It Happens All The Time

Synopsis (from Amazon): 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.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Wow. It Happens All The Time tackles a very difficult and very real subject, date rape.  This book flips back and forth between the Amber and Tyler is told from their perspective.  For me, getting the perspective from both sides of the story is very important when discussing difficult topics.  It makes it even more real as I read the book.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I have read Outside the Lines and Heart Like Mine.  I would like to read her other books, especially, Somewhere Out There, Safe with Me, Best Kept Secret and The Language of Sisters.
