The Seven Year Slip


Clementine’s aunt always told her, her apartment was magical, but Clementine always imagined it was just another story. That is until, while grieving the loss of her aunt, she finds a strange man standing in her late aunt’s kitchen. He’s the perfect man for Clementine and exactly what she would normally fall for, but she knows she can never let anyone into her heart since that leaves her open to be left. Oh, and Clementine happens to live seven years in the future, because turns out her aunt’s apartment is magic after all.

This was such a complex and cute story. Clementine was a great lead. She had such a great personality who truly just needed to find herself and understand that it’s better to have been loved and lost than to never have loved. Clementine mixed with our male lead Iwan was perfection. You could feel the chemistry between the two, and while semi open door, this story is way more about sustainable love.

With a mix of wrong timing, second change, and magical realism; this romance is great for all romance readers. While there were still some cheesy pieces (as all good romances have) it was a great story about grief, growing, and always having hope. Definitely recommend.
