It’s Fallon’s last day in California, as she is moving to New York. She’s out to lunch with her arrogant actor father and having a rough time of it. Fallon’s face and left side were burned in a fire a couple of years before while she was staying with her dad. Her father tries to convince her that she can no longer have a career as an actor and even brings up the fact that she no longer even dates. Cringe worthy! When Ben steps in and pretends to be her boyfriend in order to get her father to lay off her, it begins an odyssey for both Fallon and Ben.
Both characters are eighteen and Ben is a college student/writer. Fallon had starred on a television show, but lost the job after the fire. November 9 is now, both the anniversary of the fire, and of their meeting. They spend the day together and each realizes that they have found someone special. They agree to meet on each November 9, until they are twenty three. Twenty three because that’s the age her mother thinks most people know what they want in life. So they agree to a pact-no phone calls, no numbers, no social media,or emails exchanged. Nothing but waiting for the next year.
The premise was different, and although there are similar book/movies out there, this one was a completely different type of story.Of course, I haven’t even delved into half of what happens in this read. Things aren’t always as they seem and sometimes people harbor huge secrets-the kind of secrets that are life changing. Sometimes, people can be completely wrong in their estimation of another person and that is explored as well. The book jumps in time from one November 9th, to the next.
Fallon and Ben were fascinating characters. Both have flaws and both have things that cause them angst.They are real in their feelings for each other, but as in life, five years can bring many changes and does for both.The reader is witness to all the changes in both of their lives, and to the deepening of their feelings for each other. What maddened me at times was that they go so long without being able to call or contact each other-relying on others to do so when needed and only on November 9th. In that respect, it was kind of unbelievable for me and had me practically yelling at my book at times.
Hoover’s writing is nothing short of amazing as can be expected from a #1 New York Times bestselling author. If you enjoy having all the “feels” in a read, this one definitely measures up, and in a big way.There’s a beautiful romance here, but the reader has to go through some major turmoil at times to get to the end. I think I loved every minute of the journey.
Highly recommended adult read.
I'll be honest here and say that I was reading and about halfway in - I was about to throw in the towel. I kept asking myself "Why is everyone so in love with this book?" and then at 58% - It hit me! It slammed right into me when I wasn't looking. My heart ached. I couldn't breath and my tears were flowing. That's the moment I KNEW this book was going to be amazing.
I had been hit by a train and even behind the tears in my eyes I continued to read. I kept saying to COHO - "How could you do this to me?".... because she can hear all of us while we read her books....right?
Just when I had come to terms with the events that happened. Around 78% I was hit again and took me by complete surprise! My heart was ripped out 100 % this time and I knew COHO wasn't' giving it back. Twice now! I was aching... I was crying again......and I tried to piece it back together. I wasn't sure what I felt at this point. As much as I was mad - it was a game changer. I grabbed what was left of my heart and my emotions and carried on. I read thinking that whether these two got their HEA or not. I had to continue. I had to know what happens. THREE TIMES! Three times and you are OUT! COHO sucker punched me a third time from left field! Evil.... yes COHO...Evil =) And no matter how many times she hit me.... and how many times I sat there stunned with an aching heart and tears flowing like faucets. I knew that all of this led to their ending......and ending that left me with hope that if and when we meet those characters again on the Next November 9 that our hearts will be happy and that everything they went through together will have been worth it. That Nov 9 is now a day of Happiness.
This story is going to make you sad and cry! Be prepared. We've all felt this before when reading a COHO book. It's a story about two people whose lives cross paths and each year something new about themselves is revealed while you read. It's about loving, losing, healing and forgiving.
Can two people become friends? Fall in love? Overcome some obstacles that are meant to tear each of them down? Do Ben and Fallon get a HEA like in the books Fallon reads? In my mind I was left not knowing.....Will their story continue? Or are we left with only our imagination?
This story had EPIC first kisses...a Book BF worthy Alpha Male...Epic Goodbyes........ it gave me ALL THE FEELS! ALL OF THEM! It's full of angst - love - heartache- twists & turns. It's told in dual POV and I loved that.
This book is Totally worth every FIVE star review it gets. Click It Up! You won't be sorry! Especially if you love a good cry and a book full of every emotion possible! Definitely one that I wish to unread - just to read all over again for the first time.
Colleen Hoover gets me once again with this book. She has quickly become an author that I can count on to deliver each and every time, without fail. I look forward to the release of every one of her books as if they are an old friend coming to visit. I know that I will have a few enjoyable and entertaining hours ahead of me.
I finished this book in one sitting. It was that good and that easy to read. I don't think I will ever look at November 9th the same way again. In fact, keeping with the theme of the book, I think I may have to re-read it every year on November 9th because I will certainly be thinking about it.
I know I've said it a million times before but Hoover captures the emotions of her characters like no other. The reader is able to feel the emotions that are oozing off the pages. The attraction between Fallon and Ben is penned beautifully and as the reader you are drawn in from the very first word. I don't know how else to describe it. Hoover has the ability to really make you feel her characters. She also writes male characters like no other. Ben is no exception.
I laughed, I cried and I sighed a lot as I devoured this book. It was emotionally charged and there were a couple shocking twists as well. One I had figured out but I didn't see the other one coming. Man oh man...what a twist.
I also loved the whole book theme that was going on. The book related banter between Fallon and Ben was cute and it made me smile a lot. Book lovers will get a real kick out of it.
I loved everything about this book and I won't soon forget it!

I really liked the concept of this book and I don’t want to give to much of the plot away. I got hooked from the start and got through it so quick, I love Colleens writing.
I love both characters they were witty and tensor with each other but also helping each other grow as people and your rooting for them from the beginning. It is insta love which is referenced in the book but it didn’t annoy me as much as it normally does.
Things obviously don’t go smoothly and there is a couple of decisions Ben makes which I wasn’t a massive fan off. and the plot twist I didn’t expect and I felt it did lesson them as a couple. Other then that I overall did really enjoy this book.
November 9 follows the story of Fallon & Ben. Fallon was a successful actress until she suffered severe burns in a house fire and is left wondering what to do with her life. Ben stumbles upon Fallon when she is having an argument with her Father in a restaurant, Ben takes it upon himself to pretend to be Fallon's boyfriend and defends her from her Father's harsh words. From there on in they make a pact to meet every November 9th as they get on so well. No spoilers here.. you'll have to read it yourself to find out what happens.
Just outstanding though Colleen, from page 1 until the very end it kept my attention and had me laughing and then on the verge of tears. So good, I'm lost for words at what else to say!
On to the next one!
I really enjoyed meeting Ben and Fallon. He was great, fast thinking action when he first meets her in the restaurant.
I also loved Fallon immediately, she may have had the stuffing knocked out of her, but she had some guts.
I loved how it came full circle. The point of view were originally from Fallon's perspective, actually not quite true, we also got Ben's POV during their Nov 9 meetings.
The really got on well, has a connection which we discover how deep as we go on their relationship journey.
He is so encouraging and they both make choices based on their circumstances with some big consequences.
I loved that we got to know them both, but wish we might have had more in their daily lives.
The date held so much significance, which we learn throughout the story, how they both deal with the evidence placed in from of them each time they meet, how they deal with the aftermath.
Ben has had a lot of heartache in his young life, and maybe dealt with some situations in the wrong way, but it made him appear more humble and very caring.
They were both really great together Ben was so caring, understanding, encouraging and if I'm honest both were a tad selfish. Fallon was also understanding, maybe a bot of an over thinker, older than her years. They both hid self pity and slowly each other helped alleviate this.
Oh the plot twists, the curveballs you dis in this story along the way, had my emotions all over the place.
I purposely took my time reading this, and now I'm finished I am glad I did, If I had read through it fairly quickly I might have missed some areas.
Ben was dealt with more than his fair share of death, and i think he is also stronger because of it, which becomes very apparent coupled with the life changing meeting with Fallon. His POV of events WOW, just WOW.
This is not just a will they? won't they? it is also about both of them on the road of self discovery and accepting their fate.
There were times when I wanted to give them both a slap upside the head and times when I wanted to grab them both in a hug.
Really pleased with the ending.
A BIG FIVE STARS for this book.
