Meant to Be Mine by Hannah Orenstein | ARC Review

In a market that’s super saturated with romance novels, Meant to Be Mine had a premise that instantly caught my eye. How does one navigate life, dating, romance, and feelings when you know you won’t meet your predestined match until a certain date?

After a few years from their escape from Cuba to Florida, Isabel has been married off to […]
