A cute story about fate and family; this book gave me a greater understanding of divorce and its effects with a love story sprinkled in.

Initial Impressions 9/3/12: Super cute and quick read. I love love-at-first-sight stories, but only if done well so I was glad this one was done right! Everything flowed so seamlessly and the story just fell into place. I also really love how it was resolved. It just seemed like the perfect ending!

Full review originally posted on The Book Addict's Guide: This story was so cute! I love love-at-first-sight stories as long as they're done right, and Jennifer E Smith definitely hit the nail on the head with this one. I felt like the story flowed seamlessly from beginning to end. I definitely fell into Hadley's story immediately and I really enjoyed her connection with Oliver. Even though it was love at first sight, I actually didn't feel like it was insta-love. They had an instant attraction and they started building a relationship through Hadley's incessant teasing about Oliver's British references and Oliver's quirky sense of humor and sarcasm.

I really liked how Hadley's story with her father and her soon-to-be stepmom developed as well. I was a little unsure about that storyline when it started because there seemed to be quite a bit of animosity from Hadley towards her father. I really did like the way everything was resolved and came together in the end.

I also really liked that the book was nice and concise. I've been reading tons of books that are in the high 300 to 400 page range so it was refreshing to pick up a book that fit perfectly in the span of 236 pages. I think any longer and it would have been too long and it was great to be able to finish so quickly and not feel overwhelmed with the size of the book since that does happen on occasion.

Also, I really love the cover! I just think it's super cute and really catches the eye!
