The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Paperback, 236 pages
Hadley is four minutes late for the plane that’s supposed to take her England for her father’s wedding. In the airport, she meets a boy. A perfect boy. A boy who saves her from having to spend the hours waiting for the next flight and the hours on the plane alone. The entire story takes place in one day and begs the question: what are the odds of falling in love at first sight?
While I’m not ususally a fan of romance (which is why I read it for #bookgapchallenge), I enjoyed this one. Hadley is a dynamic character who seems to be particularly self-aware. She’s also angry, but open enough to allow herself to change. Oliver seems a little too perfect (though not completely perfect) in the “knight in shining armor” role, but he’s also filtered through Hadley’s perspective, so that makes sense. It was a nice (lighter) read. Something I needed to jumpstart my reading again. I give this one two enthusiastic romantic reading thumbs up.
