One Life by A.J. Pine ♡♡♡♡.5

One Life (Only You, #2)One Life by A.J. Pine is the second book in the Only You series. You don't need to have read the first book, One Night, but this book references some of the characters, and it was a great story. One Life was an even better story.

One Life tells the story of Zoe and Spock (whose name is Zach, but we meet as Spock). Zoe is going through a hard time after the death of her brother, and Spock/Zach is there to help her pick up the pieces.

I really enjoyed this story because it addresses addiction in an honest and real way. It was a powerful story of love, loss, and overcoming some of the hard things people go through. The story felt real and honest, and it was easy to relate to the characters.

If you're not reading A.J. Pine, then you definitely should start. She tells great stories that are about more than just falling in love and making it work. Her stories are about falling in love even when you don't want to while life continues around what is happening to the characters, and that makes the stories feel more real.

ONE LIFE blurb: 

In the latest from the author of One Night, tragedy causes a young woman to struggle to keep her head above water, and the only one who can help her is the guy who’s been in the friend zone for the past year . . .
 
Every time life throws Zoe Adler a curve ball, she changes her appearance. Freshmen year—after almost following in her mother’s alcoholic footsteps—she said good-bye to her blonde, girl-next-door image and opted for jet black hair and piercings galore. After her brother Wyatt’s death, she escapes to the city to teach a summer art program for kids. Her black hair goes blue, and she finds solace in the arms of a longtime friend, in his heart, and in his bed—but her guilt makes her unable to accept the love he wants to give.
 
Spock might be the guy to save Zoe. But when she learns the truth about his past, the edge she’s teetered on since losing Wyatt drops out from under her. The girl who kept it together for everyone finally falls apart. Now Zoe must choose between drowning in guilt about Wyatt or asking for help. But even if she gets the help she needs, Spock may not be waiting for her when she’s ready to let love in.

But you can't keep on pretending forever...
   
      
Twenty-one-year-old Jess used to have everything--a loyal best friend, a boyfriend she loved, and a future that was right on track. But in a single night, her whole world changed.
   
   
Now, Jess lives for the impersonal connection of drunken hook-ups and to-go coffee cups in the morning. All she needs is one night to pretend everything is fine...until she meets Adam.
   
   
Thanks to a sports injury, gorgeous, charming basketball star Adam Carson is stuck in physical therapy at the hospital where Jess interns--giving her the perfect opportunity to see his sweet, considerate nature and making her realize that maybe she does want something more.
   
   
But while Adam might be the best thing that's happened to Jess in a long time, letting him past  her carefully constructed walls means letting him know what happened...and why he'd never want her for more than one night.
