    I have enjoyed Viv Daniels┬┐ alter-ego Diana Peterfreund┬┐s books,

    I have enjoyed Viv Daniels’ alter-ego Diana Peterfreund’s books, particularly the Secret Society series, which we would now classify as New Adult. Because of this I was more than happy to give One & Only a shot, and I’m glad it I did. It was a nice, contemporary romance novel that made me sigh, and swoon, and because it’s me, rage. I did devour this book, I found it to be a quick enjoyable read and I was even upset to find the second novel not out yet, because I enjoyed the Canton world.

    What Daniels’ did was not shy away from real problems that students in college face. From backstabbing classmates, to frat parties, and carrying a full course load and still trying to figure out how to make time to study are all covered in One & Only. One and Only is the story of Tess, a good student, who is the product of a rich man and his mistress. This is important, because Tess is never allowed to acknowledge her father. Ever. He also uses this to guilt her mother and her by giving them money. Because of this power she doesn’t go to her dream school, Canton, but the local state school which doesn’t have a solid science program, but it makes her father happy.

    Until two years later she’s had enough and her mentor at the state school, helps her not only go to Canton, but also to pay for it with scholarships. Between that push and a part-time job, she transfers over to Canton and is happier than she ever imagined she could be. Until she sees Dylan, the cute boy she fell in love with two years ago that summer between high school and college, when they met at a Summer Science program. What Tess (and Dylan) weren’t expecting were the sparks to still be here, or Dylan to be dating Tess’ half-sister that doesn’t know she still exists.

    Thanks to a big project the two are brought back together and sparks continue to fly off the page. The two not only fight them, but fight with the fact that Dylan has a girlfriend, both do not want to cheat and respect that. Dylan also knows that Tess is hiding things from him, but respects her current boundaries. It does become hard when the truth comes out and both explode, it is beautiful how they find themselves back with each other.
