Publisher's Summary

Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall - a different one every time - and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after. 

As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.

As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.

We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit - he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.

But it’s a mistake. 

Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us. 

I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.

I want to be the one he asks to stay.

Perfect neighbors to lovers story

Perfect friends to lovers story. More like neighbors to lovers story. I enjoyed every moment of it. Emme is a hopeless romantic events planner. Nate is a anti love divorce lawyer. They are totally opposites but share a love for Bond movies. Nate's world is turned upside down one night. A baby is left on his door step. His baby he didn't know about. Now his life is going not the direction he had planned. Emme is a good friend and is there to help him. Soon their bond changes from friendship to what could be love. But Nate fights it and Emme starts to think that maybe he is just another heart breaker to add to her list of bad decisions. They both have to decide what they truly want and need in their lives.
I loved loved this story. Especially hearing it as an audio book. I can't get over how perfect these narrators were. I felt every word they said. I got so lost in this story. This was my first read from this author and I can't wait to read more of her books. She had a way of reeling me in from the start. The book had it all: friendship, love, humor, heartbreak, frustrating moments, drama and many surprise moments. I highly suggest this book!

Sexy Single Dad? Yes Please! Loved it!

Sexy Single Dad? Yes Please! Witty Banter? Oh Yeah! Super hot and steamy passion? Definitely! Melanie Harlow's new Friends-to-Lovers romance will capture your heart and never let go!
Emme had a way of picking the wrong men, but that didn't stop her from believing in love and soul mates. She is funny, feisty, and slightly prone to disaster. She gets herself into some hilarious situations only to be rescued by Nate, her sexy neighbor. Nate doesn't believe in love, and finds it hard to trust. But he likes that Emme needs him, even if she doesn't want to. The tables get turned when he finds out he is a father when his baby girl is left on his doorstep for him to take care of. Now he needs to depend on Emme for help. His initial reaction to his daughter is priceless! Nate and Emme make a great team and are scorching hot together. Nate is so swoony as he navigates being a new father and learning to love. There were so many comical moments but several emotional moments as well. I loved everything about this story from the charming characters to the hilarious and steamy story. I am also a huge fan of the grand gesture and this had a very sweet and romantic one! It was perfect!
I was totally lost in this story due to the amazing talents of Stephen Dexter, and Lauren Ezzo! They were so perfectly cast as Nate and Emme, and added so much personality to this story. Their ability to convey such emotion from the dramatic to the funny, from panic to passion, and all the sweet moments in between was superb. Dexter especially blew me away with his pacing, making my heart race when Nate struggled with his emotions and learning to open himself up to love. I love the way Ezzo portrayed Emme's frustration, pain, and growth into a confident woman and lover.
I loved every minute of this audio and can't wait for Emme's sisters stories next!

"Div. Attorney & Wedding Planner Neighbors Clash"

Only You, One and Only Book 1 is a ravishing prose. The synopsis of this novel reeled me in. From the first word till the very end I was vigilantly tuned in. I absolutely fell in love with Nate Pearson as he was sweet and sexy all rolled into one scrumptious package. I so adored Emme and her sweet personality. Supporting character's were campy & gaiety. The witty banter between Nate & Emme was so hilarious. A writing style that is crisp, innovative, and piquant. A fictitious novel about friendships growing & adjusting to anew routine.
Written & narated in dual pov which is my favourite. Narrator Stephen Dexter did a phenomenal job of showcasing the blistered sentiments of Nate Pearson. I loved listening to Lauren Ezzo's voice as it was so sweet. These narrators brought this fabulous romance to life. I felt like I was right there with them. Together these two narrators make a striking duet. These narrators were perfect.
One of my absolute favourite new books. A definite relisten as I hated to hear it end. I so would love to listen to the other books in this new exhilarating series.

sweet and hilarious friends to lovers story

Divorce attorney, Nate, loves his life...his very single, no commitments, life...thank you very much! He also loves his bachelor pad and his neighbor, wedding planner Emme...well, he loves her like a sister. Emme is a bit of a clutz and Nate lovingly calls her 'Calamity'. Their witty banter is hilarious...I've actually stolen some of their lines...lol. When fatherhood is suddenly thrust on Nate, he begs Emme for help and so begins a journey for these two, getting to see each other in a different light. Will commitment-phobe Nate realize in time that he wants more from Emme than friendship? How will his new status as a father affect Nate's future plans? This was a great story of friendship and learning to adjust to a new normal. Definitely a re-read/listen.
