Barnes & Noble:

Colleen Hoover has once again managed to tear my heart out of my chest, break it and put it back together again with her newest novel, November 9! A story so heartbreaking and heart warming at the same time, I was enraptured by the very first page and read it in one sitting, as I couldn't put it down without knowing what happens with this amazing couple, each broken in their own way, finding each other, and putting the pieces back together so that they could find their way to a perfect love, together. This book was a 4 star read for me and I know that you will not be disappointed if you one click this!

Fallon O'Neill had it all, a passion and talent that few possess and even fewer get to live as their life, until one day it is stripped away. Not knowing how to move forward with her life, or what her new passion will become, Fallon still holds so much anger, resentment and hurt inside, that she cages herself away from everyone, including herself. When she meets Ben the mysteriously attractive writer when he tries to rescue her from her overbearingly blunt father, he sparks feelings that she has long since buried. But a promise of herself, not to fall in love until she has lived her life, until she is twenty-three years old stops her from seeing what Ben and her could possibly become together.

Ben is a student who yearns to be a writer. Wanting to rid himself of the secrets of his past, writing a novel is what he desires most; until he meets the gaze of Fallon in a restaurant one day. Taking a chance to rescue her, for reasons he doesn't even understand, from the harsh words her father slings her way; Ben becomes facinated by the girl who seems to want to hide from the world. After spending the day together, as her boyfriend Ben doesn't want their time to end, but Fallon is moving across the country.

Together, Ben and Fallon make a pact to meet every November 9th for the next four years, he is to write his novel based on their story and once the novel is completed they will try to see if a relationship will work. That is unless one of them falls in love before then. With Ben keeping secrets from Fallon that could crush their relationship before it starts, with a tragedy that changes his life forever, and a discovery by Fallon; the reader waits with bated breathe to see if these two can make it past everything holding them back so that they can grab onto the love they have for each other and never let go. Will November 9th be all that they have or are they destined for more? You will have to read to find out.

Oh Colleen Hoover what it would be like to walk a day in your mind, im pretty sure I would pay top dollar! November 9 was freaking fantastic! Huge 5 stars! This book was definitely an emotional roller coaster of epic proportions. This book you will need some tissues, even though the emotional portion of it will be heart wrenching at times there is so much more to this story. So put on your comfy clothes sit in your favorite reading spot because you will be there for a while because once you open this book you will not put it down until you get all the answers you will seek through this whole journey!

The passion Fallon and Ben have for each other is a lifetime kind of love and they will prove it to one another over years that no matter how much time is spent apart feelings and true love will never change... but with secrets being concealed will true love win out or will the damage be to hard to recover from?

You will not be disappointed with this story I guarantee it. Thanks Colleen for another great fantastic love story that will stand out in my mind for years to come as so many of your books already do. I never would have thought anything could ever top your Slammed series but you have proven me so wrong through your many stories over the past couple years and I look forward to much more in the near future!

I am not even sure where to start with this review. I definitely feel emotionally drained. I have previously felt emotional levels with other books this year but this one.... this one had tears streaming down my face. My heart got shattered into a million tiny pieces and I am not sure if all those pieces were put back together by the end. With each book Colleen Hoover manages to steal just another little piece

November 9 had the whole gamut of emotional range: from euphoric bliss, angst, sadness, love - pure and unfiltered, humor... and all of those warred back and forth.

Every story of Colleen Hoover's is new and refreshing, and explores a different avenue you might not have even known existed.

We meet Fallon O'Neil having lunch with her father, explaining her future plans. Their relationship is strained at best due to hurt, bitterness and resentment. You see, Fallon was an up and coming actress until a tragic accident leaves her scarred; forever ruining the Hollywood ideal of beautiful.

Benton Kessler (an aspiring writer) is sitting next to them in the restaurant and decides to swoop in and save Fallon; the premise of being a fake boyfriend. They hit it off with levels of fascination and attraction but their time is limited to mere hours. They forge a pack to meet every November 9.

I feel as though I've said too much already. What happens over the course of 5 November 9's? Everything.

I'll leave you with one of my favorite lines:

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.

p.s. Go one-click this now!

WOW! Colleen Hoover's November 9 was an amazing read. Once I picked this book up, I did not want to put it down. The story pulls you in and you find yourself transported. I warn you though, your emotions will be slung all over the place, so have a couple of tissues ready.

So many times we read stories that while we can connect with the characters and the story, something is still lacking. Not with this one. Fallon and Ben have much to overcome if they want to be together for the rest of their lives, and Ben wants to save her, but he has his own skeletons in the closet that could come between them. Add the fact that Fallon moved and now they are separated by distance as well...Don't give up on them quite yet. They have a plan.

Pick up the book and read it! I promise you will love it!
