The One That I Want by Piper Sheldon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Show of hands, who was humming the tune You’re The One That I Want while writing their review? *looks around* okay, so just me. LIES! LOL No, this is not a retelling of any sort of the movie Grease but there are a few plot points that you just can’t help but think of the movie over; combine that with the title and here we are, humming 🙂 and I love it! This story gave me happy vibes and happy chills! (and they might have multiplied lolololol (sorry, I’ll stop now))

PSA: It is my humble opinion that you should read this series from the beginning. Technically, each book can stand on its own, but the Scorned Women’s Society are a group of women born from a shared circumstance in their past; they’re all Jethro Winston’s ex-girlfriends. They are a click. They stick together and are there for each other in all the ways. They are in each other’s lives, therefor each other’s stories so … do with that info what you will.

Now, about this incredibly poignant story full of heart and hope. A slow-burn journey sexier and more passionate than any other I have read in quite some time. The interactions between Roxy and Sanders as they navigate their journey made my heart soar. They both have their own history and personal baggage to navigate in order to move forward with each other and it is because of each other that they are able to move forward. Two pieces of a puzzle that perfectly fit. One without the other would be an incomplete puzzle. GAH, I loved every moment of this story. I wanted to me in it and I wanted them as part of my life!

Sidebar: These covers are a thing of beauty and I hope against hope that Piper doesn’t decide to change them one day! #winning

Okay, that’s all I have. Go do the thing now …
