Hallie Goodman is a successful party planner and notorious people pleaser. When one of her bride’s accidentally sends her personal videos of her ex-boyfriend, Hallie doesn’t mean to but she can’t help but watch these videos. The bride’s ex just happens to be renowned astronaut Christopher Ortiz, and the videos are from his time on The International Space Station. As Hallie starts to ‘get to know’ Chris from the video’s, she decides to send him her own videos, as an apology for watching them. As both Chris and Hallie get to know each other through these videos, they begin to fall for each other. They continue to grow their relationship once they meet in person, but will their pasts interferer with their present?
Ya’ll this is the cutest little book that I didn’t know I needed! I loved so much about this story from Hallie Goodman being the most hard working party planner while also being the absolute sweetest person, to former astronaut Chris who is trying to figure out his next step in life. I absolutely hated the way Hallie’s family and friends walked over her, but loved the way her best friend and Chris jump in to help her stand up for herself. This could have very easily turned into a super cheesy romance, where just one conversation would have resolved the entire plot line, but Young does a great job of making this one relatable and ‘real’.
This was such a heartfelt romance with plenty of character growth and personality. It was absolutely delightful to read especially when you just need something to make your heart happy. Highly recommend grabbing this one when it comes out in October.
