Only You, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is LIVE!
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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Emme and Nate are next door neighbors and he’s always there for her whenever she needs him. And she does a lot, since she’s a moving disaster. They watch Bond movies together and they have been friends , never crossing that line, because Emme is a relationship type of girl and Nate is the exact opposite with girls parading from his apartment pretty frequently.
One night Nate’s life is changing when he finds himself in a situation that he never wanted. Facing the consequences of this situation, he feels unable to deal with it without Emme on his side. But the circumstances bring these two closer and their relationship is about to change. For better or not, they won’t be the same next door neighbors.
“Resisting Nate Pearson, handsome playboy, was one thing. Resisting Nate Pearson, handsome single dad, was quite another. I wasn’t sure I was up to the task.”
I truly enjoyed this book by Melanie. I genially love the tropes that existed in this novel. Friends to lovers, next door romance, single dad etc. I loved the layers that were beneath these characters, especially Nate had a really fascinating personality. I loved his character growth and how he developed, how from the denial and the freak out, he went through the motions, he accepted and finally embraced the ordeal with Paisley. Also, apart from the situation with her, he had to face his inner demons about Emme and I really liked that the book was focused more on him, because I thought there was potential that was handled perfectly.
This is definitely a book that I would recommend, because not only did I laugh and swoon, but I also had a great time while reading it. I think you also get to see some of her older characters in this one, but I can’t be entirely sure, because I’ve only read Man Candy by the author. Can’t wait to read more by Melanie!
