You're the One that I don't Want - Alexandra Potter

What if you found your soulmate...

and then discovered you couldn’t lose him?

When Lucy meets Nate aged 18, it is love at first sight. As far as she’s concerned, he’s The One. Caught up in the whirlwind of first love, they kiss under the Bridge of Sighs in Venice at sunset and – according to the legend – are tied together indefinitely.

But ten years later, they’ve almost forgotten about each other. That is, until fate starts to bring them together. Again. And again. And again. It doesn’t seem as wonderful as it had before, but if Nate’s not The One – then why on earth is it proving so hard to break up with him?

A funny and magical romantic comedy about what happens when every girl’s dream of finding her dream man comes very true indeed.

Bridge of Sighs (the limestone-enclosed bridge in the background)
connects the Doge's Palace to the prison.
A local legend says that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss if
they kiss on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge Of Sighs.

Lucy jatuh cinta pada Nate ketika mereka bertemu di Venice kemudian mereka berpisah lalu sepuluh tahun kemudian mereka bertemu kembali.

Bukan hanya dalam satu kali pertemuan, tapi berkali-kali. Rasanya seperti ada sesuatu di luar sana yang mengatur pertemuan mereka. Mereka bertemu di rumah makan Jepang, bertemu di gym, dan di setiap kesempatan mereka seakan tidak terpisahkan. Bila itu terjadi pada pasangan yang sedang dimabuk cinta, tentunya hal itu adalah berkat untuk mereka. Tapi bagaimana bila mereka justru saling membenci?

Sepuluh tahun tentu bisa merubah seseorang menjadi sosok yang jauh berbeda. Itulah yang terjadi antara Lucy dan Nate. Mereka berubah dan mulai saling membenci, tapi magic Bridge of Sighs itu terjadi pada mereka berdua. :)
“Too many people miss out on real love because they're too busy waiting for the ONE to show up” 
"If, by some miracle, you're lucky enough to meet the ONE, whatever you do, don't let them go. Because you don't get another shot at it. Soulmates aren't like buses there's not going to be another one along in a minute. That's why they're called, "THE ONE".” 
“If only men were like New York taxi-cabs and had a light that they can switch on when they're interested and off when they're not available. Then you'd know exactly where you were and you wouldn't have to worry about getting it wrong and being horribly embarrassed. "
Tiga bintang untuk novel ini, saya memang tidak terlalu menikmatinya tapi ada beberapa bagian yang rasanya sangat menarik di novel ini.. :)
