Maria La Serra
Publication date: June 27th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Dear girl with the red scarf,
Love was never meant to be conquered;
you have to surrender to it.
Trust me. After all, I am Mr. Universe.

When the universe conveys a message, you listen.
Olivia Montiano just caught her fiancĂ© cheating. Now she is forced to question what she wants out of life and love. Striving to live up to her father’s unrealistic standards for the past twenty-three years, every decision she has ever made was with her father’s wishes in mind—until she finds mysterious, handwritten letters tucked away in places only meant for her. That’s when she realizes she’s been on the wrong path all along and gives her heart to a guy her father thinks is entirely wrong.
Washed-up abstract artist Nick Montgomery has had quite a few setbacks in life. He’s become accustomed to never needing anyone, thinking he’s just fine—until he meets the girl with the red scarf. She’s not his type. But the universe has other ideas. Nick has a secret he’s keeping from her, afraid it will bring their new relationship to a sudden halt.
Will they figure out what the universe holds for them?

I loved this book! It was a good summer read with plenty of will they won't they thrown in.

The best part of it for me (without giving away too much) was the way the story moved from prose to illustration through notes; it helped to not only break up the tense moments but also provided context of where the story was going and neatly tied up the main points of the previous chapter.

It was a fun story with a serious undertone of how our family affects not only how we see ourselves but who we may end up with

A real Romeo and Juliet but with a less deadly ending!  Great writing, Great Story....I thoroughly recommend you add this to your summer reading list!!
