Read it a long time ago and recently forgot about it until I was browsing my ebooks and came across it again. It's A M A Z I N G! Enjoyable and whenever my best friend asks me my favorite novel I tell him this book!
A must-read for romantics.

I really liked this book! I loved Oliver as soon as he was introduced, and the relationship between Hadley and her stepmother was interesting. It was funny, well-written, and made sense.

This book is by far one of my favourite books. Hadley and Oliver's relationship is beautiful. Although they meet under unusual circumstances they still manage to put what they are going through aside and learn about each other. The connection from the very start is obvious between them. The author does a great job of building Hadley and Olivers relationship. This book was most definitely a job well done.

This was a really sweet book, reminded me of a fanfiction. I liked Hadley's relationship with her father. Recommend if you like light, fluffy reads.

When Hadley gets on a plane to go to her father’s wedding, she is seated next to Oliver, a young man going to his father’s funeral. Quickly, the two talk, and over the plane trip, fall in love. Unfortunately, they do not exchange numbers. How will Hadley find Oliver again? Does she want to?

I absolutely love this book! I picked it up because I was in the mood for a sappy love story, but I got much more than I bargained for! With father-daughter problems, bitter feelings about divorce, and the slightly awkward feeling of new love, this book is one that I didn't put down till I was done. It's a perfect "I'm bored and need an awesome book" read.

If you're finding a book that is cheesy this is not the book you are finding. You might expect it from the title but the story more revolves around the family of the two characters than the story of both of them.

This is my all time FAVORITE book ever. I just love this book. Its sweet and happy and wow. I just have no words. For a person who has never had a favorite book this one is now on the list.

The novel was a really cute read. It takes place over 24 hours and it doesn't just focus on the romance aspect, which was refreshing . The characters are memorable and their conversations on the plane were adorable. My only wish is that it was longer, but it had a good ending.

I was expecting a cute love story, and this included that, but was much more of a story about fathers and daughters, and whether its better to hurt people in the interest of ultimate happiness, or try to make things work as they stand. With the amount of bitterness and teen-angst that Hadley had been directing at her father, it felt a bit too pat that she would forgive and forget so quickly, but it made for a nice ending.

Do you believe in love at first sight? If not, then follow in the footsteps of Hadley and Oliver as they embark on a flight from New York to London. Somewhere along the lines of that they fall head of over heels in love. It's funny what fate seems to do to your heart.
