If you love a great read with two beautiful broken souls finding each other and fighting to fix what’s broken, this book is for you! Jack and Victoria story definitely delivered everything I could have hoped for.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Just One Look by Maria La Serra is book Two in The One Love Series. This is the story of Jack Turner and Victoria Fairfax. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Victoria is a hard working women who works several jobs to make money so that one day she can open her own cratering business. Victoria also volunteers at the local children's hospital. What she doesn't like is lawyers who she has a past issue with. When she is at a job workings

Just One Look is an endearing, clean romance about two people who find themselves running into each other again and again. Victoria is a young woman who works a variety of odd jobs to make ends meet, while also volunteering at the local children’s hospital. She meets Jack when she is working as a bartender, and it’s hate at first sight for Victoria. He works at a law firm she despises, and she takes an instant dislike to his charming persona. For Jack, it took just one look for him to know he wa ...more

Maria La Serra is a new to me author, and I had both books in The One Love Series, which I read in one day, that's how addictive her writing style is. However, it's also very frustrating with the extreme push & pull that this hero, the hotshot attorney Jack Turner, and heroine, too many jobs holder Victoria Fairfax, had going on, that I'm surprised I'm not literally bald to be honest. They meets when she's moonlighting as a bartender, while he's bored of his date at charity event. She believes t ...more

I absolutely loved everything about this book except for Victoria's dad and her roommate Scarlett. Her dad is a vindictive jerk and her mom had good intentions on keeping her away from him. Scarlett honestly drove me nuts with her neediness and her ability to guilt trip Victoria. She is the complete opposite of Victoria in every way possible. I'm also glad that the date with Jack was a joke.
Anyway back to Jack and Victoria. I loved how these two interacted together. There was so much tension be

I have to say that this book blew me out of the water. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The One & Only, but this book hooked me even more! I loved watching Victoria call Jack out on all his crap, and that she made him be vulnerable with her. I also enjoyed that Jack did the same with her. They were both broken souls at the beginning of the book, and I loved that they were able to put each other back together! ...more

This is a lovely romance story. I love a slow burn love story and that’s what I got with this book.

I really enjoy it when it’s the male lead that’s surer than the female, about their relationship. The little dance Jack and Victoria do; the push and pull, is definitely something that kept me turning the pages.

Victoria seemed a bit downtrodden to me and I really wanted to make her look after herself for a change, she really is a selfless, lovely girl. Jack is confident and so cheeky that I was in

After reading and enjoying the first book in the series I could not wait to read this one and what a super read it was I enjoyed it even more than the first book. I just loved Jack and Victoria they were just great together both have their baggage but together they start to heal I just loved that she called him out and did not put up with any of his rubbish. This was a good well-written read and I would recommend it.

"You make me want to dream about love again.”

As a reader it's a pleasure to see a writer grow with each book. Maria La Serra delivers with "Just One Look" a story with different characters that find comfort, love and redemption in each other. Jack and Victoria are really against each other but when reading the little moments, I could feel the intensity of their connection. Clean romance, characters seeking redemption and deep love is the hallmark that characterizes each book by Maria La Serr

Just One Look is definitely one of the top five books I've read this year. This is a slow burn, and Maria absolutely exceeded any expectations I had over what a slow burn should be. Jack and Victoria are absolutely perfect for each other, and I loved how confident Jack is in their relationship regardless of Victoria's hesitations.

There is such a pull between these characters that I couldn't stop reading, I literally read this in one sitting because I needed to see what has going to happen. Over

The lawyer and the wannabe caterer.

Victoria is working as a bartender to open her catering company.

Jack is a lawyer, pretty shallow and vain.
He makes a decision to help her father and not Victoria.

Three months pass without him doing anything to make amends.
Will he get a clue?

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Maria La Serra; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Victoria is a hard working women who works several jobs to make money so that one day she can open her own cratering business. Victoria also volunteers at the local children's hospital. What she doesn't like is lawyers who she has a past issue with. When she is at a job workings as a bartender she ends up being saved by Jack when someone gets interoperate. Jack knows pretty quickly that Victoria is someone he wants to know and be with but Victoria isn't getting on board with that.

Good story

I enjoyed this story of Victoria & Jack trying to work out their relationship. However, there were some places where conversations were "stilted", as if there were something left out that would make issues to understand the situation. Overall, I liked the book.

Just One Look is the second book in Maria La Serra's The One Love series.

Victoria and Jack meet after he helps her when a man harasses her while she bartends an event. There is definite attraction and a connection formed as they get to know each other. Victoria hates lawyers, though, and Jack happens to work for one of the best law firms in the city. They each have their baggage and difficult decisions to make.

I found it difficult to connect with either character and at times found them to be f
