Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
Adorable meet-cute between Stella and Beau in an airport that turned into witty banter through texting and meaningful conversations through phone calls. This relationship was just too cute and it all happened while they were thousand of miles apart. I loved it!!
Such an adorable idea and I loved this couple for all of their sweet moments, but it was unique because they made it happen when they weren’t even in each others presence. In today’s world with all of the technology it probably happens more often than we realize, but on paper this story could have run dry pretty quick. However, Rebecca did a great job of keeping the story engaging and moving right along. I also liked how it bracketed Holly’s story, filling in bits and pieces along the timeline, but still reading as a complete standalone if you so choose.
It was supposed to be a quick conversation with a cute boy at the airport while I dodged my ex and his new girlfriend.
We weren’t supposed to trade numbers.
He wasn’t supposed to be a football player.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to fall for him since he’s attending a college a thousand miles away.
I saw past his jersey. And he saw past my last name.
Now it’s semester break, and by some Christmas miracle, he’s going to be close. So close.
I want to meet him again, but there’s just one problem.
My older brother can’t, under any circumstances, find out I’m dating his rival.
Best read after book one, Snowed In with the Player, but can be read as a standalone.
