Release Day Review ~ One Shot by BJ Harvey


Book Description:

Boy meets girl, boy wins girl, boy nails girl - boy’s gone by morning.

I think for sure it must've been a dream because there’s no way a guy could look like that, touch me like that and be so in tune with me on every known level, and disappear, leaving me with nothing but a good story to tell my friends.

When he walks into my bar three months later, everything I thought I knew and what we’d had disappears in the blink of an eye and the blinding light of the three-carat diamond on his fiancee's hand.

It seems what I thought was a dream is now my most complicated reality, and I've got absolutely no idea how to fix it - or if I even want to.

“Awkward, meet Mortifying. Also, here are Shame, Embarrassment, Anger, Disgust, and over in the corner there is Complete and Utter Confusion and her friend I’m Going to Have to Move States and Join a Women-Only Commune with Cats and Unlimited Batteries.”


BJ Harvey is one of those authors that never fails to deliver for me. No matter what she decides to write I end up devouring it, normally in hysterical laughter, normally with a few tears, but more importantly with what I crave, emotion and character connection and One Shot was no different. With One Shot, BJ Harvey does angst, and she does it amazingly well. Damn, this book had me swearing, had me wanting to kill someone, all the while enveloping me with a huge amount of hope. Hope that love conquers all and bitches get their just desserts.


“Guys like that are assholes. They bump and grind, then leave behind.”


Kenzie Sharp threw all her rules out the window when she met Millen Ross. The chemistry was palpable, their connection one that you find only once in a life time and yet it seems that still wasn’t enough. These two just clicked, like peanut butter and jello, like a sad movie and a tub of Ben & Jerry’s, it just has to be done. But life never makes it easy and these two have one heck of a journey ahead of them.


“I’m talking about the flirting, the chemistry – the way he played me in the best possible way and got my body reacting to everything he did with barely a touch.”


Kenzie was a woman you couldn’t help but love, she had the patience of a saint, was as honest as the day was long and had one motto in life, no lies, ever. Kenzie lived and died by her motto. She had seen first-hand the damage that lies can do and this was one rule she would never break…until she met Millen.


“This is wrong. This is crazy. This is – ”
“This is something bigger than the both of us.


Millen Ross was completely and utterly adorable. He was endearing, he was loyal to a fault, self-sacrificing and an heir to the Ross empire, an empire that his father had worked tirelessly to see succeed. Millen oozed sex appeal and as ever with BJ Harvey, she writes formidable men. I found myself reading between the lines with this book, deep down you know the man and I found myself wondering who was pulling his strings.


“Love isn’t perfect…It’s how you work through it all that’s important. The hard stuff, the obstacles, the highs, the lows, the triumphs, and the tragedies. It’s a beautiful pain that’s always worth it if you’re both willing to work to make things right.” ~ Kenzie’s Dad


When Kenzie and Millen are together the pages were combustible, the banter was cute and funny and really brought these two characters to life. I adored their first meet, I instantly felt their connection and these two were a couple I couldn’t help but champion along.


“When we’re apart I’m broken. When we’re together I’m whole.”


BJ Harvey pulls out the big guns in this book, yes there is drama, but what do you expect with an angsty romance. I ran the gamut of emotions, the air was blue a time or two, and as I said above, death threats may have been made, but I loved the fact that BJ Harvey managed to elicit these emotions in the first place, because it meant that she had done her job and done it well. I adored this book and the epilogue goes a long way to make up for the journey that BJ Harvey took me on. Sometimes the heart just knows.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***


“Was this possibly their karmic retribution, their day in the sun?”


Julie Richman delivers one unique story that will capture your heart implicitly. This was a trope I hadn’t read before and as the words unfolded my attention was captured from the very beginning. This was a book I went into totally blind, I didn’t even read the blurb and I am glad, because the unexpected was utterly breath taking. Julie Richman never fails to deliver exceptionally heart felt stories and Love on the Edge of Time was no different, the emotion and the character connection was all on point and it is these attributes that really suck you in, taking you along for one hell of a ride.


“Which part of the loss cut the deepest, was difficult to discern, but I had the distinct feeling that it was the death of a dream that would have the most lasting and devastating impact.”


Fate and destiny, something that we want to believe in and yet somehow you always remain a sceptic. But when the evidence is before you that it does exist, do you go with the flow or fight? This was an inspiring read and really leaves your brain running a mile a minute. I am being deliberately vague because I don’t want to give anything away, but this is definitely a book that you need to go into without any preconceived notions. Let the words transport you, envelope you, and take you on one emotional roller coaster.


“…Even if I didn’t know the truth about us, did you ever think I’d let you go?”


This is a longer book than most and while I appreciated everything I read I did feel the beginning was a little slow. However, once the essence of the book became clear I was all in and couldn’t put it down, so if you do pick this book up and struggle in the beginning, like I did, give it the benefit of the doubt. You won’t be disappointed.

With flashbacks to the past I was totally engrossed as Julie Richman showed her true talent. At times I did feel the flashbacks were a little too long and took me out of the present, but sometimes it was like reading a story within a story that brought a whole new dimension to this overall.


“You’re a gift, Kylie. Like an angel who came into my life. I’d be a fool not to see that. And I’m not sure I deserve you, but I’ll be damned if I let go.”


I really cannot say anymore without giving away this plot, so I am just going to say, this is no cookie cutter book, neither is this a typical Julie Richman read, however, it was stunning. Julie Richman’s trademark signature writing is prevalent throughout as she transports you into the lives her characters have led and will leave you gagging for more. The ending I never saw coming and I admire the author for delivering the story the characters demanded. Fantastic read.

Excerpt:

This time he didn’t text. He just called, waking her at two-fifteen a.m. “Bare-ly dressed again tonight?” Her laugh, filled with sleep was gruff. “Barely dressed every night.” “What exactly do you have on?” “A pink tank top and pink silk bikini.” “Take them off,” he ordered. “Excuse me,” there was an element of surprise in Kylie’s voice. “You heard me. Take them off. Now.” Just hearing rustling on the other end of the line, he could feel his cock stiffen and it felt damn good after all this time. Baby, I’m back, he thought. “We’re having phone sex? But, Jesse, we haven’t even kissed yet,” her protest was weak. And even she knew it. “Yes, we’re having phone sex, and when I get back to New York, we’re going to do a lot more than kiss. You’ve friend-zoned me, Toots, and I’m busting out.” Kylie was smiling on her end of the phone. Friend-zoned Jesse Fucking Winslow? Was he serious? “Nobody puts Jesse in a friend-zone,” she couldn’t help herself. “Are they off?” He totally ignored her joke. “Mmm-hmm.” “What was that?” he asked, his voice gruff and serious. “Yes, they’re off.” “Okay, spread your legs, and with your phone, take a picture of your pussy for me.” “Seriously?” She knew she was blushing in the dark. “Take the picture, Kylie.” “Okay, but if you sell this to the paparazzi, I will kill you.” There was a rustling sound, then, “Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’m doing this.” He laughed. “Okay, here it comes. I hope it’s photogenic. It would be really embarrassing to have a non-photogenic pussy.” Pulling the phone from his ear to look, Kylie could hear his moan, exciting her even more. “So photogenic, Toots, just like the rest of you. And I love the red landing strip. It’s so hot. Oh, man, I love this. Spread your legs wider and use one hand to spread your lips open for me and send me another.” Following his directions, she did as he requested.

About the Author: 


I must've been 5 or 6 when I started writing "stories". I would write them and hide them. Not wanting anyone to see my "secret" thoughts. I needed to write - even back then. Now I'm just not hiding them anymore. Is that a sign of maturity? Nah... Writer, photographer, insatiable wanderluster, edge-player, foodie, music addict, pop culture fanatic, animal lover, warrior for the rights of people and planet, and avid cusser (am a Native New Yorker, so very little offends me...and if I am offended, it must be pretty freaking bad..like bad grammar!) I am a big believer in signs and if we keep ourselves open, there are guideposts all along the way. Stay humble. Be true. Be you. Life is not a dress rehearsal...
