The Minute I Saw You

WITH BONUS SHORT STORY AND NEW AUTHOR Q&A EXCLUSIVE TO THE PAPERBACK EDITION
The brand new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author Paige Toon. The perfect summer read for 2020!


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?
