New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
Numbers are everywhere—they play such a vital role in our everyday lives. But what would happen if we measured love with equations just as we do our morning cup of coffee? My nana had many recipes in her cupboards, but it was her calculations for love that she insisted I live my life by; and I’ve followed her rules all these years.
One Critical Impact
That’s all it took for the numbers to start flying in a jumbled mess through my brain as I stared into the violet eyes that would forever make me question my choices. In a split second, the possibilities and reality of true love are revealed and I’m questioning all I’ve ever known.
I can’t ignore the storm brewing around—and within—me. Everything I am is confronted by these new numbers, and all they represent. My past, present and future will all be determined by the gambles I make right here, right now. Again, it’s all about the numbers.
And what I’m learning is, one plus one doesn’t always equal two and sometimes three times isn’t always the charm.

I know that stepping outside the box only gets you hurt, that taking chances is what brings ruin and pain into your life. I know this . . . . yet with one encounter my whole world turned inside out. -- Brielle
I was waiting for the time to post this review. Something close to this upcoming Christmas season. Why? Well, because if there are girls reading this will give me the reason that Christmas is a time also romance.
** I received an ARC, in exchange for an honest review.**
Well, personally is the first time I read a book by Shannon Meyer, did not know what to expect from this book, the synopsis was only hhabia read in one of the events I had and a cover page with a title peculiar Ninety-eight .
The synopsis speak of numbers, but what he meant to them, Well one afternoon I grabbed my lap and started reading this book, in the known history of Brielle, a girl who has a job as a vet assistant and a boyfriend which she considers a man who enters the higher percentage standard with which his life may not be 100% happy but you will have peace and security. And love?
Brielle has a history of looking for that kind of happiness, and family environment does not help much for her to find someone to fill it with happiness and love. But ... that education, instilled thoughts and ideas about life will see truncated and broken thanks to Darwin.
Ninety-eight, I think is a good percentage to look Brielle and in your equation includes love. Your starting life that meets Darwin change and this is where it starts growing as a character, perhaps in some places not connected with her, but comprehended their situation. Including the other characters. Also this is where your feelings could be a swirl.And that swirl bring more surprises on the way to our protagonist and for us readers moments and unexpected situations.
It is easy to read, very cool and has a very clear idea about what it means contemporary romance. We are flooded with many feelings, many doubts, many moments that make this book highly recommended for something girl looking for love, you already have or are in love with him.
Look for it, enjoy it and now that Christmas is approaching, what better than an afternoon with a reading romance, a delicious coffee and a box of tissues.
PD: My stars for this book is 4.
