If He Had Been with Me by Laura Nowlin

If He Had Been with Me
Blurb (from Goodreads):
If he had been with me everything would have been different...

I wasn't with Finn on that August night. But I should've been. It was raining, of course. And he and Sylvie were arguing as he drove down the slick road. No one ever says what they were arguing about. Other people think it's not important. They do not know there is another story. The story that lurks between the facts. What they do not know—the cause of the argument—is crucial.

So let me tell you...

If He Had Been with Me by Laura Nowlin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If He Had Been with Me(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This story was pretty poor right up until the last 10%. Then we got a good bit, then we got a non-ending. Not impressed.

Autumn was an okay character, but her life was pretty dull. It was obvious that she had it bad for Finny, although it took her 34 chapters to realise it.

The storyline was okay, but very little happened! I wanted to know what had happened to Finny, and I wanted to know why things would have been different had he been with her, but unfortunately we didn’t learn any of this until the 90% mark! At this point the book actually got good, but until that bit it was very average.
I did like the romance in the last 10% of the book, the rest was just poor.

The ending just infuriated me. After all that, the book finally gets good, and then it doesn’t even have an ending! We’re left with multiple questions, no answers, and no freaking end to the story! So not impressed by this at all!
Overall; poor story with no ending!
6 out of 10 (I’m rating this three stars purely for the 10% of this story that was good!)
