Recieved: An arc from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Pre-Order: Amazon


May Falkner’s past two years have been a rough road. When her father suddenly passes away, May needs to find a job to help out her mom and regain some control over her life. Working at the bookstore helps her heal, laugh, and hope again. It also leads her to cross paths with Nico Evitts, who begins as just a co-worker, but becomes so much more
When it all becomes perfect, because there is no perfect, life steps in to prove once again that it all can crash down harder than before. This is a story about finding yourself, love, and the things in life that are still here.
Hearts are like balloons. Sometimes they inflate… Sometimes they deflate… 


This was an adorable read that truly was a slice of life. This book was a mixture of happy and sad and I honestly never knew how to feel at any point. 

The book begins with the tragic death of May’s father and the rest of the novel is May and her mother learning to cope and learning to live their lives normally again. As the story goes on and May meets Nico the story goes up and down with cute and happy events and then sad events that feel a lot like the bumps and happy times of real life. 

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy fluffy contemporaries and are also in need of a good cry. 

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this review.
