“Warm and funny, the first book in the Bachelor Brotherhood series reads like a great Hollywood rom-com.” –iBooks Best Books of June
Never say never…Romance isn't an option for Holly Greenwood. With her wedding planner career on the line she needs to stay focused, and that means pleasing her demanding boss, not getting distracted by her mind-alteringly hot neighbor…
Ex-Marine Kevin Vandemeer craves normalcy. Instead, he has a broken-down old house in need of a match and some gasoline, a meddling family, and the uncanny ability to attract the world's craziest women. At least that last one he can fix: he and his buddies have made a pact to swear off women, and this includes his sweetly sexy new neighbor.
After one hot night that looks a whole lot like a disaster in the light of day, Kevin and Holly are about to learn that true love doesn't play by the rules…
"If you want your fairy tale , maybe you should come down from the tower instead of waiting for your prince to find you."
There was something about 'Only You' that made me feel all warm and giddy inside. I'm a romantic person but I don't enjoy reading about insta-love. I feel like this book had insta-love but the H/h spent the entirety of the book trying to fight it off. I think that was its saving grace for me. The angst. The forbidden. And of course the adoration that the hero so clearly showed for our heroine.
Holly is a wedding planner to a woman who treats her like she's scum. That may be a little excessive...Nicole actually treats Holly like she's an assistant instead of giving her credit for the wedding she's already planned and had success in. What I liked about Holly is how driven and ambitious she was. But I mostly liked how she's one of those girls whose a big stickler for rules.
You may be thinking that means she has a stick up her butt; I can assure you she doesn't though. The day she meets the sexy ex-marine, Kevin, she knows she's going to have a hard time resisting him. Who can blame her? Kevin is anything but a coward. He sees what he wants and he's going to get it. If the girl he happens to be interested didn't already work for his mother. Oh, did I mention that yet? Kevin is Nicole's son.
That obviously causes problems all on its own. I don't know what's been up with me and wedding themed books, but I just can't help myself! They're way too addicting. I would like to add that although this a standalone, there are characters from past books. Such as the ladies from 'The Wedding Pact' series. Obviously, I went and bought all those books just to somewhat stay in the world.
The books that are going to follow in this trilogy are about Kevin and his friends who form a pack, Bachelor Brotherhood, for obvious reasons. They have sworn off women! It's funny to see how Kevin totally doesn't even last all that long. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's fun, light-hearted, and the romance is so swoony!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese, which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty (in her own mind) Facebook comments and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn't lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.
