#MMBBR #Review It Happens All the Time by @AmyHatvany @AtriaBooks

It Happens All the Time: A Novel by [Hatvany, Amy]

ABOUT THE BOOK:
From master storyteller Amy Hatvany—whose writing has been hailed as “gripping and emotionally honest” (Stephanie Evanovich, New York Times betselling author)—comes a provocative and compelling novel about two friends whose lives are changed by a drunken kiss.

I want to rewind the clock, take back the night when the world shattered. I want to erase everything that went wrong.

Amber Bryant and Tyler Hicks have been best friends since they were teenagers—trusting and depending on each other through some of the darkest periods of their young lives. And while Amber has always felt that their relationship is strictly platonic, Tyler has long harbored the secret desire that they might one day become more than friends.

Returning home for the summer after her college graduation, Amber begins spending more time with Tyler than she has in years. Despite the fact that Amber is engaged to her college sweetheart, a flirtation begins to grow between them. One night, fueled by alcohol and concerns about whether she’s getting married too young, Amber kisses Tyler.

What happens next will change them forever.

In alternating points of view, It Happens All the Time examines the complexity of sexual dynamics between men and women and offers an incisive exploration of gender roles, expectations, and the ever-timely issue of consent.


Hatvany is fearless when it comes to her writing and it shows.  She is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects and does so with authenticity, care and honesty.  She writes from multiple perspectives, so you have a deeper feel for the story.  This is one of those reads that is more than a story, is is about life.  It is important and relevant to what is happening now.  It was uncomfortable to read at times, but the story was so well written, with dynamic dialogue, interesting and complex characters and issues that are worth exposing and exploring!  Another hit and a book I will not soon forget!!!
