Summary

What if you met The One on his wedding day?

Izzy doesn’t believe in love at first sight, but when Sam walks into the café where she works one winter’s morning, she knows without a doubt that he’s the one. Too bad Sam’s getting married. Today.

Nearly a year later, Izzy still can’t stop thinking about Sam, the one that got away, but she knows it’s time to move on: He’s a married man and probably wouldn’t recognize her if he passed her on the street.

But Sam has never forgotten Izzy, the funny, gorgeous woman who asked him out on his wedding day. If the timing had only been better, he knows they could have had something wonderful.

When Izzy and Sam’s paths finally cross again, everything has changed. But with the Atlantic Ocean and decades of baggage between them, they are about to find out whether some obstacles are too big for even true love to overcome.

An unforgettable love story about what happens when the stars finally align. Fans of One Day in December, The Day We Met, and Jojo Moyes will fall head over heels for The First Time We Met.

First Jo Lovett novel

Absolutely loved listening to this funny and heart warming love story by Jo Lovett. It was very easy to warm to the characters as the narrator really brought them to life. Light hearted and easy listening perfect during tough times.

One of the best!

This is one of the best audio books I've listened to since I started listening! New author and narrator for me but will definitely be looking out for more by them both! Can't recommend it enough.

Easy listening but terrible accents!

I didn’t get on with the narration, the accents are really bad - especially the American accent of Sam. Which makes it difficult to be invested in his story. Although, an overall easy listen (once you get used to the accents!).
