Review: The Only One for Her by Carlie Sexton
When is a heart too broken to fix?
Just days before his wedding, handsome, successful entrepreneur, Trace Michaels, finds out his love wasn’t enough. With a broken heart, Trace lands in Maui, hoping to find solace in the beautiful island. What he finds is beauty, but in the form of an alluring, grieving woman. One he feels an instant and inescapable attraction to.
Young widow, Lindy Bernard, had her heart broken when her husband died. In Maui to reluctantly close a chapter in her life, she suddenly finds herself in the arms of a drop-dead, gorgeous Adonis. After his relentless pursuit, Lindy and Trace begin to find healing…only to have that endangered by a secret threatening to tear them apart.
All is not what it seems in Trace’s company, and it seems one woman has set out to ruin him. Can he juggle the odious plots against him while chasing the woman of his heart? Will she wait or are some hearts too broken to be fixed?
I couldn’t get the image of Lindy out of my mind—her long, golden hair waving in the breeze. The black halter dress, which showed off her gorgeous form. When I grabbed her to stop her from falling in, the feel of her body against mine had begun something to me. I felt the need to protect her. A desire to know her. It was the strangest thing that had ever happened to me. I hadn’t felt overpowered with emotion like this before. It wasn’t just physical attraction. Something about Lindy just called to me. My heart had gone out to her and when she walked away, she somehow took my heart with her., I wanted to know everything about her, but I’d only gotten her name.
Starting The Only One for Her, I was excited to see where Carlie Sexton went with this new book. I surely did not expect what I read. This book had a lot going on. With every turn when I thought I knew what was going to happen or who was doing what … I was wrong every time.
Poor Lindy and the life she had to go through. I couldn’t imagine dealing with all she did. I am so thankful that Dane was there for at least most of it. I just wish we could have gotten more of Dane in this book. Before everything happened. Trace is drop dead gorgeous, extremely ripped, sweet as sugar, sexy as sin and smart as hell. The total freaking package in that man. He had me swooning for him from the beginning. The crap he dealt with sucked too but thankfully Lindy was there to help with some of it. These two make a really cute couple. This would be that couple you see out and think “Ugh they make me sick!” They are that cute together. Lol.
This is a great read and I had fun watching Lindy find herself again and seeing these two come together. Oh and let me say I HATE Randy. Lol. If you haven’t read a Carlie Sexton book this is a great one to start with.
