My name is Tyler Hayes, and I’m a fireman.
Sorry to already disappoint you, but I’m not the person you think I am.
My charming uniform and seductive smile have caused nothing but trouble, and my not-so-honourable reputation, which I used to be so proud of, has kept me away from the one person I wanted to spend the rest of my life baking cookies for; my sweet, beautiful, slightly crazy Miss White.
I guess now I need to tell the whole story.
At forty years old, following years of self-sabotage, I’ve suddenly found myself admitting that I know absolutely nothing. Maybe my friend Niall was right when he told me to accept the process and just grow up. And now it’s too late; I’ll never be able to keep her close to me. All that’s left to do is watch helplessly – but deservedly – as my world comes tumbling down around me.
I was very pleased to be invited on the blog tour for About Last Night.
This was the first novel I have read by this author so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
The premise in general intrigued me and although it took me a while to get into the book, once I did, I couldn’t put it down.
I warmed to Holly pretty much straight away. I admire her pushing herself out of her comfort zone but I also had the feeling early on that there was more to her and the move to Ireland. I felt she was holding something back. I had a couple of theories as I read. I could sense a mystery and this was a great incentive to read on.
Tyler was a little harder to like, at least to begin with. I wasn’t sure how to take him. It was interesting to see how he developed over the course of the novel and story. I did like the fact that the story was written from both the point of view of Holly and Tyler. The supporting characters were brilliant and there wasn’t one I didn’t like.
There were many moments where I laughed out loud and others where I truly felt for the characters. I don’t want to say much more as I don’t to give too much away. What I will say is that this is a unique novel that pulls you in until you can’t stop reading. I really enjoyed this book and I hope it is one you add to your booklist.
