Now, a Navy wife with two children of her own, she still loves being creative and most of all translating her stories into novels. E.M. Abel can often be found with her headphones on jamming out to music, practicing yoga and searching for her Zen or exploring the latest place she’s calling home. No matter what she's doing in her life, she's always sure to do it her way.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Title: You're The Only One
Author: E.M. Abel
I can't believe i almost missed this book. E.M. Abel is a first time author for me and i don't think i could have been any more impressed than if someone had told me that i was a fool for overlooking this novel. The tale of friends to lovers isn't one that i'm a stranger to - in fact i've read many books with the same underlining theme, but what makes them special is how the author makes her characters come to life and the story that follows them through their journey. So when lifelong friends Dillon and Sky pack up their bags and go to New York City to make their dreams come true, i was all in with them. Wanting to see just where they'd go and how they'd make it - their dreams are so different from one another that i can't help but wonder just how they plan to make it. It wasn't easy, that much i can tell you, but if there's one thing that was a constant during their journey, it's that the relationship that exists between these two was always present, growing stronger, but not without their ups and downs.
It's a gripping tale that will make you think twice about ever saying that the opposite sex can't be friends (yes, i know that more often than not that's not the case, but still). It's a story that will make you think twice about taking things for granted, but most of all, it will simply steal your heart. The characters were simply them - no fakeness, no exaggerating and no over pompous attitudes to make them feel bigger than they actually are. E.M. Abel created a story that i could relate to on many levels and for that i'll be looking forward to reading more from her in the future, to see just how her next stories will impact me and how she'll make them shine.
