Get ready to swoon Love Scene Take Two is so adorably sweet and swoony funny and romantic that you’ll want to read it in one sitting After a meet cute on a flight from LA to North Carolina poised for acting stardom Teddy and teen author turn screenwriter Bennett spend a weekend together and make a real connection Unfortunately bad timing bad circumstances and a misunderstanding end things before they can really begin Months later they’re thrown together on a movie set and the sparks are still there But Teddy can’t get Bennett to take another chance on him and Bennett’s not sure what’s real and what’s just for publicityTold from both Teddy’s and Bennett’s perspectives Love Scene Take Two follows these two utterly likable characters as they deal with ex girlfriends family issues friendships paparazzi and social media all while navigating a new relationship Teddy is positively dreamy and Bennett while sometimes frustrating with the way she runs hot and cold with Teddy has insecurities that make her relatable to every girlLove Scene Take Two is published by Swoon Reads a YA publisher and is marketed as a young adult romance but I will say that the character’s ages threw me at first Bennett turns 18 during the course of the story and Teddy is 20 older than typical YA leads This makes Love Scene Take Two perfect for a slightly mature YA audience With flirty banter great humor and some first love angst this is the epitome of swoony rom comFinal thoughts Love Scene Take Two was an absolute delight♥

Career his kind of plans are thrown off course by bad weather and a familiar strange. LOVE SCENE TAKE TWO is a super cute upper young adultnew adult romance Sort of famous actor Teddy Sharpe is trying out for the lead in the latest young adult book to movie adaptation Bennett Caldwell is a young adult author whose book has been optioned for a movie Bennett and Teddy end up on the same flight to North Carolina and immediately hit it off launching a 72 hour romance that ends with hurt feelings misunderstandings and maybe a little something When these two inevitably meet again on the set of the movie things are bound to be awkward Throw in an overzealous producer a meddling cousin and a rabid fan base and things are going to get all kinds of interestingPlotThis is a straight up contemporary romance with little to no subplotting but because the plot works so well that’s easy to overlook The story follows a fairly predictable path of the ups and downs of a young romance with lots of angsty emotion But while the formula may be familiar the execution is not The author’s clever dialogue uniue settings and vivid characters make this than your average romanceThe CharactersThe characters are delightful Teddy is sweet loyal and funny although he lacks a backbone in the beginning he than makes up for it later Bennett nearly three years younger showed a lack of maturity that was frustrating at times but her wittiness and vulnerability won me overTop Five Things I Enjoyed About LOVE SCENE TAKE TWO1 Book Adaptations Any author who tells you they don’t dream about seeing their book made into a movie some day is lying to you2 Teddy All kinds of adorable3 Family Drama I’m not big on my own family drama but reading other people’s is always entertaining4 Olivia As the female lead in the movie she could easily have turned into a romantic rival but instead as Bennett puts it she’s effing amazing5 Bennett She ran hot and cold so much it was hard to keep up with her feelings for Teddy but her sense of humor and snark made her easy to loveBottom LineFun contemporary romance with a Hollywood twistDisclaimerI was provided with a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Between TakesTeddy Sharpe is kind of famousHe also kind of already has Fourth of July plans But w. I was lucky enough to read this book in its original form Between Takes on Wattpad I enjoyed it so much because it read kinda like an old fantasy of mine from my earliest writing days in which my books got made into a movie with Chloe Bennet as the leading lady and I got to date her The difference being that Teddy Sharpe and Bennett Caldwell are like Dylan O'Brien and Alex Evansley but that's okay The point is even though this style of book is normally very much not for me Alex's book was completely the opposite so much up my alley and enormously lovableNow she's got this new version of her book available for all of us to read and I'll be damned if I don't get them not to stock it at the Stanford Bookstore where I'll make it yet another Staff PickI did notice a few small changes in the road from BT to LST2 Like for instance the slight de aging of both Teddy and Bennett Teddy's now just a couple of months shy of 21 at the start of this book so he can't just get a bourbon on the rocks when he boards the flight to Charlotte And Bennett she's 18 so this one part where I remember from the original version of the story where Bennett muses about how her creative writing professor criticized her a bit for writing as if Parachutes was already a movie with trailer ready snappy dialogue Or something like that I'm honestly surprised my own creative writing professors never went there with my own writing but then again they never read than oh maybe twenty pages out of the hundreds I've created for my big old series And they were far less critical than this one classmate who was just the biggest assbutt of them allbut I'm not affected by his nonsense at allI also don't remember much of Liz and Will from the original version but I'm definitely not going to forget them as written here Will is so much me he's a ueer guy though gay not uite like little bi me surrounded by family who doesn't understand him in the slightest and I wouldn't be surprised if my own family were I ever to really be out to them would out me to anyone and everyone they could just to embarrass me The way Liz does among other truly atrocious things that make her the most supremely unlikable character in the whole book And I thought Burt Bridges was the actual worst back in Between Takes On a lighter note I actually have a friend named Liz whom I told about her namesake and she and I agreed this fictional Liz felt a little like she got possessed by the spirit of Mihai the worst neighbor in Bucharest or so Romanian Duolingo would have us believe in this little running jokeBut you know what I'm very very glad I went and bought myself this book because I so badly need the lovely chemistry of #Shardwell5Ever in my life By sheer coincidence the week when Teddy and Bennett meet for the first time in my real life was marked by me trying an OKCupid date for the first time and getting totally stood up because I'm basically cursed to never be lovedYeah TedMm hmm He's got me peggedBut then there's Teddy and Bennett who are almost exactly what I want in a relationship A little insta lovey to be sure and maybe a little too reliant on repetitive lines for laughs like the alphabet of hepatitis bit but then Bennett also comments on repetition of lines being literally Teddy's job so there's that But the chemistry they have is Stonefield or Melwood grade beautiful and natural and I'm always there for that But then again there's a reason why this book gets a fair few references in my own manuscripts including a recently written bit in Peppermint where I have Alex Snow mention two clubbers being a Shardwell couples cosplay Not gonna lie if I ever do break my relationship curse get me a girl I can do this couples cosplay with I'm pretty sure I resemble Dylansorry Teddy enough to pull off that half already lol As for whoever's the lucky lady who gets to be my Bennett well all she's gotta do is make me a real sucker for a chick in a ball cap Not that I'm not already And the part I liked the best was how the Caldwell family was such a friendly and mellow bunch the kind of family I wish I had Certainly the kind that would've let me drink a little even while underage as long as I didn't cut too loose y'know Or the kind that would've let me be openly bi in peace seriously Will got the wrong branch of this family tree He deserves to be a Caldwell sib to Bennett and Tanner bothI remember Alex was working a bit on a seuel titled Outtakes at the time but I'm sure if she writes it now it'll have a different title I just hope it comes though I'm not sure I can handle a world where this is the only Shardwell tale we get And though I'm not sure I'll get to publish my own books through SwoonReads if I do I know me and mine will be in great company with Alex and hers Which reminds me I need to try and revive my SwoonReads account It's been dead for uite a while
