Publisher's Summary

A gorgeous former Marine with a tortured soul.

The beautiful, compassionate therapist living next door.

A meddlesome grandma determined to get them together.

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?

Love You As You Are

I have been waiting for Stella's story since meeting her in Only You and I was not disappointed! This story had so much heart and emotion. Though this is book 3 in the One and Only series, it can be enjoyed as a stand alone.

Ryan and Stella were broken and in so much pain when they first met. I loved seeing these two slowly come together and heal the other. Yes, there are some missteps and a good amount of push and pull, but you can just feel the connection between them from the start. Once Ryan's emotional baggage is revealed, it's easier to understand why he reacted and responded the way that he did. The best thing about Ryan and Stella was that they each accepted and loved the other exactly as they were. They knew there would be hard times, but they allowed the other to be exactly who they were without judgment or criticism. The epilogue was the perfect way to bring everything full circle and I couldn't have been happier as this series draws to a close.

Grams was such a fun addition to the story and was the perfect balance to the heavier moments in the story. All of her meddling brought a smile to my face and I'm pretty sure I need Gram's recipes for apple pie and meatloaf! ;) Catching up with Emme and Maren was awesome as well, and though this book didn't have as much sisterly banter, I loved seeing how their happily ever afters have progressed. Mack definitely caught my attention in the story and I was so happy to see that it will be his story next to start off Melanie's new series!

Rock Engle and Felicity Munroe both give amazing performances in Only Love. I absolutely loved how Munroe voiced Grams! I was also really impressed by the amount of enthusiasm and emotion that Engle was able to express in his narration as Ryan. He was the perfect amount of heartfelt and sexy. I did have a little trouble sometimes differentiating all the different voices/characters, but overall, I really enjoyed this narrating team and audiobook.

Love Grams!!!

Only Love by Melanie Harlow is such a funny listen. I love how cunning and devious Grams is in this book. Never mess with her plans. Ryan and Stella had no chance once she set her sights on them with her matchmaking scheme. I loved the banter in this book, and thought the imagery was perfect. Both narrators impressed me with how they brought the characters to life.

I really loved this book. . .

Now, in general I love Melanie Harlow books. I love it when the author intermingles characters from other books into the story. It is sheer genius because inevitably I end up having to reread a previous book to remind myself of the characters. I truly believe Grams stole the show. She was amazing and I truly appreciated her meddling.

Overall this was just an amazing read. Thank you Melanie.

No one is safe from devious Grams!

OMG...I floved this book! Grams is a riot...she’s a sneaky little matchmaker...who believes that everything tastes better with booze! Grams is playing matchmaker to her eldest granddaughter, Stella, and her neighbor, retired Marine Ryan. It’s a rocky, but oh so humorous road to love. Fantastic narration team...Especially Grams’ character. Definitely a MUST re-read/listen!

Great Story!

This is the third book in the One and Only Series. Ryan and Stella's story is really sweet, and sexy. Their happy ending is perfect. I love them both. The secondary characters are also beautiful! Grams is so funny! I like Stella's sisters, Emme and Maren, and their wonderful relationship. Rock Engle, and Felicity Munroe did an amazing narration. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

Matchmaker Grandmother

What a sweet story of love, acceptance and a grandmothers matchmaking antics. Once I started listening I couldn’t stop. This third installment of the one and only series brings family together with a peek at characters from other series. Melanie Harlow has done it again with Rock Engle and Felicity Monroe bringing the characters to life with their voices. Enjoy!

Good Story but Narrator not so much

Loved the series. But the male narrator’s voice was too old for the character. It grossed me out and had to read the rest of book and not listen.

Ryan & Stella

What a sweet story of a damaged soul, a woman who thought she wouldn't find love, with a broken intimacy problem from rejection and a meddling Gram. Love, understanding, acceptance and apple pie helped heal their hearts. The heat, and steam that ignited between them was fan worthy. Loved the narrators on this one.
