Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Imagine if she hadn’t forgotten the book. Or if there hadn’t been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn’t fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she’d run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else - the weather over the Atlantic or a fault with the plane?
Hadley isn’t sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it’s the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver...
Oh my god you guys, this is one of the cutest books I have ever read! I actually read this book WAY before I read This is What Happy Looks Like, which I reviewed in January, but somehow I never wrote a review for The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. What was I thinking?!
When Hadley asks Oliver to watch her suitcase while at the airport, the story takes off. They don't know eachother, but they somehow immediately click, even though Hadley appears a bit weary to trust the handsome stranger who is entirely too willing to help her.
While this books deals with the whole dreaded instalove thing, it really didn't bother me while reading it. I felt like they actually got to know eachother on their flight and even before that a bit. It doesn't appear like they dive in headfirst. I actually got the idea that both Hadley and Oliver are sure they'll never see eachother after their flight.. But for serious guys, Hadley and Oliver have amazing chemistry. They just click. Like, they are still getting to know eachother, but they already have these sort of inside jokes. In everything they say and do it's obvious that they have chemistry and I loved how that made its way off the pages. Stamp of approval!
The only thing I didn't really like were the 'flashbacks' to the past. I just wanted to get back to their present, because Oliver was there and I loved these character's interaction so much. I don't think I would ever get enough of that because it was seriously cute.
I debated with myself if I wanted to give it a 4.5 rating because it's so adorable and cute and fluffy, but I think this 4 stars is sufficient. Don't get me wrong, I adored this book. Seriously. If you only remotely like cute contemporaries, you need to check this one out. It may be only 215 pages, but it's 215 page of adorable. Trust me.
