Plus, it was super fun to follow Zoe's story, as she was such a great character in One Night. Spock is basically awesome, end of story.
Finally, as a former resident of Chicago, I was so excited to see some old faves pop up in the book (Old Town School of Folk Music - SQUEE!!!)
Loved this latest book by Pine!
Zoe is full of hidden emotions and tradegy. She hides in herself and doesn't know how to deal with all the emotions and hurdles that have been thrown at her. Why does she change her hair color so often? How much of herself can she lose before she isn't recognizable even to herself? I found myself sobbing for her hopelessness several times.
Zack is a friend of Zoe's deceased brother who is at a crossroads in his life as well. Zack is a musician but is looking for something. When he and Zoe meet again after Wyatt dies. Can Zack get under Zoe's skin and help her deal with life instead of taking on everyone's problems but never dealing with her own?
Although, the book is a relatively short it is an emotional ride and I had to put it down several times. A. J. deals with the deep feelings of anxiety and loss beautifully and keeps the story moving forward. If you are looking for a well written character driven - New Adult Romance then this is more then worth it.
It took me a little while to write this review, since it is kind of hard to relay my thoughts on it. There was so much to this book and I experienced so many emotions while reading it. There were a couple of difficult topics within this book and I think Ms. Pine did a great job writing about them.
I did like how One Life approached addiction. It shows that there are all kinds of addictions, not only drugs and alcohol, but people can be addicted to adrenalin, to dying their hair, and to getting tattoos.
I also loved Zoe and Zach together. They were adorable and I was truly hoping their attraction was real and not one sided. In a way, I wish this book were written in duel POV. For a while I wanted to know what was going through Zack’s mind, but it didn’t make me like the book any less. I did adore him, he was such a sweet hero!
One Life is the second book in the Only You Series, but can be read as a stand-alone. I unfortunately did not read, One Night, but I was able to keep up since, One Life, is about two different characters.
I really enjoyed this book. There were a few tears, a few laughs, a good amount of steam, a little angst and a lot of friendship. At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about Zoe but as the book went on, I really felt she was a brilliant character. Everything from the issues she was dealing with, her guilt over her brothers death and the way she was hiding herself made her a really complex character. I felt like she was a really strong heroine, even if it didn't seem like it at times. Zach was amazing and he was the perfect match for Zoe. Maybe it's just my own personal preference but I really appreciated that the way this author handled the separation between these characters. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I hope maybe this series will continue - I'd love to read Delores's story!
