Book Description

A year ago, Evan and Sarah shared one incredible night. Then Evan’s music—the thing that brought them together—suddenly tore them apart.

Since then, Evan’s not been able to forget about her. And try as she might, Sarah can’t seem to get over him either.

With time running out, Evan’s got one last chance to convince her that the two of them were meant to be. But is one night enough for Sarah to make a decision about the rest of her life—even if it was the best night of her life? And if she doesn’t believe in love at first sight, how can Evan persuade her that what they had will last?

From the bestselling author of A Day at the Office, What Might Have Been is Matt Dunn’s new romantic comedy about two people in love. Though one of them needs a little convincing…

4.0 out of 5 stars A Story with a lot of Feeling! August 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a story that grabs you from the beginning. Even though it's a long novel it goes by so fast it still seems too short. It kind of reminded me of the movie The Wedding Singer a bit and I like that movie so that's a good thing. The writing is very good and the story easily kept my attention.

There are so many different feelings experienced in this novel. I liked going on the journey with Evan and Sarah as they decide what love really is and if it's worth taking a risk for.

Rating: PG-13 to R There is a lot of talk of sex and profanity. As far as the graphic-ness there is like one or two paragraphs with descriptions so if you don't like that kind of info give this novel a pass. I don't so I'm not sure if I will read more by this author in the future. It's also the reason I gave this novel 4 instead of 5 stars.

Low Re-Readability (For me because of the graphic nature of some of it. If that had been left out I probably would rate it high.)

P.S. - If anyone has read any of the authors other novels could you please comment and let me know if they are graphic as well? Thanks!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and readable. DO get this book! August 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I started reading this on the plane, and then my ipad ran out of battery. As soon as it was charged up, the first thing I wanted to do was get back into the book! It's a good story, and an easy read. Like other books I've read by the same author (and would also recommend!), the writing is funny without being 'try-hard', and the storyline moves fast, which kept me turning the pages- finished the whole thing in a couple of days!
Enjoyable, and something you'll want to pass on to a friend.

I've read several books by Matt Dunn and really enjoyed this one the most! The general plot, but with a lot of fun twists and turns along the way: British musician Evan and American banker Sarah meet in London on one unforgettable night - but can he convince her love at first sight can last? It's an entertaining, fast-paced story, told from both sides. I loved it!

Another funny and highly enjoyable book by Matt Dunn - having read most of his other books I was happy to read another and find it as good as the others. Loved the Brit-American storyline. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good read with a lot of laugh out loud moments.

3.0 out of 5 stars A case of unfulfilled promise August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book frustrated me.

On the one hand, Matt Dunn has as solid a premise for a romance as you'll find in women's fiction. Sarah and Evan had one night - just one - but it was so perfect that neither has forgotten it.

Sarah tried - she even got engaged - but those memories are still right there. Evan got her in a way that her fiancé does not, or cannot. But Evan left, and even though Sarah understands why - even though she fully supported his decision - she feels as if he abandoned her. It isn't a rational thought, and Sarah knows that.

When Evan returns, Sarah is one week away from her wedding, which means Evan has a limited amount of time to get her back.

And here's where it gets frustrating.

It feels like Matt Dunn repeats the same scenes over and over AND OVER again. The same conversations, the same navel gazing, the same tears, the same arguments. It feels so repetitive that I found myself skipping pages, knowing I wasn't missing anything.

I don't know if Dunn didn't realize what he was doing, but his editor sure should have.

Pages upon pages of the same thing.

This is not a short book, and it feels even longer. The ending should have come at least 100 pages before it does. In fact, it you could cut out those repetitive scenes, this would be a much better read. Much, much better.

As it is, it's difficult to root for Sarah, because every drawback to her personality is brought into sharp relief in those copycat conversations, so reading them repeatedly makes her seem far more annoying than she truly is. I started to wish I could tell Evan to just let her go and move on.

There are good qualities to this book, enough to make me recommend it. But have your thumb ready, because you will want to get through some of the pages with only the briefest scans.
