Crystal has been lusting over Mark DeSanto ever since his company set up offices in the building she works in.

There were several awkward revelations after Crystal comes to, but the episode endears her to Mark and they start seeing each other.
Mark has no desire to have a steady relationship with a woman after witnessing the toxic marriage his parents have. One-night ...more
I love Sydney Landon's Danvers series and if you're a fan of lighthearted and steamy romance, it's a series I highly recommend.
I thought Crystal was adorably quirky. Mark was super sexy as well....but there was also something...missing. But I'll get to that in a bit.
The One For Me was a wonderful book, but a clear case of just not for me. There was nothing wrong with it aside from the fact that it had a couple of my personal pet peeves as a reader that proved difficult to move past ...more

The One for Me is the 8th and I believe final book in Sydney Landon's Danver's Series. I absolutely LOVE this series!! It is one that I know I will revisit many times in the future. This is the type of series that when I am looking for that easy, feel good and sexy love story, I turn to the Danver's group of friends. Sydney has created such an amazing group of characters ...more

I adore this series. It's full of charm, humor, love, friendship, loyalty, family and passion. In The One for Me, we finally get Mark's story. Mark DeSanto has always been a bit of a mystery with his never attached dominant ways. Even though he's the king of one night stands he's always been there when he's needed with his friends. Crystal Webber is Ella's sister. She's also been a bit repressed with ...more

The One For Me is the eight book in the Danvers series, but can be totally read as a stand-alone. The One For Me was a quick and entertaining read. It is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Mark and Crystal. Mark is rich, handsome and used to getting what he wants. He loves his life and everything just seems to be going his way....Until one day, ...more

After a rather improbable beginning, the story flowed into a fun and super sexy romance that I could not put down. Crystal was a bit naïve in life experiences but she knew what she wanted and found that in Mark. I liked that he was not just a strong businessman but also had a sense of humor and his...more
The heroine (Crystal/Angel) got sick and then complained to the hero (Mark) that she doesn't like to go to doctors or hospital because of being left alone in a hospital by herself when she was kid when she had her tonsils removed. Basically her mother left the child at the hospital for a short time to probably attend to her other child. But seriously, ...more
Hope all other readers find this book interseting as i did ... the sex scences made my feel curl ...
the love they shared was great and i can't wait to start the next/last book ... <3<3
I was hooked from the opening page and both did and didn’t want the story to end because I was loving it so much. One of the things I love most about the Danvers series is that they immediately fall into the comfort reads category. I know when I pick one up I’m in for a fantastic ...more
Mark & Crystal
MAKE THE LEAP FROM HONDA TO LAMBORGHINI
So this installment into the Danver's menagerie is a little different than the rest. Wanna know why? It's hotter, it's sexier, and holy freaking hell is it ever dirty! I have loved this series from the get-go. Sydney's books are always so well rounded... Sexy alpha, head-strong female, a dilemma, a solution, and a kickass climax. I'm not gonna sit here and blow smoke up your ass, if you're checking ...more
Until her divorce, Crystal Webber never knew what it was like to follow her heart. Now she wants to experience all life has to offer. So when she catches a glimpse of Mark DeSanto in the halls of Danvers ...more
This is my first try of Sydney Landon and honestly, it was just lackluster.
The storyline is what it promises-a feel good, pass-the-time, cliche type (but not cliche) romance and this is not a genre I have a problem with. I embrace the genre and I think that Syndey's work tries to replicate this but while the storyline is fairly interesting the writing is just not up to scratch.
The basic English and grammar is not the issue here but rather the character dialogue. It's ...more
Mark DeSanto is the Danvers International "Man-Candy" - He is pure sexiness, that every woman who see him ...more
Mark and Crystal could not be more different! Crystal Webber is quiet and perhaps a bit shy. She is incredibly loyal and caring as well. Between her caring nature and limited experience, she easily turns into a doormat when her insipid ex-husband or domineering mother confront her. On the ...more
I'm sad that this is the last of the Danvers series untill November and its pretty safe to say I'll be marking that release date in my diary. Not one of this series has the same storyline and therefore has kept me riveted. Sydney clearly has a huge talent for romance with plenty of heat and drama for all of her characters. No different in The One For Me.
Since her divorce, Crystal Webber has been under the pump from her overbearing pain in the ass ...more
I don't mind when the characters fall in love the instant they meet. As long as they give time to know each other and just make the pacing good. With The One for Me, the story felt forced. The characters ...more
Mark is the classic playboy, never getting to close to any women who can hold a claim to his heart. But when a beauty falls at this feet, he does't know what to do next.
If it wasn't for his bed hopping ways, Mark would be the perfect man. He's rich, attractive, and ...more
and Mark. at first I thought he would be way too serious for her, maybe even a cheater. I have to admit how wrong I was. ...more
The writing was good, but the main characters were not. This is part of the Danvers series which I think has potential, but as the first one that I’ve read – I didn’t connect to the characters at all.
I really couldn’t sympathize with the two main characters, Mark DeSanto and Crystal Webber. They were both so annoying by the end – I wanted to pull my hair out! I did like Denny’s character – he provided great comic relief. The other characters in the book and their ...more
This story is about Crystal Webber and Mark DeSanto.
Since her divorce, Crystal is dealing with her overbearing mother and ex-husband who wants to give their marriage another go. All she wants to do is move on, especially with the sinfully good looking alpha male Mark DeSanto.
Crystal has been watching ...more
The story just really didn't go anywhere. It was just a rehashing of other books in the series. (view spoiler)[ They even copy the chair ...more
The start of the book held promise. The "meet cute" of embarrassing proportions did have me giggle. Sadly, that is where it ended. Not saying that I am a prude, but the language got old rather quickly. The gossip between friends offered zero character growth. I may have smirked a time or two with the Twitter references, but this story portrayed a relationship built solely on sex and not much else. Or that is how it seemed to me.
The parents of both "main" characters (and I ...more
The synopsis is what caught me attention, i just couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into this. But some disappointment follow.
The one for me is written in 3rd person. Now I decided not to judge the poor book on the fact that is written in 3rd person, its not after all the books fault that I don’t like 3rd person writing. It took me awhile to get into the book. And as we progressed the writing style didn’t seem to bother ...more
