“Heartfelt, beautiful and sexy! There’s a reason Melanie Harlow is one of my absolute favorite romance authors, and Only Love is the latest example of why she holds that spot. Ryan and Stella’s love touched my heart!”

The beautiful, compassionate therapist living next door.
A meddlesome grandma determined to get them together.
I was expecting a proposal on my birthday, and I got dumped instead.
How could I have been so clueless?
Grams knew exactly how to distract me.
The “cute boy next door” who’s been helping her with yard work clearly needs a little therapy. Who better to call than her newly single therapist granddaughter?
She even fakes dementia to get me to visit, and now that I’m here she’s doing everything in her power to throw us together.
Not that I’m complaining. Ryan is the sexiest man I’ve ever met–I mean the full package, from the chiseled jaw to the massive shoulders to the rippling abs. (And yes, his package is full, and he knows exactly how to deliver it.) He makes me want to get out of my head and follow my heart. He makes me want to take chances I never thought I’d take.
He also makes me want to take my clothes off. A lot.
But he’s moody and challenging–one minute he’s an open book, and the next he’s completely closed off. He holds me like he’ll never let go, but insists he wants to be alone.
Some wounds are so deep, only love can heal them.
How can I convince him to let me try?
| Only Love is the final book in the One and Only series by Melanie Harlow and follows Stella Devine (the eldest Devine sister).
After a horrible birthday dinner and a weird conversation with Grams, Stella finds herself heading up to see Grams and make sure everything is okay with her health (hips, hearing, eyes – anything the sweet old lady can come up with…). Ryan, the hot former Marine that is renting the place across from Grams, has been helping out with little projects around the house, completely unaware that Grams is scheming the entire time.
Stella has never been one to be crazy in love. After some bad experiences, she thinks that she is just meant to be the dull, boring, sexless sister. Ryan has thought he was in love, been married and divorced, and served multiple tours of duty over seas as a US Marine. Home now, he is absolutely struggling to return to “normal” life.
The therapist in Stella wants to help Ryan through all that he is dealing with, but something else is driving her to him. Something she has not experienced before. Lust. The hottness factor of the quiet stranger across from Grams is something she was not planning for when she rearranged her entire week to go see Grams.
Can Stella break down Ryan’s walls? Can Ryan show Stella how to live – truly live – not just exist? Find out now in this amazing new book by Melanie Harlow!!
