Product Description

Brooklyn-based aspiring writer Lucy Minninger has no trouble putting the comedy in her rom-coms. It's the romance part of the equation that's the problem. But even as the rejection slips pile up, and her second dates dwindle, Lucy refuses to give up hope—or her HeartThrobs™ dating profile . . .

Former child star Rudy Riziero made his mark on some of the most popular kids' shows of the '90s. But that early success has pigeonholed him into a stand-up routine riffing on his past work, while the slick single life he envisioned was clearly a fantasy. He's actually ready for a relationship, if he could just find someone uninterested in who he used to be . . .

When Lucy and Rudy match online, they're eager to meet. But after their first date ends in a psychic's prophecy that is equal parts great fortune and certain doom, their flirty quips end and their search for answers to some of life's big questions begins: Is there really one person for everyone? Do destinies really intertwine? Where can you find the best tacos in Brooklyn?

And when it matters most, will they throw caution—and fate—to the wind, trust their instincts—and write their own futures?


"A love story as delightful and idiosyncratic as its authors." —Mara Wilson, actress, Mrs. Doubtfire and Matilda

"A luminous, hilarious romance that is both equal parts magical and a heartwarming reminder that when it comes to love, we make our own fate." —Ashley Herring Blake, author of Delilah Green Doesn't Care

"For a romance heavy on humor, the performances are quite personal, especially Tamberelli's portrayal of Rudy . . . Wilson provides a clear cadence that progresses through Lucy's development." —AudioFile

"Danny Tamberelli did the male narration on the audiobook, and I loved how it felt like I was listening to a story from a friend, not a refined script." —Bookish Kenyan Nerd

"The narration was perfect, and they really made the characters come to life. I loved that they had dual narration for the dual POVs." —Jill's Bookshelf

"Danny and Mara narrating this was perfect. . . . Mara has such a pleasant voice and did a great job narrating for Lucy." —Kylie Loves Books
