Review:

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I wish I could say I loved the novella but I unfortunately I didn't. I just couldn't warm up to the characters and I must admit that I was expecting Gabriel to remember Penny instead of just seeing him get the feeling that they had met before. Also I found his excuse for not being able to meet with Penny ten years ago fit for a cheesy and cliche romantic movie.  I have read other books by Lauren Blakely and I have loved them, but this one was a disappointment. It's not that I didn't like I but I was expecting more. There wasn't too much drama and the story wasn't just about sex which made things bearable. I don't have any words to describe this novella because I just wasn't feeling it. I didn't love it or hate it. I would recommend it but with a half heart.








About THE ONLY ONE:

From the New York Times bestselling author of THE SEXY ONE comes a romance about fate and second chances.

Let’s say there was this guy. And he gave you the most mind-blowing night of sex in your life. And you never saw him again.

Until ten years later.

Now, it turns out he’s the ONLY ONE in all of Manhattan whose restaurant is available for my charity’s event.

The trouble is, he doesn’t recognize me.

***

This woman I’m working with is so damn alluring. The first time I set eyes on her, I’m captivated and I can’t get her out of my mind. Even if it’s risky to tango with someone I’m working with, she’s a risk I’m willing to take.

The trouble is, she won’t give me the time of day.

But I’m determined to change that.

~Beneath The Covers Book Blog

"This is an epic second chance romance that filled my heart with love, hope and longing."

~5-Stars! Two Book Pushers

"Lauren has knocked this one out of the park and down the street into the kitchen of Rocco DiSpirito. This book is smart, sexy, and full of surprises with characters you can't help but fall in love with. I want to find my very own Gabriel now. A sexy man with an accent who can cook for me. Who could ask for anything more?"

~Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews

"Insanely romantic and so genuinely charming..."
