One Night

He was the writer, the musician, the skater, the loner. We were off to college but then one little problem stands in the way...he gets me pregnant.

Rosie Thinks: I'm usually not a fan of pregnancy stories, but this one is just... wow. The summary definitely caught my eye at first and this is a story I could read again and again. It's not overly long - 30 000 words - but awaitinglove spins a bewitching story within that time. It's not overly complicated but it still has an original plot line and individual, un-stereotypical characters.

James is the incredibly smart loner, who is presented as a bit of a rebel until more of his character is revealed and you see how gentle he really is. Rachel has always been underestimated by her peers due to her looks and is a bit too selfless for her own good. And, fighting with their own inner battles, they form a tentative friendship that soon develops into more. Rachel's emotions are perfectly captured and as a reader, I could really feel them.

This story has the perfect mix of drama and cute-ness, with a poetic prologue and almost perfect grammar. By the epilogue, however, the fluff became almost suffocating, but that could just be me. I guess that after all the drama Rachel and James went through, they do deserve some cliche fluff-iness!
