VeganYANerds - Great review, Estelle! I really want to read this even though I didn’t enjoy one of Lauren’s other books, Two Way Street, very much (the mis-communication annoyed me).

I too love when you feel just like the main character does, I think it comes down to good writing and the character being really easy to relate to.

Cialina - Oh I love Lauren Barnholdt! But as much as I love her writing style, this one isn’t my favorite. It’s mostly because of the moral issue, as you have pointed it out. I know the point of the story is that things happen, and sometimes things are complicated, but I just couldn’t let go. I still haven’t read One Night, but I don’t expect it to be better than my favorite Barnholdt book: Two-Way Street.
