One Shot

Book Review - ONE SHOT by BJ HARVEY

Thump... thump... thump.... One Shot is full of torturous angst that will have your heart beating a mile a minute. From the first few pages you are aware that something has gone wrong for the two main characters. But how exactly you're not sure. The book then takes you back to the beginning of a whirlwind romance that has you smiling from ear to ear. You're swooning and giddy and blissfully ignorant for awhile because the story had you so in the moment. But then you are brought back to the present and blasted with a hurricane force wind that knocks you over and makes your stomach turn. I definitely found myself at times full of emotion during this book and a lot of it was anger at the circumstances. Ready and willing to hand out a beat down to some of the characters in this book on multiple occasions. But those are some of the moments I live for when I read. The wtf and omfg moments are the best and this book has them in spades. Millen I loved him at first, then hated him then loved him and hated him again only to love him at the end. Yes I flip flopped constantly with this read. These two definitely start out with fireworks and then end up going through hell and I wasn't sure they would make it out. If your a fan of angst and having those moments where your heart is in knots then I definitely recommend this read. It's gritty, and will give you a bit of whiplash as your feelings will be all of the place. It will torment you in the best way possible.


Boy meets girl, boy wins girl, boy nails girl -- boy’s gone by morning. I think for sure it must've been a dream because there’s no way a guy could look like that, touch me like that and be so in tune with me on every known level, and disappear, leaving me with nothing but a good story to tell my friends. When he walks into my bar three months later, everything I thought I knew and what we’d had disappears in the blink of an eye and the blinding light of the three-carat diamond on his fiancée's hand. It seems what I thought was a dream is now my most complicated reality, and I've got absolutely no idea how to fix it - or if I even want to.
