This book was wonderful! I loved, LOVED all the amazing moments that felt perfect and were just what I want from a rom-com, but it was more than that. This book had emotion, heart, happiness, love, and life. I am enamored with it.
I really settled into these characters and this story. I enjoyed the POVs, and they felt fresh and new! This is absolutely a romance novel, but it feels real and fun at the same time. There were some heavy topics that were covered, and they were handled well. It was a great balance between life and love.
Readers that enjoy character-driven stories that really show all sides of life, this one is perfect! So, here’s my problem, this is a debut book, and I don’t have another book by Stephanie Mack to read yet!
Where to Find This Book:
“Perfect for fans of You’ve Got Mail, Redeeming Love, and What Alice Forgot, When We Blinked is a moving and magical contemporary romance about the sightless moments that change the course of our lives.”
Is Love Truly Blind?
Newly split from her husband and college sweetheart, Seraphina Jones has returned to work after four years as a stay-at-home mom. She loves her job at prestigious Hamilton Hotels & Resorts, but her transition from play dates to pencil skirts is proving wobbly at best.
Encouraged to rediscover her romantic side, Sera agrees to try hot new dating app Blinde, aimed at millennials tired of swipe culture. The differentiator? Blinde doesn’t allow any pictures. Instead, the wildly popular platform fosters connections through meaningful conversations, inviting the age-old question: Is true love actually blind?
Sera soon finds herself freshly confident, succeeding at work, and smitten by not one, but several men: gorgeous heir to the Hamilton throne, Graham Hamilton; irresistible dark horse Jack, slowly winning her heart via Blinde; and Connor, her ex, the only man she’s ever loved.
But even though Sera thinks she’s juggling three different suitors—the truth is, there are only two. Unbeknownst to Sera, Connor is posing as invisible hottie Jack, secretly allowing her to get to know him all over again, as if for the very first time. Could love at second sight change everything for Sera and Connor? Or will she want a clean slate with dreamy Graham?
Set against the backdrops of sunny Southern California and the whimsical Wyoming mountains, When We Blinked provides a timely, unforgettable portrait of modern love—the mistakes that shape us, the ties that bind us, and the grace that can make us new.
