Genre: Chick Lit

Goodreads blurb: 

Have you ever wondered what might have been?

Gemma Dawson is at the airport, staring at two plane tickets to two different cities. Two different weddings. Two possible futures. She’s at a crossroads.

Be maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding or crash her ex’s?

Gemma’s decision, unknown to her, hinges on a delayed flight and a chance meeting. Now her life is about to go down two parallel tracks—will Gemma fly toward a life with her first love or a future with a man she’s not even met yet? 

Love Connection is a feel good Romantic Comedy about one woman, life’s infinite possibilities, and the destiny that lies beyond two different choices.


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 really change much or is fate guiding her to the same place either way?

Gemma is such a fun character. In fact, all of the characters here are loads of fun. Besides Gemma you have her best friend Amelia. The two are quite the pair and they have a deep friendship full of humor and true understanding. Several of their scenes made me giggle and after finishing such a heavy novel a bit of lighthearted fun was exactly what I needed. Jake is Gemma’s ex and the one that got away. He’s moved on and is getting married on the same day as Amelia, hence Gemma’s huge decision. Lastly there is Richard who is the new man in Gemma’s life. He is utterly charming and quite the catch but Gemma can’t quite seem to completely let go of her past and embrace her future.

It was really fun and interesting to read this one. Every chapter alternates between both choices; one chapter with Gemma heading to Amelia’s wedding and the other to Jake’s. I was dying to see how it would all end and I was not disappointed, although I’m rather eager for book two in the series now! Filled with witty banter, humor and heart Love Connection is a delightful read that will make you feel good and leave you with a smile on your face. In fact, I smiled most of the way through this book and still am!

Overall rating: 4/5

Thanks to the author for my copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Love your review and that cover is so cute. ❤️ My favorite poem is The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, and I love this idea for a book. Super cute. It sort of reminds me of the romance version of Dark Matter with making choices about what’s the right life to choose. All these fabulous reviews of yours are really adding to my TBR. 🙂
