Goodreads Synopsis: Four minutes changes everything. Hadley Sullivan misses her flight at JFK airport, is late to her father’s second wedding in London with never-met stepmother. Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row. A long night on the plane passes in a blink, but the two lose track in arrival chaos. Can fate bring them together again?
Don’t let the cover and title fool you! I went into this thinking it would be a cute gushy romance. It wasn’t. I mean it was cute, but it wasn’t Anna and the French Kiss cute, and there definitely wasn’t much of a romance.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (try to say that in one go) takes place over the course of twenty-four hours. The main character Hadley is quite bitter because she’s in an awkward situation where she has to be a bridesmaid in her father’s wedding. Her feelings for her “evil stepmother” were a bit cliché. The book focuses on Hadley and her relationship with her father.
I definitely want to know more about Oliver, and I wanted the book to be MUCH longer. The resolve was nice, but too sudden.
For such a short book, there was quite a bit of character development, and there were some parts that were pretty deep. My rating is low because it wasn’t what I was wanting it to be, and I just couldn’t connect with the characters.
I do plan on reading more of Jennifer E. Smith’s books in the future.
