Two rambunctious, romantic flameouts. One boring wedding. One heated embrace in a quiet coatroom. This is not exactly the recipe for true love. John and Jane’s lusty encounter at a friend’s wedding isn’t really the beginning of anything with any weight to it; even they know that. When they manage to pull back, it occurs to them that they might start this whole thing over properly. They might try getting to know one another first, through letters. What follows is a series of traded confessions—of their messy histories, their past errors, their big loves, their flaws, and their passions. Each love affair, confessed as honestly as possible, reveals the ways in which Jane and John have grown and changed (or not changed) over the years—the people they’ve hurt, the ones still bruised, the ones who bruised them. Where all of this soul-baring will take them is the burning question behind every letter—a question that can only be answered when they meet again, finally, in the flesh.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The constant mix of sweet and sour, of heart-swelling romance and smart-ass banter is the official language of Modern Urban Singledom. The bestselling author duo make fine use of the epistolary form—with a few funny postal mishaps lending a hip meta-touch. Their couple’s distinct voices and push-pull dynamic are terrifically engaging.” Entertainment Weekly
“Sharp humor and insights into the modern psyche pervade the book.” Publishers Weekly
“The writing is piercing, funny, and emotional. Baggott and Almond’s collaboration makes for a delightful and robust work that readers will not be able to put down as they savor every messy confession. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“This is a surprisingly poignant and meaningful read.” Booklist
“All’s well that doesn’t end after all, and the contented reader anticipates (what both Jane and John would have wittily, mercilessly mocked) something very like a future for these two bright, screwed-up, engaging oddballs. Keen insights into sex, love, and coming to terms with one’s own unruly imperfections. A winner.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
