      This was a fun one! It didn't blow me away or anything, but it was cute and fast and entertaining and just what I was in the mood for!

    2. Lora on said:

      Honestly, for having a name like The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and a synopsis promising a British boy named Oliver, this book is pretty damn disappointing. Although it does deliver on the British boy front (who, frankly, really isn't even that great), it doesn't deliver much else.SPLFS starts off with Hadley Sullivan missing her flight to London at JFK. Granted, Hadley would rather see her dentist than attend her father's wedding to a woman she's never even met, but her fath [...]

      This is my second book of the year and the second I read during a sleepless night. The similarity ends there, unfortunately. While Split kept me up because it was so good I just HAD to finish it, this one well, it was only insomnia. And to think I was so eager to read it. See, I'm all for vanilla romance, it's light, relaxing and cute. But this book did not even remotely relax me.The premise is interesting. Hadley, on her way to London to attend her much dreaded father's wedding, misses her flig [...]

    4. Ariana on said:

      I think I fell in love at first sight with this book.I finished reading it with happy tears in my eyes. It made me sad, it made me happy, it made my heart race even though there wasn’t too much action, but the amount of emotions per page were definitely too many for my heart to handle them properly.This book went from the ‘must read’ shelf to the ‘most beautiful romances’ shelf in a blink of an eye. I was caught up in this story without knowing – one moment (around midnight) I starte [...]

      This books is so utterly FABULOUS! It’s one my favorite love stories and it happens in a mere twenty four hour period. Don’t worry about the instalove thing happening here. That’s something that I can’t stand and TSPoLaFS (did you like how I shortened the titles there, whew it’s a long one) does not have instalove. It has a progressive, genuine building of a relationship that is sweet and endearing.Both characters are very relatable and I loved their scenes together. They just play off [...]

    6. Emily May on said:

      3.5This was a super-short read - 215 pages of pretty large print - but it was fun, heart-warming and I managed to finish it within a couple of hours. I didn't quite take enough from it to give it 4 stars, but then it was far better than some of the books I've rated 3 stars in the past, hence the rating. I confess that I would not have read this book if the publishers had not provided a free copy for review, I rarely like romance books and need something else to support the novel, a mystery for e [...]

      Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?Now this is what I call a plain ol' romantic love story that has everything you want and more. It's definitely perfect for this time of year when you can cuddle up near a fire and just let your heart be filled. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight will leave you breathless and just when you think you can't take any more sweetness, you find out the reason behind this mouthful of a title and you're swept off your feet y [...]

      *3.5 stars*it's cute, it's fluffy, and if you go into it expecting anything else.'s on you! really. it's true that from the summary you think there're gonna be a few more swoony moments and a little less of family drama, but all the same, it's a great relaxing read i would recommend to fans of freshly-written contempsd of course, i have to add--it really helped that i imagined oliver as this:[image error]suh-woon or what?!

    9. Aj the Ravenous Reader on said:

      "Is it better to have had a good thing and lost it, or never to have had it?"That the entire story takes place in only 24 hours gives perfect sense to the story and of course, to the title. It really is a quick and easy read like watching a cute romantic movie although I strongly don’t think that this is a story about love, perhaps more of a story of new beginnings or second chances or maybe even fate. Yes, fate is the better term.^^By reading this book, you'll learn a lot about airports since [...]

      This book was so cute and was the perfect thing to read to get out of my slump! I was a little reluctant to read it as I've heard many negative reviews, but I really enjoyed it! I even liked the fact that it wasn't solely focused on romance, and I am a romance-junky. There was also a sprinkling of London, which of course I loved.

    11. Maureen on said:

      This was just an alright book. It had the potential to be super cute and adorable but ended up just being pretty meh. I didn't really love that it was written in present tense - it made the narration voice feel super weird at different points - and I feel like the relationship didn't develop at all which isn't surprising since it's extremely short and the main characters are going through their own stuff that they have to deal with.I did like, though, that both the characters had things they nee [...]

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI read this book for the Unapologetic Romance Readers' New Years 2017 Reading Challenge. For more info about what this is, click here. Given my hatred of insta-love, picking up a book that literally has the words "Love at First Sight" in the title was probably unwise. How could I resist, though? You were all losing your shit when this book came out, calling it romantic and cute and feel-good. As much as I enjoy darker romances, we all need a bit o [...]

      Very enjoyable and endearing book!!! I'm looking forward to the movie which is due to come out this year.

    14. Jude on said:

      and it waslol, I have no idea how to explain yet. It was a simple story really, sweet, the beginning of a bigger one for Hadley and Oliver; but there were so many little details and things that just made the story so great and complete. I'm smiling like a fool right now, I seriously can't wait to re-read it. It's such a beautiful book that every time I glance at it I just get a bigger smile, and I'm sure it's going to be that way for a long time. Oliver and Hadley were perfect. Not in a no flaws [...]

    15. ♥Rachel♥ on said:

      I've been dying to get my hands on this book from the moment I read the blurb on it. It does not disappoint. This is such a sweet and heartbreaking story at the same time. The story is sweet, in the scenes with Oliver, and heartbreaking in the ones with Hadley's dad and family drama. Hadley is flying from Connecticut to London to attend her father's wedding. She ends up missing her flight by four minutes and is bumped to the next one. This makes things very tight, because now she'll be landing a [...]

      The Fermentation Process of Mayonnaise .That would have been one of several other possible title versions for the young adult novel by Jennifer E. Smith. Its connection to the plot would have been only slightly less tangible than that of the ultimately chosen one. For both are simply examples of the fake summer research topics Yale University student Oliver wittily invents on the spot to impress the girl in the airplane seat next to his. The big difference between the saucy title and the lovey-d [...]

      2.5 starsAfter all, it’s one thing to run away when someone’s chasing you. It’s entirely another to be running all alone. As something of a sceptic (well, okay, a romantic trapped in the body of a realist masquerading as a cynic), the title alone was enough to tell me that this book would be fighting an uphill battle with me. While I like the quirk factor of the phrase ”The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight”, I’ll admit that there’s a part of me that reads that line an [...]

      This book was so beautiful. Oliver was so kind to Hadley.

    19. Mandy K on said:

      So, this book is a little unbelievable, but so is the idea of love at first sight. And in spite of that, The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight manages to be a cute read. The story takes place over the course of 24 hours during 4th of July weekend, but I can see this being a Hallmark channel Christmas movie with lots of cheese and feels and fluff. I usually don't like insta-love, but this was really sweet and more like insta-maybe, insta-possibilities. Hadley and Oliver spend 3 hours [...]

Hard as she tries the melody of their meeting runsthrough her mind on an endless loop each time as surprisinglysweet as the last, like a lullaby like a hymn and shedoesn’t think she could ever get tired of hearing it” The statistical probability of love at first sight was one of my highly anticipated books of the [...]

    21. Nomes on said:

      The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a story that takes place entirely over a 24 hour period. Hadley is flying to London to attend her fathers wedding and misses her original flight by 4 minutes ~ which means she meets cute British boy, Oliver, instead (and spends the red-eye with him).Despite the cover and title of the book, the main tension driving the story is not the (fall in love in one day) love story, but the story of Hadley and her father, presented through flashbacks an [...]

      Me while reading this book:Stage 1:Read the first page and I was like "It's going to be really cute and adorable! Yes, this is exactly what I need!"Stage 2:Stage 3:I don't understand the point of this book. It basically has nothing new or interesting. It's just another cliched story.Believe me, I do enjoy contemporary novels or I used to. I get easily annoyed if the story line is very trite and cliched. I mean, what's the point in having a different title, a different cover and different charact [...]

      THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, is a cute, fluffy fast read. It's short, sweet, bitter - all lovingly packaged into one.Hadley is headed to her fathers wedding, but when she misses her flight, she finds herself face to face with gangly, shy, sweet Oliver, who offers to help with her suitcase. At that moment, she feels a familiar flutter at the pit of her stomach. And when their lock eyes, for some reason, she doesn't like the thought of them going their separate ways. As they [...]

      [image error]Aww! I loved it! This is a young adult book. There isn't any "steamy" scenes in it. There isn't a lot of cursing or anything like that.This book was just such a sweet, fun, and all around enjoyable read. I honestly didn't realize how quickly I was flipping through the pages.So not only is it a sweet read, it's a quick one!

      Amor a primera vista, insta-love y cliché, SÍ pero no es solo eso de lo que va esta historia. Aquí hay drama y no uno cualquiera, sino del que ocurre en la vida real. Hadley Sullivan, una neoyorquina de 17 años, debe viajar a Londres para asistir a la boda de su padre, al que no ve desde hace un año. Debido a algunos percances, la joven pierde su vuelo y durante la espera del próximo, conoce por obra del destino a un apuesto inglés, que ¡oh casualidad! será su compañero de asiento dura [...]

      One of the best books I've read in a long time.Everything came together like magic - the plot, the emotion (so real some of the sad parts choked me), the raw realness of it and especially the '24 hour' countdown per chapter. It was a book unlike any other with characters that will stay with me forever.Hadley and Oliver. I swear, the way they met's every girl's dream to meet a guy like Oliver (and did I mention he's British?!) on an airplane trip to London. To be seat buddies. To confide in him a [...]

      d that's why Lisa reads the vanillas and I stick with urban fantasy. This is such a Lisa book. My books have guns and bombs and spells gone wrong. Not airports and divorced parents. Yawn. EDIT: Okay, so in the end, this was SO not a Lisa book. See? What do I know? If you want to read a real Lisa book, read Catching Jordan, but first make sure to check out her amazing review HERE.
