Blog Tour & Review - The Night That Changed Everything by Laura Taitand Jimmy Rice

Rebecca is the only girl she knows who didn't cry at the end of Titanic. Ben is the only man he knows who did. Rebecca’s untidy but Ben doesn’t mind picking up her pieces. Ben is laid back by Rebecca keeps him on his toes. They're a perfect match.

Nothing can come between them. Or so they think.

When a throwaway comment reveals a secret from the past, their love story is rewritten.

Can they recover from the night that changed everything? And how do you forgive when you can’t forget?

The Night That Changed Everything is a funny, feel-good and bittersweet story, told in alternate chapters by Laura Tait and Jimmy Rice.

I would like to thank transworld publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I don't know where to start with my review so will start with the intriguing cover, it's so eye catching and had me dying to read the blurb.

I love how this book is told from both Ben and Rebecca's POV via alternate chapters, it really kept me intrigued and turning each page.  

I don't want to give to much away about the story but it's about relationships and friendships.  The crux is how things can change in the blink of an eye when a secret is revealed.

Unusually this story isn't about how Ben and Rebecca get together, although this is revealed in the story.  It's about how they split up and the impact it has on them and their friends.

I think because it's written by two different authors try mange to get into the head of each character, which is very hard unless you know them inside out and clearly both these authors do.

A fabulous read and I will be reading more from the authors.

Jimmy and Laura became friends while studying journalism at Sheffield University, so sitting in pubs talking about life and love is something they’ve been doing for the last ten years. Now they write it all down, but little else has changed. Jimmy still tells Laura off for always being late, and Laura can still drink Jimmy under the table. Their friendship survives because Laura makes tea exactly how Jimmy likes it (he once took a picture of his perfect brew on Laura’s phone so she can colour match is for strength) and because Jimmy noted Laura’s weakness for custard creams and stocks up accordingly. Laura works as a journalist for Shortlist and Jimmy is a news journalist.
