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 the night of my charity’s gala.
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.

THE ONLY ONE is a standalone novella following characters first introduced in THE SEXY ONE (Gabriel) and WELL HUNG (Penny).

Maria’s Review

➦I liked it. I liked it a lot. This short novella was surprisingly satisfying. Little angst, good amounts of steam and a whole lot of romance. 🙂

➦These two main characters meet after being apart for 10 years. Penny is pissed because Gabriel never showed up for their rendezvous in the US and never contacted her after they had 3 magical days in Europe. Gabriel is confused because she looks different now and refuses to admit they’ve met before.

➦So what happened 10 years go? What prevented these two from building a life together? Will they re-unite now and live happily ever after?

➦This read was very enjoyable and kept my interest because there was a bit of a mystery factor about what happened in the past. There was also anticipation to find out how the big reveal of Penny’s identity would go down. All in all, it’s a fast and delightful read with a lot of romance and low amounts of drama. 🙂 Recommended!
