Beautifully tender and unforgettably funny, prepare to fall in love with this modern-day nod to a classic romantic comedy.

Ever since their chance encounter as seatmates on the plane ride from hell, Harry “Harrison” Fields and Harry “Henry” Lee have had a love-hate relationship. But every time their paths have crossed over the years, they’ve grown to like each other more and more, even developing an unlikely friendship.

Now, Harrison is a fun-loving music teacher who wears his heart on his sleeve, and Henry is a hard-driving business man who’s still striving to get out of his father’s shadow.

As they go through life’s inevitable heartaches and losses, their friendship only deepens. Sure, there’s always been a simmering attraction between them but nothing worth threatening their friendship over...until one of them takes things too far. But when a valuable friendship hangs in the balance, is a chance at romance worth the price?

I knew I had to read this. The title is cute, the cover is cute, the summary is fun, and it is a nice nod to a romantic classic. 

Harry "Harrison" and Harry "Henry" had a chance encounter as seatmates on a plane ride from hell. They couldn't be more different! Some years pass and they meet again! The more and more they see each other the more they like each other and develop an unlikely friendship. As they go through life's heartaches and losses, their friendship deepens but things go haywire when one of them takes things too far and muddy the friendship. Could this be love? 

This was a cute novel. We have enemies who turn to friendship and then finalllyyyyy love. It was a long journey and there were times I was throwing a tantrum because OMG JUST KISS ALREADY! There is obv an attraction, but they have their own things going and they both don't see it right away. 

The ending was worth all the waiting. It was SO good. EEEE. I literally wanted to clap, but I finished the audiobook while I was driving so that is not advisable. But yes, you will cheer when they F.I.N.A.L.L.Y get on the same damn page. 

The narrators were good. I honestly thought they sounded alike so I barely noticed when it would jump to someone else. hahaha. That is probably a me thing. 

But yes, this was a fun and cute story. It does take a long time for them to finally get with each other. The ending was fantastic and totally worth it though. I'll give this 4 stars.
