The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith Review

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.
My Thoughts:
2.5/5 Stars
This was a cute book about love at first sight.
It's a about a girl flying overseas for a wedding and a boy flying overseas to deal with family obligations. When they bump into one another in the airport and end up sitting next to each other, conversation flows. They learn about each other and a connection is formed. They go their separate ways, but somehow end up together.
I had high expectations for this book because my husband and I met on a plane. With that being said this book was just okay for me. I understand it is about love at first sight, but some of what happened was just not believable.
I did like the characters though. Hadley was sweet and confident and Oliver... Oh Oliver was smart, handsome, and witty! He had a way with words. He knew exactly what to say at the right time. Sometimes what he said made no sense and sometimes it was too smart for his own good.
The storyline was sweet. Hadley reunites with her father and love proves to be strong enough to push you to chase after people.
Overall I would recommend this book to any reader looking for a quick, romantic read.
