I have a great novella to share with you today. It is the beginning of a new series for the fantastic Gena Showalter. The One You Want is a quick reading contemporary romance. This is the start of a new addiction with one of my favorite authors, Gena Showalter. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.
In small-town Oklahoma, reputation is everything, and Kenna Starr will do anything to overcome hers. The supposed bad girl is determined to walk the straight and narrow, a seemingly impossible task when Tall, Dark and Sexy shows up…
Rich and powerful, Dane Michaelson is every woman’s dream. When he returns to Strawberry Valley after a sixteen-year absence, he is unprepared for the redheaded girl he’s never been able to forget. She’s all woman now—and he’s never wanted anyone more. But to have her, he’ll have to break through her defenses… and surrender his own.
Kenna has born a past that has not been hers all together. She must walk a thin line until the impossibly handsome and sexy Dane returns. Though they have not seen each other for many years the past between them is vast but the feelings they have had has never dissipated. Can Dane help Kenna knock down her walls or will he just create more?
I utterly fell in love with Kenna and Dane. They were intense in both their passion for each other and their protection of their past. This really made this an intriguing story. The almost impossible obstacles that both bring into the relationship adds an awesome sense of drama that draws the reader in. Gena Showalter uses her impeccable talent to weave a new set of drama, love and passion. I know I cannot wait to get my hands on her next book in this series. I know it will be steamy, sexy and full of drama.
