ARC REVIEW : Only You by Melanie Harlow


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

Every once in the rarest while, a book shows up like an alien - anonymous and yet in possession of of such ability that made me thinking about reading it. Only You is just such an alien.
Considering my reading preferences for the past few years, there's no way I read MF, and yet here I am, reading about Nate and Emme and infatuated by their dynamic.
This is a really adorable friends to lovers, and added a baby and the chaos after the baby arrived, then I'm sold!
Emme is a romantic and Nate is...NOT!. Emme believed in happy ever after and Nate believed in one night stand. Yeah. There's nothing new about it, but yet, I found this book very interesting, and it's a rare thing these day I found an interesting MF book (no offense to the MF community).
So, actually they're not compatible, but I guess after the baby arrived, Nate started seeing Emme a different perspective and so was Emme.
Even I thought they're moving too fast, I think I'm okay with that, because just like Emme, I am a romantic and I do believe when the time's arrived, they can just 'be'.
And I loved the epilogue.
