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!
