She got a second chance at life.
Will she take a second chance at love?
Kincaid Breslin wasn't supposed to survive that fateful night at Long Acre when so many died, including her boyfriend—but survive she did. She doesn't know why she got that chance, but now she takes life by the horns and doesn't let anybody stand in her way
Ashton Isaacs was her best friend when disaster struck all those years ago, but he chose to run as far away as he could. Now fate has brought him back to town, and Ash doesn't know how to cope with his feelings for Kincaid and his grief over their lost friendship. For Ash has been carrying secrets, and he knows that once Kincaid learns the truth, he'll lose any chance he might have had with the only woman he's ever loved.
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I don’t have anything to say about the writing, really. No complaints at all, it was perfectly okay but nothing that stood out to me immensely either.
In general, I had no problems with any characters or their relationships (I did love the relationship of the main couple with the old couple). Since I never read the previous books, that surely helped me not to really care about them. I didn’t really connect with them in the book.
It is a second chance romance, sort of… so that gives it points because I love that trope. It is a best friends to lovers as well, which gives it some more points because I also love that trope.
However, this plot line where one of them is still in love with a previous dead Significant Other is really not my cup of tea. So during the whole book I was just annoyed and frustrated with that. While I appreciated the fact that not everything was as it seemed and they did like each other back then… honestly, that revelation came a bit too late for me. So, it did help me enjoy the book more at the end of the day but my frustration with the book remained.
Their interactions were sweet and I did like their relationship either way. I was definitely rooting for them.
This book had a very delicate subject on the plot, which is a school shooting. It’s all about moving on, together, as a community (a town), from something like that, throughout the years. The toll it takes on the people there and how these individuals heal together with time, taking a second chance in life. I liked how it dealt with that and how it approached the topic.
If you wouldn’t mind the things I couldn’t enjoy in “The One for you” and are up for a sweet romance between two people who were each other’s worlds and were separated by tragedy, I definitely recommend to give it a try.
Asis is a Mexican girl whose life changed at the age of six when her father read the first chapter of Harry Potter to her. Ever since that night, the book world sucked her in and she’s never been seen amongst mortals again.
I am a professional Translator-Interpreter, currently working as an ESL teacher at an elementary school and an ELE teacher online. I have a passion for languages and an imagination that works 24/7. I am a romantic at heart, and my favorite genre is fantasy.
I’m incredibly obsessive towards anything I like, I can’t just like something, I always end up obsessed with it.
I love Scotland, musical theatre, Taylor Swift, beautiful places, Critical Role, and I love stories in all formats.
Stories are a refuge for me and they’ve always been, they are also the one thing that makes me feel, interact and truly live.
I’m not the most social person but when it comes to fangirling… whenever, wherever… I’m your girl. Hit me up!
