I love romcoms (or romedies).  But the main character, Chloe Sanderson has so many challenges in her life that it was kind of bleak.  I got tired just reading about all the ways she cares for those around her and how she doesn't trust anyone to help her with those burdens.  This is too bad because quirky Chloe is really quite charming and I liked her.  But the contradictions got in my way.

From the publisher:
What happens when your life is a rom-com...but you don't even believe in true love?

Chloe Sanderson is an optimist, and not because her life is easy. As the sole caregiver for her father, who has early onset Alzheimer's, she's pretty much responsible for everything. She has no time—or interest—in getting swept up in some dazzling romance. Not like her best friend Annie, who literally wrote a rom-com that's about to premiere in theaters across America...and happens to be inspired by Chloe and Nick Velez, Chloe's cute but no-nonsense boss.

As the buzz for the movie grows, Chloe reads one too many listicles about why Nick is the perfect man, and now she can't see him as anything but Reason #2: The Scruffy-Bearded Hunk Who's Always There When You Need Him. But unlike the romance Annie has written for them, Chloe isn't so sure her own story will end in a Happily Ever After.

I'll have to remember this one when I'm looking for lighter fare. (I've been pretty heavy lately.)
