I don’t believe in destiny.

In fate.

Or in soul mates.

But I believe in Hawke.

My life has never been whole since my parents left forever. I have my brother, someone I can barely tolerate most of the time, and I have my best friend, Marie.

And I have myself.

But when Hawke walks into my life, there’s an immediate connection. Our eyes lock and an unspoken conversation is exchanged. For the first time in my life, I actually feel something.

But he doesn’t.

He keeps me at arm’s length and pretends there’s nothing between us when there clearly is. I’m not the kind of girl to wait around for any guy, so I don’t.

But that doesn’t mean he isn’t in the back of my mind.

Our paths cross again in a way neither one of us expect and it changes everything. Was it destiny that made it happen? Was it fate?

Or was it something else?


Bestselling author, E. L. Todd, was raised in sunny California where she still lives today, claiming it’s the best place in the country. Easily hypothermic and hateful of the cold, she prefers to be warm all year round. She attended California State University, Stanislaus and received her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences, but still pursued her dream to be a writer. She’s written several novels and many series’, and her imagination can’t seem to stop. She tries to find the good in people and she exploits that in her writing, proving that people can make mistakes and rise above their past. Her hobbies include sunbathing, swimming, eating at Surf Taco in San Diego, reading, and learning everything she can about hippopotamuses’, her favorite creature. Her greatest dream is to make people forget about the harshness of reality and dive into a good story with lovable people. When fans tell her they love her work, it gives her the greatest sense of accomplishment.

Title: Monday
Author:  E.L. Todd

 I know you probably are familiar with E.L. Todd’s teaser for Monday. Yes, I was one of the people who one clicked the teaser she had free.  It gave you a snippet of Francesca and Hawke. It had me wanting more. Furthermore, when I got the whole Monday, I was not disappointed.  Hawke and Francesca’s story had me captivated from the first time she saw his blue eyes, to him wanting her muffins.  

 Hawke and Francesca are like any two people who find each other in this world. Ones you would never think about, or think you have a chance with. Francesca works at a coffee shop, one that Hawke comes to every week. A simple black coffee for a not so simple man. It takes Francesca some time to get the courage to ask him on a date.  However, when he accepts, they realize they have a connection not mainly have in this lifetime. Nevertheless, for Hawke, having something in his life isn’t always the best for him. 

Through his lifetime, Hawke has had one simple rule, no relationships. Not getting attached to anyone, getting out before it gets serious. Besides, for him, a relationship with Francesca would not work. But for Francesca she was never the one growing up having someone to tell her what she can and can’t do.  If that means a friendship is all she can have from Hawke then she will take it. She rather have him in one way then never to have him in her life. 

Hawke and Francesca’s will have you living vicariously through their emotional scars they had to face in their childhood, to the ones they have to deal with in their grown up lives. Francesca and Hawke have many challenges they overcome, and you will not want to put this book down. Because where Monday ends, Tuesday begins. Tuesday by E. L. Todd continues the story of Francesca and Hawke. 

 I hope you will enjoy Monday, as I have. I give it 4.5 stars. You will not be disappointed, please check out Monday by E.L Todd, for I thoroughly enjoyed Francesca and Hawke’s love story.
