|Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall—a different one every time—and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit—he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.
But it’s a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us.
I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.
|I think Only You by Melanie Harlow is the best friends to lovers romance I read in a long time.
Creating a bridge from friends to lovers is not an easy feature I believe when it comes to writing a book. Simply because the reader has to believe what is happening and to find something that changes a situation that drastically is not as easy as it might seem.
Melanie Harlow did a great job at that.
She describes two leads that are so different that it is really a miracle in itself that they are connecting so well as friends. But somehow she pulls it off. And even more I could connect to the leads really well. The authors writing style allowed it to understand what they were thinking and follow the story.
The plot itself feels believable in a strange kind of way. Meaning while it might be rare that it could happen – I would still believe that IF it happened it would be like she described it … (If that makes any sense to you) …
Well written, great characters and a solid plot are all the ingredients that I needed to really like this book and it will be all you need to do the same.
