| Synopsis |

The latest sparkling romance from the award-winning author of French Kissing.
When Lucy Ashford lands a top job at a leading theatrical agency in London, work mixes with pleasure, as she literally falls into the arms of Hollywood heartthrob Daniel Miller.

Handsome, charming and irresistible, Daniel is just what unlucky-in-love Lucy needs, and she is quickly drawn into his glittering celebrity lifestyle. But can she tame the A-list bad boy or is she just one more girl in Daniels long line of conquests?

And then there’s up-and-coming actor Owen Somers, fiercely talented but as yet uncast in a starring role. After she takes him onto the agency’s books, Owen and Lucy’s friendship slowly grows. If she looks closely, Lucy’s leading man might be right before her very eyes…

| Book Review | 

Lucy Ashford is the fabulous main character in The One that I Want and she is truly awesome. The kind of gal you want as your best friend. We join her as she is finding her feet in life. By chance, an old school friend sets her on a new path which takes her life in a new and exciting direction.

The storyline is well written with a colourful supporting cast of characters. I enjoy when you learn something from a book and The One that I Want did not disappoint. The book compacts a plethora of topics but it doesn’t feel rushed in any way. I didn’t want it to end, I really enjoyed the dynamics of the book and how Lynne Shelby brought it all together perfectly and realistically at the end.

I reviewed a kindle copy but having looked online at the cover, it fits perfectly and the title ties in nicely.

A fun and engaging read from page one, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up anything Lynne Shelby releases.
