Super excited to be a part of my first Book Blitz so this is NOT a review! ! The book in question is If We Were a Movie the third installment of the Power of the Matchmaker series. The series follows 12 different, unrelated love stories with one common factor: Pearl, a mysterious immortal matchmaker who sets each love story in motion. I got the book on February 28th and finished it the next day. It’s perfect for people who love movies, music and books. Definitely check it out!

I handed Jordan the electric guitar that I’ve had since I was twelve, and laughed when her eyes got really big. “You play the electric guitar, too?”
“Music major,” I teased, picking up my keyboard. “I play this, too. A little. And the bass guitar.”
“Awesome.” She examined the electric guitar with awe.
“Why do you seem so surprised?”
She looked at me as if the answer to that question should be obvious. “Hello. Have you met yourself? You with an acoustic guitar singing soft songs around a campfire or in a coffee house makes perfect sense. But I can’t picture you up on a stage, jamming on your electric guitar like a rock star.” She studied me a moment, then shook her head. “You’ll have to play for me, or I’m not going to believe it.”
