rtb review: The One - Lora Leigh

The One The One by Lora Leigh

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

book provided by publisher via

Brenna's love for Jase has grown from a crush to a soul-searing need, a painful hunger . . . and an unrequited ache, because the savagely sexy Texan doesn't feel the same. A bequest and stipulation in his father's will have hardened Jase, it seems. Now she must endure three months of living under his roof. Three torturous, tension-filled months and Brenna will have fulfilled the stipulation; will be free to attempt to regain the heart lost to Jase so long ago.

Since the age of eighteen, Jase has protected Brenna-from himself, as much as anyone else. Living with her proves too rousing even for his iron will. He'll claim what's his, take Brenna in ways he'd previously only dreamed, sink so deeply inside her luscious body he'll never find his way out. And be damned if he'll let her go.

A scorching Texas summer can't compete with blazing lust as Brenna gives in, gives over, gives all that she is to Jase, to the only man she's every loved . . . to the one (Goodreads)

The One is a fast paced, wicked hot short read. Brenna knows the immediate future isn’t going to be the most fun, but she endures what’s coming to make sure Jase gets what she thinks he deserves. She’s been harboring feelings for just about ever and doing what needs doing is extremely hard on her. Jase is about the biggest d-bag when the story starts. He’s horrible to Brenna, but she continues on her path. The chemistry and tension is felt right off the bat with these two, and holy cow is it tense. I felt the story could have been a whole lot longer. Lora Leigh has a way of making a reader want to read on and on forever about her characters and I wanted more.

  1. I really like Lora Leigh's Breed series. Might have to give this book a chance. The cover is nice. Sounds like a good read.
