[Book Blitz Giveaway & Review] Face Time by S.J. Pajonas

Face Time (Love In The Digital Age, #1)
Face Time 

After the best first date ever, Lee thought Laura was funny, intelligent, and impulsive; a whirlwind of bright laughter and happiness. Laura loved Lee's sweet smile and the way he expertly filled in every awkward pause. He held her hand and then pulled her in for the most perfect kiss she’s had in years. What could possibly be wrong? Just the 7000 miles that separates them the next day.

Even though Lee has gone home to Seoul, Laura can't stop thinking about him. What starts as an innocent text thanking him for their dinner date becomes something much more: someone either of them can't live without. But Laura's got a live-in mother going through a midlife crisis, and Lee's stressful traveling schedule means they'll be apart for some time. Life, family, and a complicated past also get in the way, and they're both going to need actual face time to figure it out.

Told from both Lee and Laura’s point of view, FACE TIME is a funny, romantic, modern-day story about two people who connect across the world.

Face Time was a very fast and enjoyable read and it was really cute! It has pretty much everything - family, work stress, past relationships, and trying to learn to be in relationship with someone who's thousands of miles away. 

Story begins when Laura goes to her regular bar and gets stood up by her coworkers. Again. But her night brightens up when she meets Lee. He travels for work and not her type but she is very attracted to him and after one date, cannot stop thinking about him. Lee is also very interested in Laura and after his previous relationship, he wants to be with somebody that can make him happy and Laura is just the girl. The only problem is that she lives in New York and he's in Seoul and the only way to have some sort of relationship is text and FaceTime.

I loved the idea of reading about a digital relationship and how it would work. It was really cute and I could connect with all the characters. The only issue that I had was that the conversations weren't that significant and I would have rather read about some of the complications in the relationships then the every-day talk but it was still a cute read and I enjoyed it.
