Melbourne Writers Festival director and rom-com fan Lisa Dempster said: "I loved this manuscript. It’s really sharp and I like the satirical elements… Line by line, the writing is fantastic and funny."
Adam, a serious cinema nerd, has no idea that he is the Hot Guy – a man so ridiculously attractive there’s a Facebook group dedicated to seducing him. Cate, a sports publicist who loves to crack a joke, is feeling down about her newly single status when her friends suggest the perfect pick-me-up: a night with the Hot Guy.
But that one night leaves both Cate and Adam wanting… Is a genuine connection possible with a guy this phenomenally smokin’? Written by film critic duo Mel Campbell and Anthony Morris, and packed with movie-related humour, The Hot Guy is a funny, warm, savvy, and genuine rom-com, with characters you won’t want to kick out of bed.
