Contemporary romance in a world of social media. One in a Million is a nice addition to a library, for those of you who enjoy this genre.
Annie is working hard to get her own marketing business moving. She doesn’t have time for anything else, especially love. And now that her ex-boyfriend has proposed to someone else after 6 months, she has to pretend that it doesn’t mean anything to her.
She makes a risky bet to turn a random person internet famous in a month. It seems like an easy thing to do, but when it turns out that this random person is one of those that want nothing to do with social media, this bet turns out to be mission impossible. Not to mention that this person is also brutally honest and savagely rude.
The plot was predictable and flat. I knew what was going to happen and the ending was too obvious and without any major twists.
Knowing the subject of this book, I was expecting at least some character development from both main characters:
- The man who never uses social media realizes that online presence is extremely important in today’s world, especially if you are trying to sell a book and promote what you are doing.
- The woman who is addicted to social media realizes that aside from the online world, she needs to focus on the real-life experiences and friendships.
The realizations from both sides never really happened. The characters mentioned and discussed this, but the never changed their actions or behavior, which I found very disappointing.
One in a Million is a wonderful chill book, one of those books you can read by the pool or on the beach. It is the perfect book to cheer you up, but it didn’t seem to have any real value to it, and for me it was a predictable and a boring experience.
If this genre is something that you usually read and enjoy – please pick it up, you are probably going to enjoy it! This book just wasn’t for me, that’s all.
