The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sightby Jennifer E Smith
Synopses & Reviews
A summer romance filled with danger and lies
Jane is ready for a fantastic summer. In fact, shes pretty sure the universe owes her one.
This past winter, Jane was held at knifepoint during an armed robbery and the specter of that night still haunts her. A summer romance with one of the town bad boys—sexy Handel Davies, who takes her breath away and makes her feel like a bolder version of herself—seems like the universes way of paying her back.
But bad boys always have secrets, and Handels secret just might shatter Jane completely.
This suspense novel marries psychological thriller with summer romance and is perfect for teen fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl.
Tempting, sexy, and dangerous, this book will steal your heart. I was...completely lured by the story's dark twists and turns.” Marie Rutkoski, author of The Winners Curse
"Donna Freitas's stunning prose catapulted this dark, seductive tale straight into my head and heart. This is a perfect read for thrill-seeking teens." --Anna Collomore, author of The Ruining

"In a fast-paced and entertaining novel with a superlatively romantic premise, 17-year-old Hadley misses her flight to London, where her father is marrying the woman he left their family for, but she unexpectedly may have found true love in the process. When Hadley meets charming Oliver at the gate, they instantly connect and bond during her new flight. They even share a kiss in the customs line, but Hadley loses sight of him afterward. Now, she has to survive being a bridesmaid, contend with her feelings about her father's new life, and figure out how to find Oliver before she returns to the U.S. the next day. Hadley is rushing through most of this book, and readers will gladly race alongside her. But they'll also savor cinematic moments, like a touching heart-to-heart conversation between Hadley and her father on the dance floor. Smith (You Are Here) balances Hadley's dual relationship dramas well, and while the story wraps up neatly, readers will be as caught up as Hadley is by the physical and emotional distances she traverses.
