Review 'The One Real Thing' by Samantha Young 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....

My Review:

Last year I read ‘Hero’ by Samantha Young and completely fell in love with that book and the authors writing. So when I was asked to review ‘The One Real Thing’ I was super excited and couldn’t wait to start reading. After seeing that beautiful looking cover I was even more enthusiastic to start reading.

‘The One Real Thing’ is the first book in a new series set in the beautiful and picturesque town of Hartwell. In ‘The One Real Thing’ we meet Doctor Jessica Huntington. Jessica spend her whole life working hard to become a doctor and to forget about her past. When Jessica finds a couple of love letters written by a woman years ago, she can’t stop thinking about getting those letters to the man they were written to. Before she really knows what she’s doing Jessica is on her way to Hartwell to spend her vacation in the little town and get those letters to the right person. But what Jessica didn’t expect was to fall in love with the little town and the people that life there.

I really love books about little towns and the people who live there. Small town life just always sounds so charming to me. So when I started reading this book and soon found out how charming the little town of Hartwell was, I was hooked. And even better the main characters Jessica and Cooper really made me love this book from the beginning till the end.

Jessica is this sweet and kind person, who realizes she really isn’t happy with the live she’s living.  Unfortunately for her she has kept this big secret for a long time, and she just doesn’t really know how to open up to people. When she meets all these kind, open and loving people she soon finds a place she wants to call her home. Especially after she meets Cooper.

There was some serious chemistry between Jessica and Cooper and I loved reading their story. I just couldn’t stop reading this book from the moment I started. I especially loved reading those moments between Jessica and Cooper. There were a lot of sexy and sweet moments between them which made this book totally one of my new favorites.

‘The One Real Thing’ is a great, romantic and beautiful story. And I just really love the little town of Hartwell. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series about Bailey, the kind and beautiful Inn owner. March is just too far away!
