Dear girl with the red scarf,Love was never meant to be conquered, you have to surrender to it.Trust me. After all, I am Mr. Universe.
When the universe conveys a message, you listen.
Olivia Montiano just caught her fiancé cheating. Now she is forced to question what she wants out of life and love. Striving to live up to her father’s unrealistic standards for the past twenty-three years, every decision she has ever made was with her father’s wishes in mind—until she finds mysterious, handwritten letters tucked away in places only meant for her. That’s when she realizes she’s been on the wrong path all along and gives her heart to a guy her father thinks is entirely wrong.
Washed-up abstract artist Nick Montgomery has had quite a few setbacks in life. He’s accustomed to never needing anyone, thinking he’s just fine—until he meets the girl with the red scarf. She’s not his type. But the universe has other ideas. Nick has a secret he’s keeping from her, afraid it will bring their new relationship to a sudden halt.
Will they figure out what the universe holds for them?

Review
Olivia has finally gotten out of a relationship where she was mentally abused. Nick is so intrigued by her after their first meeting that he basically stalks her. The timing is completely wrong for them to have a relationship since they both are newly single. Olivia’s father also disapproves of them having a relationship. Then Olivia starts receiving anonymous notes from someone who calls themselves Mr. Universe.
I loved the premise of this book… a girl receiving anonymous notes to help her find out who she really is and what is important in life. The notes were probably the best part of the story. The characters felt lacking at times. Overall, I enjoyed this book.
