How to Marry Keanu Reeves in 90 Days
People always looked at me like I was half crazy. Made me feel like the odd girl out, but not True. Never True.
I guess that was why when he’d said I’d gone mad—or maybe the word he’d used was insane—this time I took it to heart. Sort of. Okay, fine. So I may have only briefly paused to give his reaction to my plan a smidge of consideration before continuing my full-steam-ahead charge.
But he had to understand, life was happening. The world was still spinning, even if it felt like mine had stopped. Once again.
Or maybe I wanted it to stop. I didn’t know. But that part didn’t matter, did it? Does it?
What mattered was that True got me. That he had me. That he understood, that he’d still be there for me, be my friend. Bring me back from the edge. Like before. Like always.
Besides, True always knew it was Keanu or nothing for me.
Why I love it
Author, The Dating Plan
I love a good romantic comedy. Give me a story that will make me laugh, swoon, sigh, and cheer and I'll be up until the early hours of the morning turning the pages until I get to that happily-ever-after ending. Throw in some of my favorite tropes: friends-to-lovers, secret crush, celebrity sightings, road trip, and "there's only one bed," and I’m in heaven. K. M. Jackson's How to Marry Keanu Reeves in 90 Days had everything I love in a rom-com and more. It is the perfect book escape when you’re looking for something fun, sexy, and sweet with a dash of adventure!
Bethany Lu Carlisle's life is spiraling out of control. When she discovers her celebrity crush, Keanu Reeves, is planning to get married in 90 days, she decides to track him down to convince him not to get married (or that she is his true love forever). Lucky for her, Truman "True" Erikson, her childhood friend and the most delicious and adoring cinnamon roll hero, offers to help make her dream come true.
Lu's and True's heartwarming road trip of self-discovery is a true delight. Not just because their chemistry lights up the pages, but also because the characters are lively, amusing and utterly relatable. Lu and True are both in their 40s but still burdened by past pain. From Coney Island rides to desert campers and from bungee jumps to casinos they find hope, healing, and true love in their quest for Keanu. Hilariously fun, I loved everything about this wonderful rom-com adventure!

Keanu has been my love since I was little & while I don’t approve of someone else thinking they get to marry him (supposed to be me, duh) I did love the concept of this book! Funny & sweet! A fav!

This rom-com was so sweet and endearing that I was grinning ear to ear. Lu and True have been besties for ever but things changed on their road trip to meet Lu’s celebrity crush Keanu Reeves.

I thought this was so cute! It was such a fun friend's to lovers story and I really love the way True and Lu build off of each other. It was a little slow at points but overall I enjoyed!
Absolutely loved this book. Funny, witty very relatable characters! Also, the book shows how easy it is to miss what's right in front of us when our heads are stuck in the clouds.
