After a bad encounter at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, Natalie had just about given up… but then Rob came to her rescue. Every year since they meet on New Year’s Eve… until one year they didn’t, due to a misunderstanding.

While I enjoyed the story, I was frustrated with Natalie. She had a backbone, which I appreciated. What frustrated me about her was when she chose to assert the backbone. There were moments when I thought she was too hard on Rob, but not nearly as hard as she should be with her ex-boyfriend. I understood why she was hard on Rob. I truly understood; a conversation could have saved them both some heartache, especially the hopeless romantic, Natalie. However, she felt like a pushover with ex-boyfriend, Troy. For me, her brother Ian made up for what annoyed me about Natalie. What I did like about Natalie was in the end, she owned up to her own faults and misgivings.

The fun and easy banter between Natalie and Rob were endearing and they made a fantastic couple. The narration was spot on. The voices for each character matched what I saw in my imagination. It’s an enjoyable and quick read/listen. Give it a try!
