Hey it’s the weekend, how did that happen so quickly? I feel like I blinked and missed this week, it’s crazy. The good thing about that is that it’s meant I’ve only had one book to concentrate on, so today I am sharing with you my thoughts on An Impossible Thing Called Love and there is a giveaway that is open internationally.
A second chance at love…
When globe-trotting Emmy first fell for first-aider William on a freezing New Year’s Eve, she really believed that their love would go the distance.
But when she returns to Australia, her letters start to go unanswered and her emails bounce back unread, Emmy decides it’s time to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and start afresh in London.
So she’s shocked when William walks in on her very first day at her new job! Even worse, he’s hotter than ever. But why did he disappear for so long? What has he been hiding? And could this really be their second chance at falling in love…?

I do really like second chance love stories, I think it’s because I know there is going to be some proper issues to overcome by the characters to find their way back to each other and there is a base of chemistry to build on.
And my goodness did William and Emmy have chemistry, from their first meeting they just clicked, both very funny together, enviably they are both able to concoct witty responses that made me laugh too. You could definitely feel the connection between them and the happiness that after forgetting to swap details that chance pushes them together again to do so.
I loved the letters back and forth between them, it was nice to get to know William a bit better, to see the connection grow and to kind of mark the passing of time as well. I was really disappointed for Emmy when things start to go unanswered, I know that distance was always an obstacle anyway but I did feel the sting of the unknown right alongside her.
Of course, when they meet again they are both in very different situations and there is the will they/won’t they dance, have they changed too much to get along or has too much happened in each of their lives to even think about having any sort of connection. I liked the drama that arises out of them finding each other again, there were a few incidences that I felt Emmy was making too much of an issue of what was happening but I wouldn’t have wanted plain sailing either.
This is definitely one of those books that lifts your spirits, it’s funny, sweet and has some pretty wonderful characters, if you enjoy a second chance romance then you should pick this book up!
