Ms. Harvey knows how to start a story. Dang, the prologue just sucks you in and makes you *gasp*. It is a very strong beginning to a great story. Since it was so intriguing, it was a very quick read that was easy to get immersed in and loose track of time.
One Shot is full of angst, tons of drama, happy romantic times as well as plenty of heartbreaking moments. Millen and Kenzie were enthralled with each other from the get go. Their chemistry is off the charts electric and the banter between them incredibly funny at times. This was one couple that just clicked from the get-go.
Millen is so incredibly sweet, but keeps personal and professional life close to his chest. Expectations were placed on him that he felt he had to obliged to, because he was the only son. He doesn’t agree with what’s expected of him, but doesn’t know what to do. One thing he never expected was Kenzie. She is his one and only.
Kenzie is a thirty-two year old manager at a local bar. After a brief stint as a cop in San Francisco she realizes her heart isn’t in it and decides to return home. She is happy and content with her life when Millen enters her bar. It was an immediate magnetic attraction. Due to some familial issues, she has a hard time trusting guys and has some personal rules she lives by. After spending an astounding weekend with Millen, she gets ghosts by him. This causes some internal strife. Does she stay and fight for him? Does she just give up and move on? Does she even trust her feelings? All this combined to one incredibly angsty book. Wow, what an ending.
There are some secondary characters that round out this immensely enjoyable cast. One of them happens to be Kenzie’s best friend, Gaby. The relationship between these two is off the charts hilarious. I love Gary’s spirit and was a welcome addition.
Overall, I give this book 5 stars. For this who may be leery to read this book, there is no cheating between the main characters. Truly, BJ Harvey has outdone herself with One Shot, proving that sometimes all you need is One Shot at love!
‘And I’m going to spend a lifetime loving you. Tonight, and all the tomorrows.’
