They were perfect strangers—all perks, no strings. Until they weren’t.

Elan wasn’t supposed to meet Caty. She lived halfway around the world, and he barely left Manila. Yet here he was, giving her a ride to the airport. Convinced that they would never have to see each other again after that day, Elan and Caty started to bond over truths, dares, stolen kisses, and games in hotel rooms and bars.

With brief encounters that turned them from acquaintances to friends — tipping to the point of lovers, always — will Elan and Caty keep settling for a day, or will someone finally dare to stay long enough to discover: Is this love?

20adf4_df1db29699fc459a8480746d5e7c0908 My thoughts 20adf4_df1db29699fc459a8480746d5e7c0908

*A big thanks to Netgalley and to the publisher for this eARC in exchange for a honest review*

I think I’m in love again
In my head yeah you’re in my head
I think I’m in love again
In my head yeah you’re in my head
I didn’t think it could be true
Let alone that it would be you

While reading this book, this song keeps in my head over and over again. From start to finish, damn, it is so good. I’m so proud of this book since it’s from a Filipino author and I really admired it. Also, I can totally picture the characters very clearly in my head and everything is just magical-romance read. I love the twist, the plot and the ENDING! Oh that ending! I just want to hug the book and owned it!

This kind of love-story surely I want to treasure of. We have both characters that really strangers and they just met like it’s destiny for them to meet. Caty is loud, charming and always making fun of Elan. I really like her character in this book, it feels so real. Then we have Elan, patience, quiet and fear of getting angry. Very much opposite to Caty, but we always knows the saying “Opposite attracts” I think this is why both of them clicked for the first time. We all know that long-distance relationship is really hard but I think Caty and Elan nailed it even though they’re both far away, miles away from where they are. They both try everything to work it and fight for it. I think I got some tips on how to handle good relationship with your partner, it’s that good.

Overall, one the best romance book that I’ve ever read so far. I did have roller coaster ride of feelings and emotions. Giggle, crying, laughing, name it! This is how this book is great. I felt the story so real that I think it happened “MAYBE” in real events and real characters, not just fiction. If this will be becoming in big screen like the other books, I think it will be one of the blockbuster. I suggest that Caty could be played by Angelica Pangiliban and Elan could be John Llyod Cruz.
