REVIEW: Only You by Marie Landry

by - 9:30 AM

“There’s something about Hugh that makes me want to drop my guard and spill all my thoughts and feelings.”

Back of the book blurb:

Ivy's new boss is sexy, Scottish…and comes with an expiration date.

When Ivy reluctantly takes a new part-time job, it’s a means to an end. Doing this favor for her pain-in-the-neck roommate means Ivy can have her apartment to herself again much sooner. The last thing she expects is Hugh—the hot Scot who just happens to be her new boss—asking her out on a date. And then another. And another.

Something about Hugh makes Ivy want to let her guard down and open up, which would be perfect if he wasn't possibly returning to Scotland in a matter of weeks. But maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe Ivy can learn to live in the moment and have a little fun, even if it means setting herself up for heartache later.

My rating:

            I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, again!

            Only You caught me by surprise. I’d never read any of Marie Landry’s work; however, this will not be the last novel of hers I read, because Only You hit me right in the feels over and over again. Only You is the perfect holiday read to get you in the spirit.

“Oh god. Please don’t tell me my resistance is due to some latent Santa fetish that’s just waiting for the right opportunity to arise.”

            I think my favorite thing about Only You was the humor that was weaved throughout. I love a good book that makes me laugh (while I’m also falling in love). Only You was exceptionally hilarious, providing the reader with a few sweet spots that will make them laugh and laugh. And I loved that so much.

“Too bad what I really want for Christmas is something not even Santa himself could deliver.”

            Only You is quite light-hearted; however, there is still some angst weaved in throughout, which I was pleasantly surprised about. The novel doesn’t get too heavy, but there are still some serious parts that will have you hurting for the characters, especially because you fall in love with them so easily.

“I know it probably sounds super cheesy, but we all look out for each other here.”

            Gah, the family themes that ran throughout Only You gave me all the feels! I loved how everyone was so tight in Santa’s Village. Ivy making new friends, as well as staying friends with some of her old friends, really lit up my heart!

            All of the characters were extremely lovable and I absolutely fell hard for every single one of them.

            Only You will have you believing in the magic of Christmas (and love) once more.

Happy Reading!
