+++I received this book as a gift
The Right One is a sweet, charming romance. Full of passion and adorable moments, you’ll sigh, perfectly content to swoon.
Rebecca is a sweetheart with a past full of heartbreak. From her recent break up to the desperate desire to please her father and frustration with an alcoholic mother, Rebecca is terrified of becoming her parents. After the ridiculously comical break up with her boyfriend of several years, Rebecca is through with pleasing everyone else, she’s finally decided to have “me” time. Funny, endearing, and with just enough sass, Rebecca is made of laughter and someone embarrassing situations that will leave you blushing and giggling.
What I absolutely adored about these characters is that there was no sugar-coating, they’re blunt, sometimes crude, and ask the hard questions.
The story is honest, real, and could happen to anyone. The fact that it’s so believable made for a more powerful read and characters that anyone can relate to.
Elliot is sugar-sweet and a bit naughty. He flirts, he’s playful, and he does so many thoughtful things that will make you fall in love with him. He’s perfect. Sure, he might not have his whole life figured out but he’s attentive, charming, and insatiable. ;) Elliot is willing to go to any lengths to make Rebecca smile and those bacon sandwiches, definitely trying those. <3
When Elliot’s secrets come out, Rebecca’s heart opens up. It’s truly a beautiful, heart-warming, and intensely emotional evolution to read. Rebecca learns so much about herself and grows up into this fantastic, incredibly kind woman, even better than she was before. Together, Rebecca and Elliot are magic.
Some sections dragged where nothing much happened but sexual encounters. Scenes vary from graphic to brief and cut off.
Rebecca’s relationship with most of her friends was awkward and even she admits to them being sort of cold and self-absorbed. Other than her past, there’s no real connection or warmth between them. There are momentary sparks that fizzle out quickly.
Drama was resolved extremely quickly and with no protest. The bizarre nature of some of the relationship conflicts seemed like they would spur a full of meltdown at times and…nothing. No one objected, everyone was understanding. With all the emotions running rampant and pregnant people, that there wasn’t a shouting match was shocking and a little disappointing.
After catching her boyfriend cheating on her, Rebecca swears off men. She still has the occasional hook up, but she definitely is not in the market for a relationship. Then she meets Elliot. Elliot is the grandson of her next door neighbor and he has come to live with his grandmother to help her out. The two strike up a friendship and then decide that the whole "friends with benefits" relationship could work for them.
And it does work for them. The two of them get along really well and they are more than compatible in the bedroom. Elliot is a big sweetheart and you can tell that he really cares for Rebecca. Rebecca still her awesome self and she really does like Elliot. Of course both of them start to feel more for each other, but they keep those feelings locked down.
Just when things seem to she shifting between Rebecca and Elliot, he has to go away for work. It is obvious they miss being around each other. They talk as much as they can and when they can't talk, they text. You watch these two fall in love with each and it is a wonderful thing.
But then something really unexpected happens and the subsequent events are what made me love this book so much. I won't give anything away, but I will say this: If I didn't already like Rebecca going into this book, her big ol' heart and capacity to love would have clinched it for me. She takes everything thrown at her in stride and quickly falls into a role she thought she would never take on. Rebecca is amazing.
Then there is Elliot. What a guy. He's sweet, caring, funny, sexy, thoughtful, understanding and made me swoon numerous times throughout the book. He too takes on a role that he was not prepared for, but manages to take on pretty easily. Again, I don't want to give any details, but I will say that it made me want to crawl into the book, take out Rebecca (#sorrynotsorry) and keep him for myself.
I really can't recommend this book enough. We get a little bit of Olivia and Logan in this one as well as some of Rebecca's friends that we have not met before. We also meet her father and get to see her relationship with him not only grow, but also turn into something she definitely did not see coming. Rebecca deals with a lot in this book and with the support of her friends and the newly discovered relationship with her father, she comes out on top.
