Good day and welcome to a new ~set~ of rom-coms from Netflix! Last night, the streaming service announced that they will be releasing new movies EVERY SINGLE WEEK, and my first flew, of course, to their romance lineup! Aaand based on this list, I can say that Netflix will NOT disappoint because these are the *cheesiest*, most kilig plots I've seen in a while:
1. The Last Letter From Your Lover
The plot: "A pair of interwoven stories set in the present and past, this movie follows Ellie Haworth, an ambitious journalist who discovers a trove of secret love letters from 1965 and becomes determined to solve the mystery of the forbidden affair at their center. As she uncovers the story behind Jennifer Stirling, the wife of a wealthy industrialist, and Anthony O'Hare, the financial journalist assigned to cover him, a love story of Ellie's own begins to unfold with the assistance of an earnest and endearing archivist who helps her track down more letters."

3. The Kissing Booth 3
The plot: "It's the summer before Elle heads to college, and she has a secret: She got into both Harvard, where her dreamy boyfriend Noah goes, and Berkeley, where her BFF Lee is going. Which path will Elle choose?"
