Numbers are everywhere—they play such a vital role in our everyday lives. But what would happen if we measured love with equations just as we do our morning cup of coffee? My nana had many recipes in her cupboards, but it was her calculations for love that she insisted I live my life by; and I’ve followed her rules all these years.

One Animal
One Moment
One Critical Impact

That’s all it took for the numbers to start flying in a jumbled mess through my brain as I stared into the violet eyes that would forever make me question my choices. In a split second, the possibilities and reality of true love are revealed and I’m questioning all I’ve ever known.

A Tree
White Fences
Stolen Moments

I can’t ignore the storm brewing around—and within—me. Everything I am is confronted by these new numbers, and all they represent. My past, present and future will all be determined by the gambles I make right here, right now. Again, it’s all about the numbers.

And what I’m learning is, one plus one doesn’t always equal two and sometimes three times isn't always the charm.

My Thoughts:
"I don't think love is ever wrong, even if it hurts, even if it scared you. You learn from it, become a better person, use what you've learned for the next time around."

Brielle has a rating system for the guys shes with because her grandma's parting words. They were about not finding her soul mate or the perfect guy, she would be lucky to get a guy who is at least 60% perfect for her and she should accept it. Which made Victor a perfect candidate for her being at 60%. When Brielle was in an accident the EMT who helped her, Darwin, pretty much captured her heart and that when she started to put him on the rating scale. Darwin managed to score higher on the scale than Victor was. Perfect match for her Right? She should ditch Victor and be with Darwin Right? Wrong, Darwin is married and she is on her way to going down the isle with Victor. As their connection between each other grows something they can't deny the unthinkable happens.

"Everybody makes mistakes. Then don't ruin your life unless you let them. Rachael let them ruin her life. Don't let your mistakes ruin yours. They don't define you; they make you grow the fuck up,"

This is a story of love loss and finding love again. Sheesh poor Brielle can't catch a break. She has a sucky Mum and stepfather, the parent figure she did love, her grandmother, dies and things just cant seem to go right. Brielle did at times seem annoying but trying to understand her character I can get why she was that way. I loved how supportive and caring her best friend was. I loved the connection between Brielle and the guys. (I didn't wanna kill the book by saying who but I did love the connection between her and the guys.) Trust me when I say this is one of those books you going to want a couple hours cleared for. I finished this book within a day and I loved the book.

This is the second story I've came across by Shannon Mayer and I absolutely loved. This book is heart breaking and heart warming and your going to want to get your hands on this book. Highly recommend you lovely readers check it out. 5 of 5 Stars!
