This novel was absolutely wonderful. I feel like you never really know what you are getting with a Colleen Hoover book other then a book that will be phenomenal in every way. This novel is by far my favorite from her yet. I was guessing and rooting for this couple page after page.
Favorite Quote: "As smooth as I tried to be, I didn't ease into this girl's life with the discreet grace of a fox. I barged into it with the subtly of a fifteen-thousand-pound elephant."
This novel is a whole genre of its own. Not often do you read a love story where the characters only spend one day together every year. One day. One day a year. That is it.
This type of a book takes perfect crafting to still be gripping and feel like the characters have a chance, and it did that in spades. It was absolutely wonderful. Each time the characters got back together I felt like it was FINALLY it! I felt like they were finally going to be able to have their happily ever after and that Fallon would just stop her yearly thing and give in! But alas, that didn't make for the best story and it wasn't what was in store for us. What we got was SO much better.
I felt like this story really took all the greatest parts of Colleen's other novels and made a new breed of book. This book had everything in it. The angst, the love, the secrets, the epic dialogue, and even better, it had characters you can't help but love.
I adored it. Perfection. Ben and Fallon were the type of characters that you want to know everything about. They made you want to know all their secrets and to just keep pushing for them, and that is exactly what you do while they are reading.
A definite 5 star read. Don't miss it.
