I'm reading through the Genrenauts omnibus, but reviewing each novella on its own as well. I read them all as early drafts, and now I get to enjoy the polished versions.

I am not really a fan of romantic comedies. They seem so contrived, to me more unreal than fantasies with magic and dragons. That said, I love how Underwood utilizes and twists rom-com tropes in this adventure. His Genrenauts leave our world (Prime) and travel to genre-themed story worlds, where off-kilter events cause ripple effects on Earth. In this case, something is seriously wrong in Romance--where happily-ever-afters are a requirement. This episode fully introduces Mallery, a member of the Genrenauts team who has been out with injuries, and her chemistry with lead character Leah really zings.

It's really fun to see how Underwood pays homage to genre tropes. Here, his characters in the Romance version of New York City rent an ultra swanky apartment for almost nothing, and have the ability to summon a cab within a matter of seconds. The food is also spectacular beyond belief. It makes for an amusing romp--a light, fast read, which was exactly what I needed as I fought a migraine! ( )
