Publisher's summary

Winner of the 2024 Audie Award for Romance

Sparks fly when a romance writer and a documentary filmmaker join forces to craft the ultimate Hollywood love story—but only if they can keep the chemistry between them from taking the whole thing off script—from the “divine” (Jodi Picoult) New York Times bestselling authors of The Soulmate Equation and The Unhoneymooners.

Felicity “Fizzy” Chen is lost. Sure, she’s got an incredible career as a beloved romance novelist with a slew of bestsellers under her belt, but when she’s asked to give a commencement address, it hits her: she hasn’t been practicing what she’s preached.

Fizzy hasn’t ever really been in love. Lust? Definitely. But that swoon-worthy, can’t-stop-thinking-about-him, all-encompassing feeling? Nope. Nothing. What happens when the optimism she’s spent her career encouraging in readers starts to feel like a lie?

Connor Prince, documentary filmmaker and single father, loves his work but when his profit-minded boss orders him to create a reality TV show, putting his job on the line, Connor is out of his element. Desperate to find his romantic lead, a chance run-in with an exasperated Fizzy offers Connor the perfect solution. What if he could show the queen of romance herself falling head-over-heels for all the world to see? Fizzy gives him a hard pass—unless he agrees to her list of demands. When he says yes, and production on The True Love Experiment begins, Connor wonders if that perfect match will ever be in the cue cards for him, too.

“Full of big laughs, a few tears, and some seriously steamy scenes” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), The True Love Experiment is the book fans have been waiting for ever since Fizzy’s debut in the New York Times bestselling The Soulmate Equation.

Editorial Review

The perfect romance to kick off summer
It’s no secret around here that I’m a longtime CLo fan. They hooked me with their addicting series (plural), but for the past several years they’ve pivoted to delightful stand-alone rom-coms. The True Love Experiment is the first time that one of those rom-coms has gotten the spin-off treatment, and listeners: This might be my favorite Christina Lauren book. Ever. It stars Fizzy Chen, who we first met in The Soulmate Equation. Romance author extraordinaire, Fizzy has been in a bit of a rut … until she’s cast on a new dating show. Her chemistry, however, is strongest not with a contestant but with her seemingly surly producer. This listen is truly a love letter to romance fans, and once the story ends, you’ll hit play to hear Jonathan Cole and Cindy Kay perform it for you all over again. —Katie O., Audible Editor
