Circling Back To You Summary
Cadence Lim has transformed from behind-the-scenes number cruncher to an integral part of the sales team at Prism Realty. But despite moving up the corporate ladder, her complicated relationship with her estranged elderly father weighs heavily and she can’t seem to shake the desire for a new beginning.
At least Cadence can always lean on her favorite co-worker and co-conspirator, Matt Escanilla. A top broker with an unsuccessful love life, the forever single Matt is constantly being nagged by his loving Filipino family to settle down.
Their relationship takes a turn when a business trip lands them both in their hometown and Matt enlists Cadence as a pretend girlfriend for a family gathering. The new after-hours setting forces the two friends to see each other in a new light, and their previously buried feelings rise quickly to the surface. When competing promotions threaten to separate Cadence and Matt, these office besties must work together to round up their ambitions and families to pursue their overdue romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping

Circling Back To You is a contemporary office rom com that started off strong but personally fell flat for me as I was reading the book. Even though this was a cute read, it didn’t deliver on the best friends to lovers and fake dating trope.
We have our two main characters Matt and Candence who both work at Prism Realty in cubicles right next to each other. Matt is a broker and Cadence is an analyst for the company. Cadence has had a crush on Matt for awhile but never acted on it because seems to be a ladies man in the office. A lot of people in the office are placing bets on when they would get together and jokingly call Matt Cadence’s work husband.
Through a deal with a potential client that seems like it won’t go through for Matt. Their boss orders them to go to their hometown for the new office and to solidify the deal with a potential client. Even though I feel that everything that Cadence can be done remotely, she was ordered to go to as well. On her vacation time which I personally would have said no to. Especially since she is complaining about her low pay and the lack of a bonus. Also she was dealing with the anniversary of her mom’s death. But there she goes to work on her vacation. I don’t understand why she needed to go, all the work she did. Could have been remote work like I said.
First off, the chemistry felt off between our two main characters Matt and Cadence. Other than their personal struggles with their family, you don’t get to see what really bonds the two other than they work cubicles next to each other in the beginning. When they finally hooked, the impression I got was. Okay, that happened.
Secondly, there essentially was supposed to be a fake dating trope. But all we got was Matt not really being straightforward with his Lola about the girlfriend situation. When he was boarding the flight, he just asked a favor if Cadence could just come with him to the family party. In return, he will give her the crossword puzzle answer and of course she agreed. There wasn’t really anything about Cadence agreeing to be a fake girlfriend to Matt’s family’s birthday party. Unless I missed it, they literally hooked up way before they went to the party so is this really technically a fake dating trope?
When they finally hooked up, there wasn’t really any angst about them finally getting together. Cadence claims that she wanted to take it slow, but it was literally the next day they hooked up after she kinda got drunk. So there was no build up to the situation when two people in rom coms finally get together. This book wasn’t totally terrible but it fell flat for me. I wish there was more to the fake dating and the best friends to lovers trope.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent RomCom

• Friends to Lovers
• Workplace Romance
• Family Dynamics / Expectations
• Forced Proximity
Circling Back To You was a fast, easy and satisfying friends to lovers, workplace romance romcom read that really hit the spot in terms of what I needed in a read. Some books you pick up and it just feels effortless to read – that was the case for me here, I picked it up and was caught up in the story and enjoying the escape it provided.
In this case Cadence and Matt both work for Prism a real estate company. Cadence is a very talented (and underappreciated) analyst and Matt is a fairly charismatic and ambitious, broker. An unexpected snag with a client leads to an extended work trip to Los Angeles for the two, where forced proximity kicks in for their work arrangement / extended stay arrangement. In addition, both Cadence and Matt’s families are based in the LA area – so worlds are colliding as the two navigate work, familial expectations and obligations and seeing each other in a new light.
I love a good romcom and while friends to lovers isn’t always my trope – apparently, I’m a sucker for the friends to lovers via office romance (a la Jim and Pam in The Office and the like). So needless to say, this was really working for me. I liked both Cadence and Matt – I thought they were interesting and complex characters, they felt very real because as in real life they had multiple facets to them and not all of them were ‘polished’ or pretty. I liked that they felt like relatable human beings who had flaws, struggles, differences and things to work through. I also appreciated the author’s ability to add this layer in to her characters without taking away the levity and heart of the story.
I enjoyed the Dual POV – it gave so much insight into each character and where their head was at throughout. I loved that though neither was perfect, this gave them both room to grow and adapt – and to get to know one another. I loved the forced proximity situation and the fact that it lent itself to easily fitting in time in both families.
My one wish is not integral to the story itself, but I would have been happy for some real comeuppance and consequences for Bill and Hunter. I know that wasn’t the focus, and unfortunately all too often in real life these things don’t have satisfying closure, but in a ‘perfect world’ I wanted both to be held accountable for their rude and disgusting behaviors. Overall, I found this to be a fun, satisfying romcom read and I look forward to more from Julie Tieu in the future.
