Book Review: It Happened One Night by Lisa Dale

Thursday, November 26, 2009 Posted by Dina N

It Happened One Night by Lisa Dale is a love story. It is about the journey of two people towards each other. Two best friends, one-night lovers in college, all grown up and only one of them fully aware of his feelings. Lana wants to travel the world, her wanderlust making her restless. Eli is already traveling the world, his desire to settle down with the woman he's loved for years getting stronger. They seem to want entirely different things. Lana is dating a succession of men, never venturing below the superficial. Without realizing the reasons behind it, she prefers uncomplicated, short-term relationships that would not hurt her once it's over. Eli has always known he wants Lana as more than a friend but nurses his broken heart in silence. It takes a while until they both find in each other everything they ever wanted.

The book follows the complicated emotional journey of Eli and Lana, and dwells on their meandering thoughts and feelings. Eli and Lana's minds and hearts go in circles, just like it happens sometimes in real life. It's not easy to love for these two, and there is a lot of going back and forth until each realizes the true strength of their bond.
