A gorgeous former Marine with a tortured soul.
The beautiful, compassionate therapist living next door.
A meddlesome grandma determined to get them together.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Melanie Harlow comes an all new standalone romance that will make you believe in the redemptive power of love.

I was expecting a proposal on my birthday, and I got dumped instead.

How could I have been so clueless?

Grams knew exactly how to distract me.

The “cute boy next door” who’s been helping her with yard work clearly needs a little therapy. Who better to call than her newly single therapist granddaughter?

She even fakes dementia to get me to visit, and now that I’m here she’s doing everything in her power to throw us together.

Not that I’m complaining. Ryan is the sexiest man I’ve ever met–I mean the full package, from the chiseled jaw to the massive shoulders to the rippling abs. (And yes, his package is full, and he knows exactly how to deliver it.) He makes me want to get out of my head and follow my heart. He makes me want to take chances I never thought I’d take.

He also makes me want to take my clothes off. A lot.

But he’s moody and challenging–one minute he’s an open book, and the next he’s completely closed off. He holds me like he’ll never let go, but insists he wants to be alone.

Some wounds are so deep, only love can heal them.

How can I convince him to let me try?

 

review

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I am so obsessed with Melanie Harlow and everything she writes. Every time she release a book, I know I will be getting romance, fun banter, sizzling chemistry and a little heartbreak. Yet each plot is different and keeps me wanting more.

Only Love is no different.

Stella Devine is having a bad night. Though, that is probably an understatement. It’s her 33rd birthday and instead of getting a proposal, she gets dumped. Devastated, she decides to go visit her Grandmother, who is experiencing some health issues.

Or so her Grandma says.

While she’s there, she meets Ryan, the man who lives next door to her Grandma and often helps her with things around her house. Ryan is utterly attractive and even more complicated.

Ryan is an ex-marine, who is having trouble adjusting to life back home. He has walls up a mile high, and doesn’t let himself feel much of anything.

Yet from the second Stella and Ryan meet, there is just something between them, which even Ryan has trouble denying. It’s a instant connection, an easy but unlikely friendship and a nearly unattainable attraction.

Everything is right there for them, but Ryan doesn’t make it so easy. Sometimes he is darn right frustrating. Yet, the closer the two get, you see a softer side of him that is completely swoon worthy. Sigh.

Only You will seriously put you on an emotional roller-coaster. You’ll love it even when it makes you wanna scream, and after all the ups and downs you’ll have a smile on your face and want to do it again.

There is also little snippets from the Grandma that are equally adorable and hilarious.

This book can be read as a standalone, but it does give updates on Stella’s sisters, from Only You and Only Him– both those are incrediable reads as well!
