Love ’em and Leave ’em Alice Kim and “Hot” Steve Lowell are perfect for each other. It’ll only take them ten years to figure that out.

  • Just because they throw the most bodacious wedding party ever…

  • Just because they’re perfect partners in pranks…

  • Just because they love all the same boss movies…

  • Just because they share one totally bangin’ night of sex together…

  • Does not mean they’ll break the One Time Rule.

  • Even if they do… they don’t do relationships.

  • And they’re never getting married.

  • Like, ever.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "An entertaining love story with lots of fantastic, nostalgic references. Alice and Steve were perfect together, even if it took them 10 years to figure it out!" -- Catrina, Goodreads

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Overall, I loved "Like It's 1999" and highly recommend it for all fans of contemporary(-ish) romance and romantic comedy. I can't wait to see what's next for this author and series." -- Laurie Reads Romance

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Karen Grey has written a funny, feel-good novella that is themed perfectly to ring in the new year! I love how she intertwined epic movie quotes throughout the different years in the story. These quotes helped compliment Alice and Steve's love for movies and showed their congenial personalities. I'm looking forward to reading more from Karen and finding more characters to fall in love with!" -- Jodi, Goodreads

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This story is funny and sweet and sexy and transports you to the 1980's and 1990's. It keeps you guessing and wanting to shake Steve and Alice on more than one occasion. I loved it! I recommend this book and this series and this author without hesitation." -- Sally, Goodreads

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I really enjoyed this novella! I haven't read a lot of novellas lately but there is something really satisfying about being able to sit down and read an entire story in a single sitting. It is even better when that story features characters that can't wait to see again. When I found out that this story would focus on "Hot" Steve, I just knew that I had to read it and it was everything I had hoped it would be." -- Carole's Random Life in Books
