~ Colleen Hoover, November 9
Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.
Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Wow! I wasn't even going to read this book (because I hate the name Fallon & I didn't want to read about a fire victim), but I'm so happy that I did. I went from smiling to frowning to smiling again, laughing to crying to laughing again... AND I became so angry once, that I stopped reading this book for a few hours. I was super pissed. There were a few things I could see coming a mile away and but then out of the blue, twists arrived throwing the story into a completely different direction that blew me away. I'm not sure if it is my love for books and book boyfriends, or the fact that I'm a writer and could draw parallels to Ben, but I just couldn't put this book down, unless it was to tell my husband what was going on now. He kept laughing at me because I was so entranced by this book... and by my latest book boyfriend, Ben! Seriously, I DID NOT want this book to end. I thought Colleen Hoover's Ugly Love & Confess were good, but November 9 was even better! Off to search for my next Colleen Hoover novel.
By the way, I listened to this book in audio format first (loved the voices) and then bought the book so I could read it again in paperback. Yep, it was that good. Damn, I wish I wrote this book... the ultimate compliment to a writer. Thanks Colleen Hoover, keep them coming. :)
(because I love Ben. I love book boyfriends. I love writers. I love quotes from writers. I love authors who can make me feel SOMETHING! Colleen Hoover makes me have all the feels... and I love her for it. Did I mention I love Ben?)
