"The One You Want" [The Original Heartbreakers Series, Book 0.5] by Gena Showalter

Author's Book Description : Kenna Starr will do anything to overcome her bad-girl past in Gena Showalter's "The One You Want." Dane Michaelson is rich, sexy and plays hard, exactly the kind of guy she needs to avoid, but he's used to getting what he wants, and he wants her.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Childhood acquaintances, because of their parents’ longtime affair, Dane & Kenna (Freckles) find that they have a stronger connection to one another then they would have expected once they meet again years later. However, will their budding relationship be able to withstand small town gossip, their parents’ remarks, and the distance that is already between them?

As I was already, a fan of Ms. Showalter before I read this novella it was hard not to enjoy it. So, I wasn't surprised that Dane, Kenna, and their story quickly enraptured me. It was erotically sweet and had a great buildup for its upcoming series. In addition, Kenna's fun/silly bucket list that Dane tried to assist with made this novella even more enjoyable to read!

Even though it wasn't a "main plot point," the only part where I feel this novella is left a bit hanging about Dane’s mother as I think there should be another interaction with her because of everything she did to knock Kenna down a peg. As she went out of her way to hurt Kenna's financial stability and other then having it being noted there wasn't much else done about it in the novella, which felt a bit wrong.

Nevertheless, I recommend this novella and series to those who like contemporary romances! I cannot wait to see where this series will take us next!

Book Teaser(s) :
"I'd like a moment of your time," he said.
She opened her mouth, closed it, then took a step away from him. He got the distinct impression she meant to refuse him, which amazed him. Women more often than not did whatever he asked. Of course, they either worked for him, so he was paying them, or they were dating him, so he was screwing them.
"Please," he added, and the word felt foreign on his tongue.
Her shoulders slumped just a little. "Oh, all right."
He almost grinned. Almost. "Your enthusiasm is heartwarming." ~ within Chapter 2
Jessie Kay rolled her eyes. "Go bang the hottie. We'll be fine."
"What does bang mean?" Norrie asked.
"It means to punch him," Kenna said, and told herself it wasn't actually a lie. "But that would be rude, so I'm not going to do it."
"You're so nice, Momma." ~ within Chapter 3
