What if the Lift driver who finds your cheating boyfriend's phone holds the directions to true love?

'Who are you and why do you have my boyfriend's phone?' 'He left it in my car. You must be the blonde in the red dress? I'm the Lift driver who dropped you two off earlier.'

And with these words, the life of the brunette and t-shirt wearing Maya Maas is turned upside down. Having planned to surprise her boyfriend, she finds herself single and stranded in an unknown city on her birthday.

So when the mystery driver rescues Maya with the suggestion that she cheers herself up at a nearby beach town, she jumps at the chance to get things back on track. She wasn't expecting a personalised itinerary or the easy companionship that comes from opening up to a stranger via text, let alone the possibility it might grow into something more...

Maya isn't having a good time. Her birthday was a disaster and her cheating boyfriend was exposed by his Lift driver. The positives? She finds a friend in the Lift driver through her ex-boyfriend's phone. 

An unexpected bond was formed between Maya and the driver  - I appreciated the uniqueness of their encounter and how we watched their chemistry grow and a relationship form via texting, however, I did find myself skimming these parts and I didn't really get into the plot until Maya made the big decision to find the mysterious Lift driver.

We all knew the driver's identity - Maya was the only one with her head buried in the sand, but I kind of liked the obvious mystery, but when the time came and his identity was revealed, I felt slightly robbed, you know? It ended so soon after the big reveal and I wanted more. I think this is a golden opportunity for some bonus content!

Overall, The Meeting Point was an easy read - a cute romance that is hard not to love. All of the characters were incredibly likeable and I thoroughly enjoyed this journey.
