Publisher's Summary

What if you almost missed the love of your life?

Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.

Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.

One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:

To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors.... Drink sometime?

So begins a not-quite-romance of near-misses, true love, and the power of the written word.

A wonderfully funny will-they-won’t-they romance told with real emotional honesty, perfect for those who loved Sally Thorne’s 99% Mine and Helena Hunting’s Meet Cute.

Critic Reviews

"A fresh, smart, modern rom com. This is romance seen through the wry eyes of a cynic, and that's what makes it so special – and, ultimately, so uplifting. It had me totally gripped." (Beth O’Leary)

"The joyful, romantic and life-affirming love story you need in your suitcase this summer!" (Red Magazine)

"Tender, energetic and authentic...Such a current love story, but so timeless too. I adored Nadia and Daniel." (Daisy Buchanan)

missed connection

I saw previous comments about frustrations over the coincidences in the book.. And I'm going through, enjoying the narration and the premise of finding each other over the missed connections.. but the previous reviewers were right.. it was just too much... It became less of a cute story to a frustrating tale of near misses too many times over. I mostly finished just to finish. Narration was delightful. Read the Flatshare. It's far more satisfying.

Disappointed

I went into this one with no expectations but was truly disappointed in the overall story. The MC was just incredibly selfish and I couldn’t get past that. I like to always finish books so I pushed through but really didn’t want to. I really want to ask for my credit back.

Too Many Coincidences

The premise is cute but the many coincidences is ridiculous. A person almost never bumps into someone they know in a big city, let alone multiple times. Also, there were few parts that seem inconsistent. Daniel is an awkward, nerdy engineer who is too shy to even say "hello" to a stranger. Then there's a scene where he's chatting easily with Nadia's colleague Gabby.

Flatshare knock off

If you liked Flatshare, which really is pretty good, you will be attracted to this title. It is essentially the same story. But the premise is much thinner-- they fall in love with each other remotely but not at all believably. I don't think it is worth the credit.

I was obsessed.

I couldn't stop grinning while listening to the last few chapters. The read/listen was so frustrating and unbearable at times, but in a fashion similar to struggling with getting the lid off of your favorite flavor of ice cream - you savor every moment of tangible agony knowing full well that the universe, or in this example, ice cream, is about to throw you a heart shaped peg to plug that gap in your chest. I loved every excruciating minute and even caught myself rolling my eyes at every near miss each character made during their journey into collision. When that collision finally happened, it was like a parade of living sparklers and fairies dancing to a love drunk cover of "Ain't that a kick in the head". I'm utterly speechless at the writers ability to make me care so much about two fictional characters happiness, to the point of wanting to drop-kick Daniel in the face for leaving that bar, then wanting to cradle him on a comfy porch swing while letting him cry for however long he wanted (I empathize with his struggle with grief, as I lost my own father at too young an age). This is the first contemporary romance novel I've read/listened to this summer where I didn't have an imaginary face to place with the characters names, and I don't know the exact reason why. Perhaps because I wanted Nadia and Daniel to be anyone, or everyone, to establish a connection with the idea rather than an identity. That love can be both lost and found around every corner and that's okay. I'm not Daniel in my mind, and Nadia isn't the cute girl at the gas station who I've secretly crushed on for far too many minutes, because that's MY story, and this book has me rooting for everyone elses story. Perhaps, that's why I felt so whole after finishing this story; I, too, long for someone elses missed connection to finally collide, because everyone deserves that kind of collision, just like everyone who hashtagged #ourstop was hoping to see Daniel and Nadias happily-ever-beginning. Needless to say, the book was an absolute delight, and I'm lucky to have stumbled upon it. Now stop reading my review, and start reading this book!

I thought this was very cute

I hesitated in buying this one at first because people were calling it a copy of The Flatshare among other things, but it's not. Sure, there are similarities, but overall it's a good story on its own and not a flat out copy of anything.

Writing is not great

Very predictable story. I don't mind predictable but the writing was unimaginative and remedial. The writer explained everything in a high school type of way which made the characters boring and simple. I wouldn't recommend.

DNF

My friend said that the ending almost makes up for the rest of the book, but I can't even make it there. I got a bit over halfway and was just too bored! I didn't care about the characters, there was a lot of cringe worthy moments, just meh. I don't typically DNF books, I hate wasting time and if I finish I could at least add it to my yearly book count, but it wasn't worth it.

Modern Day Love Story That Makes You Wait

Came to be one of my favorite books ever! The build up was amazing, and unexpected. The story just beautiful. Loved the bit of English lit for this American too! Cheers ♥️
