Book Review: One night only by Abby Gale

Goodreads Synopsis:

Life is a struggle…

In the ugly web of illness and pain, every breath I take is a fight to carry on and every doctor visit is another reason to give up.

Love is impossible…

With the bravery afforded me by the knowledge of my limited time, pride has lost its importance. A sensuous touch equals escape and surrender, but also sweet, precious agony.

One Night Only…

A single message is the only thing that matters. A single message that can alter his life forever and erase my pain.

One Night Only… we trade the pain to create a memory of a lifetime.

One Night Only is a stand-alone novella based on a true story

Chick and Brain Rating 5 out of 5

No we all know that I have a series love affair with Abby and with this book. I am a crier, that is obvious but when reading a book like this it touches you at a visceral level that most people are unable to deny. I was these characters, their feelings where my own, and by the end of the story I felt as if my heart had been ripped out of my chest. These are not many books that I can say this about, but I have no words. The best way to describe what is happening is to read it and you will understand.

Gale has a way with words that very few authors posses. She has the ability to reach into your soul and grip you heart with her words and characters so you have no choice but go along for the ride. The premise of this books is a true story, do we know what honestly happened no. I honestly do not want to know, but it does not take anything away from the magnitude of what Gale is trying to get across to us as readers.  Live for today and not tomorrow to ensure that we have no regrets when the end is near. For the characters in this story they were lucky to have one night only, but it will remain with them for the rest of their lives.


Until next time,
