“We are a triangle but our sides have kept changing length. Nothing has ever been equal.”– Josie Silver
Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story.
Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic…and then her bus drives away.
Certain they’re fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn’t find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they “reunite” at a Christmas party, when her best friend Sarah giddily introduces her new boyfriend to Laurie. It’s Jack, the man from the bus. It would be.
This book was absolutely riveting. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time wondering what was going to happen. Where Jack and Laurie going to end up together? Where they not?
I loved that it covered a span of 10 years, not just a few days, weeks, maybe months. It really showed character growth and development. Not only that but it altered between Jack’s POV and Laurie’s POV.
Each character had qualities that I loved, then hated, then loved again. Which shows exactly what life is like. We are not always on top, we all have our low times and this book shows just that.
Not only does it show the highs and lows of life, but it also shows the importance of friendship and love.
Overall, this is a great read that displays patience, trust, love and perseverance.
