Only One Kiss
Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now.
What could go wrong?
I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn't have time to sleep, l ...more
Yes, he called her his dead wife’s name, be glad he didn’t do it while you were doing it. She’s acting like he cheated, crying and calling everyone telling them how he called her “Cassie” and he’s thinking that he was having a heart attack and crying because he hurt her by saying the name was funny asf as well as stupid. Bunch of ridiculous people!
I had a wonderful time with the series “This Is” and Only One Kiss was a fantastic start for the new “Only One” series.
A very heartwarming and sweet sports romance read!
Ralph was a great single dad character, focused, passionate and slightly over possessive.
Candace, a strong and feisty social media expert, independent, and caring.
Ariella, the cutest and most adorable 5 months old princess, stole my heart from the very start.
Beautifully written, very well developed characters, fin ...more
Luckily, the story is a new series and can be read as a standalone. But it does have me wanting to drop everything and curl up with t ...more
Only One Kiss is the first book in a spinoff series. This is is Ralph & Candace's story and is a single dad hockey romance which is usually right up my alley but sadly I did not love this one was much as I thought I would.
Even though this is stylized as a standalone I found the beginning of the book wasn't as smooth of a transition for someone like me who has not read the previous series connected to this story. There were a lot of names and characters thrown in and family dynami ...more
Natasha Madison is fast becoming a favourite and I could not resist signing up to review her latest book.
“One kiss is all it takes for me to fall in love with you”.
This statement reflects the story told in Only One Kiss, the first book in the Only One series.
The story introduces Candace, a social media influencer to the top NHL players. She started out promoting ...more
The start of a new series from Natasha Madison, and a sweet, sexy and emotional single-dad sports romance that absolutely melted my heart. I read this book in a day, unable to put it down, and I loved it!
This is the story of Candace and Ralph. Candace is a social media expert for professional hockey players, Ralph is a member of the Dallas team who is the single father of a 5 month old baby girl. (Fun fact: Candace is the younger sister of Evan from This Is Crazy, creating a fantastic ...more

⭐️ 5 "All In" Stars ⭐️
This first installment in the Only One Series was so freaking amazing. Single dad romances always get to me deeply and Only One Kiss wasn't an exception. I couldn't get enough of Candace, Ralph and baby Ariella. Natasha Madison easily captured my heart with this slow burn romance brimming with feels and passion. It’s not a secret that the Something So Series and its spin-off This Is Series are my absolutely favorite sports romances. I love this group of protagonists so ...more
I've really enjoyed this story.
I have a problem with Natasha Madison's books I finish them too quickly, her writing is so smooth that I don't want put my reader down until the ens of the book.
Ralph, is a single dad and a hockey player. He tries to balance his career and being the best dad a baby girl could have. It is not easy and even if he wants to do everything by himself at one point he understands he needs some help. He hires a nanny and reluctantly a social media manager.

About Only One Kiss:
Only One Kiss is the first book in the Only One series by Natasha Madison. This novel is told from both Ralph and Candace’s point of view.
Ralph is a new single father living his life and trying to be the best dad he can possibly be for his baby girl. But every night he finds he’s haunted by the ghost of what ifs and whys. He’s pulled under in the turmoil of the past and his daughter’s mother’s passing ...more
What a book, I am speechless. I started this book and read it in hours. This book was beautifully written and was a story that is a hard one to handle. Ralph is a single father that's dealt a rough deal. Not for being a father but for the circumstances that lead him to where he is and being alone.
We met Candace in Evan's book This Is Crazy and god she was a nasty bitch to Zara. But she is to me a different woman. She has grown and has become a solid in their world. When Ralph and Candace me ...more
A Fabulous story with Laughs, Happiness, So-Cute Moments, Teary Times & lots of swoons!

I've said it before and I'll say it again each time I read a new Natasha Madison book, this chick's got it and I'm crazy glad she started her writing journey. Her words are like a soothing balm to my soul. Her characters are everything in the best (and sometimes worst) ways. She’s just got that IT factor and I hope it never goes away.
Only One Kiss is the first book in her brand new (technically a spin off but still new!) Only One series and y'all, I was here for every single little momen ...more
I look forward to more in thi ...more
It's the story of Ralph, hockey player and single dad with a heartbreaking back story, and Candace the social media guru and lover of children. Neither are necessarily looking for love but there is an attraction that they just can't fight. Whoa, their chemistry had me fanning myself!
In true Natasha Madison style she had me laughing and she had me crying. It is the perfect blend of humor, angst and hot steamy ...more
Meh, this was a generic fluffy read - perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
I liked Ralph and Candace, but the dramatics at the end were a bit much for me.
Yes, he called her his dead wife’s name. Yes, it was offensive, but honestly, the theatrics!
And as for Ralph suspecting he had a heart attack when she left? I shouldn’t laugh, but 🤣.

I've always been biased on hockey romance... Personally, I think hockey players are rougher and sexier, and I feel like most of them have alpha personalities.
I really love Ralph and Candace's love story... It was swoon-worthy... I love how reasonably possessive he was even at the beginning... I love how he's not afraid to show his vulnerable side... how he strives hard for his little girl... and how he doesn't give up so easily. And Candace, I love how strong and level-headed she is... ...more
ONLY ONE KISS had me laughing, crying, and swooning in a major way. It's everything I look for in a romance story.
Great characters, and a romance that keeps you captivated, in suspense, turning the pages, just waiting to see if everything turns out well in the end. ...more
First - just the facts.
Ralph is a suddenly widowed new dad trying to raise his daughter by himself and still play high level in the NHL. And he’s doing it!
Candace is a take charge branding and social media wizard who has built her business from the ground up and worked her butt off to be the best there is in getting the right players noticed by both their fans and the right sponsors.
