The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by: Jennifer E. Smith
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's sitting in her row.
A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?
Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
Even though it was all predictable I loved the story. Girl meets boy in airport, which in turn he ends up following her (creepy) but he wants to help her out. All in all they talk, they split and some how come back together again.
The story is set over a twenty-four hour period which within that time frame you are getting a lot of information. Hadley is a normal teenager who is going to be with her father for his wedding. She doesn't like it at all, and she makes it known. I have never had to experience anything like Hadley has but I could understand her anger towards him and to me it felt justified. I really enjoyed how Oliver seems a bit mysterious he isn't just this boy who throws everything out there. He has secrets that Hadley gets him to open up to which is cool. Oliver is someone in the book world that you would fall over heels for he is more of just an average guy. Nothing too special.
Now I want to say there was more with this story but there really isn't I got more of Hadley and her father trying to reconcile with each other after what he did to her mother. That is more of the story, than a love at first sight.
Quick read, that was mildly enjoyable.
