 Landscaper Brett Walker might have two sisters on the brink of making marriage commitments, but he’s not ready to promise a lifetime to any woman. Especially not to tempting and beautiful Angelica Rodriguez, one of the resort area’s wealthy visitors. They come from two different worlds. Angelica Rodriguez wants family, friends, and a place where she can sink her roots deep. A man, not so much. After all, her father has just swindled her savings away. What she needs is a job, and when Brett’s sister offers her a position cleaning houses and his other sister says she can stay at the family cabins, Angelica can’t say no—though it means becoming a neighbor to the maddening and oh-so-masculine Brett, who makes her want to say yes, yes, yes. On the autumn shores of beautiful Blue Arrow Lake, can two lonely, wary people open their hearts to love? This is an enhanced version of a book previously published as CAN’T FIGHT THIS FEELING and includes extras.

One Night is my first read by Christie Ridgway, it is the third book in the One & Only series and I didn't feel as if I missed out on the first two in order to enjoy this story. It did leave me wanting to read and find out about the characters in the first two books.

Brett Walker is not your ordinary alpha male character, he is a grumpy landscaper and a brother to three sisters ( 2 of which are planning a wedding).  Brett has a past that carries a heavy burden and heartbreak it has also kept him far away from falling in love and wanting that happy ever after. He can't help himself when it comes to Angelica Rodriguez, he has her pegged for an uptight wealthy woman looking for that richie rich type of man. Why would she even look twice at a man who works with dirt and with his hands? His push pull need for her had me frustrated, because the connection is so felt right off the pages.

Angelica Rodriguez has had her sights set on Brett ever since she noticed him working on the landscape at the resort she used to stay in when she was younger. Now that Angelica's father has taken everything from her she finds herself needing a place to live and a job. Angelica finds solace on Blue Arrow Lake, she is offered a job and a cabin, the only problem is that it has Brett Walker written all over them. Being his neighbor and working for his sisters will take all the strength she needs to control her desire for this gorgeous man who can drive her crazy. I loved that even though Angelica is struggling with the obstacles that are being thrown at her by her father's actions, she stayed optimistic.

I really enjoyed this story, it's funny, heartfelt, frustrating, sexy  and has a little suspense. Once the connection between Brett and Angelica is felt, it upped the story for me because the emotions were felt. We also get a surprise love story thrown in there with another couple, which I found cute and endearing. This story also left me wanting to no more about Brett's sister Mackenzie and Zan, so I can't wait for One Love. I have to say there is a lot going on in this story, characters coming left and right. Surprisingly, I found that I didn't mind that. I would recommend this 4 Star contemporary romance, it has heart pouring off the pages.

One Love by Christie Ridgway is coming on JULY 18th!

Preorder Now:
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.
