First I want to say sorry for such a slow delay for this review just had so many reviews to do and been sucked in with some rather good books since I read this.

This book did kinda remind me of One day by David Nicholls which was a fabulous read so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with this read as its a similar story line.

We Meet Rachel and Ben, two people who met at university and became the best of friends and did everything together until one little thing happened and both their lives moved on. Ben became married, Rachel didn't. One rainy day Rachel bumps into Ben and they start to catch up...will their friendship spark again? does Rachel have feelings?

This book had me giggling all the way to the end, I just loved it so so much. It was an amazing read and I loved the way we flicked back to when Rachel and Ben were at university together and then back to the present where they were becoming friends again.
Rachel was definitely my favourite character in this book, I felt I could relate to her at times and did also feel very sorry for her at times but she could soon pick herself back up again. She had a very witty personality. Ben came across a very mysterious and handsome man who everyone could like in university, the charmer and would have women falling at his feet. I loved all the mix of characters together and they soon all blended together in this brilliant story.

It is definitely a book that will pull at your heart and maybe drop a few tears but you will want to fall in love with this book over and over.
