WHY? Why? Why? Why did I read the book so quickly? I wish I had savored it. I literally couldn’t put it down. I’m trying to calculate how long I need to wait to read the book again. I need to have enough time that when I read it again it will feel like a fresh story in my head. Unfortunately, a good story tends to stay stuck in my head for a long time.
Yes, I cried. Tears were streaming down my cheeks – a true sign of a 5 star book. I haven’t read a Colleen Hoover book where I haven’t ended up crying at some point (or many). At least I didn’t get caught reading/crying in public this time. I’ve learned that I need to read Colleen Hoover’s books in private.
Seriously, I loved how the story unfolded! It’s a wonderful book about being beautiful both inside and out, no matter what type of scars one holds.
Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.
Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?
