Review Tour: One Life by A.J. Pine (+ Giveaway)


In the latest from the author of One Night, tragedy causes a young woman to struggle to keep her head above water, and the only one who can help her is the guy who’s been in the friend zone for the past year . . .

Every time life throws Zoe Adler a curve ball, she changes her appearance. Freshmen year—after almost following in her mother’s alcoholic footsteps—she said good-bye to her blonde, girl-next-door image and opted for jet black hair and piercings galore. After her brother Wyatt’s death, she escapes to the city to teach a summer art program for kids. Her black hair goes blue, and she finds solace in the arms of a longtime friend, in his heart, and in his bed—but her guilt makes her unable to accept the love he wants to give.

Spock might be the guy to save Zoe. But when she learns the truth about his past, the edge she’s teetered on since losing Wyatt drops out from under her. The girl who kept it together for everyone finally falls apart. Now Zoe must choose between drowning in guilt about Wyatt or asking for help. But even if she gets the help she needs, Spock may not be waiting for her when she’s ready to let love in.

About the Author:

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers' hearts, but don't worry--she'll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality--romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she's not writing, she's of course reading. Then there's online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires and superheroes. You'll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago 'burbs.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

So when I first read this book a few weeks ago, I originally gave it 4 stars but after thinking it over and sitting down to write this review I realized that this book was actually a 5 star read for me. A.J. Pine has once again amazed me with her writing and exceeded all the expectations I had after reading One Night earlier this year. Zoe and Spock's story made me feel all of the things. It was pretty much perfect in every way. Seriously, the more I think about this book, the more I realize that I had no complaints about it. Even with all of their faults, I really loved Zoe and Spock and really connected with them and their story. And the love these two had for each other was really heart-warming and as a couple I loved Zoe and Spock almost as much as I loved Griffin and Maggie in What If which is really saying something.

Overall, I really loved this book. It was an exceptional romance and has made me love A.J. Pine even more than I already did.
