness! K.M. Neuhold did not disappoint! Though she never does!

Nick Russo absolutely NAILED this performance. Harlow and Teddy were the perfect characters and I love how much more Russo brought them to life!

Silly romantic goodness + an awesome narration!

The meet cute premise of this story is fun and hilarious. I loved both Harlow and Teddy, and especially their comfortable and relaxed dynamic. They are best friends, but only Teddy is aware that he is hoping for more, it just takes Harlow some time to catch up. While the majority of this book is light and funny and sweet, there are some serious moments and mature revelations (like Harlow realizing why he’s obsessed with having the perfect meet cute and fairytale love.) I definitely recommend this book, especially if you’re a Neuhold fan. It’s her signature style of writing and storytelling. So far I’ve read this book once and listened to it once, and I definitely plan to listen to again some time. It’s on my list of comfort reads for sure. But I also adore the audiobook narrator, Nick J Russo, and love his narration on this one. If you like audios, grab this one!

Try Too Hard

I love the way that you can see Harlow working so hard for the perfect met up that he is missing out on what is right there in front of him. I love their trip and they way it helps Harlow to start to see what is there. There are some tense moments when you worry about them but this has a very satisfying happy ending.
I listened to the audio version and enjoyed it very much.

Fun

This is a fun story to listen to as Harlow tries his meets cute but doesn’t realise that what he’s looking for is right in front of him with his best friend Teddy. Can he come to realisation before he loses Teddy and take the plunge.

Searching for his leading man

Harlow is desperately searching for the perfect man for himself, he desperately set up all kinds of meet cute ops ( inspired by the movies he adores), thinking out scenario's which never come true. He sweet but mostly shows his shallow side His best friend Teddy has been smitten by Harlow, but he doesn't get the romantic attention ( one reason his name ia not leading man worthy) even after leaving sweet funny notes. One day they become f-w-b. And from there onwards things snowball.
This was a fun light and fluffy friends to lovers with a narration that ia fitting and well done foe the story.

The Almighty Keanu has blessed this romcom!

Director’s assistant Harlow Monroe loves classic romcoms to the point where he continually engineers meet-cutes in the hope of finding his perfect leading man. He prays to his deity of choice, Keanu Reaves, for success but they always end in disaster. Hedge fund manager Teddy Mullins lives in the apartment above Harlow and they’ve been best friends for years. Teddy agrees to a FWB arrangement in the hope it will lead to more. Like any good romcom, this was thoroughly enjoyable fluff with some really fun moments. Both characters are well-written, although Harlow would drive anyone crazy in real life. As always, Nick J Russo narrates the audio perfectly, moving between the comedic and tender moments with ease.
