In Five Years

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Where do you see yourself in five years?

Dannie Kohan lives her life by the numbers.

She is nothing like her lifelong best friend—the wild, whimsical, believes-in-fate Bella. Her meticulous planning seems to have paid off after she nails the most important job interview of her career and accepts her boyfriend’s marriage proposal in one fell swoop, falling asleep completely content.

But when she awakens, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. Dannie spends one hour exactly five years in the future before she wakes again in her own home on the brink of midnight—but it is one hour she cannot shake. In Five Years is an unforgettable love story, but it is not the one you’re expecting.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  A great story about friendship and love.  Two friends since they were little and close as can be.  One is very driven and has her whole life planned out (Dannie).  One believes living life to its fullest and more on a whim (Bella).  When Dannie awakes from a dream in a different apartment with a different guy she isn't sure what is going on.  When she really wakes up she questions a lot of things about her life.  When Bella brings her new boyfriend and it turns out to be the guy in her deam, the story really takes off.  Super quick and good read.
