Review: That One Night by Josie Wright

All it takes is just one moment to change the course of your life. For me, it was one perfect night.
I have always had a thing for my brother’s best friend, Ben. When I found him on my parents’ couch, drowning his sorrows in a whiskey bottle, my attempts to comfort him quickly turned into a night of raw and intense passion.
My foolish heart hoped he might feel the same way I do.
But Ben wasn’t there to stay and I woke up the next morning alone with a broken heart.
I attempted to forget the guy with a smile to die for and a touch that sets me on fire.
I thought I was over him.
I thought he was gone forever.
Until, eighteen months later Ben returns and learns my secret. Now, he is hell-bent on winning me back.
He plays dirty.
And he won’t stop until he gets what he wants—me.

But he has secrets of his own.
Secrets that could destroy everything we might have and everything we are.

This is Josie Wright’s debut novel but after reading it you would never know that. She can definitely write and spin and beautiful love story that will keep you on your toes and wrapped up in it until the very end. I will be keeping an eye out for more books to come by her.

That One Night is about Frankie (Francine) & Ben. They have known one another most of their lives and during that time Frankie has always had a crush on Ben but Ben did not reciprocate those feelings UNTIL one night changes everything and life as they know it will cease to exist.

Eighteen months pass for Frankie with no word from Ben at all. No one knows what happened to him or where he is until one day he resurfaces.

This is a story about forgiveness. So many things happen in this story that just grab your heart, you can feel the hurt and confusion coming from the characters. This is also a story about finding your way in life and knowing who you are and where you came from which I think is important for all of us to know. And lastly but not least it’s about strength and making a life for yourself. The characters are feisty and not afraid to speak up to one another and at times it gets pretty funny. 

“It’s called karma, Ben. She is a vengeful little bitch”

That part had me cracking up along with so many others.

These characters had great chemistry, funny banter and worked really well with one another. Overall this was a great little read and I enjoyed it very much!

I absolutely loved this book!!! It was a breath of fresh air not the same old same old! . The storyline was different and had me hooked from the first chapter. I pretty much read it in one sitting!! I loved Frankie and how she grew as a woman and was so selfless even tho she was taking a lot of crap for it!!! I loved Ben and how he became a man and took responsibility no questions asked. I loved their little makeshift family! This book had just the right amount of funny, romance, angst and suspense!!! I loved every minute of it. Josie is now one of my go to authors that I will be reading everything she writes without even reading the synopsis! . Hands down one of the best books I've read in 2015!! And even more amazing is its her debut novel. Well done!! Xo
