I'm not sure if I believe in soul mates or love at first sight. However, I do believe in destiny. Everyone has a path and everything happens for a reason. Noting is merely a coincidence. I also believe in fate. How it can be cruel and unfair but it can also be your kindest friend and ally...

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is about 4 minutes of fates time to make sure Hadley Sullivan misses her flight to her father's wedding in London. A wedding that Hadley wasn't to keen on attending to begin with. While she awaits for another flight out, she meets British-cutey, Oliver who is going back to London for a different affair.

The instant friendship that these characters have is pretty contagious and felt realistic enough for it to be believable. They felt very natural, like two people who've known each other all their lives instead of just a few short hours. The conversations were so endearing (the whole little stowaway was too adorable), pulling off that subtle attraction they didn't even realize they had for one another till the flight was done and they lost each other in the crowd.
This isn't always easy to pull off in books, but I thought this was perfectly conveyed by Jennifer E. Smith.

To tell you the truth, after reading the blurb I was expecting fluff-n-stuff, but it turned out that this book wasn't meant to be over-the-top romantic, but it was enough to make me feel charmed by these characters, what they had to face and the sweet fairy-tale like connection they shared.

All in all, I really enjoyed this book. It's witty and warm and it made me smile a goofy grin.
This was a great stand-alone novel, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want more. The ending was a tad lacking and I want to know what happens to Oliver and Hadley next, so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a second book.

A feel good read!
