I am not a romance novel person; I don't enjoy reading something based entirely on a relationship That being said, this book was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! I felt emotionally connected with both Fallon and Ben and the character development as the story progressed was great. Nothing felt corny or forced at any point. I usually read YA, but this book did not feel far off from it.

Fallon is an ex-actor who was in a fire and has burn scars on the left side of her body from her head to her legs. She meets Ben on November 9 before she moves from California to New York. Ben has an extremely dark secret and immediately is interested in Fallon, who returns the feelings. What starts as being fake girlfriend and boyfriend leads to the two of them agreeing to only meet once a year on November 9, with no interaction otherwise, for the next five years. After that, they will decide to continue in a real relationship or let theirs fizzle out. The book goes through both character's perspectives and through each year's date. As both of their lives take drastic turns, they find ways to still meet each other on November 9 and reveal their feelings for each other. They hurt each other's feelings, forgive each other, and mend each other as normal relationships go. I loved going through the relationship with them.

Ben is a writer. And he is writing a novel based on his and Fallon's relationship. About halfway through the book, Fallon is allowed to read Ben's manuscript and it creates a drastic change on her feelings as well as the reader's, but allows the reader to see a much deeper part of Ben as well as explains his secret and how he came to "run in" to Fallon on the day that they met. There is much more than fate involved.

What is really fun about the book is that Fallon loves romance novels, so she is frequently commenting on what would be corny or what wouldn't work if their story was a book, so nothing ever feels like your typical romance novel. I'll definitely be reading more Colleen Hoover after this. :) ( )

If my tears aren't enough to tell you how much I was moved by this book, words won't be either. My number 1 book for 2015. There's not time for another book to take that place now. It was everything I wasn't expecting and more. Ignore everyone's reviews and just read it for yourself. ( )
