The One (The Halo Series Book 2) by Kimberly Knight

The One (The Halo Series Book 2) by Kimberly Knight is a story about friendship, trials, loss, strength, and love.

Synopsis:

Life isn’t always fairy tales and rainbows …

Avery Scott is a hopeless romantic, the complete opposite of his best friend, Easton. For most of his life, he’s been searching for that someone special to spend the rest of his life with. The problem is, he’s had nothing but bad first dates with crazy women he’s met online or at his bar, Halo. When he hears about a singles cruise, his plan is to meet a lot of single women, to test the waters, but when a blonde consumes his every thought, he throws that plan overboard.

Nicole Chambers has had her fair share of heartbreaks. She’s tired of being single or dating guys with girlfriends. She wants to find The One. So she convinces her best friend, Brooke, to go on a singles cruise with her. What she doesn’t expect is to fall head over heels with the first guy she meets.

But what happens once the cruise ends?

Life isn’t always fairy tales and rainbows …

And meeting The One doesn’t always mean finding your happily ever after. Because life can give you a precious gift and then dangle it in front of your eyes and you’re left questioning where to go with your future—or if you even have one.

Ceej’s Review:

The One is a story about friendship, trials, loss, strength, and love.  This is a story about finding The One and holding tight, no matter what happens.

Nicole…at first, I wasn’t sure if I would like her.  Until I saw how she was with her best friend, Brooke.  She scored big points with me for everything she did for her.  When it came to her relationship with Avery, I admit it felt more like I was being told about her feelings for him rather than feeling it.  Maybe it was due to the fact that she was bombarded by difficult and surprising circumstances.  However, I did sympathize with her when she had joy dangled in front of her then had it snatched away.  I wanted to give her the biggest of hugs.

Avery…now that’s a man that loved his woman.  I felt it.  Honestly, his POV saved this book for me.  Everything he felt, I felt.  His elation, his desperation, his determination, his devastation, his pain, his joy, I felt it all.  I loved Avery.  This is the kind of devotion that I believe everyone deserves in their lives.
