Book Details

Who’s on top?

Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams—whether it’s for an hour or a lifetime. But due to a painful past, the British expat has never put her own name on the list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless and commitment-free hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart…

Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI agent. Specializing in financial crimes, he pieces together stories of greed and ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules—until he meets Tilda. He’s drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he’s the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesn’t come with a guarantee…

I’m finding it difficult to form words meaningful, and powerful enough to paint a worthy picture of how Anne’s words have moved me. With The List we’re catapulted into Tilda and Daniel’s love affair. Tilda is mysterious yet thorough with her word choice. Words on paper tell a story: your past and your present, dreams for your future. I have a tattoo that stats: “Once it’s written, it is done”. I feel a bond with Tilda because of our mutual love and meaning held to the written word that I haven’t felt with a heroine in a long time. Her choices threw me and that drew me in further to the story. Once were given the reason to why, her choices (past and present) make absolute sense. Daniel is a puzzle solver and does not give up. His presence and dedication is his showing of love to those he cherishes. Tilda does not know love, that’s an unreliable thing. Whereas words are reliable, thorough and can not just be thrown to the side…because they stay forever, never fading. Daniel is knowledgeable with love: how to give and receive this binding emotion. He’s confident in what his instincts tell him and he follows through. Both Daniel and Tilda rely on words, whether it be a list or a letter: these words are their balance, their center. If you find power in the meaning of words and the follow through with actions, you will find a great pleasure in this novel. Give Tilda and Daniel your time, and find your next book crush!! Rating: 5 word-filled stars
