I was so excited to be back in Sweetbriar Cove, this time with Brooke and Riley. How does a girl put heartbreak behind her and try to find herself again? That is exactly what Brooke is trying to do. After experiencing such heartbreak, she decides to pack it all up and start fresh with no expectations of love. Well, enter Riley and watch the sparks fly!!! I really enjoyed the story as well as the character development. I also enjoyed having past characters in the story as well. This is another one to add to your list to read!

The Only On his book three in the Sweetbriar Cove series. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the whole series! These books are swoony, small town romances that just make you happy. They are feel good beach reads or anytime reads. If you like/love Hallmark or Lifetime movies than this is a perfect series for you. Brooke and Riley are attracted to each other and falling in love. They both have baggage they need to overcome to move forward together. Read The Only One and enjoy the journey they take to find happiness.

3.5 Sunshine Stars I’ve been a Melody Grace fan since the early Beachwood Bay days, loving how she conveys the small town chic in a warm, inviting book world. Grace has a unique hopefulness that underlies every story she writes effortlessly and that makes her books have that ‘welcome home’ vibe, reminding you of everything you missed during the withdrawals from her books. Riley is a sexy, intelligent man with a spirit for adventure and a heart still broken from his best friend’s betrayal. Living a free spirited, easy life between his sail boat and the pub he owns in Cape Cod, and all the no strings sex he has with beautiful tourists, anything that doesn’t mean he has to feel or risk getting hurt again. Then it happens. One night that changes his life forever. Brooke ran from her life in Chicago after a bad breakup and a betrayal she never saw coming, four months later she’s living in a small seaside town in Cape Cod, New England, running a quaint, picturesque hotel that reminded me of the Dragonfly in Gilmore Girls. Brooke is a workaholic, her dedication and ambition for the hotel the perfect distraction from the pain Archer caused. The guilt and pain she carries, the trust they violated, Brooke believes that giving other couples the perfect wedding for their happily ever after is her redemption. Her self loathing broke my heart, the angst level being intense to say the least. Then one day her best friend sets her up on a blind date. A disastrous, cringeworthy blind date that will have you wishing she was real so you could do the ‘emergency phone call’ conversation to get her the heck away. It’s that bad. Then she catches his eye. The one guy that makes her want to say screw her new rules on smooth talking guys and dating because her ‘Adonis’ would always be worth breaking those rules for. But can the pain of their past be laid to rest? Can they learn to trust another person again? And more than that, can they learn to trust themselves again? Or will their broken hearts stay broken and alone?

Favorite Quotes: …he’d been punctual—already waiting at a table in the corner when she’d arrived. Sure, it was because he liked to clean everything down with the antiseptic wipes he carried in a little plastic pouch, but hygiene was always a good thing. Right? She was a smart woman, she had a college degree and great references, she could program her universal remote and tell when her friends started dating low-life, no-good cheaters. But it turned out, when a low-life, no-good cheater came along to sweep her off her feet, Brooke was swept right up in all his pretty lies. I thought leaving everything behind would help, but sometimes baggage has a way of following you around. Only child. I’m their sole source of disappointment. Real men don’t mope…. We brood. In a manly, strong fashion. My Review: I continue my girl crush on Melody Grace and her adorable and delightful Sweetbriar Cove series. I enjoy her crisp and amusing writing style, delectable characters, and a collection of recognizable and interesting people with realistic yet unusual problems. I was drawn to this enticing couple and enjoyed watching their easy friendship evolve into an incredibly steamy relationship, as each grew in confidence with themselves and each other. The characters were smart, witty, and cleverly written, and provided a fun and enjoyable read. I will be eagerly awaiting the next book, which is scheduled for release in November.

4.5 Second Chance Stars! “It’s not rational.” “There’s no pro/con list, or reasons why. It’s elemental. Just simple chemistry in the end.” “What was it about this woman that sent him from zero to totally distracted in just one breath?” Told from dual points of view, The Only One is the third book in the Sweetbriar Cove Series and it follows the story of Riley and Brooke. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but Riley’s story is one that I have been waiting impatiently for. And boy does Riley’s story ever deliver!! On the surface, Riley is this chill, laid back ladies man. He lives his life as a bartender and doesn’t have a care in the world, other than who he’s taking home the next night. Everything changes the moment Riley meets Brooke. He recognizes the need for a fresh start and the need to blow off some steam. And if anyone can show Brooke a good time, it’s Riley….After having her heart destroyed, Brooke wants nothing more than to start over and focus on her career. She doesn’t have any room for distractions and is determined to stay away from all men. However, she wasn’t counting on Riley. The connection and chemistry between the two of them is knock you on your a** intense and no matter how hard Brooke tries to fight, she can’t resist the pull of Riley… The Only One was just the read I was looking for. It gave me everything and I mean everything that I wanted and needed in a Melody Grace novel. The characters were fun and easy to relate to. You couldn’t help but want to know more about these characters and find out what makes them tick. I loved the ease and flow of Riley and Brooke’s relationship. The push and pull between the two of them was very palpable and the tension just burned up the pages. I loved Riley’s determination and enjoyed seeing him fall and try to woo Brooke. Brooke was very easy to connect with and was the type of girl that you couldn’t help but root for. I loved seeing Riley and Brooke together. Aside from their amazing chemistry, their relationship just felt really easy and real. I just couldn’t get enough of these two together. The Only One is a fantastic addition to the Sweetbriar Cove Series. It was everything I wanted in a second chance romance with the perfect mix of romance, drama and sexy good times. The Only One is the perfect blend of sweet, and sexy with the alpha goodness I have come to know and love from this author. This is the perfect summer read to spend the day getting lost in.
