In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She's the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He's a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella's favorite refuge…the local cemetery.
Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah's friends. Once he's sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won't have time for her anymore. Too bad she's already fallen for him.
"It changed me. You... changed me."
Naturally as soon as I heard about this novella from Katie McGarry I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I have been an enormous fan of Katie McGarry since I got an ARC of her debut novel Pushing the Limits. I fell head over heels in love with the book, and her writing. To date I have read every single thing she has published and each book I devoured in one sitting. I adore her. Red At Night was no different. This short novella set in the same universe as the phenomenal Pushing the Limits series it has everything you have come to expect from a Katie McGarry book.
Stella doesn't know what to do when popular guy Jonah started showing interest in her. Matched in an unlikely friendship sparks start to fly but Stella knows one thing. Love doesn't exist and letting people in only means getting hurt. Can Jonah convince her to give love a chance before she destroys the one true thing in her life?
I loved Red At Night. It's perfect if you're looking for a short one-sit read. Katie once again drags you in with her addictive writing style. I was sucked into the storyline of Stella and Jonah. It didn't take long for me to empathise with Stella. She has had such an awful life so far and all I wanted was for her to have her happy ending. Jonah is super sweet and what I love most about it is that he's not perfect. He makes mistakes and learns from them. That's what I love about Katie McGarry boys. They aren't perfect they prove that they are human.
Red At Night is a must-read for any Katie McGarry fan. It's set in the same world as our favourite series and we even get a glimpse of the awesome Mrs Collins. Red At Night was everything I wanted from a Katie McGarry book and it's just made me more excited for her next novel.
"I know who I want to be and I want you by my side as I become that person."
