Lana Biel finds herself pregnant and alone. Her pregnancy is a result of a spring fling and she faces raising her child alone. However, she has a great support system including her best friend, Eli and her sister, Karin.
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT was a marvelous story featuring two strong characters. Lana is a woman who had aspirations to see the world but life throws a curveball her way. I found her to be a realistic character as she makes the hard decisions regarding her pregnancy. At times, I didn’t like Lana all that much but Eli is fabulous. He is everything you could want in a man. He is not an over-the-top alpha male. Eli is sensitive, warm and understanding. He is someone Lana can depend upon. They have tremendous chemistry together. The reader is aware of their past history and it is apparent they harbor feelings for each other.
There is a secondary storyline featuring Karin and her quest for a child. Karin is consumed by her need for a child and she has even offered to adopt Lana’s baby. The author does a great job of defining Karin, her husband and their relationship. At points of the story, Karin wasn’t very likable but she will grow on you and ultimately, the reader can understand her actions as her desperation for a child grows.
This is my first book by Lisa Dale and it won’t be my last. IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT is a heartwarming story that will definitely bring forth emotions, positive and negative.
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW
