This Is What Happy Looks Like

Beginning with a spate of emails, Ellie and Graham "meet" each other online, chatting about a variety of things and revealing parts of themselves to a total stranger.  Ellie lives in a small town in Maine, a daughter to a single mother, while unbeknownst to her, Graham is a new teen heart-throb, living in California with his pet pig. 

The two never reveal their names, but Graham is able to find Ellie based on the information she shares in their correspondence.  He manages to have his newest movie filmed in Ellie's hometown, and the two meet for the firs time.

It isn't all smooth sailing as Ellie has her own secret she is keeping and can't afford to have her name in the news as Graham's new girlfriend. 

Although the probability of this story actually happening is slim to none, I loved it. It's a sweet summertime romance with a fun premise, a beautiful setting and likeable characters.  Pure enjoyment!

You described perfectly. It sounds sweet but unrealistic.
