Only You, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is LIVE!
Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall—a different one every time—and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit—he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.
But it’s a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us.
I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.

Only You is Melanie Harlow’s next epic romance. I love her stories and writing so much that I didn’t even read the synopsis before I opened the book. It wasn’t necessary. I knew I would be addicted once I read the first page. I always am. If life didn’t get in the way it would have been read in one sitting. This story all started with a fire…
Nate was used to rescuing his neighbor across the hall. She locks herself out of her place so often that he has a spare key. He knows her screams when she is being attacked by a spider. Tonight it was a fire in her kitchen. He didn’t mind saving her. He was an alpha man after-all. Well…he thought he was until later that night when a baby was left on his doorstep with a note saying he was her daddy. Now, he needed Emme to rescue him. He never thought he would have to ask her how to change a diaper or make a bottle. He never wanted a baby. He never even wanted a wife. Fuck…he didn’t even do relationships. He was a divorce attorney. He didn’t need that shit in his life. He was fucked…
Emme never thought she would see the day that Nate lost control. Tonight it was happening and it was both shocking and beautiful. Nate in a suit is hot. Nate holding a baby is ten times sexier. She always thought her neighbor was handsome but he was a friend. One that had a new girl walking out of his place every Sunday morning. She never wanted to be one of those girls. She was a romantic. A wedding planner. She loved love. When she fell, she fell hard. Nate has teased her about it for years. Saying she lived in a fairytale world. Maybe she was but she wanted it all.
Nate needed her. He hated to admit that but he did. Emme was happy to help. She knew it was hard for Nate to admit his insecurities. He didn’t do feelings. They were friends who drank martinis and watched Bond flicks. They were now friends who changed diapers and took naps together. Emme knew she shouldn’t want Nate because he would only hurt her but seeing the different sides of this man made her swoon, laugh, and get all kinds of hot and bothered. And Nate wanted her. Bad. He missed her when she went home. He missed her laugh. He didn’t do relationships but with her, he might be willing to try. Maybe. He was so lost. He was losing himself. He hated losing control but his girls were worth it, right?
I absolutely loved this book. Nate is not a feelings type of man but his inner dialogue is a different story. I felt for him. Emme is seriously so damn sweet but she has a badass side too. I loved when it came out. She wasn’t taking Nate’s excuses. And Paisley, she is only two months old but she stole the show. So stinkin’ cute. She had these two wrapped around her tiny fingers. There probably wouldn’t be a Nate and Emme story without that little peanut. But, can Emme and Nate get on the same page when it comes to a future?
Overall…It was everything! It gave me all the feels. The characters are well-developed, funny, strong, beautiful, and real. They have their anxieties, insecurities, and flaws. I loved watching them grow. Their chemistry is hot. Their banter is fun. Their story is emotional. It is one of my favorite Melanie books!
“I set my fires in the bedroom, Calamity. And they’re never small.”
“I’m sorry. I was…in shock.” He stood up taller, thrust his chest out. “But I’m man enough to handle this, dammit. I’m all fucking man.”
Me: Can I bring you anything from the shop downstairs?
Nate: Yes. I’d like a case of Red Bull, 6 lines of cocaine, and a Pixie Stick.
Me: Will you settle for a doughnut?
Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.
Melanie is the author of the AFTER WE FALL series, the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.
