Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.
<— Me while reading…
“STOP PLAYING WITH MY FEELINGSSSS!!”
This book will make you laugh, annoyed, angry, in love, and heartbroken. It will also make you want to stop reading because you can’t just contain all the feels. But you’ll keep reading because you want to know what happened between Ben and Fallon.
The way the story is told is also new to me and it made me kept reading cos you know, they just meet once a year.
I like that Ben helped Fallon build her confidence again. And Fallon helped Ben make his life better. Because of each other, they pursued their dreams and find themselves.
THIS IS THE EPITOME OF ROLLER COASTER OF EMOTIONS IN A BOOK!!! I swear. That is what I’ve felt when I’m reading. Hands down to Colleen Hoover. That plot twist of the plot twist of another plot twist got me.
I read reviews before reading this book so I can guard my heart just in case… But the reviews I’ve read didn’t give any clue of what’s going to happen. My friends in bookstagram just kept saying that it’s going to break my heart. And, the first chapter seemed fine and light.
But guys, don’t back off on this book because all the feels will be worth it! ❤ This proved that not all men just sees the physical appearance, but the inside.
“He’s oblivious to his many flaws, whereas mine are the focal point of my life.” -Fallon
“If we’re going to kiss, it has to be book-worthy.”
“So just because I like reading about those kinds of guys, doesn’t mean I need my real-life guys to act like that.”
“If she’s not careful, I might just fall in love with her.”
“It’s not awkward, Ben. It’s cute. You’re in love.”
“It took four years for me to fall in love with him. It only took four pages to stop.”
“But we do get to choose how hard we’re willing to work in order to make the best of what we’re given.”
“And yes, you have scars. But anyone who sees your scars before they see you doesn’t deserve you.”
