I received an e-copy of this from Harper Collins UK, Harper Impulse through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not really a fan of summer flings or vacation flings or holiday flings. Name it. But I do think that some people can actually fall in love in such situation. As much as I'd like to believe in Guy and Emma's love, I just can't. I don't know why. It didn't seem real to me in some ways. I know Guy was hot. Of course, Emma was attracted and all. But I just don't feel it. And I know I'm part of minority here because a lot of reviewers loved this one. Really, I just didn't feel their connection when they got together during that time at the campsite. Even in the present time. So yes, I was really at the neutral ground for them.
I'd be honest that I found a lot of things to be cliche here. I'm a fan of cliches, trust me. Especially when there's a big turn of events at the middle. But this just didn't work for me. Maybe because I wasn't able to connect to the characters. Like I've said, I didn't feel their connection.
The mystery behind that day was really a shock for both of them. I was expecting something worst so I wasn't really surprised when it was something like that. Still, it was a great twist for the story.
I think the story wasn't just really for me at this time. I didn't like it. But I didn't dislike it either. So it was just an okay read for me.
Still, I'd recommend everyone to read Do You Remember. It might be your kind of read for the day.
