While I LOVED bk 1, The One Place, I’ll have to go with “like” here for bk 2. The One Girl is from Tuck’s POV which is something I usually love but bk 2 just didn’t have the same spark for me as The One Place. However, it did wrap up the story with a sweet HEA for one of my favorite couples. I might have left my rating at 3.5 stars except for the way the whole ending went with Drew. His role as the heavy started off the story in bk 1 and highlighted the drama at the end of it. You just knew ther ...more

Satisfying conclusion

This picks up where the last book leaves off, Tuck and Talie are faced with a huge bombshell however after that things pretty much go back to normal.

The explanations into why Andrew doesn't do anything was believable but a little anticlimactic.

This book is really about them opening up to each other even more and getting use to their new life together. While facing a few more hurdles.

I didn't really like Kayla but glad Cole is getting his own book. (hopefully not with Kayla)

This book starts right where The One Place left off. But this book is in Tucker's POV(Have I already mentioned that I LOVE Tucker?!) This book not only explores more of Talie and Tucker's relationship, but also deals with people from their past that now add complications to it.

"Couldn't be happier that you ended up here with me, Babe. I just mean that that's either one hell of a coincidence or fate has one hell of a sick sense of humor."

We also get to meet Talie's sister Kayla who is really fun

This books starts off right where The One Place ended, but the entire book is in Tuck's POV, which made for unique storytelling, because Ms. Curtis can apparently think like a man.

I enjoyed this one a whole lot better than book one and that was odd to me because this one was told from Tucker's perspective. Which, if you read my review above you would be shaking your head at me right now. Surprisingly though reading this from Tucker's pov wasn't as bad as his scenes in book 1. His grammar was way better in this one and I actually fell in love with him by the end.

This one picks up right where book one left off with Andrew showing up at the diner Talie works at in Jo

Laurel Ulen Curtis’s The One Girl picks up right where we left off in The One Place. This time it’s told in Tucker’s point of view and what a breath of fresh air! Kudos to Curtis for giving us a male perspective in a second book instead of having to wait for his point of view in a later book like some authors are prone to do (if they decide to so). If you haven’t read The One Place then I highly recommend doing so because you’ll be lost otherwise.

Review cross-posted on my blog

These books are Adult Contemporary. As you saw previously there is language and quite a bit of sexual content.

SO glad I had this book to read right after the first one! We immediately pick back up where we left off with the cliffhanger from the first novel. I really didn't see that twist coming at ALL. So props to Laurel for rocking my world a little bit there! I won't give anything away, but the past really does have a way coming back to get you.

This book was good

I can say this book was just as good as the first one in the series if even better. A lot went down in the final chapter of last book. So you can imagine that this story is more intense then the first. With that said I can say that I loved this book, it's characters, and its message.

The story takes place immediately after the first book. Tuck and Natalie have just found out that their pasts are intertwined. Drew has found Natalie and protecting her at all costs is what's important. Natalie know

** spoilers from book one** As I stated in my review of book one the second I finished book one I cracked open my kindle to read book two. The ending of book one hooked me. Book one The One Place was in the heroines point of view and book two is in the heroes point of view which was a nice surprise but I almost wished it was a split point of view book. The One Girl starts were book one left off. Tucker and Natalie just found out that Andrew Jenny(Natalie's friend) and Natalie's abuser is the sam ...more

So I read this book straight off the back of the first one.
Tucks POV.....

I am not so sure, he felt a bit girly and kept going on about the same things a bit. When there was a bit of action towards the end of the book it just didn't seem manly enough from his view!

And the grammar. There is one sentence that for some reason I spent far to long distracted by.
when her parents are coming over and she says "you know this is going to go horribly right?"
I think it is meant to say "you know this is goin
The One Girl fell kind of flat for me. This time around its told from Tucker's POV, and he had these long drawn out inner monologues that an emo woman would have. It was annoying as all hell. All questions were answered but to me it came off as kind of lame. I'm just saying if my boo thangs bat shit crazy sister tried to kill me, me and that cray cray bitch will not be friends, mental illness and brain injury be damned. All in all I say give it a try because book 1 ends on a cliffhanger BUT be p ...more

So it turns out, this author really seems to like adding a twist to her stories and this one had one I really didn't see coming but that just makes it fun! I really enjoyed this series. I would have loved Kayla to get her own (hint-hint) but in any case, it was a good book. I liked Tuck quite a lot but then I really liked Natalie too. And their friends. Hopefully someday we'll wander back into Joplin via these books again! Highly enjoyable book!

This book picked up right where the first one left and I must say this one was waaaay better than the first.
I think being in Tukes POV could have been the reason. It was funny and sexy as hell and just read alot better than the first.

The main charaters were just awesome. The supporting characters were brillent and made the story what it is and if there is a third book about Cole - cant wait!!

This book was only 135 pages. That is my "negative" comment.
This book kept me up late because I didn't start it until 9! Once I realized it was available, I was not about to NOT start the book.
Love the characters and that she brought in Kayla, the sassy sister. I need me a Tucker Cody!!! Matter of fact, think I would like to just pack up and move to Joplin, too. Can't wait for Cade's story!

"The One Girl" picks up right where the first book "The One Place" left off with a few new characters thrown in. This book is told by Tucker's perspective and deals with their past. Just as the first book, the characters had great chemistry and the story line just flowed nicely to the end. This series is a must read for all romantic suspense readers.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
Secretly Adorkable Readers
A very good story line with a continuation of a hard subject from the first book. An lot of language and explicit sex scenes but the author did warn us, just a little more than what I can take. Love Tuck, Talia, and the gang. Kayla brought in a lot of humor in the story. Can't wait for Coleman Colts story.
This is the second and final book for this contemporary romance/drama for Adult/New Adult. Loads of twists, turns and psychological mind f...slaps as well as a satisfying conclusion to a well written book.

2.5 stars. It still wasn't great but it was noticeably better than the first one. There was still way too much use of "babe" for me but it had more action than the first one. I'm not sure I find it all believable but I guess it's fiction.

What a twist!

The first book had me hooked and the second was just what I needed to a conclusion.

I really enjoyed reading about Tallie and Tucker, it was sweet, heartbreaking and lovely and the secondary characters really made it for me too!
