Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them? Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated. Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third? What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough? What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?

I was really excited for this book when I picked it up. I normally only buy bargain priced books but I splurged on this one and I wish I hadn’t. I never got into the story line and I didn’t ship the main couple at all. Everything from Ben and Arthur’s relationship to their friendships with others felt forced to me. I almost didn’t finish this book but did just because I had spent so much money on it. As soon as I finished however, I lent it to a coworker and I’m not too stressed about getting it back.

  1. I’m sorry you didn’t like the book! It’s definitely hard to read a romantic book where you don’t ship the main characters- especially that one because there isn’t really a side plot/ other characters
