About The Book:
When Hannah picks up a call from an unknown number, she thinks nothing of it--it's just an easygoing American named Davey who misdialed her while calling into a job interview. And when Hannah wishes him luck after clearing up the confusion, she never actually expects to hear from him again. Then she gets a text saying he got the job and he'll be moving to London, and she can't help but smile. Soon their texts become phone calls that turn into video calls, and their friendship becomes a relationship they can't wait to start in earnest once Davey lands in London in a month's time. But when Hannah goes to meet him at the airport, Davey isn't there--and the reason why changes both of their lives in an instant. With their future together suddenly so uncertain, they don't know what to do but try to move on from each other. Though their chance at love seems lost forever, neither is never far from the other's thoughts. Will fate intervene once more to bring the two together, or will Davey always be the man that Hannah never met?

My Review:
Davey dials Hannah's number by mistake, trying to set up a job interview from Texas to England. After he gets the job he texts Hannah to let her know he will be moving there and they embark on a friendship that leads to phone calls then video calls and eventually turns into more. 

 My gosh, the chemistry between these two jumped off the page, and the romance of it all made me swoon. But then when Davey's flight lands in England he is not on the plane and Hannah is crushed. And reader, you will be too...What happens next broke me. 

Don't let the cover fool you, this is not a fluffy romance, it is a very emotional book and utterly unique. The sexy time is steamy without being vulgar. I loved the dual points of view and how each chapter covered a month in the year the book takes place. Elle Cook wrote the illness in a very realistic way and there is a good reason for that, her husband suffered the same thing. 

I had no idea that this author writes other books under the name Lorna Cook and I went to look up some of her other offerings and I already have a copy of The Dressmaker’s Secret on my to be read pile. If you enjoy realistic romances with some surprising twists along the way, this is the book for you.

Many thanks to NetGalley, Elle Cook, and Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine, Dell for the giving of the ARC.
