Bored and stifled, she looks for ways to break three. A casual relationship with her next door neighbour becomes her dirty little secret. Elliot isn’t like the boys Rebecca grew up with. He bounces from job to job, and is a part time musician. Her father’s worst nightmare.
Rebecca longs to find true love like her friend, Olivia, has. Her last attempt at grown-up romance was blown apart by secrets, and Elliot has secrets of his own. Despite everything, could Elliot be the right one?
***I received this eARC as a gift in exchange for an honest review via The Hype PR.
The Right One is a sweet, charming romance. Full of passion and adorable moments, you’ll sigh, perfectly content to swoon.
- Rebecca is a sweetheart with a past full of heartbreak. From her recent break up to the desperate desire to please her father and frustration with an alcoholic mother, Rebecca is terrified of becoming her parents. After the ridiculously comical break up with her boyfriend of several years, Rebecca is through with pleasing everyone else, she’s finally decided to have “me” time. Funny, endearing, and with just enough sass, Rebecca is made of laughter and someone embarrassing situations that will leave you blushing and giggling.
- What I absolutely adored about these characters is that there was no sugar-coating, they’re blunt, sometimes crude, and ask the hard questions. The story is honest, real, and could happen to anyone. The fact that it’s so believable made for a more powerful read and characters that anyone can relate to.
- Elliot is sugar-sweet and a bit naughty. He flirts, he’s playful, and he does so many thoughtful things that will make you fall in love with him. He’s perfect. Sure, he might not have his whole life figured out but he’s attentive, charming, and insatiable. 😉 Elliot is willing to go to any lengths to make Rebecca smile and those bacon sandwiches, definitely trying those. ❤
- When Elliot’s secrets come out, Rebecca’s heart opens up. It’s truly a beautiful, heart-warming, and intensely emotional evolution to read. Rebecca learns so much about herself and grows up into this fantastic, incredibly kind woman, even better than she was before. Together, Rebecca and Elliot are magic.
- Some sections dragged where nothing much happened but sexual encounters. Scenes vary from graphic to brief and cut off.
- Rebecca’s relationship with most of her friends was awkward and even she admits to them being sort of cold and self-absorbed. Other than her past, there’s no real connection or warmth between them. There are momentary sparks that fizzle out quickly.
- Drama was resolved extremely quickly and with no protest. The bizarre nature of some of the relationship conflicts seemed like they would spur a full of meltdown at times and…nothing. No one objected, everyone was understanding. With all the emotions running rampant and pregnant people, that there wasn’t a shouting match was shocking and a little disappointing.
