I read "In Love with a Younger Man" in one day back in December and was so happy to find out that there was a sequel coming soon.

Olena & Jason - great story with a strong mix of plot/characters that puts a great spin on the reality show world.

What is it that makes a professional woman who dislikes reality TV because of the way it portrays woman end up on a season of The One? (as the saying goes be careful when saying never)

After Olena walks away from her lucrative job as the highest paid Senior Key Accounts manager at Lutel Industries in the country, she lands a spot as the bachelorette of a reality show called The One. The season premier airs on Valentine's Day.
There's several things that make this show different from the other reality shows on TV; The bachelorette is black, and forty-three and it's her plan not to allow the producers to make woman look stupid and to walk away with a book deal? But can Olena walk away with a book deal in one hand and a bachelor in the other?

This relatable relationship novel puts readers behind the scenes of reality TV show The One showcasing what real love and scripted love can look like. The story is told from the point of view of Jason Nix and Olena Day. As Olena travel to 10 different romantic cities and meet 10 bachelors the readers are on the date right along with them. As we draw near to the final show Godiva the shows executive tells Olena who they don't want her to choose, but will Olena follow the script or her heart?
What is new and what I thoroughly enjoyed was the drama free episodes of The One. By the end the reader knows each character well and will be longing to visit them again in future books.
Ms. Robison has a fantastic talent for writing good stories that deserves space on every reader's shelf. It is said that The One continues Olena' story from In Love with a Younger Man. One doesn't have to read In Love with a Younger Man to read The One.

Format: Paperback
I couldn't wait to read the sequel to ILWAYM, but I was very disappointed with this book. This book was long and drawn out. I liked the details about the sites she visited when she went to the different destinations, and the insight into reality shows was good. The end left you hanging, but if you read "When I Get Where I'm Going" it reveals that Olena married Jason and they had twins. "When I get Where I'm going" was a better than this book. It revealed more about Jason & Olena than the sequel did, and it was written two year earlier. I guess I'll have to reread it to find out what happened with Olena's career. This book probably would have been more enjoyable if she took Jason & Olena out and used new characters.

I was truly disappointed with this being a sequel since the first book was marvelous. This should have been another book with different characters and then maybe it would have been more enjoyable. However, the book gets two stars because I believe some of the things that were written about how "reality" shows are made.
