I read a lot of books across many genres and Dani's debut novel, Fractured, was book of the year for me in 2013. The Story of Us is undoubtedly my No1 read of 2014. If possible(!) it's even better than Fractured. Dani has a unique gift for producing excellent quality page turners, I just couldn't put this book down. Bought it trying to save as a treat for my holiday in a few week's time and made the mistake of reading the first few pages as a taster - stayed up late, woke up early and had to read until finished the next day! Loved the way that The End was interspersed throughout the book. Thought I had guessed how the book would actually end but I was wrong. Superb. Will eagerly await Dani's third book....

Having loved Dani Atkins début, Fractured, I just knew that The Story of Us was going to be good and I was proved right.

As with Fractured, The Story of Us starts with a bang with a tragic accident that leaves Emma and those around her heartbroken. It is through this accident that Emma meets Jack who saves her life. Their connection with one another is definitely a strong one, but is that just because of the accident? And besides, Richard is the man she loves.....Or is there something more there?

I was instantly hooked by The Story of Us just like I was with Fractured and from then on it was unputdownable. Dani really is a brilliant storyteller. It is so easy to get swept up in her books and feel like you are one of the characters. Her stories always manage to be so different to everyone else's and I think that is what makes them so special.

I honestly did not know where this story was going to go. Dani very cleverly throws you off the scent as to which man Emma will choose and even right up until the very last second, I still had no idea how it was going to end.

What I particularly liked about this is that it was split up into five parts and at the beginning of each part we get a little snippet into what the outcome was. I loved these bits and I desperately tried to look for clues, but even in these bits, Dani has you jumping to the very wrong conclusions.

Although I still think Fractured is Dani's best book, I still absolutely loved The Story of Us and it still gets five stars from me.

Review: this is definitely a compelling read-I picked this book up & less than 24 hours later I was done! Like Dani's other novel this story begins with a tragic accident which changes the course of our heroine's life. This unsettled me a bit because I was worried it was basically going to be the same story over again, a story of what if, but thankfully it turned out to be a completely different plot! The storyline itself is still rather tragic and I do feel somewhat wrung out having just finished it! I really liked the structure of it however. In amongst the story, there are chapters entitled The End part one and two and so on. These give you snippets at a time if how the book is going to end, I think this was a really clever way of structuring it. Each time you reach one of these chapters, you changed your mind as to who or what is being talked about as well because of what you've learnt from the main storyline!

I really liked Emma as a heroine. She is sensible and realistic and doesn't seem too scared to go for what she wants and what is right! She does make some slightly dodgy decisions along the way but I was rooting for her. There are a couple if love interests in the story as well and I don't have anything against them but I really loved Emma's friends and the part that they played in the novel-it wouldn't have been the same without them!

As I've said-I really liked the structure of this novel, but found the storyline emotionally draining. It seemed a bit like, whenever something went right for Emna, something else came along & knocked her back dine again. Now I know that this is how life works but I really wanted some good luck for her... The ending as well wasn't what I'd hoped it would be-not giving anything away!

Dani Atkins is an author I have heard a lot about, I have ‘Fractured’ her debut novel on my bookshelf but have not yet got round to reading; however I had heard it is fantastic and its one that I must read and as soon as possible. So when I heard Atkins had a second book out ‘The Story of Us’ I couldn’t wait to read it. As this was the first book I have read by Atkins I didn’t really know what to expect, however I was excited to finally be able to discover this author.

The story starts with the end, Emma getting ready for a wedding; which I quickly began to think could be her own. You as a reader are then transported back to learn about ‘The Story of Us’ We are thrown into a fast paced scene which leads to a tragic accident and one that had me hooked right from the first few pages.

Although the accident includes Emma and her two friends Amy and Caroline and all is not well for them, I felt that I was able to really connect with the characters and got to know them well. The story was definitely an emotional one; one in which really makes you question decisions in your life and wonder what if… Reading the side story about Emma’s mum was one that got to me personally, I have experienced this first hand with another member of the family and know how distraught it can make you feel. (I don’t want to say too much as to spoil the book for you.)

I loved Jack in the story, he was such a hero and he comes across as someone genuine and completely different to Richard. Saying this I warmed to Richard towards the end; he managed to make me see a different side of him along with Emma. I feel that he too was truly sorry and perhaps not the same man as he once was. I also loved all the smaller characters in the story such as Monique, Emma’s boss at a bookstore.
