It Happens All the Time

A Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From master storyteller Amy Hatvany—whose writing has been hailed as “gripping and emotionally honest” (Stephanie Evanovich, New York Times betselling author)—comes a provocative and compelling novel about two friends whose lives are changed by a drunken kiss.

I want to rewind the clock, take back the night when the world shattered. I want to erase everything that went wrong.

Amber Bryant and Tyler Hicks have been best friends since they were teenagers—trusting and depending on each other through some of the darkest periods of their young lives. And while Amber has always felt that their relationship is strictly platonic, Tyler has long harbored the secret desire that they might one day become more than friends.

Returning home for the summer after her college graduation, Amber begins spending more time with Tyler than she has in years. Despite the fact that Amber is engaged to her college sweetheart, a flirtation begins to grow between them. One night, fueled by alcohol and concerns about whether she’s getting married too young, Amber kisses Tyler.

What happens next will change them forever.

In alternating points of view, It Happens All the Time examines the complexity of sexual dynamics between men and women and offers an incisive exploration of gender roles, expectations, and the ever-timely issue of consent.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 20, 2017 – Hatvany (Somewhere Out There) takes a risk with this disturbing study of the sexual and power dynamics of friendship and love. Set in Bellingham, Wash., the novel opens with aspiring sports trainer Amber holding a gun on paramedic Tyler, declaring that she hates him, and his calm admission that I hate me, too. Then, in alternating chapters, each of them unveils the missed cues, denials, and doubts that led once the former best friends to an act of violence that changed everything. Hatvany keeps the pace fast, slickly layering her two complicated characters: Amber is recovering from an eating disorder as she juggles a new career and a first romance with medical student Daniel; Tyler is emotionally devastated by a domineering father who belittles him, and he struggles to find love while he secretly longs for Amber. Tyler and Amber s violent clash after a night of drinking is inevitable as is Amber s revenge. Thanks to Hatvany s powerful storytelling, there is a richness in these conflicted characters that makes changes of head and heart seem both unpredictable and possible.
