The One (The Only One #1)
by Belle Ami
Release date:February 10th 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Suspense
well do you really know the one you love? An erotic novel full of
obsessive love, dark secrets, and unquenchable lust, Belle Ami’s The One
proves that no one is quite who they seem.
Adelia, a rising
star in the equestrian world, is still reeling from her parents’ deaths
in a tragic car accident when she meets green energy investment banker
Miles Bremen and his charming yet inscrutable twin sister, Karolin. With
his insatiable lust, Miles ignites a passion within Adelia she never
knew existed, and the two quickly find themselves entwined in a torrid
affair that knows no bounds. Little does Adelia know, however, that her
meeting of the Bremen twins was no accident. Carefully selected as “the
one” for her unsettling resemblance to the emotionally and physically
damaged Karolin, Adelia is targeted to marry Miles and bear the children
that Karolin cannot have.
The One is a razor edge mystery
that enfolds on the playgrounds of the super rich, from Trump Tower to
the Hamptons and Palm Beach; to the Amalfi Coast aboard Miles’s
mega-yacht Green Way, The One is irresistible as the reader is drawn
into Adelia’s journey through a suspenseful – and erotic world. An
edge-of-your-seat thriller that will leave readers breathless in more
ways than one, The One is an irresistible journey through—new territory
that fans of romantic fiction are bound to love.

Ami just blew my mind with The One. I have to admit, I was a little
confused while reading the first chapter. But after reading the next few
chapters, I understood what the first chapter was about and I'm glad I
stayed with Adelia's story. By the middle of the book, I was into Adelia
and Miles's story, and by the end I was hooked. I think the author
explains the meaning perfectly behind this storyline in her blurb when
she says: How well do you really know the one you love?
character is definitely true to those words. I can see the mystery
behind this guy, even though I haven't figured him all the way out yet.
And I also know I will not know who Miles truly is until the next book.
This is a series, so you are not going to get all the answers in the
first book. Miles did go into this relationship with Adelia with deceit
in mind, but then we see how love changes him and the malice he intended
for Adelia. But someone else’s lie becomes Miles's downfall, and the
evil that was in him from before, that his love for Adelia was able to
conquer, comes back in full fury to tear her apart. And I feel like
that's where the first chapter in this story comes back into play, even
though it was a little confusing for me at the beginning. But it now
explains the evil that lives in Miles. And I think this was made clear
in the last scene between Adelia and Miles when it all went to hell
I also can see where Adelia was in a very
vulnerable place in her life when she met Miles, and how easy it was for
her to fall in love with someone as charming and daunting as Miles. But
I love that David was in the background waiting for her, if there ever
came a time that Adelia would need him. I can't wait to see how this
turns out between Adelia and David in the next book, because it was
heartbreaking where it left off in this first book.
I fell in
love with Adelia, Miles and David, and the mystery and suspense
surrounding them, and yes I am definitely hooked and must have the
answers. I recommend The One as dark romance suspense must read.
