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.
It’s no secret I am a HUGE Melanie Harlow fan… a quick search of her name on this site will return several reviews and posts dating back three years. Trust me: if you enjoy rom-coms with heart and heat… read ANY of her books and thank me later!
Her new Contemporary Romance, Only You, is available today. Like the books that precede it, she puts an original spin on familiar story lines. For example, this book contains “opposites attract,” “sexy neighbors,” “friends to lovers,” “single dad,” and “swoon fest.” What sets it apart from other romances is the author’s storytelling, characters, plot, humor, feels, and depth of complexity. Even the infant in the book is a three-dimensional character with a history and authentic traits. Melanie Harlow never does anything half-way, and as a reader: it never gets old.
I LOVE Nate and Emme’s story. How they meet, the kind, supportive nature of their friendship, their mutual attraction, and early in the book, they circle the wagons when Nate’s world is rocked. As he adjusts to his new normal, he comes to depend on Emme – not just for help with a two-month old daughter, but as a safe harbor in the storms surrounding his life. They both struggle with guarding their hearts from getting involved. How this develops, comes to a head, and is resolved makes for an incredibly satisfying read.
Already looking forward to Melanie Harlow’s next book, but then again: I always do.
Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.
Melanie is the author of the AFTER WE FALL series, the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.
