**STANDALONE BOOK with no cliffhanger**
New Sexy Standalone from New York Times Bestselling Authors Helen Cooper and JS Cooper
It was only supposed to be one night!
We met at a wedding. He was hot. And I’d been in a year’s drought.
He smiled. We got drunk.We flirted. We hooked up. I left early the next morning without saying goodbye. It was only meant to be a one night stand. I didn’t want the awkward morning after moment. Not at all.
Then I went home for the weekend. And he was there. Sitting on the couch chatting to my dad. Turns out he was more than just a stranger. Turns out that my one night stand was about to cause a whole heap of trouble. Turns out that it never just stops with one night.
Readers should be 18 and over due to mature situations and language.
Ok, I am a bit torn with this story, it could have been really great but was just a quick enjoyable read for me.
What I liked, the quirky friendship of these two girls, they had each other’s backs all the way through, did not overly judge their mistakes and for that I loved their friendship, they just did their own thing and supported each other.
This was too quick in the end for me, I felt the first half we went around in circles with the sneaking around with each other and then all of a sudden we are rushing towards the finish with everything being tied up and big chunks of story being left out that I really wanted to know about. We miss a major component of the relationship that is Gabby and Xander and how it in the end affects Liv, especially a significant 2 week period that perhaps if included would have given more depth to the storyline and perhaps made it a bit more believable.
This would have been great if we had chapters from both POV I think as I would have liked to have understood Xander more and his relationship with his brother Henry, especially considering Henry’s involvement.
I did think the last chapter “3 months on” was probably one of my favourite parts of the book, it gave me hope for all these characters particularly that of her friend and brother and their possible future. Look whilst there is cheating in this book, I use that term loosely as Xander and Liv – I was with them the whole way through as deserving to be together, it was just timing and circumstances were not on their side.
Lastly Gabby is a total bitch, what an awful person to have as a sister and I could not understand why her mum and dad were so hard on Liv and not her considering the position Gabby got herself in – just strange the whole family situation but saying that Liv’s brothers were great characters who I enjoyed reading about.
