At this moment, you are more open-minded than you will ever be again. As you get older, your interests might deepen, but the range will almost certainly narrow. Fight this as hard as you can.
Over the next decade, you will probably be able to count on one hand the number of times you will sit in…
I love and adore you and will listen to you talk about whatever you’re studying at Yale for days on end.
In all seriousness, this book is sometimes too cheesy and others just right. Hadley and Oliver meet on a plane that’s flying to London, share their life story, and a little bit more. Hadley has a lot of issues with his father, which while justified, feel so heavy-handed at times. By the end of the book, everything is corrected and swept under the rug between her and her father, which was really my only big issue. One big messy day doesn’t change a person that much and make them that accepting, but since this book only follows a span of 24 hours, I understand trying to have a happy ending for everyone.
Oliver is all of those things a girl loves in a guy: smart, funny, charming, mysterious enough without putting you off, and British. Accents are always a plus. I found myself more attracted to his character and story, especially since he was such a foil to Hadley. I wish there had been a POV given to his character, if only to flesh the story out more and make you feel the love at first sight idea perspective from both characters.
If you want something quick, short, and sweet, this book is perfect. If anything, it’ll definitely make you want to embrace your encounters with people in airports. ;)
