Jennifer E. Smith writes books with intriguing synopses. Once upon a time, I was dying to read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. I preordered a hardcover copy because I just knew I’d love it…and I found myself very disappointing. I liked the plot, but the characters, pacing, and romance fell flat for me. But I was more than willing to give Smith a second chance with The Geography of You and Me. Again, loved the synopsis and the matchy cover art (I’m kind of a sucker for adorable matching series, like with Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and…you get it). Unfortunately, this book has assured that I probably won’t pick up another by Smith. The Geography of You and Me is a pleasant enough read, but it’s not for me.
Lucy and Owen meet one fateful day when they get stuck in an elevator together.
