Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day of her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel.

Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?

*Spoiler-Free* REVIEW: November 9 by Colleen Hoover
Publication Date: November 10th, 2015

Review:

Colleen Hoover writes books and characters that I fall in love with. Not just any love. But insta-love. I know for many people, insta-love is the kiss of death. But how else can I describe the visceral feeling I get when reading those first few chapters. The butterflies in my stomach, the breathlessness of my lungs, the palpitations of my racing heart.

Reading the first chapters of November 9 was like falling in love for the very first time. It's not perfect and you don't know everything there is to know, but there's something so special and unique about the unknown, the mystery of it all, that begs you to find out: What if?

As the story progresses the whirlwind fairytale gets tested and pushed to the limits. There are moments when the entire foundation could easily turn to quicksand, breaking apart everything that Ben and Fallon stand upon. These characters are flawed. Their pasts are flawed. That insta-love begins to transform into love for these characters for their triumphs over these obstacles and in spite of their flaws.

For the cynical, for the staunch realists, I will say, yes, you may have to suspend your disbelief in some aspects of this fictional novel, and if you can, I feel you will be handsomely rewarded. What I loved most was being swept into this story and carried on a roller coaster journey to a happily ever after. I was left with just one wish at the end: to experience one more November 9. And maybe even one more after that. And another after that...
