Publication Date: March 14, 2023
Genres: Adult, Romance, Contemporary
This was exactly what I hoped it would be. Airport rom-coms featuring very awkward encounters, plane related hijinks, and so. much. longing.
The Love Connection The first novel was my favorite of the three. It was soooo cute. Bennett’s rambling was adorable and the grand gesture and cute airport dates were swoony. 5/5 stars
The Missed Connection This second novella featured Bennett’s BFF, who we saw a little of in the first novella. I also really liked this one. There was a grumpy/sunshine trope happening, a one bed situation, and an academic/work rivalty. We love a STEM queen! I wanted a little bit more angst/slow burn, but I still really liked this one. 4.5/5 stars
The Sweetest Connection This one was my least favorite of the three, which is surprising since I love friends to lovers usually. The years of pining usually makes for the most amazing slow burn. Somehow, this one fell short though. When the culmination of events finally came through, it was not as swoony and angsty as I hoped it would be. Still a good novella, but not amazing. 3.5/5 stars
Overall, I loved this collection of novellas and would recommend them to everyone who loves contemporary romance. Or for those who like contemporary in small doses, this is a good option for you! You can pick one short novella and not have to commit to an entire book. Lots to love here.

Great reviews! I can’t believe I didn’t realise this was a collection of Williams’ novellas! 😂 I straight up assumed she just had a thing for writing romances set in airports (I’m such a numpty), haha! I’ve read Missed Connections and really enjoyed it but I’m keen to check out The Love Connection and already have it on my shelf!

HA! That’s so funny. I mean, I guess she kinda does have a thing for airport romances since she wrote a collection of novellas there. They’re all lovely reads! I hope you enjoy the others
