I was going to tell him just how much he meant to me. What could possibly go wrong?


Beth Prince has always loved fairy tales and now, aged 24, she feels like she’s finally on the verge of her own happily ever after. She lives by the seaside, works in the Picturebox – a charming but rundown independent cinema – and has a boyfriend who’s so debonair and charming she can’t believe her luck!


There’s just one problem – none of her boyfriends have ever told her they love her and it doesn’t look like Aiden’s going to say it any time soon. Desperate to hear ‘I love you’ for the first time, Beth takes matters into her own hands – and instantly wishes she hadn’t.


Just when it seems like her luck can’t get any worse, bad news arrives in the ilishly handsome shape of Matt Jones. Matt is the regional director of a multiplex cinema and he’s determined to get his hands on the Picturebox by Christmas.


Can Beth keep her job, her man and her home or is her romantic-comedy life about to turn into a disaster movie?
