Editorial Reviews

Review

‘An addictive page turner of a story, with laugh out moments and genuine heart-warming characters.’ —Handwrittengirl

‘Matt Dunn makes the characters and their stories something you want to follow, and throws enough curveballs in there to make you doubt how it's all going to end up.’ —Chloe's Chick Lit Reviews

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!! :)

If you enjoyed this book or even kind of liked it I highly recommend Dan Taylor is Giving Up on Women

It took me a while to read this book because i had completely stopped reading it. It was interesting concept and it was a good book. Because the author is British, i kinda didnt understand his writing, but once i sat down and really read this book, it was actually good. The story sorta jumped a year but this gap was filled with amazing details.

This unique story about a one-night stand is an easy read, but one you won't want to put down. Encompassing an unknown jazz musician, the streets and pubs of London and the high life of the wealthy, it is both enchanting and mysterious. Not the usual genre picked by me to read, I was very surprised to find out how much this little novel held my attention. Reading more of this author is a must. Enjoy!

It's well after 3 a.m. And here I am. Just finished reading "What Might Have Been". I'm sure tomorrow morning I'll wish I could have put it aside and gone to bed, but that didn't happen. So, beware! Once you get into this story you're doomed to want to read it to the end. What a pleasure to "see" London and get to know all of the interesting characters you wouldn't get to meet while sitting in your most comfortable chair reading a fine love story.

This story is a rollercoaster ride of emotional turmoil. It is an interesting mix of colorful characters and office politics and romance as well as a look at jazz musician jobs. Sometimes the emotional monologue is redundant and repetitious , but the players are interesting and the story is real. It is a good read.

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!

I have liked some of Matt Dunn’s previous books but for some reason this book just left me feeling really impartial (I HATE that!). Evan and Sarah are the lead characters in this book and Evan is a pretty decent guy. He’s a musician who plays the saxophone and had his 10 minutes of fame back in the day. Sarah is an American who happens to stop by a jazz club and sees Evan play. It takes her back to her childhood when her father used to play the sax in clubs. What results is a reckless night together. However events after that one night mean they go their separate ways for a year.

Sarah in the beginning was a reasonably likeable character, however as the book progressed she just irritated me. Whilst Evan goes off to another country Sarah is left behind and her life inevitably changes. When Evan returns he just can’t stop thinking about Sarah and is determined to make Sarah see they are meant to be together. The writing was good as usual, and there is certainly nothing lacking in Matt Dunns ability to write a cracking story. For me though, the character Sarah got worse as the book progressed to the point where I couldn’t have cared less about her.

There are additional characters that make appearances such as Mel (didn’t get enough time in the book in my opinion) and David (who I also couldn’t stand). I read this to the end and it was certainly an easy read. But sadly, it just wasn’t as good as other books he has written. Maybe the character thing was just my issue, because normally I can really take to characters. However, this being one of the major factors for me made me mark it down. Sarah’s incessant whining and to-ing and fro-ing quite frankly gave me a headache. I will still look forward to Matt’s future work in the hope I will love the next set of characters he creates.

I enjoyed this book! The author didn't go overly into detail on mundane points and, I was able to stay hooked from beginning to end. I would love another book to see where the story goes. I really liked the characters!
