if we were a movie

    If We Were a Movie by Kelly Oram (Power of the Matchmaker #3) Music meets Movies in this sweet college romance from the bestselling author of Cinder & Ella. NYU freshman Nate Anderson is a triplet who is desperate to escape his wild and crazy brothers. After they screw things up for him one too many times, Nate flees his housing situation and takes the first available room for rent as far from his brothers as he can get. Enter his new roommate Jordan--a quirky LA girl who believes that everything in life has already been done in the movies. In this heartfelt tale of love, friendship and family, Nate learns how to deal with his new adult life using Hollywood films as a guide.

My Review:
 I know this is just one book in a series, but I haven't had the chance to read the other books by different authors in this series. All I know is that I am a fan of Kelly Oram after reading her Cinder & Ella book. So... I jumped on the opportunity to review this one. I was not disappointed either! 
I fell for Nate immediately! It was such a nice change to read it all through a male POV even though I was curious as to what was going through Jordan's head... like... ALL THE TIME! And triplets? Perfect! What young (old in my case) girls wouldn't love to read about 3 handsome, attractive, young freshmen guys starting college in the big city of NYC? Throw in some boy-ish antics, pop-culture references, music, laughter, an evil girlfriend, magical romance and you've got a great read on your hands! This book had me laughing one minute and cussing at the evil girlfriend the next. I loved it. 

Oram does such a great job building her characters whether they are the main ones or the side ones, but they all leave a place in my heart. She even makes the not-s0-nice-girlfriend a person you love to hate. They all grow throughout the book and become bigger and better. The romance was sweet and endearing. I was cheering for Jordan from the beginning because you could see how much Nate deserved so much better. 

I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

TEASER: “So this is what a Pearl-approved guy looks like.” She shook her head once and cracked a smile. “She’s got good taste, I’ll give her that. You’re an odd mix of sexy and adorable. Don’t see that often.”
I was a little taken aback by the compliment, if that’s even what it was. She may have just been stating what she considered to be fact. She laughed at my surprise and held out her hand to me. “Nice to meet you. I’m Jordan Kramer.”
I’d been afraid of that. “You’re a girl.”
Jordan laughed. “That’s what it says on my birth certificate, but I’m really glad you were able to figure it out without needing to read it.”
Nope. I definitely didn’t need that.

TEASER: I handed Jordan the electric guitar that I’ve had since I was twelve, and laughed when her eyes got really big. “You play the electric guitar, too?” “Music major,” I teased, picking up my keyboard. “I play this, too. A little. And the bass guitar.” “Awesome.” She examined the electric guitar with awe. “Why do you seem so surprised?” She looked at me as if the answer to that question should be obvious. “Hello. Have you met yourself? You with an acoustic guitar singing soft songs around a campfire or in a coffee house makes perfect sense. But I can’t picture you up on a stage, jamming on your electric guitar like a rock star.” She studied me a moment, then shook her head. “You’ll have to play for me, or I’m not going to believe it.”

  2. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book. There have been books that I have loved recently, but this is one of the best. It’s been a while since I have found a book that has made me react as much as this book does. Kelly Oram crafted a story that made me laugh aloud, smile, yell at characters and want to completely cry at one point.
