The Statistical Probability of Love at first sight by Jennifer E. Smith


Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of Hadley's life ...
Her father is getting married in London to a woman she's never met, and she's just missed her flight.
Hadley has never believed in destiny or fate before ...
But stuck at the airport in New York, today is the day she meets Oliver. He's british. He's cute. And he's on her new flight.

My review

Hadley and Oliver meet at the airport on their way to London.
She is off to a wedding, feeling as miserable and grumpy as she can because it is her father's.
He is off to a wedding as well, so she thinks, and is just the sweet gentleman he can be by helping her.

Hadley shouldn't be on this flight because if she were just a few minutes earlier nothing of this would have happened.
She wouldn't have met Oliver.
She wouldn't learn a lot about herself.
She wouldn't have fallen in love.

While Hadley is mainly pissed at her father for marrying again and leaving her and her mother behind she's at her worst. And now that she missed her flight, something that never happened before, it can't get any worse.
And there's Oliver. Cute, funny, thoughtful Oliver. Sitting right next to her. Telling her stories and making her laugh.
Could she really have fallen in love with him in just a few hours?
She tells him everything but what does she really know about him?

On their way over to London Hadley and Oliver get to know each other and themselves. They learn what it really means to know someone.
Now that they found each other Hadley doesn't really want to say goodbye. She wants to talk a little more and find out what is going on between them but before she can say anything Oliver is gone.
London is a big city, will she find him? He only told her a few little things about his childhood .. will this be enough?

How exciting is it to know that they met on the airport?
I for once think it's a lovely thought and it makes me want to plan my next trip. Who knows maybe I will meet my love at first sight and the statistical probability just showed us that it's possible.

The statistical probability of love at first sight is a lovely book and I really enjoyed reading it.
It's fresh, it's funny and it's sad.
Proof that you can fall in love in no matter of time .. and everywhere.


  1. Nice review of the topic , I was looking to understand this matter further and found this information to be informative..

  2. Outstanding review~ I actually liked this details a lot more than you did. It's a bit progressively, yes, but it's such a superb read! I'm also pleased I selected this up outside of university or else I'm sure I wouldn't appreciate studying this in an outstanding creating.

  3. Just picked up the Temple Wars book! Book 1 is fascinating and had me engaged from page one! You guys should check it out! Temple Wars
