“I’m done, Rey. I can’t be perfect here. I can’t say or do the right thing because that’s always serving someone else. Today, I want to be selfish. Today, I want to be patient. Today, I want to choose the direction my life goes. Today, I make you mine.”
Not The One is the fourth book in the Lover’s in London series, but can be read as a stand-alone. This is the first book that I’ve read by this author and I’m telling you now, this won’t be my last. From the moment I picked up this book, I knew it was going to be special. I had a feeling that it was going to take me on one crazy journey. And I have to tell you, it did not disappoint me. I was captivated from the very first page. I was intrigued by Reyna and wanted to know her story. And the further I got into her story, the more invested I got; the more captivated I was. Something about her just pulled me in. She was so easy to connect with and understand. She was so lost and so broken. I just wanted to see her find some happiness. Reyna’s journey to HEA was anything but easy. She had to really hit rock bottom before she could find the light in the darkness that consumed her.
There is just so much to love about this book; I don’t even know where to begin. So, let me just say that this book was amazing. I loved every broken second of Reyna’s story; from start to finish. Her story had the perfect balance of angst, romance, drama and heart. I loved Reyna and Liam together. Their journey was not easy. The push and pull they had and their connection, really tugged at my heart. I loved how Liam fought for Reyna and tried to make her see what he always knew. My heart ached watching Reyna and Hayden spiral into darkness. Their friendship started off good, but only ended up toxic in the end.
Not The One is a beautiful and honest story.It was so well-written and consuming. I easily got lost in Reyna’s story. I loved how honest and real her character was. Reyna’s story was anything but easy and in fact, she frustrated me at times. But, that’s what made her so real. She wasn’t perfect. She was flawed and frustrating. There was so much more to her that meets the eye. Reyna’s story really dug it’s way into my heart and I know that I won’t be forgetting her story anytime soon.
Amy Daws is a new author to me and I have to say, her writing has completely blown me away. I loved the way that she showed the true meaning of love and friendship, forgiveness and hope; even in the darkest of times. I can not wait to go back and discover the first three books in this series, and I definitely can not wait to read more from this author in the future.
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
That’s not an answer.
LOL…Let me be “frank” when I tell you…it is a distinct possibility. 😉
