If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout ~ Review & Quote-tastic (@JLArmentrout, @HarlequinAUS)

Jennifer L. Armentrout is a master at writing stories that can shatter your heart, and that's what If There's No Tomorrow did to me. It was such a fantastic read as I got to know Lena and experience what she went through.

Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.

Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.

For what she let happen.

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends' entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?

What an amazing read If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout turned out to be! It's the type of book that will leave a huge impact on the reader, and I know it will be on my mind for a long time to come. I fell in love with all the characters and my heart shattered when I realised what happened. It was truly a masterpiece, and I cannot imagine how difficult this story would've been to write.

The characters were just like other normal teenagers, finishing their final year of school, but they weren't perfect, they made mistakes and one decision changed life as they knew it. The emotional turmoil I felt was amazing. I saw the close friendships that had been developed, the love that was strong between others, but I also felt the loss and the difficulty of trying to get past a situation that had turned numerous lives upside-down.

Lena was such a nice sweet girl, who had close friends and her best friend was Sebastian. She wasn't a popular girl, more of a nerdy girl who loved to read. She had it a little hard at home, as her parents had split, but she was positive and bubbly most of the time. I could see that her relationship with Sebastian was shifting, but they were both struggling with those teenage emotions and hormones. I loved Sebastian, he was the jock guy, but he was kind and caring and always had time for Lena.

Jennifer L. Armentrout is an author that I have loved over the years. She creates characters that are easy to relate to and puts them in situations that we may face at some stage in our lives. The connection between the characters felt real and I was hoping that Lena and Sebastian would be able to get through the rough time together. I hope we get more stories from this world, because I would love to see other perspectives of this situation.

I realised this quote was late, but it was amusing! 

“We find better uses for our lips and our tongues.”
Eyes wide, I coughed out a laugh. “Did you really just say that out loud?”
“Yes. Yeah, I did, and I don’t take it back.” He leaned in, and I jerked when his forehead rested against mine. “No shame in my game.”
“I don’t think you have any game.”
“Oh, I have game,” he replied smoothly. “So much you wouldn’t know what to do with all of it.”
