Book Review: The Only One by Lauren Blakely

The Only One: A One Love Novella
Let’s say there was this guy. And he gave you the most mind-blowing night of sex in your life. And you never saw him again.
Until ten years later.
Now, it turns out he’s the ONLY ONE in all of Manhattan whose restaurant is available the night of my charity’s gala.
The trouble is, he doesn’t recognize me.
This woman I’m working with is so damn alluring. The first time I set eyes on her, I’m captivated and I can’t get her out of my mind. Even if it’s risky to tango with someone I’m working with, she’s a risk I’m willing to take.
The trouble is, she won’t give me the time of day.
But I’m determined to change that.

The Only One is a sweet second chance romance. It reminds a lot of a feel good Hallmark movie I'd watch while snuggling up in a blanket with a hot cup of chocolate. 

Penelope Jones waited at a fountain in Manhattan for two hours for the man she fell in love with while in Spain. When he didn't show Penelope moved on. Ten years later, Penny (aka Penelope) must find a new caterer last minute for the Picnic in the Park event that will raise money for a coalition of local animal rescues. To her surprise her best options is also the man who had left her waiting at the fountain so long ago, Gabriel Mathias. 

Gabriel has a feeling that he's met Penny before, she seems familiar. He questions her but she insists that they haven't met. He's determined to get to know her and pursues a date. 

Will Penny give love a second chance or continue to deny their past? I enjoyed this short story. It's a feel-good, second chance type of love story. It also reminds me that I should write down all the information I store on my phone just in case. 4.5 Stars.
