When a one-night stand, a fake relationship, and a demonic cat aren’t enough of a challenge—just add a pandemic.
Sportswriter Katie McIntyre thinks star pitcher Jason Price will be the perfect fling to help her forget her cheating ex. Their hook-up is supposed to end with breakfast.
But the coronavirus has other plans.
When Katie unexpectedly becomes her grandmother’s full-time caretaker, the disoriented elderly woman thinks Jason is Katie’s devoted beau. Katie pitches a pretend relationship to the star athlete. Jason knocks the fake-boyfriend ball out of the park.
Before long, their increasingly real alliance is tested by disastrous cooking, adult-themed donuts, and a hairless, irascible cat. And COVID quarantine has a way of magnifying one small secret (Katie’s) and one tiny lie (Jason’s.) The harder this pair falls, the greater the risk of those hidden truths.
If your heartstrings have been tugged by the feel-good rom-coms Beach Read, Well Met, or The Friend Zone, then pull up a chair, because The C Word is the perfect romantic comedy escape for you.
When a grieving widow, a second-chance, enemies-to-lovers run-in at the beach, and producing a wildly popular TV show aren’t enough of a challenge—just add a pandemic.
Personal assistant Jen Parker is eager to take on a new job—supporting a temperamental world-famous chef during the filming of a reality TV show. But Jen has an ulterior motive: the show takes place mere miles from the North Carolina beach where her husband died ten years ago. Jen plans to mark the anniversary and finally move on.
Her best intentions, though, are turned upside down when she discovers that Drew Smith—her husband’s best friend—had the same idea. Jen and Drew have a past. Jen is determined they’ll never have a future.
That’s before the coronavirus disrupts everything. COVID quarantine rapidly raises the stakes on the reality TV set and beyond. Soon, Jen and Drew must work together to make the show succeed, even as old emotions churn to the surface. With the dreaded anniversary date approaching, this pair seems doomed.
If you fell hard for the feel-good rom-coms The Wedding Game, This Time Next Year, and The Hating Game, then grab a seat, because The F Word is the perfect romantic comedy escape for you.
