Love Like The Movies Blog Tour by Victoria Van Tiem

Today I am part of Victoria Van Tiem's blog tour for Love Like The Movies, I was so thrilled to be asked to be part of this blog as I knew I was going to love the book as much as I love my chick-lit films. Thank you Lucie at Pan MacMillan for giving me the chance to read the book and be part of this blog tour.

For Kensington "Kenzi" Shaw, romantic movie fan, life's not quite living up to the fantasies in her favourite films. She might be smart, have a great job and a gorgeous fiance Bradley, but something's missing.
But when heart breaking ex Shane comes back into her life, things are just heating up...
Shane tries to win Kenzi over by re-enacting all the rom-com films they used to watch together - Sleepless In Seattle, Bridget Jones Diary, Love Actually and Dirty Dancing just to name a few. He's just a guy standing in front of a girl asking to trust him again, but has he really changed?
Should she risk her sensible life for the chance of a Happy Ever After? One thing's certain, when Shane meets Kenzi (again), she's suddenly not so sure who her leading man is . . .

I loved this book from start to finish, It was fantastically written, leaves you wanting to re watch all the classic and favourite rom-com's again and again.I had heard/watched most of the films mentioned in the book,
- Pretty Woman
- Sleepless in Seattle
- Dirty Dancing
- Love Actually
- 27 Dresses
- You've Got Mail
- My Best Friend's Wedding
- Say Anything
- Sixteen Candles
- Bridget Jones Diary
Another couple of films mentioned were Maid in Manhattan, How to lose a guy in ten days...

The characters are lovely, It was great reading about Kenzi shaw and her life, Felt a bit sorry for her at times as her friend Ren whos become like a second daughter to Kenzi's mum annouces she is pregnant just as Kenzi and Bradley were about to annouce her engagement so they lime light once again is on Ren. I loved Kenzi's friend Ellie, she just reminded me of my best friend and that's how we would act in some of them scenes, they will have you giggling! I couldn't stand Tonya, I just had a feeling from start that I would dislike her. I was definitely Team Shane throughout the book, he would be my perfect book boyfriend who loves rom-com's and loves reenacting the film scenes. I was happy to see Kenzi gets her happy ever after at the end.. you will smile but also may shed a tear too.

For huge fans of rom-com's are going to love this book so much, It's fun, light hearted and fan-bloody-tastic. There is some fantastic scenes in the book, especially the toy store, paintballing hehe they had me giggling lots.
I just can't express how much I loved this book so much, I just think any chick-lit fan who loves their rom-com's are going to enjoy this just as much as I did. Another thing, is the cover is beautiful even better than the US version.
didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it
