Double Decker Review

Double Decker Reviews is where I review two books in one post. Mainly because those books are in some way connected to each other; sequels, companions, etc. 

This edition of Double Decker Reviews brings you two books by author Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and This is What Happy Looks Like. Both books are stand alone novels.

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.(From GoodReads)

    I adored this book. It's just a simple, fun and totally cute love story. The kind of story that you just need to escape into once in while. It asks nothing of you and gives you everything in return. Plus, the main guy has an accent! Swoon! Lol. But seriously, if you're looking for a good love story or ever wondered if love at first sight truly exists then TSPoLaFS definitely worth your time.

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?

When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.

Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs? (From GoodReads)

    You guys, not to be cliche or anything, but THIS is what happy looks like. Seriously. I loved this book. Once again Jennifer E. Smith takes this crazy-random-happenstance and turns into a simple yet totally adorable love story. I think I loved this one more than Love at First Sight only because it had so many more sweet  "aw scenes" I guess is the best way to put it. You know, those scenes that just make you cheese all over from sheer adorableness. Yeah, those scenes.
 For example, a piece of conversation between our leading lady and her gentleman caller at the beginning of the book.

"Of course. Until tomorrow...
Wait, is that your way of saying good-bye without really saying good-bye?
No. Actually, I'm not quite sure I've finished saying hello yet.
Me neither. Hello.
Good Morning.
I already said that one.
Yeah, but it really is."

See? See?! Too cute, right? Maybe you'd have to have been there ... Anyways, if you liked TSPoLaFS then you NEED this book.

Good news for Jennifer E. Smith fans, she has another book coming out in this April! Yayyyy!!!
