How to Marry Keanu Reeves in 90 Days by K.M. Jackson
Bethany Lu Carlisle is devastated when the tabloids report actor Keanu Reeves is about to tie the knot. What?! How could the world’s perfect boyfriend and forever bachelor, Keanu not realize that making a move like this could potentially be devastating to the equilibrium of…well…everything! Not to mention, he’s never come face to face with the person who could potentially be his true soulmate—her.
Desperate to convince Keanu to call off the wedding, Lu and her ride-or-die BFF Truman Erikson take a wild road trip to search for the elusive Keanu so that Lu can fulfill her dream of meeting her forever crush and confess her undying love. From New York to Los Angeles, Lu and True get into all sorts of sticky situations. Will Lu be able to find Keanu and convince him she’s the one for him? Or maybe she’ll discover true love has been by her side all along…
From the very beginning this book was super cute. That rom-com vibe in a book was just what I was looking for so I was excited to jump into it. The idea of marrying Keanu is a perfect hook and at first the characters all seemed to be likable. The road trip Lu and True find themselves on takes them to all kind of cute destinations that were fun to read about. However, throughout the entire book Bethany Lu has this attitude towards her friend True that comes across as kind of mean. He’s always really kind and caring towards her and apparently she cares about him too, because she thinks it to herself, but the way she speaks to him and treats him just kind of put me off.
This book read like your typical romance novel with cheesy and at times cringy dialogue. Really cute if you enjoy reading romance, but I was expecting a little more of the comedy to come around and was left disappointed. It alternated POVs between Lu and True, which reminded me of those Wattpad books that seemed to just kind of ramble out thoughts in the character’s head to take up space.
It was an easy enjoyable read overall and I recommend for romance lovers who enjoy road trips.
Thank you Forever and Grand Central Publishing for sending me an e-ARC of this book for review.
