Blurb:After the best first date ever, Lee thought Laura was funny, intelligent, and impulsive; a whirlwind of bright laughter and happiness. Laura loved Lee’s sweet smile and the way he expertly filled in every awkward pause. He held her hand and then pulled her in for the most perfect kiss she’s had in years. What could possibly be wrong? Just the 7000 miles that separates them the next day.
Even though Lee has gone home to Seoul, Laura can’t stop thinking about him. What starts as an innocent text thanking him for their dinner date becomes something much more: someone either of them can’t live without. But Laura’s got a live-in mother going through a midlife crisis, and Lee’s stressful traveling schedule means they’ll be apart for some time. Life, family, and a complicated past also get in the way, and they’re both going to need actual face time to figure it out.
Long distance relationships and communication via Internet are so common that it was great to read a book, where were both involved. I’m happy I found this book and I really enjoyed reading it.
Laura, who is waiting for friends, who didn’t actually show up at a bar, she accidentally meets Lee, with whom she ends up going on a date the very next day. It is their first and last date before Lee has to leave for Korea again, where he lives. They start communicating via Face time and text messages, and they love spending time together, nonetheless the fact that it’s just virtual. They have several wonderful dates online and it’s not always easy and wonderful, they also face hard times, but they overcome the issues. As logical, the relationship can’t stay just online, and so do they meet up in person after all the time they spent online and they are just meant for one another, despite the family drama which comes from both sides.
I really enjoyed reading about Lee and Laura, it’s a wonderful modern love story.
