Summary:

Space is the last thing an event planner and astronaut needs in this charming new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young.

When event planner Holly Goodman receives party supplies from a bride from her latest wedding project, the last thing she expects to find in the files are digital videos of Darcy’s ex-boyfriend. Hallie knows you can’t keep watching these private videos, but this guy is cute, funny, and an astronaut on the International Space Station. She is only human. And soon she’ll start sending emails and video logs to his NASA address, which doesn’t work. Since they bounce back, no one will ever be able to see them…right?

Christopher Ortiz adjusts to life on earth and is constantly in the shadow of his deceased older brother. When a friend in NASA’s IT department forwards him the emails and video messages Holly sent, he can’t help but notice how heart-pounding her sense of humor and pink hair make his heart skip a beat.

Separated by screens, Holly and Chris fall for each other, one show at a time. But will they be able to make their star-studded romance work when each finds out about the other’s baggage?

*ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review*

All my life I have been chasing, pleasing people. No one ever chased me. No one ever gave me my priorities the way I wanted them.

This poor book had the unfortunate circumstance of being read in a year when 95% of the time I rated every book 5 stars. I mean, I had almost a whole year of perfection, and this book was not…it.

It was sweet, cute, and typically romantic, but I just never fully got into it. I can’t say it was bad, but I can’t say it was very well written either….and again, I don’t think it was poorly written. This book was just stunningly average and I didn’t feel much depth and I’m honestly at a loss for words. And while I sometimes don’t mind quick romances with a character I really like (and I really liked him), sometimes I just don’t fall for it as easily as I usually do. Here, unfortunately, it is.

A little too predictable, a little lacking in side characters that kept me interested, and just… no to believe it is no matter HOW strangled a few hero quotes made me. And that’s what really stinks is that some great things were mentioned about self-respect and accepting who you are, about loving a person as he is not what they DO. There was a lot of good stuff to unpack here, but not much to go on… and this is where the story unfortunately failed for me.

So, while this book will probably appeal to a lot of people, I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe another time, maybe another place in my life… but I just really doubt it. If you’re looking for a cute, fun, quick read, then I highly recommend it for that. Otherwise, if you might want to more to make it happen, maybe save it for a rainy day.
