I recommend this book to anyone who likes sweet romance, books about family drama, and starting over.
My first book by this author, and it was just what I needed!
We meet Nora when she is about to move to a new place, to live with her aunt. New school and new people. And a whole new culture...
We get only Nora's pov in this story, but I'm curious on one thing... What compelled Eli to sit down next to Nora and to start an conversation???
I just love Nora's BFF Taylor, who still lives in Austin. Read the book and you'll understand why!
"Love should just be wort it."
In the beginning I thought Nora was too naive for her own good, and I didn't really like her. But I realized, yes she is a bit naive, but she is so much more. She is one of the really good ones! With a big heart and a warmth around her, it's no wonder she gets so good friends and one very evil stepmom/monster!!
It's a light and heartfelt book! With friendship and jealousy, love and family!
"The point is to live and live well. Live and love and enjoy every day, every moment."
Emotions were all over the board. There was sadness, happiness, love, anger, disappointment, sadness, and as a reader, complete adoration towards the characters.
Details and descriptions really hit a homerun for this story. They set the scene, gave just a little extra detail, but allowed you to escape. They made most of the characters more enjoyable and really made you loathe the other characters. They will make you swoon and fall in love. You might want to throw you kindle a few times as well.
This was a very well written story. The story line is easy to follow, makes sense, and is dreamy in part. The characters are fun, will make you laugh, and will make you cry. It’s a well rounded story and one I am extremely glad I read! I definitely recommend this story to you!

I love Cinderella type novels in which the female ends up with someone everyone thinks is hard to get. However, Nora and Eli's story found me struggling to feel sympathy for Nora's plight in the celebrity and Hollywood madness. No spoilers here, you'll just have to read the book to find out what I mean. I do know however, that the character development was well done and the setting very detailed. It matched my impression of California when I visited there a couple years ago. I recommend this book for those looking for something light to read without all the drama. There is drama in this book but it is toned down and doesn't drag throughout the story. The romance is very light and sweet

If This Was A Movie is a wonderful YA contemporary about a young woman finding the courage to own her personal truth and discovering the freedom in expressing it. Nora Novak has a painful past back home in Texas that she doesn’t want to remember, so when she is thrust into a new life in Beverly Hills, moving in with her fabulous, loving, nurturing aunt, she chooses to shut that door on it forever…and lock it tight. But when Nora starts dating up-and-coming movie star Eli Evans and his celebrity status thrusts her into the limelight, Nora’s resolve is challenged. Her secrets begin to wreak havoc on her new life and loving new relationship and she is forced to take another look at how she wants to live her life and what will make her happy, learning that secrets always find the light of day and also shine light on the truth – bad and good.
This was a super fun read for me because I loved diving into Nora’s fun, new, celebrity life. The world was real (having lived in it) and the characters were very likable and real as well. I loved how Nora stood her ground, respected herself and took time to discover how she wanted to proceed in each new situation. I also loved that she had some amazing adults in her life, and I particularly loved the message of one of the adults at the end, but you’ll have to read it to find out. No spoilers here!
I definitely recommend If This Was A Movie for those who love romance, celebrity, new adventure and personal self-discovery. It really was great to have such a strong female main character! Oh, and I also loved Nora’s best friend– fun, funny, over-the-top, willing to take risks and be a goofball – and their friendship.
