Space is the last thing an event planner and an astronaut need in this charming new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young.
When event planner Hallie Goodman receives party-inspiration material from the bride of her latest wedding project, the last thing she expects to find in the files are digital videos from Darcy’s ex-boyfriend. Hallie knows it’s wrong to keep watching these personal videos, but this guy is cute, funny, and an astronaut on the International Space Station to boot. She’s only human. And it’s not long until she starts sending e-mails and video diaries to his discontinued NASA address. Since they’re bouncing back, there’s no way anyone will ever be able to see them…right?
Christopher Ortiz is readjusting to life on earth and being constantly in the shadow of his deceased older brother. When a friend from NASA’s IT department forwards him the e-mails and video messages Hallie has sent, he can’t help but notice how much her sense of humor and pink hair make his heart race.
Separated by screens, Hallie and Chris are falling in love with each other, one transmission at a time. But can they make their star-crossed romance work when they each learn the other’s baggage?
A Cosmic Kind of Love is a fun and entertaining romantic comedy by author Samantha Young.
A Cosmic Kind of Love follows the story of Hallie and Chris. When event planner, Hallie receives an inspiration file from one of her clients, the last thing she expected were videos of her client’s ex, Chris. Hallie knows it’s wrong, but can’t help but watch the videos and before long, Hallie finds herself making and sending video diaries of her own to Chris. Even when Hallie’s emails bounce back, it doesn’t deter her from putting herself out there. Hallie and Chris’s connection starts out rather unconventional, but somehow these two start to fall for one another one transmission at a time.
Overall, I thought this book was such a cute and unique read. I loved the way that Hallie and Chris’s story started out. It was refreshing and unconventional. I loved getting to know Chris and Hallie. They were perfectly imperfect, with flaws and real insecurities. Their family lives were far from perfect and they were both no strangers to life’s disappointments. I think both of these characters experienced a lot of growth and I loved following their journey to happily ever after.
If I had one complaint about this book it would be that it had a bit of a slow start to it. It seemed to take a bit to really get the flow going, but once it did, I couldn’t put it down.
In the end, Samantha Young delivered a sweet and fun romantic comedy that kept me entertained and unable to walk away.
