Publisher's Summary

What if you almost missed the love of your life?

Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.

Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.

One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:

To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors.... Drink sometime?

So begins a not-quite-romance of near-misses, true love, and the power of the written word.

A wonderfully funny will-they-won’t-they romance told with real emotional honesty, perfect for those who loved Sally Thorne’s 99% Mine and Helena Hunting’s Meet Cute.

Critic Reviews

"A fresh, smart, modern rom com. This is romance seen through the wry eyes of a cynic, and that's what makes it so special – and, ultimately, so uplifting. It had me totally gripped." (Beth O’Leary)

"The joyful, romantic and life-affirming love story you need in your suitcase this summer!" (Red Magazine)

"Tender, energetic and authentic...Such a current love story, but so timeless too. I adored Nadia and Daniel." (Daisy Buchanan)

missed connection

I saw previous comments about frustrations over the coincidences in the book.. And I'm going through, enjoying the narration and the premise of finding each other over the missed connections.. but the previous reviewers were right.. it was just too much... It became less of a cute story to a frustrating tale of near misses too many times over. I mostly finished just to finish. Narration was delightful. Read the Flatshare. It's far more satisfying.

Trying for PC

Tried so hard to be PC that characters became flat and fake. Male characters were all "feminists", or what this generation thinks is feminist. Not holding women to the same standards that you would hold a man... that seems really off kilter, though.

Female was using other characters for selfish needs. Male counterpart was neutered and really, really unattractive for anything other than a girlfriend.

Just cut this off with an hour to go on a car trip. Sat in silence, bc I decided I didn't care what happened to any of these characters. Shallow book.

Disappointed

I went into this one with no expectations but was truly disappointed in the overall story. The MC was just incredibly selfish and I couldn’t get past that. I like to always finish books so I pushed through but really didn’t want to. I really want to ask for my credit back.

I thought this was very cute

I hesitated in buying this one at first because people were calling it a copy of The Flatshare among other things, but it's not. Sure, there are similarities, but overall it's a good story on its own and not a flat out copy of anything.

Too Many Coincidences

The premise is cute but the many coincidences is ridiculous. A person almost never bumps into someone they know in a big city, let alone multiple times. Also, there were few parts that seem inconsistent. Daniel is an awkward, nerdy engineer who is too shy to even say "hello" to a stranger. Then there's a scene where he's chatting easily with Nadia's colleague Gabby.

Flatshare knock off

If you liked Flatshare, which really is pretty good, you will be attracted to this title. It is essentially the same story. But the premise is much thinner-- they fall in love with each other remotely but not at all believably. I don't think it is worth the credit.

DNF (36 Chapter in and the characters had not met)

I wanted to love it so badly. The idea seemed pretty good and I was intrigued. This was one was so disappointing and it makes me sad. It claimed it had everything that I love - England, meet cute, romance - but I was left wanting with this one. I liked the whole concept of seeing someone on the train everyday, not knowing them yet wanting to meet them. If you have ever ridden a train to work everyday seeing the same people, you know how charging it can be to connect eyes with a stranger on the train and wonder “what if.” Unfortunately it just too long to get going for me. The first half of the book was too slow, and more focused on both of the characters' families and friends, rather than on them. It focussed on unimportant things, and it dragged. So much so that I was no longer interested in what happened with the characters, whether they got together or not. There was also a bit on consent, which is very important, but it was dealt with in such a heavy handed way. It seemed to come out of the blue and just didn't fit with the story.

I also felt that there was too much telling and not enough showing in this book. Even the sex scenes were a bit 'fade to black,' and there were so many long, boring monologues, it was a bit frustrating. But I could have held on if the characters had actually met and had a relationship that they were working on. At some point, Nadia starts dating some other guy and I was just confused as to what was happening... like isn't this supposed to be Nadia and Daniel's love story? The closer we came to the end, the more forced and unnatural it felt that they just kept missing one another and still hadn't found a chance to meet up. There were just too many missed chances where they should have met but didn't because of some reason of another. A few of these were cute, but then it got a bit ridiculous. How are we supposed to root for a couple when we can't feel anything between them? I normally love a slow burn... and most of the stories I read are long and drawn out but this seemed like was being played with and teased the further I got a long with no real promise of said relationship. It is hard to have a good romantic comedy if the two main characters never meet each other. This build up took too long. I lost interest quite early when it seemed like the two would never meet. I felt like it was a waste of my time. Not sure this could be considered a romance at all. My first ever DNF.

The humor in this book was very limited and unfunny, leaning more towards the cringy side of the spectrum. And don't get me started on the endless stream of side characters... Not to mention the security guard Romeo who the main character describes as "acting black" and I just wonder what the author was thinking there...I just couldn't take it... and had to sit the book down for a minute.
