Blurb :

Drama student Hannah Evans isn’t kissing any frogs on her path to find Prince Charming. She’s determined to share the perfect first kiss — with the perfect boy — in the perfect place — or she’s not kissing anyone at all.

When Hannah meets a cute ginger-haired boy in first class lounge in the London airport, she knows he’s ‘The One.’
Pop star Theo Callahan is on the road to get as far away as possible from his back-stabbing best friend, and his supermodel girlfriend who broke his heart. Until one shy smile from Hannah has him rethinking all of his travel plans.
Theo is smitten, but he’s worried she’s just a groupie in search of the ultimate selfie. Can Theo learn to trust Hannah in time to share one perfect first kiss, or will Hannah be forced to kiss a frog?
Review :

The Story of “Kisses on a Paper Airplane” by Sarah Vance-Tompkins is a sweet one. The romantic kind of story that every teenager … nope let’s be honest – that every girl AND woman dreams of.

We do not really get to know Theo that well even if the story is told from both sides the reader has to work with the public view of him that Hannah is conveying to the reader.
Hannah on the other hand is in her own mind a lot and thinking quite loud.
There are some interesting dialogues between them and having been a fan of a British actor for some years now I (and I guess many fans too) can totally relate to some stuff that is said and recited in the book.
Usually I would say the story unfortunately suffers from the short story-disease. Having trouble finding the right balance of background and depth. But something in the transient setting of the airports helps to fill that gap.
A reader will not expect anything permanent in a setting like an airport so even any conversation with depth will already exceed those expectations – great move actually to place it like this.
I would have introduced the story with a different Blurb, meaning from a different angle but that is my personal taste.
This story could be an easy earned 4 star read (again for the 5th star you need to trigger specific reactions from me that I did not have and cannot control – like crying or laughing fits)
But the writing style of the author is not a developed or not as fitting to the story as I would have liked as a reader so its more like a 3.5 stars – but as Goodreads and other rating systems will not allow that – I will leave it with the 4 stars.
Please enjoy this as a light summer read
