The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (Book Review)

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. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that 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 in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A. 
Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.
I must admit, I was in the perfect frame of mind to read this. I had just finished reading the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. That series I read in about a week and left me sort-of drained emotionally. I really just wanted an easy romance novel that wasn't complicated or hard to follow and just would make me feel all lovey-dovey inside. I found that in this novel.
In my head this book really played out as a movie of utter perfection. Although the novel only takes place within 24 hours, there were points where I felt that the relationship just wasn't moving fast enough between Hadley and Oliver. Throughout the entire book, I was rooting for them.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight isn't a complex romance. It's not meant to make you think hard about life and the universe. This book is perfect for anyone who just wants something to make them feel good. And it does have a good lesson or two in there. (Bonus points anyone?)
5 points out of 5 :)
