Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

"Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?"
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's sitting in her row.
A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?
Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

I have been hesitant to read this book since it was first released because of the title alone, but I got it for review from BookPeople and I loved it! It was your typical love story, with an interesting twist. Jennifer Smith did an amazing job with the story and making it a cute and good read.

Love it! When I first saw the cover, I thought that it was something I would like to read, but I the title actually drew me away from the story without even reading the summary. It was a mouthful, and I hate long titles.

The story was well written and kept you interested. Once she got to England though, I was bored. It seemed to just drag along and it wasn’t keeping my focus. The POV it was written in was very odd. It was third person limited and just confused me. It was a good story and made me do a fan girl squeal when I flipped to the last page and saw a great ending!

Hadley was a very angst ridden teenager. She was upset at her dad for getting remarried and had just missed her flight to England for her wedding when she meets Oliver. He slowly worms his way into her life over the course of a plane ride. I love the person who Hadley became after meeting Oliver, she let some of the angst go, and fought for what she thought was right.

Oliver was amazing! He was so sweet and refreshing. He was a gentleman and I loved him from the moment he offered to do something illegal for Hadley, which was watching her bag in the airport and then offering to carry it around for her. Oliver was hilarious and with most of his lines made me burst out laughing and look forward to flying alone! Haha, that sounds creepy.

All in All:
I loved this book. It was super cute, and sure it dragged for about 30 or 40 pages, but after that it turned out really good! If you are looking for a really cute summer romance book, pick up the Statistical Probability of Love at first sight. Wow, that’s a mouthful. J
