“ONE AND ONLY was a carefree and fun story and if you’re looking for a sweet contemporary romance that will put you in a good mood, then you should give it a try.”
~ Under the Covers

I couldn’t resist the cuteness of this cover and the fact this was a wedding themed storyline.  I don’t usually read a lot of those, but when I do I tend to enjoy them and I thought it would be the perfect chance to try this author.  And for the most part this was a sweet intro to a series and a great place to start reading this author.  But some other things I didn’t really care enough about to give it a higher rating.

First of all, I loved the heroine.  She’s smart, independent, accomplished, and the responsible friend.  She’s lived her life without taking a lot of risks or much excitement and that’s in part of something in her past.  But I really liked her because she was real and solid.  When she meets the hero, and obviously he’s a 180 from her, I felt that she might’ve stepped out of her comfort zone a little too easily for me.  I guess I wanted her to have more internal struggles about some of the things she was getting into instead of just changing her personality in the spur of the moment.

Then there’s the hero.  He’s so sexy and easygoing I can see how anyone would get swept off her feet.  He’s also sweet and has lived his life knowing people had such low expectations of him he felt like maybe he should just meet them, or let them believe he did.  That was both sad and sweet.  And I wanted him to have a more take charge attitude towards his life because that’s something I find sexy.  I think he was still trying to find his way and that was a little bit of a turn off for me.

ONE AND ONLY was a carefree and fun story and if you’re looking for a sweet contemporary romance that will put you in a good mood, then you should give it a try.  I’m very interested in this group of girls and I can’t wait for the next one in the series.  I have a feeling I’m going to love it because I just adored Wendy.

I may try this. However, I agree with your wanting more an internal struggle with something and having more of a take charge attitude.
