Nick is a drummer in a small band outside of New York City. The rest of his group is gay, so he is usually left on his own when it comes to their gigs. Nick spots his ex-girlfriend, Trish, in the crowd one night while at a gig. Trish dumped him hard and he's still sensitive about it, so when he sees her with her new boyfriend, he panics. He turns to the girl next to him and asks her if she'll pretend to be his girlfriend for five minutes.
Norah has no idea why Nick wants to pretend to be her boyfriend, but she sees Trish in the crowd--a girl from school--and kisses Nick in order to avoid speaking to her. She, of course, knows who Nick is--Trish complained about him all the time.
Little did they know what would start with one little kiss. And a night of adventures.
Fast-paced tale of the night club scene in New York, new love, old hurts, and everything inbetween. New relationships can lead to many misinterpretations, and this book has quite a few of them. Told from both Nick and Norah's points of view, this is a fantastic story.
And don't watch the movie--the movie was horrible.
