Description
Opposites certainly attract for the stranded pop star and small-town baker in this charming slice of romance from the author of the TikTok sensation The Cheat Sheet.
“This modern take on the Hepburn classic Roman Holiday is a quick, fun, slow-burn rom-com.”—Abby Jimenez, bestselling author of The Friend Zone
ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: NPR
Amelia Rose, known as Rae Rose to her adoring fans, is burned-out from years of maintaining her “princess of pop” image. Inspired by her favorite Audrey Hepburn film, Roman Holiday, she drives off in the middle of the night for a break in Rome . . . Rome, Kentucky, that is. 
When Noah Walker finds Amelia on his front lawn in her broken-down car, he makes it clear he doesn’t have the time or patience for celebrity problems. He’s too busy running the pie shop his grandmother left him and reminding his nosy but lovable neighbors to mind their own damn business. Despite his better judgment, he lets her stay in his guest room—but only until her car is fixed—then she’s on her own. 
Then Noah starts to see a different side of Rae Rose—she’s Amelia: kindhearted and goofy, yet lonely from years in the public eye. He can’t help but get close to her. Soon she’ll have to return to her glamorous life on tour, but until then, Noah will show Amelia all the charming small-town experiences she’s been missing, and she’ll help him open his heart to more. 
Amelia can’t resist falling for the cozy town and her grumpy tour guide, but even Audrey had to leave Rome eventually.

        July 11, 2022
        Adams (The Cheat Sheet) charms with this adorable mismatched romance between an Audrey Hepburn–obsessed pop star and a grumpy small-town baker. In urgent need of a break, pop star Rae Rose (real name Amelia) takes a cue from Roman Holiday and takes off for the nearest Rome she can find: Rome, Kentucky. Unfortunately, her beloved clunker of a car breaks down right as she rolls into town. Luckily, Noah Walker, the owner of a local pie shop, stops to help her out (though first he has to convince her he’s not a murderer). When Amelia’s reservation at the town’s lone bed and breakfast falls through, she winds up staying in Noah’s guest room. Thrown together, Noah learns to see the messy humanity behind Amelia’s pop princess persona, and Amelia discovers the kind heart beneath Noah’s gruff exterior. When someone close to Amelia betrays her trust, she finds her life at a crossroads—and there’s no one she’d rather have as her rock than Noah. Amelia makes a complex and believable heroine and Noah is the ideal small-town hero. As light and catchy as a pop song, this sweet romance is sure to please.

        January 13, 2023

        Singing sensation Amelia Rose thought fame would equal freedom, but the pressure of her people-pleasing ways is inescapable. Desperate for downtime, she channels her favorite actress, Audrey Hepburn, and takes a Roman Holiday. Unfortunately for the pop princess, an undercover Italian getaway is impractical, so she picks the next best--er, closest--thing: Rome, KY. Life imitates art a bit too closely when Amelia, like Audrey, finds love in the small town, but Noah Walker has been burned by a big-city relationship before. Are they destined for the same agonizing ending as the film, or will they write their own story? Adams (The Cheat Sheet) proffers a heartwarming romantic comedy featuring complex characters in a compelling narrative. From wistful and wary to witty and wanton, narrators Karissa Vacker and Andrew Eiden are a delightful team. Vacker is a perfect match for Amelia's buoyant brightness, while Eiden has a bit more edge than a stereotypical small-town Southern suitor, but both give emotional and engaging performances. VERDICT This audio will appeal to fans seeking a contemporary opposites-attract rom-com about fame, family, and finding yourself. Recommended for fans of Tessa Bailey, Dylan Newton, and Abby Jimenez.--Lauren Hackert
