The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out. But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.
Surely Gabe and Lea will figure out that they are meant to be together….
There’s a lot of things going on this book that I immensely love and adore.
First, you have the cover. That drop-dead gorgeous cover that could out rival Miss Universe candidates. One of the prettiest covers I have EVER stared (and believe me, I’ve stared at quite a few). I can only imagine how lovely it would look amongst my shelves. Those vibrant shades of pink and red and cream gah. #covergasm
Besides the cover, the synopsis was what signed, sealed, delivered the deal for me. It sounds like a really light and funny read. And I read a review on Goodreads saying that it was told in multiple POVs except those of the main characters. Crazy? Yes. Awesome and completely original? Heck to the yes. I just cannot wait for this book.
