Synopsis

Nov-10Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.

Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day of her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

My Review

Colleen Hoover’s one-of-a-kind style of storytelling shines with November 9—a story about a boy and a girl who fall in love, one day at a time. But it’s also so much more. It’s lines of words that tell the story of a girl scarred by an event that made her feel less, made her feel abandoned. A girl whose dreams vanquished with the flames that ravaged her. It’s about a boy, a writer—Benton Kessler—who searches for inspiration and finds it the day that fate pushed him to meet Fallon O’ Neil.

Fallon and Ben meet on her last day in L.A., before she moves to New York City. Ben’s unexpected, easygoing and entirely charming demeanor unnerves Fallon… in the best possible way.

For Fallon, he turns a day marred with frustration and bad memories to a day marked by laughter and surprises.

“When I woke up this morning, I thought today was going to be one of the toughest days I’ve had in two years. Who knew the anniversary of the worst day of my life might possibly end on a good note.”

For Ben, he begins to fall for a girl who hides behind the cards she’s been dealt, but whose feistiness, verve and beauty, win him over all the same. Fallon becomes the muse he’s been hoping for, and a story begins to write itself with each moment they experience.

“You can’t leave yet. I’m not finished falling in love with you.”

Before the day is over, they’re not ready to say goodbye. So they agree to meet once a year, for five years, on November 9th. No contact whatsoever… leaving destiny to play out as it will.

“November 9th or nothing.”

They come together and come apart each year as circumstances change. Their story arcs and morphs into a once-in-a-lifetime romance, but not before plot twists threaten everything they’ve held on to so dearly.

“When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.”

Ben and Fallon’s story is irresistible—I couldn’t help but fall in love with them from the very beginning. Their chemistry leaps of the page with humor, passion and an endearing realness. Moreover, Hoover enlivens the story with her intangible magic where every moment feels larger than life, meaningful, and somehow entirely novel in its approach. With November 9, she once again proves that New Adult remains in the game with fresh and exciting stories impossible to forget. I dare you not to fall in love with Ben and Fallon.
