Genres: Love & Romance

Twenty years weren’t enough for either of them to forget.

A chance encounter, a missed connection.

Two wayward stars that collided in a turbulent sky, at the right place, but at the wrong time in both of their lives.

What happens when they meet again? Do the same unforgettable sparks still fly?

Titan Jennings and Jesenia Van Buren may come from two different worlds but their hearts are open to second chances. No matter who or what may stand against them, love is what anchors their lives together.

Love may be infinite but time is not, Missed Connection is a novel about making the very best you can with what little you’ve got.

Alexis says…

This is a hard book to do a review for. Why? Well, I was a complete hot mess after reading it. I’m talking swollen eyelids, mascara streaks, flushed cheeks. Yep…pretty much a disaster. So I slept on it to gather my thoughts and to make myself sound a bit more coherent.  I also really want to shy away from giving any sort of spoiler because I really think this book is one you need to go into blind.

Titan and Jesenia meet on New Year’s Eve twenty years ago and make quite the impact on each other in such a short amount of time.  Both are facing problems in their lives and are at a bit of a crossroads.  Though their meeting was short-lived, it impacted their lives so deeply.

“How can one cup of coffee give you the feeling that you’ve known someone forever?”

Now in the present both are still thinking of each other and what could have been.  Titan places a Missed Connections ad on Craigslist to try and find Jesenia after so many years. The ad sets into motion what I can assure you is a beautiful love story.   I enjoyed the whirlwind and the romance of how they actually got back together face-to-face.

Both Titan and Jesenia have their fair share of problems. Jesenia is in the absolute most loveless marriage but has the most amazing relationship with her daughter. I was very moved by the relationship she shared with Angie and wish that I had that sort of relationship with my own mother. Titan is a widower and is now a single parent to his son Luke, who’s such a great kid.  Together these four mesh so well together you’d have thought they were always a family.

“I hope you know, that if I could, I would give you the stars. But instead, all I can give you is everything in my heart.”

My heart was with Jesenia throughout this entire book. There was so much about her and her story that really resonated with me.  Out of the both of them, I really wanted Jesenia to have her happy ending.

Missed Connections isn’t just a beautiful love story, it’s a story that teaches you what’s most important in life. Don’t take anything for granted. Live in the moment. Cherish the people you love and the time you have with them.

Also, make sure to have tissue on hand with this book. I think this is only the second book this year that has made me cry.
