The Stranger (Just One Night #1)

The Stranger (Just One Night, #1)

Rating: 2 stars
Read: 2013
Format Read: Kindle Edition (ARC)

The Stranger is the story of Kasie and how a reckless night can change her perception of the world.

Kasie is going to get married with her long time boyfriend Dave. They've been dating for 6 years, and their relationship lacks of passion and emotions, it's just boring, predictable and above all stable. One thing to show how it's boring and let's say strange? He didn't actually proposed but they talked to go shopping for a ring. Just how sad is that?

Anyway, the story starts when her best friends tells her "You should sleep with a stranger", when they go to a last Vegas trip, pre-wedding style.

What kind of an advice is that? Why not tell her to broke off with her boyfriend?
Anyway, what was supposed to be a one night thing, becomes more when that man, the one that saw her and not her mask, enters in her life like a storm.

Now, why the 2 stars?
The book is well written and in many parts engaging, where i enjoyed the story...but ultimate my problem with this book was that i didn't connect with the characters, especially with Kasie.
I just couldn't pass all the cheating in the story(and it wasn't a only time thing) and how she just couldn't make up her mind. 
The book just wasn't for me.
