The One by Kimberly Knight is book two in The Halo series. While book one focuses on Brooke and Easton, book two looks at the relationship between their best friends, Nicole and Avery.

Much of the book follows the same outline of book one, but from Nicole and Avery’s points of views, it’s their story. Nicole is looking for a serious boyfriend, she’s ready to commit. Avery is tired of one night stands and is ready to settle down, get married and begin a family. Both are looking for THE ONE. When

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’

Kimberly Knight portrays a love at first sight relationship in this intriguing novel. Both Avery and Nicole are from different worlds but both are looking for love that lasts a lifetime. They both decide to drag their best friends on a singles cruise in the hopes of finding the one. Avery is drawn to Nicole inexplicably. He can't take his eyes off her. Nicole feels the same powerful draw that he does. They fall down the proverbial rabbit hole together.

Soon they find o

Nicole & Avery

Nicole is tired of the men in her life. She needs a change of scenery. Nicole tricks her Best Friend Brooke into a singles cruise (even though Brooke has a boyfriend, Nicole dislikes her boyfriend).

Brooke goes with Nicole on the cruise and they both end up meeting the loves of their lives. Brooke needs to leave her loser boyfriend Jared and realize her feelings for Easton but that was all in Tattooed Dots - Book #1 of the Halo Series.

Nicole and Avery fall for each other instant

The One begins right about the same place that Tattooed Dots starts, with the exception that it is told from Avery and Nicole’s points of view. The two couples meet when they all take the singles cruise to Mexico, and where Brooke and Easton’s romance didn’t start until they had returned from the cruise, Avery and Nicole’s begins right away.

Avery and Nicole’s romance is certainly a whirlwind one, from just meeting to professing their love to each other in under a week, but that doesn’t mean it i

In this book we get to know more of Avery and Nicole, our previous leads best friends.

While Brooke and Easton's love grew more graduately, Nicole and Avery's was more like wham bam thank you ma'm. They fell for one another literally in a blink of an eye and wouldn't let go of each other ever again.

One the cruise they spent every second together and although it was a whole lot of sexy time you felt that they had a

This second book was a fantastic addition to this series. This one tells the story of Nicole and Avery, which were the best friends of Ethan and Brooke who we met in the first book. They all met on the same couples cruise, but Nicole and Avery instantly embraced their connection. They hopped right into each others beds and the fireworks were

This is the first time in reading this author and by jove so glad I did. This is one of those books that intrigue you from the start because of the characters themselves that suck you in as they dialogue. Nicole has a personality that is quite charming but a woman who knows what she wants and is learning from what she had that did not work. When she is come to the conclusion that she is most definitely tired of being alone she is on a mission to find the one no more messing around (hopefully). ...more

In Tattooed Dots we got Easton and Brooke’s story and now we get Avery and Nicole’s story.

I knew what it was, what he was feeling. It was the same thing I was feeling for Nicole, but I couldn’t describe it either. It was instant. It was electric. It was magnetic. It was…f#@king awesome.

Tired of the single life, Avery is looking for “the one”. He is tired of the crazy chicks, one night stands and woman who do nothing for him mentally. The answer to his problem is to go on a singles cruise. The cr

The author did a great job with the synopsis, so I won’t go into any more detail. I would probably end up giving parts of the story away and really you just need to read this one for yourself. I’ll just tell you my thoughts on this one.

This is book 2 in the Halo series. I didn’t even realize that until it was time to do my review, so obviously you don’t have to read book 1 in the series to follow along. I will tell you that now that I have read The One, I will definitely be going back to read Ta

The One is Book Two in The Halo Series. Nicole is this loving person who has pretty crappy luck with finding available good men. Avery is a romantic at heart waiting for The One. Both have crazy chemistry between the two and in the second installment of the Halo Series, we finally get to hear their side of it. The One stays in the same time line as Tattooed Dots, but we get what we’ve all been dying to know… Nicole and Avery’s POV of their love whirl

Oh Wow, what an emotional story. After reading Tattooed Dots I knew that Nicole and Avery’s story would be a good one and I was right. The story starts at the same place as Tattooed Dots, and its great how Kimberly is able to recreate the story from different character perspectives, but you don’t feel like you’re ready the same story again (if that makes sense).

Avery, is so sweet! I love him, he is a hopeless romantic that wants to find the one person that he will spend the rest of his life with

I was lucky & honored to be on Kimberly's beta reading team for this book and also given an ARC of the finished book for an honest review.

This is the second book of the Halo series. It is Nicole and Avery's story. It still has the favorite characters from the first book Tattooed Dots. After all Easton and Brooke are Nicole and Avery's best friends. If you read Tattooed Dots and you feel in love with Easton then let me tell you Avery is going to steal your heart away.

Even though THE ONE could be read as a standalone novel, once you have read Kimberley Knight talented writing you will be immediately become a fan just as I have become with her ability to immerse me emotionally in the characters.

This is one sweet read. You will smile, cry, and then smile some more. This is book two in The Halo Series, but you do not need to read book one in order to read this one. This book is told in dual POVs which I loved, because you will be able to feel all the emotions these characters are experiencing. This is Nicole and Avery's story.

Nicole and Avery are looking for their soul-mates...the one. Nicole hasn't had much luck on finding the right man so she believes a singles cruise could be just wha

This is my first book by this author. I know that it is recommended to read Tattooed Dots (Halo #1) but I was not lost at all while reading, although it does make me extremely curious and now I want to read book 1 when I have time.

This book is a sweet, funny and SEXY read. I LOVE the leading male character Avery and I also love his best friend Easton. (Another reason to read book 1) Avery is an honest character and I lov

Nicole and Avery were introduced to us and we first meet them and their fledgling romance on the cruise that we experienced in Tattooed Dots. But Avery "Mr Romance" himself is a man on a serious love mission and both Avery and Nicole fall at each others feet in a huge hot flurry of romance. As fast paced as their relationship becomes, it is still hot and fiery romance that will se

I really enjoyed this book! This is the second book in a new series by the talented Kimberly Knight. This book is about finding your true love, overcoming obstacles, and trying to learn to have faith again. This book was beautifully written. I was smiling, laughing, and crying right along with the characters. You could feel the emotion pouring off of the pages.

I was really excited to be part of this release.. Tattooed Dots (The Halo Series book 1) is easily one of my favorite books and The One was a great follow up! It is an emotionally charge book that was a joy reading =)

The One is the story of of Avery and Nicole, the best friends of Easton and Brooke from Tattooed Dots. They all met on the same Singles cruise but this is nowhere near the same story from Book 1. Reading how they met from their POV was wonderful.

This book is a brilliant companion novel to Tattooed Dots. We get glimpse into the the relationship between Avery and Nicole during that book and I was excited to read their story. I was a little apprehensive when starting this as it runs along the same timeline as Brooke and Easton's story for the first 50% of the story which could be seen as repetitive but Kimberly brought these characters into their own and I loved to read of their antics and exploits whilst at sea.

The One is a first-rate story of two single people, Nicole and Avery, who are both ready to settle down and are looking for “the One”. They meet on a singles cruise, and their attraction is instantaneous. By the end of the seven day cruise they both feel that they are in love, but don’t say the word (Because falling in love with “the One” in seven days is crazy, right?). Instead they agree to see each other on the weekend and start a long distance relationship. In six short weeks this couple ...more

If you haven't read Tattooed Dots then I very highly suggest you do so now.

After reading this story I have to admit I enjoyed Tattooed Dots much more. Avery knew from the second he spotted Nicole and Brooke talking to Easton on the singles cruise that Nicole was his One. He wanted her to be his from then on without freaking her out and telling her too much too soon.

Fate seemed to intervene or maybe just one bad batch of condoms. It might have been quick but, Nicole and Avery made a commitment
