The Impossible Us

This is a love story like no other. Nick, a struggling writer whose wife just left him for his best friend - sends off a scathing email to a client who owes him money. Bee receives said email and although completely out of character, she responds to this stranger to let Nick know he’s got the wrong email. What ensues is a back and forth (You’ve Got Mail) flirtation that leads to a truly meaningful friendship. Finally, finally the two decide to meet in person. But Nick never shows, Bee never appears. Angry and hurt at first, the two later begin to dive back into the hundreds of messages sent between them and red flags are everywhere. They are somehow not in the same time/universe. Desperately wanting to meet but also filled with a strong desire to somehow make everything right they go out on a limb and commit to things that seem utterly impossible. I absolutely loved this alternative world (almost time travel -ish) premise. You have to roll with it because it can be confusing but it is superbly original and filled with wonderful quirky, witty characters. Beautifully written, this romance is a lot of fun and will fill you with wonder.  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
