The Minute I Saw You by Paige Toon

When Hannah meets Sonny, she's irresistibly drawn to him: he's sexy and confident, but only in town on holiday. That's fine with Hannah - she doesn't do long-term relationships. And luckily for her, neither does Sonny. But before they can even so much as kiss, Sonny receives some shocking news and commits to making serious life changes - ones that can't and won't include romance.

With even a short fling now off the cards, Hannah and Sonny settle for being friends. But as summer hots up and their chemistry shows no signs of cooling, they start to question their reasons for shutting each other out.

Are they both too broken to find love? And if they tear down the walls between them, will they still like what's on the other side?

The Minute I Saw you is the latest beauty by Paige Toon and wow this novel doesn’t disappoint. Sonny and Hannah’s lives weave together after Sonny visits the opticians where Hannah works and what could have easily passed as a brief meeting there was a sizzle of passion between them and the pair strike up a friendship when they both lay their cards on the table to declare that they both don’t do relationships.

Paige Toon has written such a passionate storyline with the chemistry fizzling between Hannah and Sonny but without it being seedy or explicit, the connection between the pair as they begin to let their barriers down at actually get to know each other was beautiful to read.

I have struggled to write this review because I am conscious of not giving away an unexpected revelation or two in this book, there are topics that are new to me in fiction and also devastating but written with such tender care which only impacted me more because I felt so invested in the characters and almost feel like they had built trust in the reader as Sonny as they reveal their secrets to us.

The friendships that are also built around Sunny and Hannah brought a comfort and support to them both. I also found it a slight learning curve too discovering how important eye tests are not just for your vision but the other illnesses that can be found through an eye examination.

For me Paige Toon hits the nail on the head in every book she delivers and this book is no exception, full of raw emotion, passion, devastation and romance this book is unforgettable and captivating.
