My Review –
5 One moment can change everything Stars!!
Thank you so very much Ms.Ann for sending me a copy of One!! I am so honored and grateful!! 🙂
This was my first time reading Ms.Ann’s work and I can say right now that it won’t be the last time either!! One isn’t your everyday romcom no ma’am it’s so much more! It made me laugh like crazy, blush until i could feel the heat radiating off my face, feel all sorts of emotions, and realize my self worth in ways I hadn’t before. This book is beautiful, flat out hilarious, sweet, sexy, and eloquent. Life is filled with moments you’ll remember always whether it be good or bad but it only takes one to change everything which I loved that this story showed that. In my opinion it’s a feel good kind of story that isn’t surgar coated and shows true obstacles that are extremely relatable. Ms.Ann not only captured my attention with her words but my heart as well. She is definitely an author to watch and I’m looking forward to picking up more of her books in the future!! 🙂
Lake Jones was a character that was in an accident that led her to becoming a tester of sorts for revolutionary kind of prosthetics created by her friend Thad. Her humor knew no bounds and left me a giggling mess. I liked the fact that she always tried her best to bring lightness to matters. She was very selfless and wanted the best for others. My heart broke for her during certain points. Her strong will really was front and center throughout which I adored. The realtionship she had with her family was really heart-warming and her dad was my favorite! I adored her friendships with Penny , Everson AKA Kong, and Shayna. Her cat Trzy will forever be one of the most uncooperative animals in literary history. From the very beginning to the very end I loved her as a character. I would say she’s one of the most kick-butt and uplifting heroines ever. I hoped that in the end she would find the one and be able to live without the past haunting her.
Cage Monaghan was a character that played quarterback for Minnesota. He had achieved his dreams and thought he had it all until a woman he met years before appears in his life again. sure what to think of him at first and I didn’t know whether he was genuine or not. I absolutely judged him too quickly because he totally stole my heart! Gosh he was so incredibly kind and just an overall great guy. Some of the things he did left me a swooning mess *cough cough* China. He had demons of his own that were relentless at times. The lengths he went to prove to Lake that she was different and spontaneously doing things for her just because showed what she meant to him. The way he lived and breathed football was highly admirable. He was a different kind of hero and i adored his character. I liked that I got to see into his mind at times with his point of view. In the end I hoped that he would be happy in whatever he did in life and wouldn’t let love pass him by.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will make your day brighter and keep you entertained. Lake and Cage’s story isn’t just a love story but rather about how two people can grow and find completeness they never knew was missing. I could read this story over and over and still not tire of it it’s just that awesome! Even though I haven’t read The Jack and Jill Series I didn’t feel as if anything was spoiled to the point that I wouldn’t want to pick the books up. In fact it made me curious enough that I plan to dive into them as soon as possible to discover more about certain secondary characters mentioned in this story. If you haven’t already One-Clicked Buy it Today!! You won’t regret it!! I can guarantee you that this will be one of the best books you read in all of 2016!! 5 Stars all around!! 🙂
