Pinoy Movie x Book Match is back for the new year! And hey, faux relationship trope fans…this one is for you! ^_^ My first Pinoy Movie x Book Match for 2020 features the Piolo Pascual-Judy Ann Santos film Till There Was You.
I first read about Ili-likha Artists Village in 2016, while I was poking around the Internet for Baguio City finds. You see, I’ve been coming back to Baguio for summer and Christmas vacations since the late 1990s, and I’ve had my fill of horseback rides, bike rides, and visits to the usual tourists spots my parents would bring us to. So for the past several years, I was happy to just lounge around at our home in Kias, watching movies or reading books while enjoying the cool Baguio air.
Welcome to the #RomanceClass Take Three Project, where I give #romanceclass readers and authors a monthly prompt/question and ask them to list down and briefly discuss their top three answers. This July, we had a pop-up event at Pegi Waffles, San Juan that focused on meet-cutes — AKA that thing where the MC and LI meet for the first time and give you your first dose of feels — and I thought what better way to kick off this project than to talk about just that!
For this first Take Three Project post, three avid readers tell us their three favorite #romanceclass meet-cutes. Check in and see if they’re your favorites too! (In case you haven’t yet read the books being mentioned, I’ve included links so you can check them out on our website: romanceclassbooks.com.)
I thought a lot about what ~authorly thing I can do for Christmas that’s not a giveaway (because I think I might have done too many this year already) and came up with this–a weekly ebook freebie!
Cover reveal, check.
ARC kits, check.

I have consistently been posting about this little thing called #ProjectPio on my social media accounts since May, and today, I’m very proud to present its official title and cover!
Like Nobody’s Watching is my 8th book (if you include the anthologies I’ve been a part of, that is), and is a spin-off novel to Waiting in the Wings. Here’s it’s beautiful cover–which I specifically requested to “mimic” the look and feel of its predecessor–with magic provided by Fred Lo, Chi Yu Rodriguez (photography), and Miles Tan (digital painting/lettering/layout).
Like Nobody’s Watching
It’s all fun and games until someone catches feelings.
If there’s something Pio Alvez is good at, it’s pretending to be someone he’s not. On stage and on-screen, the actor has mastered the art of becoming the characters he plays, and his new role should be no different. After all, how difficult would it be to pretend to be smitten with a beautiful, intelligent go-getter like Audrey Alonzo?
Perhaps it’s more difficult pretending not to be.
Join Pio’s street team! Sign up for the ARC tour HERE. Thanks so much, and I can’t wait for you guys to meet Pio again! <3
