Chloe Sanderson is independent, self-sufficient, and her life is happy as can be—on the outside. She fills her world with bright colors and upbeat music to distract herself from her troubles—like her father, who is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and her mother, who abandoned her family years ago, and her absent brother, who ran away to New York to escape his problems. Rather than focus on these issues, Chloe spends her time baking pies, keeping up with online classes to earn her degree, and working full-time at Nick’s coffee shop. She has no time for anything or anyone to get in her way—and especially no time for romance.
But it’s a little hard to ignore that last part when her best friend Annie has gone ahead and written a movie about her life—complete with a coffee shop romance based on Chloe and her hot boss, Nick Velez. The movie is set to air in theaters across the country, causing everyone—including Chloe—to start questioning her feelings for Nick. And okay…maybe Chloe has thought about Nick in a more-than-friends kind of way. And maybe Nick has shown some interest, too. But when love has failed her time and time again, it’s hard to admit that her life could really be like the movies. At least when her best friend has already written it.
