The One Trilogy Book 2Ali and Flynn were high school sweethearts. Eager to see the world and leave behind their small Georgia hometown, they’d planned for an exciting new life together after they finished school. But on graduation day, only one of them hit the road. Eight years down that road, an unexpected loss brings Flynn home again. He’s a big-shot photo journalist, and he’s made most of his plans reality. But he’s done it alone. Is it too late for his biggest dream to come true? Ali’s spent those years working hard, raising a daughter and helping her brother keep their family farm alive. Thinking about Flynn and what might have been is a pain she tries to avoid. . .even when it’s impossible to forget. Flynn’s return brings back feelings Ali thought were long dead and hopes she’d abandoned. Finding their way back to each other will change them forever, opening old wounds and stirring up memories. Can first love be the one to last forever?
My Thoughts: Tawdra Kandle knows how to weave a story that is both steamy and heartfelt. I cannot even tell you how many times I was brought to tears while I read The First One. I've been waiting for Ali's story ever since I finished reading The Last One, and I was not disappointed.
Ali and Flynn's story shifts between their present and their past. Each memory seems to open up more about their relationship and how it fell apart. Each memory seems to help them build something new. I loved their back and forth as a couple. I loved Ali's daughter. She has a lot of spirit and the moments with all three of them are amazing and perfect. I loved getting to read more about Sam and Meghan from The Last One. The other secondary characters were fun and added a lot to the story.
The First One is such a sweet second chance story. Their are steamy parts, but the don't overshadow the love story that is unfolding. This is a perfect read for anyone who enjoys a great romance. Grab The Last One first, and get caught up on how this trilogy begins. Now I can't wait for the next book! Please write quickly Tawdra!!
