“With a sexy hero and a strong heroine, overall this is a great story…”
~ Under the Covers

ONLY YOU is one of my favorite kind of stories and one I always think works great for a novella.  A second chance romance!  With the limited page count, it makes the HEA believable for me when there’s already such a big connection.

In this case, Amy and Luke were high school sweethearts but she broke up with him when he left for college thinking a long distance relationship wouldn’t work and she didn’t want to hurt more when he ended up breaking up with her in the future.

Now, years later, she’s a single mom to an autistic son and he’s divorced and living in a different place.  But he comes in to town for their friends’ wedding and wants to reconnect with Amy right away.  I liked that Luke was the stronger pursuer of the relationship while Amy was more reserved and had her doubts.  She’s definitely in a position where she has to be more careful who she lets into her life.  Her son is her primary focus and I loved that about her character.  It shows through very well.  I also happened to love the way Luke connection with Noah!  Talk about adorable!  Of course, it helped that he’s a doctor and knew how to best approach Noah.

As much as it was nice to see these two get an HEA, the story is pretty short and I wanted a bit more.  But for the enjoyment it provided as a quick read in one sitting, I definitely thought it was a good story.  Novellas are always tricky because you can’t get as invested in the characters, and there was some of that in this one for me.  But I think the combination of the rescue dog (love it!) and the real way the author portrayed Noah and the issues that parents deal with autistic kids made it a worthwhile read and added the level of depth that it needed.

ONLY YOU is a sweet small town contemporary that gives two characters the second chance they deserve after life had taken them down hard and different paths.  With a sexy hero and a strong heroine, overall this is a great story and I can’t wait to read more from this author.

  1. Novellas are good for second chance stories… but I usually want more!…so for that reason I tend to avoid them

  2. Thanks for the review, sometimes I like quick sweet reads. They’re like pallet cleansers and good for when you have little time.
