Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.

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.

Hmm… As most of you know I’m a huge fan of Colleen Hoover. I love her books. For the most part.

The Slammed series was ah-maz-ing and also The Hopeless series was too. I have to say Hopeless and Losing Hope are my favorite books by her. I know without a doubt that at some point in the future I will read all of those books again.

Fast forward to Maybe Someday. The plot was intriguing and characters were well developed. I liked the idea of a companion music CD was also released. Although, I must say… I didn’t purchase it.

Then comes Ugly Love. I loved this one too. Miles Archer was a very interesting hero. And in case you haven’t heard. Ugly Love is going to be made into a movie. Nick Bateman will play Miles Archer. I think he’s a good fit.

Confess released next. O.M.G. has a new meaning in this book. It’s the initials for the hero. Owen Mason Gentry. He’s an amazing hero. One I was completely smitten with right from the beginning. The plot was unique and I loved pretty much everything about this book.

And finally we have Ms Hoover’s newest release. November 9. Once again the plot is unique, but sadly it’s a bit predictable. I’m not sure I was sold on the whole “only meeting once a year” idea. Again while it’s unique, I don’t think it’s realistic. A lot can happen in a year. 365 days is a long time.

As far as the characters go, I liked both the hero and heroine. I think Ben was good for Fallon’s self-esteem. At times he seemed older then he was. More mature then the average young twenty-something.

For the most part, I liked this book. I can’t say I loved it. It’s not one of my favorite’s by Ms Hoover, but still an enjoyable read.

About Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover’s love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled “Mystery Bob” and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.
Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, “Slammed.” She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT’s bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT’s bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term “author” still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn’t work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.
