Can you fall for a man you’ve never met?
Head nurse Helen has a secret. Every day for the past six months, she’s been falling ever so slightly in love with a stranger. She knows that he catches the 7:02 train to London with her. She knows he has gorgeous green eyes. And she knows it’s not an accident that their eyes meet so often across the crowded train aisle. She just doesn’t know his name…
But one morning, Helen’s world collides with her perfect stranger and her life is turned upside-down. Aiden Danaher is even more irresistible once they start talking, and as for when they start kissing…Helen simply doesn’t want to stop! But surely you can’t fall in love with someone you’ve only just met?
200 Harley Street: Her Perfect Stranger by Carol Marinelli
This was a free read on Harlequin’s website.
It was a complete coincidence that I found this story the same night I downloaded a review copy of a book in the 200 Harley Street series. I figured I should read the freebie before the book.
I really like that Harlequin/Mills and Boon do these free reads on their sites. I haven’t read a bad one yet, and it gives you a chance to discover new authors.
Her Perfect Stranger is a quick story with a good premise. Two people see each other on a train every morning, not knowing that they’re connected to each other through work. But one day we have a woman who is in tears on her way to work – the same day she turns up wearing an engagement ring. Like I said, I thought it was a good premise!
I wasn’t so sure at first about having a heroine who worked in a cosmetic surgery clinic, but it turned out okay.
One thing I didn’t like was the way the story was presented on the site. The layout was terrible and there was no indication when we were in another character’s head. You’d be reading and then suddenly the point of view would change. I guess this is because of the way it was uploaded onto the site, but it was pretty frustrating!
