Overview

One and Only by Amy Knupp

Drummer Micah Sullivan lost his music and his dreams when his wife died unexpectedly. In the emotional aftermath, he quit his successful country band and pushed away his family and friends. Three years later, he's opened a music shop on Hale Street in Nashville and tells himself he's content trying to make it a hit. What he failed to consider is that success requires connections--including the very ones he turned his back on.

Sloan McGuire is up for a new challenge...never realizing it might lead to heartbreak. When she takes a job as entertainment manager at a bar not known for its music, she doesn't bargain for running into Micah, whose late wife was her best friend. She can tell within minutes that he's still grieving. Out of love for her friend, she attempts to reconnect with the reclusive drummer. Falling for him isn't in the plans, though--not only because he was married to her friend but because she's been second-best before, and she never wants to play that role again.

As Micah starts finding his rhythm, life throws him a different beat. But with a little improvisation and a lot of courage, he just might tap into the one and only connection he needs.

About the Author

Amy Knupp is the author of contemporary romance, a freelance copy editor for Blue Otter Editing, and a freelance technical writer. While the collection of hats she wears sounds a bit scattered and broad, the common thread among all of them (perhaps the little ball on top of each hat) is the written word. She loves words and grammar and meaty, engrossing stories with complex characters.

Amy lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two teenage sons, four cats, and two box turtles. She graduated from the University of Kansas with degrees in French and journalism. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, breaking up cat fights, watching college hoops, and annoying her family by correcting their grammar.

This was a refreshing take on the Contemporary Romance novel, being mostly from a male POV and he being the one that truly needs to open his heart to find his way. Often times when stories lean this way, author's tend to make the male lead overbearing, overtly crass, or otherwise draw a line that your typical CR reader doesn't want to cross. Here, Micah is no doubt a man's man but he was raised right. He may be easy on the eyes (he is) and pleasant to the ears (voice and drumming talent wise), but he also knows how to treat women as more than a trophy or a way to pass the time...in fact, that very insight is what plays into hardening his heart towards a real connection. Sloan is equal parts, beauty, brain, and heart. She's made a name for herself in chosen field, keeps up with friends the best she can, but closer familial connections are harder. She's been hurt by her past, but learned from it and she's not about to let it control her future....funny thing about futures though, the past is in their shadow whether we like it or not. Even though she's stubborn, it's gonna take more than her own backbone to really tell it like it is...too bad we don't know any good guys that love nothing more than great music and the chance to see others at their best. Or do we? It's a musical walk through the streets of Nashville tinged with the loss and heartbreak the music is known for...but colored by hope, forgiveness, and the possibility of second chances. With friends both old and new to guide them on their way, there's nothing this potential friends-to-couple duo can't do...and we're right in the driver's seat watching it all unfold. *copy was received for my honest review

SPOILERS AHEAD!! BEWARE!! 3 stars The One and Only was an ok read for me. I will explain why it was only ok.... Micah lost his wife and has been living like a person just going through the motions since it happened. He left his and and opened a music shop. He is now living the life of a person in constant mourning. Unexpectedly her runs back into Sloan. She was his wife's friend, whom he also became friendly with. He used to look forward to seeing her and talking to her about music. ************************************************************** SPOILER AHEAD!!!!!Then, he realized maybe he was starting to have feelings for Sloan when he was still married to his wife. When his wife dies, he cuts off all ties with her. From this point on, I could not get into this book. I just could not get over this fact. It would have been a fine story if he fell for Sloan years after his wife's death. But to me it felt a little wrong to do it before.
