This Is the Book, For Reals

I’ve been holding off writing this post because I feel like I need to say something epic, because I’m just so freaking happy right now. It’s the book birthday of my delightful, amazing, truly fabulous critique partner and bestie, A.J. Pine.

IF ONLY is live in the world.

Oh book birthday you might pooh pooh. But I’m telling you: this book. this author. I would tell you to one click buy it even if it cost $13.99. Because it’s a sweet love story, a delightful life abroad coming-of-age as an adult, spectacular and SMART book. For some odd reason, it’s being sold at 99 pennies. Which means you probably should buy at least 14 copies. For your college roommate. For the first person you shared an apartment with (haha thin walls). For the best friend who held you hand as you mourned your first failed romance. And then your second. And definitely one for each person who adores books with movie quotes and who loves literature.

I’m telling you, this is the book.

About If Only:


Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong.

It’s been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it’s been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now.

Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend.

Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen. But E. M. Forster, Shakespeare, and mistletoe on Valentine’s Day make her reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy.
