Chick-Lit Plus Blog Tours: One Pink Line by: Dina Silver

Goodreads Summary: 

Can the love of a lifetime be forever changed by one pink line? Dina Silver’s tender, absorbing novel, One Pink Line, is the warmhearted, wry story of love, loss and family, as seen through the prism of one singular, spirited young couple who find themselves in a predicament that changes the course of their lives, and those closest to them. With heart, humor and compassion, this debut work of women’s fiction is certain to stir anyone who relishes a good laugh, can stand a good cry, and, above all believes in the redemptive power of love. 

This unique, contemporary story gives readers a dual perspective. Sydney Shephard, a sweet-tempered, strong-natured college senior is young, in love with an exceptional man, and unexpectedly pregnant. Faced with a child she never planned for, she is forced to relay this news to her neurotic mother, relinquish her youth, and risk losing the love of her life. Then there’s Grace, a daughter, who believed she was a product of this great love, grows to realize her existence is not what she assumed, and is left with profound and puzzling questions about who she really is. 

Spanning generations and every imaginable emotion, One Pink Line reveals how two points of view can be dramatically at odds, and perhaps ultimately reconciled. Simultaneously deeply felt and lighthearted, One Pink Line deftly mines how the choices we make are able to alter so many lives, and how doing the right thing and living honestly can bring unexpected, hard-won happiness. It’s a must-read for anyone who relishes a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.

My Review:

ReadingNook Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
One Pink Line did it all for me, It made me laugh, cry, and I fell in love with the characters!! Sydney meets the love of her life Ethan when she's only in high school, and the two are completly inseperable until they go off to two seperate colleges, they make it through almost to the very end of their senior year though, until Sydney goes to a Frat Party and circumstances lead her to have a one-night stand with one of her best friends. When Sydney finds out she's pregnant, and that her friend wasn't who she thought he was, will Ethan and her relationship be damaged forever?

I couldn't put this book down, I found myself so invested in the characters and in the storyline that I kept wanting to turn the page, and the whole book felt fast-paced like that for me. I loved Sydney and Ethans' characters, and Ethan is completly swoon-worthy! yum yum! lol I like that the story read almost like a YA novel because other then Chick-Lit that's been my go-to genre for a while now. I like that the story starts with Sydney in High School and ends after her completing college, It felt relatable to me because of the age group.

I love how the two different points of view Sydney and Grace come together, and this book is one of very FEW that made me cry, I don't know what it was but the relationship between Ethan and Sydney felt so real to me that the phone call towards the end with Syd and Ethan made me lose it. If you love YA, contemporary, and /or Chick-lit, or are just a girl in general, I know you would love this book. Its bound to hold some relatability to anyone who's ever been in relationships, made mistakes, and tried to piece their lives back together again. I absolutely loved this story. A+ Dina Silver!!
