P L E A S E  R E A D :

This romantic comedy will be dramatic at a time earlier than what is classically accepted, as this story contains satirical elements. That's the epicenter of its humorthe satire. You'll be surprised multiple times, and you'll be frustrated with the characters tons. There's an arc early in the story that doesn't seem to make sense, and there are suspicious employers. There's a lot of reading between the lines that sometimes the lines overlap until there's no more left to read.

There are many kinks in the story, some of which I'd like to revamp and others I'd like to replace with more meaningful text. But that's for later.

So this is a warning. If you read on from here, the writing will irritate you, the characters will infuriate you, and the plot arcs will confuse you. Should you choose to read on, don't say I didn't warn you :P

TL;DR: Keep in mind that apart from this story being satire (as you'd see in the tags!), it also has problematic undertones, and I've yet to do thorough editing/rewriting!

          Meet Mia: The twenty year old frustrated writer hermit who can't get published. Apparently, she has a knack for cracking computer codes, but that's not enough to keep her landlord from kicking her out when she hasn't paid her rent for four consecutive months. With no friends to help her out and not enough money to last her a day, where does she go?

          Meet Finn: The cold, expressionless, young business bachelor, heir to tycoon company Laurel-Tech. He only cares about business, business, and business. Don't step in his way, unless of course you have a death wish.

          When these two meet thanks to a coffee shop and a younger cousin who should really receive a whack on the head, sparks fly . . . of the why'd you spill coffee all over me/you are so going to regret what you did kind.

          They're worlds apart, and this isn't high school, so how the hell did Mia end up renting Finn's mansion? And—hold your breath—becoming his fake girlfriend?

          Find out in none other than the romantic comedy—How to Fall in Love.
