Release Boost + Book Review of One Love by Christie Ridgway

One Love by Christie Ridgway is LIVE! Genre: Contemporary Romance NOW AVAILABLE!
 Mackenzie Walker is attempting to enjoy the last of her siblings’ weddings when her long-lost first love, Alexander “Zan” Elliott, crashes the reception. During the last ten years she’s cultivated her reputation as tough and unsentimental, but one glimpse of Zan softens her heart and sets her pulse racing. But he claims to be a short-timer in the area and she’ll never admit—not even to herself—she’s been carrying a torch for him all this time. Zan Elliott has business at Blue Arrow Lake and then he’ll go right back to his wandering-the-world life as a documentary filmmaker. But seeing the Walkers again, seeing Mac again, brings back the best of childhood memories. There are lessons he learned then too, however. Love means loss and starting things up once more with Mac might ultimately hurt them both. Yet battling his feelings is getting more difficult by the day… Winter is anything but cold in the snowy mountains surrounding beautiful Blue Arrow Lake as a reunion between two former lovers sparks a brand new fire. This is an enhanced version of a book previously published as CAN’T FIGHT THIS FEELING and includes extras.

One Love is the second book that I have read by Christie Ridgway and it is the fourth book in the One & Only series. Ridgway's writing style may have been a slow start for me to get use to, but in her last book she left me with a want to find out more of the amazing Walker family. I just had to know more about Mac and Zan's story and that comes down to amazing writing that has a way of drawing me in emotionally. 

Mackenzie Walker is the oldest sister in this close-knit group of siblings, she is a strong character but is she strong enough to make it through 3 of her siblings weddings? Mac has hid behind her business, always keeping busy and avoiding all emotions instead of dealing with the memories of the guy that broke her heart and dreams when he walked away from her 10 years ago.  Now, that Zan has come home to deal with family business how will Mackenzie be able to deal with the weddings, her business, and her heart?

Alexander "Zan" Elliot has never felt like he fit in, he had the best of friends in the Walker family but it wasn't enough to fight the internal struggle he has been carrying around. He now finds himself returning home to Blue Arrow Lake, a place that holds good memories and nightmares. The one thing that Blue Arrow has that wandering the world would never have is the love of his life, the one girl whose heart he broke and whose life he truly was never willing to let go of.  Will Zan be able to walk away from her for the second time or will his time home remind him of the family and the dreams that he once had? 

One Love is  a contemporary romance that will have you swooning, crying and falling in love with this beautiful family.  I loved the characters, story-line, picturing the amazing scenes and feeling apart of their lives. 5 Star Must read
