I have always enjoyed movies, tv shows and books set in space or somehow revolving around space as an idea. One of my current favorite tv shows is Apple TV’s For All Mankind. I highly recommend it! So when I saw this book by Samantha Young coming out, I really wanted to try it. I have enjoyed a few of her other books in the past so combine a theme I like with an author I like? Seems like a win!
Hallie is a successful event planner. She is working on an engagement party for Charlotte and her fiancé, Matthias, two people in love with very different tastes. Hallie isn’t worried. She asks the two to send her some ideas of their ideas for the party to see how she can combine them. In the process of looking through Charlotte’s files, Hallie discovers personal videos to Charlotte from a past boyfriend, Christopher Ortiz, a NASA astronaut. She ends up watching them all but feeling very guilty and knowing she invaded both Christopher and Charlotte’s personal life. So, Hallie starts sending videos of her own to Christopher, the first one apologizing.
Christopher isn’t pleased when the first video from Hallie shows up. But soon he is involved in watching the videos she sends to the NASA account. These two have not met yet but they are connecting on a deep level.
A Cosmic Kind of Love is a really sweet romance. It is slightly soured by the very heavy parental issues both Hallie and Chris are dealing with. It just got to be a lot that weighed them down and at times, the storyline also. That aside, I really enjoyed seeing these two fall in love in a modern epistolatory style. These are not letters obviously but I think it’s a fun twist on that idea. Samantha Young has a really likeable writing style that resonates with me. My time reading A Cosmic Kind of Love flew by and I can’t say that happens a lot when I read anymore sadly.
A Cosmic Kind of Love proved to be a fun love story with some heavy elements along the way. Mostly I kept reading for Hallie and Chris. I was rooting for these two to fall in love!
Thank you to Valentine PR and the publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book.
