|The Night We Met|
|July 18th 2019|
|I’ve always been three things: Loving daughter, devoted sister, and cynical romantic. Okay, maybe not always the last one, that didn’t happen until my ex-boyfriend cheated on me, and not with just anyone…my best friend.
One year later, and I’m over relationships, only interested in the occasional one-night stand. I don’t fall in love with them, and I don’t expect them to fall in love with me. I won’t be waiting around for their call or stalking their social media—until I discover that one of my little trysts indirectly holds my family’s fate in his hands. So, with a little convincing from my older and much wiser sister, I break my own rules for the sake of my family.He’s the exact opposite of me: Serious, detached and arrogant. Did I mention that he looks like he should be on a billboard for a cologne ad in the middle of Times Square, or the sexy way he botches up my name in his German accent? Well, he does…but I refuse to relent, remaining committed to my plan. Strictly business, no emotions involved, and nobody will get hurt…until nobody turns into somebody I find myself needing more than I ever thought possible.
What do you do when a one-night stand turns into so much more than you bargained for? And how do you stop one lie that’s getting bigger each time you’re with him from caving everything in around you? I know in the end someone is going to get hurt, but I’m powerless to stop it. And for him…I think I may be willing to have my heart broken all over again.
Since reading my first Beth Rinyu Book – which was “Easy Silence” this author has always been on my radar when releasing a new book and I already found several plots I read and liked since then like “Thursday Afternoon” or “When Autumn Ends” (which by the way is my fav. So far from all the books I read).
So when I noticed the plot of “The Night We Met” I knew I had to read that one too. And again the author delivered. The leading characters are so well developed that I could connect to them so easy even if Lukas was quite complicated. Actually the only person I disliked is the “sister” – I lost her the moment they came up with that stupid plan – #sigh and I never wanted her back actually. …
I know I know … to get the plot going you needed that stupid idea … yeah … but I do not have to like the sister – do I ? … So I guess well played dear author that character served its purpose…
I loved how the relationship between the leads developed. And as a reader you could feel the doom building up while you followed them through their journey. At some points I could not put the book down anymore and had to read through to the (bitter?!?) End …. Because what else should you expect when you start to expand a one – night stand … strictly business, no emotions ……..
Let’s face it … there is NO such thing unless you are not human … you simply cannot plan emotions
The question is … will they survive the blow up that we all know has to follow the lies.
Well I know the answer …. But you will have to read the book and suffer the hangover same as I did … (but trust me it will be worth it)
