Nick and Noah are two high-powered personalities unexpectedly thrown together by a chance airport meeting which quickly spirals. With this endearing couple, whose chemistry is off-the-chains, serendipity has definitely smiled. From word 'go', their attraction is immediate, but also so earthy, solid, and, on so many levels, 'admirable'. The reader is sucked into their love story in a way which almost feels like therapy, because you know with this author things are going to get deep.
Despite the evident difficulties this relationship faces, leading to some measure of anxiety, the author has a way of soothing the reader along with the story, by calmly strengthening and adding further depth to both the characters and the story itself. This is a real gift, which Christina C. Jones' always manages with a skillful aura of 'positive' soulful writing. This latest installment comes highly recommended.
Noah and Nick meet at the airport by chance. Someone bumps into Nick and spills his coffee and Noah, seeing that he looks to be having a bad day, goes over to help him clean up. A little eye contact, a surprising kiss....and the journey begins.
Both come home to find their social media blowing up. Why? Well, Noah is a popular social media celebrity who promotes positivity, self care, enrichment and confidence for all...but especially women. And Nick is an up and coming director/producer. Followers are buzzing about a pic someone posted of their airport kiss.
And that's all I'm giving you on the plot! Because I thought I knew where this was going after that set up, but the author gives SO MUCH MORE and that surprise is not anything I'm willing to ruin.
This book feels so REAL. That's the best way to describe it. Long distance relationships are hard, but throw in other important factors, and it's easy to second guess things. Especially when past experiences want to overshadow the potential of something great.
"We can sit here and play 'what if' all night, right? But it's not going to change the fact that there are risks in every relationship."
And see that right there? That's the type of open and honest communication that is at the heart of this book. Nick and Noah talked....I mean they TALKED. About everything. About important issues, about the mundane...about compromise and growth. About how life's lessons are constantly changing who we are. But not a single conversation felt preachy or boring.
This book sincerely feels like being a voyeur on the journey of two people starting something truly special. Watching it unfold, seeing them begin to realize it...it gave me all the happy butterflies.
...neither of us thought we were in love, but there was this underlying sense that if we let it happen, we would find ourselves there.
If there's one disappointment I have with this book it's that there really isn't much online communication. Nowhere near what I was expecting based on the blurb (in fact, there's very little beyond their initial introduction). There are a few mentions of late night text marathons and phone calls, but we aren't shown them....which really bums me out.
Now, if you'll excuse me...I’m off to pick up Christina C. Jones's backlist!! I need more...more of her words, more of her characters...more of her stories!!
