I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Twenty years werenÔÇÖt enough for either of them to forget.
A chance encounter, a missed connection.
Two wayward stars that collided in a turbulent sky, at the right place, but at the wrong time in both of their lives.
What happens when they meet again? Do the same unforgettable sparks still fly?
Titan Jennings and Jesenia Van Buren may come from two different worlds but their hearts are open to second chances. No matter who or what may stand against them, love is what anchors their lives together.
Love may be infinite but time is not, Missed Connection is a novel about making the very best you can with what little youÔÇÖve got.

From the highest of highs, to the lowest of lows – Missed Connection called to me. As a romantic, I love the concept of people reconnecting and getting a do over, getting a second chance. Add that to the idea that it started with a chance encounter and IÔÇÖm in. So when Titan Jennings places an ad looking for the girl in a green dress, I felt the hope that he and Jesenia Van Buren, our heroine, would be able to bridge the gap of twenty years and get the chance to know each other. I suppose his perseverance hooked me and I fell quite in love with this charming man.
When Ty takes the risk of posting his Missed Connection plea, it was simply a matter of time before the two would connect. There are obstacles but this time neither one are letting go. Missed Connection is a smart and incredibly well plotted story, with just the right amount of angst and some very intense heartbreak. Before anything can start between them Jess must reconcile and recognize just how much she deserves a kind and loving man in her life. Both are smart and accomplished and have lived very full lives while apart. Separate they are loveable, but together they are simply mesmerizing and remind me how very exciting it is to witness the bloom of new romance and soul mate love.
The theme made the story enticing but there is so much more going on to keep the reader interested. The authors tackle subjects that speak to the physical well-being of both Ty and Jess. The story is profoundly moving as their happiness is tempered by JessÔÇÖ mental health and a husband (in name only) who is so manipulative and self absorbed. While Ty has his own secrets, heÔÇÖs incredibly loyal , respectable and honorable. His adoration and devotion to Jess is totally swoon worthy. Fighting for and plotting in support of Ty and Jess are Jess’ daughter Angelina and Titans’ son Luke. They are such bright spots and end up being characters that drive a lot of the plot. They become fast friends and often remind Ty and Jess how great they are together,
There are so many layers to their story making Missed Connection an entirely engrossing read. The authors use flashbacks, email and text exchanges to tell part of the story. But what really helps us to understand our characters so fully is that we get it from both of their perspectives, including a lot of inner dialogue. I hadnÔÇÖt intended to spend the entire day lost in this book but once I started I couldnÔÇÖt stop. I was experiencing such a range of emotions, I went from giddy happiness to devastating sadness ~ the kind thatÔÇÖs expressed through tears that just pour down the face.
Missed Connection is #MustRead and rightly deserves 5 stars and my recommendation.
