Summary from Goodreads
“She has just two weeks. Two weeks to teach him how to fall in love – with his own life.Despite her determination, Christine knows what a dangerous promise she’s made. Against the ticking of the clock, the two of them embark on wild escapades, grand romantic gestures and some unlikely late-night outings. Slowly, Christine thinks Adam is starting to fall back in love with his life. But has she done enough to change his mind for good? And is that all that’s starting to happen?”Adam Basil and Christine Rose are thrown together late one night, when Christine is crossing the Halfpenny Bridge in Dublin. Adam is there, poised, threatening to jump. Adam is desperate – but Christine makes a crazy deal with him. His 35th birthday is looming and she bets him she can show him that life is worth living before then.
How To Fall in Love are beautiful, unique, touching, and a heart-warming story. This book has a great structure of plot and subplots, along with some very thought-provoking words and events, this book was a highly enjoyable, captivating, and lovable read for me. I loved the main characters, Christine and Adam straight from the beginning. What I liked was they both are a bit broken. The book is about a period of two weeks and when you read it, you realised that life can change during a short time. This book will makes you think about your own life. I’m happy this book has such a good ending.
“Where would be without tomorrows? What we’d have instead would be todays. And if that was the case, with you, I’d hope for the longest days for today I’d fill today with you, doing everything I’ve ever loved. I’d laugh, I’d talk, I’d listen and learn, I’d love, I’d love, I’d love. I’d make every day today and spend them all with you, and I’d never worry about tomorrow, when I wouldn’t be with you. And when that dreaded tomorrow comes for us, please know that I didn’t want to leave you, or be left behind, that every single moment spent with you were the best times in my life. “
