The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you've probably seen me mention how excited I am for this release. The cover is gorgeous, the plot is adorable and perhaps more importantly, it lived up to my expectations.

Hadley has absolutely no idea just how much of a difference missing her flight has made on her life until she meets Oliver, her knight in shining armor--although she doesn't see it like that at first. Over the next twenty-four hours, she'll fall in love, attending a wedding that she's been dreading, and learn that love at first sight is a real possibility.

If anything, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (asides from being a mouthful to say) is proof that instant love can work--in the plot. But Statistical Probability is more than just romance, it's also Hadley dealing with her father and the wedding that she's been forced into attending. And really? I feel that I've told you everything that I can about Statistical Probability without giving you serious spoilers. It was an adorable read; sweet without being nauseatingly sweet and if you don't mind instant love, it's definitely a book that I'd recommend to you. It takes place within twenty-four hours and the ending is absolutely perfect. Yes, it might feel a little open ended, but considering the story and the title, it is a perfect ending in my opinion.

Overall Rating: ★★★★★

Favorite Quote:
But Hadley understood. It wasn’t that she was meant to read them all. Maybe someday she would, but for now, it was more the gesture itself. He was giving her the most important thing he could, the only way he knew how. He was a professor, a lover of stories, and he was building her a library in the same way other men might build their daughters houses.”
