Welcome to the present time retelling of “You’ve got mail!”
DIFFERENCES: -There is no competition between local book shop and Barnes and Noble store, we had a local deli famous with its signature cheese sandwich versus burger joint that stole deli’s special cheese sandwich recipe and declares the secret recipe belonged to them! -We don’t have stubborn as hell but charming as well adults like younger version of Tom and chick lit version of Meg! We have overachiever, responsible, competitive, serious, swim team captain PEPPER and smart, witty, sarcastic, technical genius JACK is also responsible, family oriented, hard worker boy who hated to be overshadowed by his popular, leader, charming identical twin brother! -They don’t send EMAILS! They sent TWITS ! Actually they fight via TWITTER! But they also secretly cyber date on the application Jack designed. And in their normal life, they’re FRENEMIES who don’t stand with each other but unfortunately they sit next to each other at the classes. ( They know the rule about keeping enemy closer!) -There are lots of PASTRIES, SWEETS,DESERTS on this book which gave me real cravings and threw a 3 am baking party at my kitchen( I’m the worst cook so I woke my husband up to cook for me!) Shame on my sweet tooth! SIMILARITIES: Tension between characters, story-development enemies to friends to lovers. Undeniable chemistry The complication when they find out their secret identities. Never ending rivalry Story located in NYC. They didn’t meet the famous French Café Lalo was the best location of the movie( Please try its Nutella cheesecake when you stop by then write me thank you notes!) But the characters met at the coffee shop. Pepper actually has great gift about creating different, tasteful deserts which helped her seduce Jack at the first bite! SUMMARY: It’s fluffy, swoony, smart, entertaining, fast pacing, full of memes and popular culture references and social media forms. Sometimes their cyber fight overshadowed the romance part which a little disturbed me but mostly I really enjoyed this debut novel. It made me smile, feel good and have so much fun!!!Such a funny, positive, joyful reading! Thanks to Netgalley and Wednesday Books to share this incredible ARC COPY with me in exchange my honest review!
