Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis

Available September 28, 2021

Noelle is on her way home from a college reunion when a freak snowstorm completely stops traffic on the highway for 8 hours. She isn’t prepared, is in the most unreliable car ever, and isn’t dressed for the weather. Plus her phone is dead, and she really needs to check in on her mother who has special needs, and isn’t used to being home alone.

In the care next to her is Sam. Sam is American and on his way to the airport to get a flight home. He senses her distress, and offers her use of his phone charger and his warm car. For eight hours, they talk and both feel the pull of attraction, but Sam has a girlfriend. They part ways without even exchanging numbers.

Fate has other ideas for them, and through all sorts of random encounters, they keep being pushed together. In spite of both of their attempts to pull away. For those who believe in the serendipity of the universe, this will be the romance of your dreams, and for those who think otherwise, the many ways that their lives keep intertwining may seem far fetched.

As a hopeless romantic, I loved this book. I thought the way they kept finding each other, and the many twists and turns in their lives to get them to this point were cleverly crafted. There is a wonderful cast of side characters that you grow to care about (and some who you don’t), and so many wonderful moments between our two main characters. This book is the definition of a slow burn romance!

Thanks so much to Lia Louis, Atria Books, and Emily Bestler Books for supplying me with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review!
