When We Met by Marni Mann is now live!

If you knew beyond all doubt that one chance encounter would change the course of your future, what would you choose?

There’s nothing like a spring day in Boston to make your heart sing. I’m out with my girls, having drinks in a bar, enjoying the bright pulse of our beautiful city, when I see Caleb. The second my eyes meet his, I know this is the moment when everything will change. All I have to do is choose him.

I meet Whitney on the worst day of my life. I’ve always been an adrenaline junkie, but I never knew how fast things could change. Her soft gaze melts my cynicism, makes me forget the bitter man I was becoming. She makes me want to be the version of myself that I see in her eyes. All she has to do is choose this life.

When We Met takes Whitney and Caleb on the ride of their lives, hitting every note on the scale of beauty and tragedy along the way. USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann will make you question everything you thought you knew about love and fate, and this unforgettable story will leave you certain that destiny always finds a way.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

This book. Holy crap. I read this instead of watching the Superbowl and I didn’t care. It was fantastic. When We Met is a fantastic exploration of how one moment, one choice, can change your life. If you knew that one encounter was going to change your life forever, for good or for bad, what would you opt to do?

This book is told in dual POVS — one part from Caleb’s POV and one part from Whitney’s — with Whitney’s best friend/roommate Emily bookending it with the prologue and epilogue from her POV. I wasn’t sure where the story was going to go when I read the prologue, but I was there for the ride. Both parts of this book are equally amazing, although they tell very different stories with Caleb and Whitney’s journey. And then I got to the end of Part 2, and gasped. Was that it? Impossible.

The epilogue tied it all back together, and it’s one of those chapters that leaves you really thinking over what you just read.

Whitney and Caleb are wonderful characters. There’s an immediate connection, they bring out the best in one another, and change each other for the better. He’s a workaholic before meeting her, a financial whiz and adrenaline junkie who only escapes the office when he goes off exploring the world. She’s a hospital nurse who works herself to the bone in memory of her brother, who she could not save. She’s miserable and feels like she’s lost herself in the hospital, but being with Caleb shows her that there is so much more she can do with her life.

Don’t read too many reviews about When We Met. Go into it blind, because it is phenomenal. It is set in April 2013 around the Boston Marathon bombing, so that could be a trigger for some readers. But Caleb and Whitney’s journey is a marvelous one that I won’t soon forget.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
