Publisher's Summary

This is the classic tale of boy meets girl: Girl...goes home with someone else.

Meet Eve. She's a dreamer, a feeler, a careening well of sensitivities who can't quite keep her feet on the ground, or steer clear of trouble. She's a laugher, a crier, a quirky and quick-witted bleeding-heart worrier.

Meet Ben. He's an engineer, an expert at leveling floors who likes order, structure, and straight lines. He doesn't opine, he doesn't ruminate, he doesn't simmer until he boils over.

So naturally, when the two first cross paths, sparks don't exactly fly. But then they meet again. And again. And then, finally, they find themselves with a deep yet fragile connection that will change the course of their relationship - possibly forever.

Follow Eve and Ben as they navigate their 20s on a winding journey through first jobs, first dates, and first breakups; through first reunions, first betrayals and, maybe, first love. This is When Harry Met Sally reimagined; a charming tale told from two unapologetically original points of view. With an acerbic edge and heartwarming humor, debut novelist Leslie Cohen takes us on a tour of what life looks like when it doesn't go according to plan, and explores the complexity, chaos, and comedy in finding a relationship built to last.

Whiny 20-something angst

I never quit books mid-way, but I seriously almost abandoned this multiple times. I kept waiting for the redeeming plot twist or something, but I was left regretting the hours invested in listening to the various ramblings and rantings of a self-absorbed woman trying hard to screw her life up in as many ways as she could. Minimal plot and romance, maximum whining - although the narrators did a great job, the female narration really captures the essence of the character and I had to listen on 1.5 just to get through it.

75% Repetative Inner Dialogue 15% Love Story

A lot of this story is spent inside the head of our heroin, Eve. Eve often has an inner monolouge that goes on for ten minutes about the same thing. Often times her tangents involve her emotional journey, but I would much rather be SHOWN this characters journey, than hear it worked out in her head for 20% of the story. I don't need you to reitterate the connection to your sister in twelve different sentences that relay the same point. This romance novel is more in the "discovering oneself" genre, that happens to have a nice guy lurking in the background of the story. I would have preferred this book a little more if her tangents were cut in half.

Just Okay

This book was just okay, basic boy meets girl story. Narration was good and enjoyable to listen to, but not a lot of depth in the plot.

Okay, this one is actually so cute!

I downloaded this one after I saw the book mentioned in a Buzzfeed post. The person there said that it was like When Harry Met Sally for a new generation and I just had to get it after reading that! I was afraid that a description like that was a setup to be disappointed, but I actually totally loved this. The characters' love story was so believable and realistic, I couldn't help but feel that the author was writing about her own life. The narrators were good, too! I hadn't listened to stuff from either of them before, so now I will keep an eye out. I will be recommending this one to friends for sure!
