How to Marry Keanu Reeves in 90 Days by K.M. Jackson ~ Book Review


USA Today bestselling author K.M. Jackson delivers a hilarious road-trip rom-com perfect for fans of Meet Cute and When Harry Met Sally. 

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...

This was a fun read that had me laughing out loud quite a few times. If you are a fan of Keanu Reeves, and honestly - who isn't, you'll get a kick out of this book. Talk about next level fan girl, seriously not only does Bethany  "Lu" have throw pillows with his face on them but she is about to travel cross country to see him....oh and to stop his wedding. LOL

This was a light read which was just what I needed at the moment. I loved the relationship between all three friends, Lu, Tru, and Dawn, who have been friends since they met thirty years ago in high school. They are now in their 40s, which I had to keep reminding myself of because at times Lu didn't act her age, or even close to it which I found annoying...hence the 4 stars instead of 5, and each successful in their chosen careers. 

The chemistry between Lu and Tru was great once they finally acted on it because you could feel it simmering there for a while. If you are looking for a story that has cosplay, and tons of different actors pop up throughout this is the read for you. Hello Chris Evans, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet, just to name a few! 

I did receive an early paperback copy of this book from Forever imprint, Grand Central Publishing but didn't have a chance to read it before it's release so I decided to purchase the audiobook and glad I did because Tyla Collier did a fabulous job with bringing this story to life.

I would recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a book with a Friends to Lovers or Road Trip Theme to it, or if you enjoy Contemporary Romance this would be for you too.

Happy Reading!!!
