Crystal has been lusting over Mark DeSanto ever since his company set up offices in the building she works in. Crystal gets up close and personal when she comes down with the flu and passes out in Mark’s arms, which was hilarious! 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

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

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

This was my first Danvers book and not only was it entertaining but I just adore how the characters were and how they came together.

Mark is not only rich and successful but he is the love em and leave em type of guy until his angel literally falls at his feet after weeks from wanting to find out who exactly she is.

Crystal secretly stalks Mark when she can but when she isn't feeling well leaves early only to throw up, confess her secret fantasies and pass out at the feet of her obsession but it

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

Although this is the eighth book in the series it is the first one I have read and although I desperately wanted to know the background details of the other couples in the story, it didn't detract from the main focus in this particular story. Proving each book can be read as a stand-alone, but if you are anything like me you will be adding them all to one click as soon as you've finished this one ;)

Told in third person narrative with alternating focus between Crystal and Marco. Crystal

"Angel, I can't be your white night, and baby, you deserve to have one. I'm not capable of giving you what you're looking for."

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,

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

The One for Me by Sydney Landon is another great story from the land of Danvers. I need to find Danvers and get a job there. Crystal Webber has had it rough from a domineering mother, an unfeeling husband now ex and a crush on Mark DeStudo. What is a women do to? Ask her friends for advise, of course. Loved this book and how we always get a glimpse of what is going on with everyone at Danvers International.What a way to meet and then to say things you don't remember. It's all for the good.

Okay, I usually like Sydney Landon's books, but this one started with me rolling my eyes too many times and I hadn't even pass chapter 5 yet.
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,

Sydney Landon is back with her latest Danvers novel and yet again I’ve been reminded why this is a favourite series of mine. Reading these books is like going back to old friends and The One for Me is no different.

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

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.

Stalking the hot-as-sin, panty dropping Mark DeSanto for months and what is the first thing Crystal Webber decides to do when the opportunity to finally talk to him is...yep, you guessed it. Puke on his shoes and pass out on him. Way to go Webber! After an unflattering (well most of it to Crystal anyway) weekend with the elusive DeSanto, Crystal can't seem to figure out what the man wants. He's throwing hints at her on Twitter, but he's also playing games that may do nothing but push Crystal ...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

I absolutely love the Danvers Series by Sydney Landon. I am giddy every time a new books appears in the series and devour them as soon as I can get my hands on them! Not only do you get sassy fun (especially from the cast of characters from books before) but you get just the right amount of angst, sexy steam and a whole lot of romance! Quick fun reads that will leave a smile on your face.

The One for Me is the eighth book in Sydney Landon’s Danvers series. I haven’t read any of the previous books, and I found it quite easy to jump right in and enjoy the story of Mark DeSanto and Crystal Webber.

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

This is a contemporary romance that starts off awkward, funny, sexy (lots of erotic scenes), and delves in a bit deeper as Mark and Crystal must face their personal issues in order to move on from the past. Crystal, Ella's sister, had been bullied by her mother for years, now for having divorced her husband. Mark has issues with his parents as well. That changed a lot for me. In dealing with their parents, they both bond and develop beyond a sexy, romantic couple to what it really means to have ...more

A-Mazing..... That's it, that's all I've got.

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

When it comes to the Danvers series, I am usually all over. I love this series! Really, everyone should be reading this series. The characters are easily lovable and the stories are fun and sweet. So it breaks my heart to say this, The One for Me was less that what I am used to with this series.

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

When Crystal Webber gets sick at work, the last thing she expects is to pass out at the feet of Mark DeSanto, the one man she is crazy about. The only thing worse is waking up to find herself in his home days after the event.

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

I have to say, the beginning of the book is definitely something that captures your attention. Lusting and office stalking someone , just to meet right as your as super sick and about to faint, and a little delirious.. I have to admit. I kind of liked when Crystal was delirious, she said the best things. they has me giggling at the things that would come out of her mouth.

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.

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

Reading “The One for Me” by Sydney Landon was a reminder why I love this series so much. At the end of the book, I just wanted to start from the beginning of the series and read them all again.

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.

This is another great book by Sydney that brings two people together who were not looking for it. Well one at least! In this book you meet Mark and Crystal. Crystal has been crushing on Mark for a long time, bordering on stalking but if you don't get caught is it really that bad! Mark was another gorgeous guy who work at Danvers...God it makes me wish I could go there! You follow their story through trial and tribulation as Mark discovers a lot about himself.

Total book candy. Sweet but never fully satisfying. I feel like the Danvers series has really gone down hill lately. I had such high hopes for this one. It started off pretty funny (view spoiler) like my favorite of the series, No Denying You. But that's where the similarities seemed to end.
The story just really didn't go anywhere. It was just a rehashing of other books in the series. (view spoiler)

Not exactly for me....

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 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
