Title: One Chance Night ( Make a Change #1)
Author: Eliza Boyd
Publisher: Patchwork Press
Publication Date: May 15h , 2015
Genre: Contemporary , New Adult
My Rating: 4/5 stars
On the surface, Chelsea Greer has it all:
A loving husband.
A nice house.
A good job.
In reality, she works hard to maintain the illusion that is her life. She's also missing the most important thing:
One night could change her life. One night could give her the strength to rediscover what's important. In one night, she could find love when she most needs it and least expects it.
All Chelsea has to do is follow her heart after One Chance Night.
My Review :
I received an eARC of One Chance night from Patchwork Press via NetGalley, in exchange with my honest review .
This is not just about romance; it is about getting a second chance and learning how to make the best out of it.
The character building was on point! I was able to feel Chelsea's distress, Brett's charming charisma, and Wesley's jerkiness . I can rant all day on why I love Brett, and hate Wesley.
Did I mention that is under 200 pages ?? Imagine how ( not so long )it took me to feel all of this ; well because Eliza is a brilliant writer.
The way story was told kind of reminded me of Poison Study by Maria.V. Snyder. Not because of the plot, but because of the storytelling . You have a lot things happening to the main character, but you have no idea why her marriage sucks. You get bits of information along the way, until Boom ! The dramatic reason finally is revealed. The revelation happens much earlier than in Poison Study, but you get what I mean.
The story was really interesting at the beginning, then it kind of dropped a bit , but then it returned to its "really interesting" level by the end .
I did not know that this was a part of a series until I finished the book. I know, it is written on the cover .:D But the ending is not a cliffhanger for Chelsea's story. However, it is an interesting cliffhanger for the series as a whole. I already want to read the second book : Two Pink Lines!
I give One Chance Night 4/5 stars.
Eliza's Pinterest is filled with quotes that are related to her book, country music lyrics that were mentioned in the novel, and Character casting suggestions !
