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

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. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother 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 sitting in her row.

A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?

Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

Woo, what a title! The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, by Jennifer E. Smith was a really sweet, engaging story. It was a quick read. The cover, absolutely adorbs and very fitting to the book.

Missing your flight by 4 minutes sucks. So, whaddya do to past time until your next scheduled flight? Well, we know at least one thing. Be on time for that flight!

In the mean time, you can slobber over the friendly, hot British dude whose imperfections make him perfect. Or continue to sulk over that dreadful wedding you can't be late for, or the spat you had earlier with your mom. - but I mean, hot British dude that you met at the airport and boards same flight as you can totally take your mind off that, for now.

Statistically, I could totally see this happening. You really can get to know someone on a 7 hour flight. And most definitely I do believe in love at first sight.

The comfort Oliver provided to Hadley on the plane was genuine. It was a pleasure to read how he was able to understand the disappointment she'd suffered from and calm her nerves. And one underlined verse in a book can make realization sink in. If you let it.

But, there were times when he was at unease. Perhaps they have something in common? Would Hadley discover what it was?

Ding. 7 hours were up and Hadley and Oliver had to go their separate ways. Made me pout a bit. Where do they go from here? What would Hadley discover about Oliver? Someone does always have it worse than you.

I found that Hadley had a hard time in letting go of her family past in order to move on with the future. It would be good to see her open up to new family memories.

This story was surrounded around chance. Two people meet up at a certain time in their life, grieving for their different reasons. And now, they have the other to hold. And to make a new beginning.

I'm not keen on third person single POVs, and for the body of the story, I wished it had more endearment, but the story was charming enough to continue my read.
