When Hannah meets Sonny, she’s irresistibly drawn to him: he’s sexy and confident, but only in town on holiday. That’s fine with Hannah – she doesn’t do long-term relationships. And luckily for her, neither does Sonny. But before they can even so much as kiss, Sonny receives some shocking news and commits to making serious life changes – ones that can’t and won’t include romance.
With even a short fling now off the cards, Hannah and Sonny settle for being friends. But as summer hots up and their chemistry shows no signs of cooling, they start to question their reasons for shutting each other out.
Are they both too broken to find love? And if they tear down the walls between them, will they still like what’s on the other side?
WOW!!! Another ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC and INCREDIBLE novel by Paige Toon has arrived and, once again, I found myself hooked from the very beginning.
It’s been a very long wait for the new novel by Paige Toon (or, at least, it seemed very long), but it was well worth it. The Minute I Saw You is a splendid and unforgettable novel that gripped me and didn’t let me go. It’s been a few days since I finished reading it and I am still thinking about it, about its protagonist, Hannah and Sonny, and their beautiful and emotional story.
I quickly fell in love with the characters of Hannah and Sonny. They are authentic and engaging. Hannah and Sonny also are damaged, they have demons and secrets from their past that they still need to face, so they decide that the best thing for both is to be just friend. Of course, that it is easier said than done and the more time they spend together the harder it is for them to stay away from each other. The chemistry between Hannah and Sonny was electrical, you could feel it through the pages, and I loved how their relationship evolved. Their stories are moving and my heart broke and it warmed for them at the same time.
Paige Toon is one of my favourite authors. Her novels always capture my heart and I enjoy rereading them over and over again. The Minute I Saw You quickly became one of my favourite novels, it is romantic, immersive, and poignant with beautiful and evocative descriptions of Cambridge that made me wish I was there. If you are looking for something special, then The Minute I Saw You is the right read!
