Book ~ "The Story of Us" (2014) Dani Atkins

From Goodreads ~ Emma Marshall can't wait to marry her childhood sweetheart, Richard. But then a tragic accident changes everything, and introduces a stranger, Jack, into her life. Gorgeous and mysterious, Jack is like no one Emma has met before. But Richard is the man she loves.

Two different men.

Two different destinies.

How will Emma end her story?

Emma is engaged to marry Richard in a couple weeks. As Emma and her two best friends, Caroline and Amy, are driving home from her bachelorette party with a sober Caroline at the wheel, they get into an accident. Jack, an American writer who is living in England for a few months, happens to come along and helps them before the car explodes. Unfortunately Amy doesn't survive the accident which obviously postpones the wedding. Emma and Jack are drawn to each other and become even closer after Emma learns a heartbreaking thing about Richard.

I thought this story was okay. I found it was a bit draggy and the writing could have been tighter. It is written in first person perspective from Emma's point of view. I found the last chapter a bit confusing so had to read it a few times to realize how it ended. As a head's up, there is swearing and adult activity.
