What would you do if your dream man turned out to be real?
When law student Cass Walker wakes up after surviving a car accident, she is flooded with memories of her boyfriend, Devin. The only problem? Devin doesn’t exist. But everything she remembers about him feels so real, like the precise shade of his coffee-brown eyes; the texture of his favorite hand-me-down scarf; even the slightly crooked angle of his pinkie, broken after falling off a trampoline in third grade. She knows he’s a figment of her imagination—friends, family, and doctors confirm it—but she still can’t seem to get him out of her head.
So when she runs into the real Devin a year later in a Cleveland flower shop, she’s completely shocked. Even more surprising is that Devin actually believes her story, and soon they embark on a real-life romance. With her dream man by her side and an upcoming summer job at a prestigious law firm, Cass’s future seems perfect. But fate might have other plans…

SHIPPED was one of my favorite books of 2021 so I knew I’d have to check out Hockman’s next book and it did not disappoint. This was a cuuuute read. I loved the characters, loved the unique story, and loved how everything came together so well.
I loved the premise of Cass meeting the man of her dreams – literally. It felt like a unique take on a story that felt familiar. Plus, and this was the best part, there ended up being a logical explanation for everything. I won’t say what that explanation was as not to spoil everything, but I’m just so happy everything made sense. There was quite a bit of foreshadowing leading up to it and it all came together so naturally. A slow clap for Hockman on this account alone.
Also, Cass and her love interest were just adorable. Every time they were in the same room or had scenes together I’d get a little giddy because they were just so good together. I won’t talk about this much as it’s a bit spoilery as well, but 10/10.
Overall, this was a great book! I’m officially sold on Hockman’s writing and can’t wait to see what she writes next.
