Well, peeps. How many of you glanced at the cover and the synopsis and dismissed this book as describing one of the most used tropes in romance genre? Yeah, right. If I wasn't a long-standing fan of Sherry Thomas, starting from her historicals and ending by her incredibly well put together young adult fantasy fiction series, I would have gleefully walked by.

Well, don't. Thomas's new venture into contemporary romance was just as successful as Milan's latest, Trade Me. The more I read her, the more I realise that this woman can not do anything wrong in my book.

The One in My Heart starts like a trope but it turns everything you know and expect upside down. The character development is exquisite, the family ties are strong and healthy, the dialogues between primary or secondary characters both, are to die for.

Bennett and Evangeline meet by chance on a rainy night while Evangeline wanders around thinking about her beloved stepmother with her mental illness. She is emotionally vulnerable, and Bennett, barely an acquaintance fits the bill for a beautiful stranger whom she wants to forget her woes with for one night. She comes up for a slice of tiramisu and stays for a delicious sexual encounter.

Months later they meet again, and this time he has an offer for a successful, talented professor with a highly esteemed family connections. He wants to reconcile with his estranged parents and needs a pretend girlfriend to ease his way in.

I am dying to tell you what's really going on, but it would spoil a lovely surprise.Suffice to say, you will be surprised and touched and wooed. The One In My Heart reminded me of The Genius and The Muse by Elizabeth Hunter, Trade Me by Courtney Milan and the latest trilogy Elements of Chemistry by Penny Reid. The characters are highly intelligent, wry, cagey and not prone to dramatics. I absolutely love that, and if you do too, you are in for a treat!

Highly recommended, read it.
