Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

I have to say this was a super cute story, and I honestly didn't expect the way it turned out, but it was cute!

For me, I actually really enjoyed that the author dove into their background life and yet somehow merged them both together at the same time. I thought it was really cool to see how even though both of their lives are in different directions, they weave so well together. I also liked how even a small character like the security woman who checks Natasha's bags had an impact as well.

Personally, I do wish there was something that was a bit more into the book to really grab me in the swoony feels! I think it's kind of hard, considering it's literally in one day that they're meeting, but I would've totally loved it if it could've been strung out a bit more.

This was definitely emotional, between the things Natasha is going through as well as Daniel, I could really feel the connection there! I also enjoyed the writing style, and even if you don't believe in love at first sight, the author definitely made me believe it!

Although the ending was super sweet, I felt like it would've been so much nicer had there been more to what actually happened between the time, because I felt like part of that was just... gone.

Overall this was a super cute, and definitely emotional story between two characters that just so happen to meet on the streets of New York City.

That's all for my review, I hope you enjoyed it!

Until the next time, Keep Reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm!! :)
