Goodreads: I want to rewind the clock, take back the night when the world shattered. I want to erase everything that went wrong.
Amber Bryant and Tyler Hicks have been best friends since they were teenagers—trusting and depending on each other through some of the darkest periods of their young lives. And while Amber has always felt that their relationship is strictly platonic, Tyler has long harbored the secret desire that they might one day become more than friends.
Returning home for the summer after her college graduation, Amber begins spending more time with Tyler than she has in years. Despite the fact that Amber is engaged to her college sweetheart, a flirtation begins to grow between them. One night, fueled by alcohol and concerns about whether she’s getting married too young, Amber kisses Tyler.
What happens next will change them forever.
Kritters Thoughts: Unfortunately for me, the big thing in this book was spoiled for me, but even with the spoiler, I can say that I absolutely adored this book.
Amber and Tyler are childhood friends and they have been each other's person through the ups and downs through middle school and high school, but when Amber comes home with a significant other, Tyler's world is shaken to its core and he doesn't know what to do without his best friend being just his.
Before reading this book, I was already a HUGE Amy Hatvany fan and have read most of her backlist. The way she writes is indescribable, but just makes the reader want to dive in and not give up on these characters.
Without giving away the big thing, I will say that this book hit close to home and I may have avoided books that had this topic in it because I am not sure I was ready to read it, but the way Amy Hatvany did it was spot on. I loved that there were chapters told from each Amber and Tylers points of views so the reader gets the fullest picture of their story.
If you are already an Amy Hatvany fan you won't be disappointed. If this is your first of hers, start getting her backlist, you will have quite a collection to your TBR pile!
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
