TEASER: “So this is what a Pearl-approved guy looks like.” She shook her head once and cracked a smile. “She’s got good taste, I’ll give her that. You’re an odd mix of sexy and adorable. Don’t see that often.”
I was a little taken aback by the compliment, if that’s even what it was. She may have just been stating what she considered to be fact. She laughed at my surprise and held out her hand to me. “Nice to meet you. I’m Jordan Kramer.”
I’d been afraid of that. “You’re a girl.”
Jordan laughed. “That’s what it says on my birth certificate, but I’m really glad you were able to figure it out without needing to read it.”
Nope. I definitely didn’t need that.

TEASER: I handed Jordan the electric guitar that I’ve had since I was twelve, and laughed when her eyes got really big. “You play the electric guitar, too?” “Music major,” I teased, picking up my keyboard. “I play this, too. A little. And the bass guitar.” “Awesome.” She examined the electric guitar with awe. “Why do you seem so surprised?” She looked at me as if the answer to that question should be obvious. “Hello. Have you met yourself? You with an acoustic guitar singing soft songs around a campfire or in a coffee house makes perfect sense. But I can’t picture you up on a stage, jamming on your electric guitar like a rock star.” She studied me a moment, then shook her head. “You’ll have to play for me, or I’m not going to believe it.”

My Review
If We Were A Movie is the story of a young woman, Jordan, and a young man, Nate, who have the fortune to both meet Pearl. Now Pearl is not an ordinary person, you know that if you have been following the matchmaker series, she is ageless and has the insight to find the right person for everyone she takes under her wing, she seems to be able to mountains if she wants.
Nate has been in a long-term relationship and was trying to break it off by going to NYU, and low and behold his high school girl friend, ends up in NY also. His triplet brothers, yes life for Nate is very interesting, don’t like this girl, and try different ways to pull Nate out and have him meet other women.
When life gets unbearable living in a small dorm room with his brothers, yes three to a two-man room, and the report he has been working on is destroyed, he leaves. Now with Pearl in charge, he doesn’t move in with high school girl, no, he moves in with Jordan, whom we learn has a history of choosing losers.
Now Nate is music major and his life revolves around songs, and Jordan has built her life on movies, so everything they do or think is a reminiscence of either a song or a movie.
When Thanksgiving comes around and Nate goes home to be with his family, Jordan ends up driving him to Syracuse in her Ferrari, take about envious brothers! But said x-girlfriend is also home, in Syracuse, and what she reveals could wreck everyone’s life.
This is a quick and interesting read, we attend college in NY and we travel upstate, and we see where relationships can go to extreme. Wonder where Pearl is going next?
I received this book through I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, and was not required to give a positive review.
