“Jake.” I inhale deeply. “When I discovered you were getting married, my world collapsed.”
This was an adult contemporary romance novel, following one woman as her life went in two different directions.
Gemma was an okay character, and it was clear how deep her feelings were for Jake. It was also nice how much she cared about her friend, that she’d sacrifice her own happiness to ...more
The concept is unique, I can definitely give it that. Having two parallel-running story-lines with the same characters but different choices, intrigued me a lot at first. That is, until I noticed the author keep going back to the same things in both storylines.
Although I do get the why, it got on my nerves she sometimes uses the exact same descriptions and dialogues in both story lines.
The other issue I had was conversations sometimes feeling very forced and the main chara ...more
This book caught my attention as I think we’ve all wondered how our lives could have turned out completely differently had we made other choices and in Love Connection you get to see how Gemma’s life could be by making both choices and seeing her two very unalike lives side by side. She can either attend her best friends wedding as the maid of honor, or crash her exes wedding and reveal her true feelings. Which choice does she really make? And will the outcome r ...more

WOAH. This is one of the most unique books that I have read in a long time. Camilla Isley has outdone herself with this novel and I couldn't be more pleased with how it all turned out. What do you do when you have to make a decision? This is the essential plot of this book. One woman. Two life choices. Each with different endings. So what would she choose, and what happens when she gets there?
I received Love Connection in a giveaway and found it to be a fun romantic comedy that makes you wonder about the choices you would make to find happiness.

I LOVED this book. The two parallel stories were so original and even when events overlapped it was amazing how the author gave it nuances to make each chapter unique. I couldn't put this book down! I wanted to know what would happen and I kept guessing wrong, I was hooked until the very end. If I could give it ten stars I would...
I don't know how to express how perfect was this book without reveal too much ruining your reading experience.
I was afraid that the plot would have been too intricate to follow and enjoy but I was so WRONG because the author made an amazing job.
Everything was perfectly developped,all the characters were well thought and I loved how things turned out in the end.
I can't wait to read Camilla Isley next novel.

I was intrigued starting at chapter 2 when I realized that you see both option she could choose. I felt embarrassed with Gemma as she had to cancel a wedding, looking like hell, after riding on a hay/chicken transporter. Laughed my ass off at her inner conversations with herself and had a hard time to decide which way would be my choice. Once I lik ...more

This story is reminiscent of the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding doors. There are two choices that happen and two different stories with the same character that take place in different timeline/dimension. The stories are sweet, clean and sappy. Much like a Julia Roberts romantic comedy, Runaway ...more
At first I got a little confused but then I understood that there were to paths that were different for the decision took in one moment. One moment, one decision and it could change our lifes forever! But I got surprised with the end and I loved it, I love how Gemma and Jake's lives were destined to be together.
I love the love story between Gemma and Jake and I totally love the Jakebox!!! actually I have myself one of those to sav ...more
Gemma is at the airport she must decide if she wants to crash her ex's wedding or be made of honor for her BBF as she planned...
In chapter one she makes a choice... In chapter two a plane arrives on time instead of being delayed as in chapter one and Gemma has a chance encounter that makes her take the opposite choice!
After that, is one chapter of each storylines. It was amazing. I loved them both (a little Vampire Diaries of me). I was never confused and I ad ...more

It's the story of Gemma, Jake, Amelia and Richard. Two couples, two storylines, two decisions and how many different outcomes?
This is about love, friendship, life choices, and the search for happiness. It's a fun ...more
