|The Night That Changed Everything : Laura Tait & Jimmy Rice|
Welcome aboard! I'm super excited to be today's stop on the blog tour for The Night That Everything Changed. I'm in such good company as well, taking over the baton from Miss Bookworm.
Onto the book:
Rebecca is the only girl she knows who didn't cry at the end of Titanic.
Ben is the only man he knows who did.
Rebecca’s untidy but Ben doesn’t mind picking up her pieces.
Ben is laid back but Rebecca keeps him on his toes.
They're a perfect match. Nothing can come between them. Or so they think.
When a throwaway comment reveals a secret from the past, their love story is rewritten.
Can they recover from the night that changed everything? And how do you forgive when you can’t forget?
From the off, I decided I liked the sound of this book. I loved the way the chapters were written, alternating between Ben and Rebecca, written alternately by authors Jimmy and Laura. Immediately I was drawn into their lives and what I think sets this book aside from those of a similar genre, was that I felt as though I could relate to the characters. I guess they're the right age group for me, and remind me of friends who are in similar situations.
So far, so standard, you might think. Well, you'd be wrong. It's a new twist on your traditional boy meets girl tome with it's happily ever after ending, but that for me made things more enjoyable. I hate predictable and The Night That Changed Everything is frankly anything but predictable. I was shocked by a couple of the plot twists, but they just worked to make the story more compelling. I read this in an afternoon as I was so immersed, I couldn't leave it alone.
You'd be crazy not to add this one to your reading list. But, if you need more convincing, be sure to stop by GeorgeLesterWrites tomorrow.
