Three-forty-five in the morning: unknown number calling.
Send the stranger on their way and go back to sleep, right? Except – his gruff voice made me think twice.
I was a small girl with big dreams. I juggled college, charity, and a job while dodging an annoying ex. Getting to know a guy? That was way down on my list. So I had every intention of ignoring sexy Joel Thomas when he woke me up.
But he wouldn’t let me. When did texting and calling turn into feelings? We kept our identities a secret and didn’t see each other. Yet, we fell in love.
Will our chemistry stand the test of reality?

What a sweet, smart, and witty New Adult Romance that Mia Miller has written. So many New Adult romances have so much angst and drama that sometimes overshadow the rest of the book…not so with Love, On Hold.
I was intrigued from the very beginning. Joel thinks himself very lucky when he scored a hot chick’s number earlier in a bar. The joke is on him when he realizes she has given him the wrong number, but the female voice on the other end grabs his attention and gives him some sort of calmness. Instead of hanging up, he keeps talking to her.
Leonie is awakened at 3:45 AM by a wrong number. However, the guy’s voice intrigues her and gives her butterflies. This surprises her as she has had no time to even think about romance lately. So, the two continue talking, and before long, a pattern emerges in which they are talking and texting every day, getting to know one another. Keeping their identities secret is working for both of them NOW. What develops is a sweet, slow-burning love story.
Both characters are extremely intelligent and mature for being in their very early 20’s. Each of them have their own goals, and they are very motivated in reaching them. He wants to be an investigative reporter, working for a news agency that deals with facts and not opinions. She has a dream to be on the UN Council for Human Rights. This girl knows five foreign languages!!!! As smart as they are, each have suffered when it comes to their families but for very DIFFERENT reasons. It does play into the book and their romance.
The two draw out meeting each other, but Joel keeps pushing to meet Leonie. You may think this would slow the plot down, but the anticipation only makes it better. When they do finally meet face-to-face, it’s absolute SWEETNESS, which happens to be one of his nicknames for her.
The synopsis caught my attention, but Miller kept it throughout the book. It’s difficult for me to believe this is her debut novel. I would have thought it was written by a seasoned writer. I’m looking forward to reading her next book, Truly Yours.
