REVIEW: The One Real Thing by Samantha Young


You know how sometimes you start a book and it's like you're sinking into the most comfortable couch--it's that feeling of warmth and ease that just feels right and makes you want to sit and read for a while? Yeahhhh, that's what I felt when I started The One Real Thing. I immediately sunk into the novel, began feeling curious about Jessica and her story, and was very curious about how finding the person who needed to read those letters would go. Somewhere along the way the letter went on the back burner and I had more of a vested interest in Jessica and Cooper and all the folks on the boardwalk.

This new book by Samantha Young had a little bit of everything--insta-lust/love, insta-best friends, some bad guys, some intrigue, and a ton of fantastic secondary characters--ones I'm hoping we'll get to know more about in future books. This is definitely a great book to have on the weekend--imagine yourself curled up next to a fireplace with a hot cup of something next to you and nothing but time to read this book. Sounds good doesn't it?

Welcome to Hartwell, a quiet seaside escape where uncovering old secrets could lead one woman to discover the meaning of a love that lasts…
While Doctor Jessica Huntington engages with the inmates at the women’s correctional facility where she works, she’s always careful to avoid emotional attachments in her personal life.  Loss and betrayal taught her that lesson long ago. But when she comes across a set of old love letters in the prison’s library and visits the picturesque town of Hartwell to deliver them to their intended recipient, she finds herself unable to resist the town’s charm—and her attraction to the sexy owner of a local bar proves equally hard to deny.
Since his divorce from his unfaithful ex-wife, Cooper Lawson has focused on what really matters: his family and the boardwalk pub they’ve owned for generations.  But the first time Jessica steps into his bar, Cooper is beyond tempted to risk his heart on her.
Yet as their attraction grows hotter and Jessica remains stubbornly closed off, he begins to realize it will take more than just passion to convince her there’s only one real thing in life worth fighting for….
