Maya Maas likes to daydream the strangers around her into perfect meet cutes and HEA’s. She gives them fake names and scenarios and writes them in her journal.

She decides to surprise her boyfriend in SF from NY on her birthday weekend while he’s on a business trip. When she arrives she texts to see if he’ll pick her up and a Lift driver asks if she’s the blond from the other night, ruining all her plans. Because she’s a brunette 😳

After texting back and forth, the Lift driver convinces her to take a day trip to Carmel by the Sea and she has an unforgettable day while texting him the whole time.

When they were supposed to meet, her boyfriend shows up and tells her she misunderstood and she goes back with him and wonders what would have been. Ok, a year goes by.

Then a upcoming book about a Lift driver who falls in love and gets his heart broken is about to come out and she goes in search of the truth of that day.

Omg I loved this book! I’m so much better in text and writing that’s how I started off dating my husband. The perfect day was so sweet and was a nice idea for someone who’s life just got pulled out from under them.

The settings of Carmel and Napa are places I grew up in so that was so fun going places I knew or finding places I haven’t been. I spent time in the Valley where my Grandparents lived now I need to go to Carmel by the Sea. Those cottages sound so cute!

I loved how she cut off the toxic pieces of her life and went in search of this small piece of happiness from this one day to see if it could be more happy days. We don’t always need to hold on to relationships just cause we’ve put time into them if they are treating us badly.

This gave me all the feels!

I kept wondering about that sweatshirt! 

Thank you aria fiction and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

Synopsis:

What if the Lift driver who finds your cheating boyfriend’s phone holds the directions to true love?

‘Who are you and why do you have my boyfriend’s phone?’
‘He left it in my car. You must be the blonde in the red dress? I’m the Lift driver who dropped you two off earlier.’

And with these words, the life of the brunette and t-shirt wearing Maya Maas is turned upside down. Having planned to surprise her boyfriend, she finds herself single and stranded in an unknown city on her birthday.

So when the mystery driver rescues Maya with the suggestion that she cheers herself up at a nearby beach town, she jumps at the chance to get things back on track. She wasn’t expecting a personalised itinerary or the easy companionship that comes from opening up to a stranger via text, let alone the possibility it might grow into something more…>
