Let me tell you, I have not lost this much sleep due to an AWESOME book since I read the Twilight Saga. Lauren Hunter's time-travel romance, The Coffee Shop, was so enchanting and captivating that I could not put it down. Literally. I even put my own writing aside, because I needed to know what was going to happen to Derrick and Annie next. From the moment Derrick met Annie at The Coffee Shop until he brought her there again, I was enthralled with their re_lationship....and baffled by it.
Derrick and Annie's bantering had me smiling to myself every time. I felt their attraction to each other so deeply that I felt I was in their relationship. And Derrick's friendship with his best friend, Brian, was just as entertaining. They had me laughing and they had me crying. Never have I felt such emotions reading someone else's novel.
I don't want to leave you with plot details, because I would give things away by doing so. And I would love for you to be just as surprised with every turn of the page as I was.
Go buy this book. Really...it was THAT good. (Just click anywhere on this review to go to her page.)
