Synopsis:

When everything falls apart, he's the one thing that holds me together.

Ginger Teague may seem like your typical Hollywood actress with the famous boyfriend, designer clothes, money, and hit TV show, but constantly being in the public eye has its downside.
People seem more interested in her chaotic relationship with her on again/ off again boyfriend than her acting career,and Ginger isn't dealing with her new found fame in a way she always envisioned. She masks her unhappiness with too many parties and an unhealthy habit of binge drinking. As much as she wants love, men find her as a pretty amusement, not the type of girl you take home to mom and dad.
When she meets Caspian Norwood, they quickly begin a regimen of flirty emails.
He's a struggling musician that doesn't quite fit her idea of the perfect boyfriend.
He's older, mysterious, cultured, knows exactly what to say and do in all the right situations, and Ginger can't help falling for him. But the world is against them, pushing them apart, and it's beginning to feel as if they're only meant to be friends.

 

The One Thing is a standalone novel and book two in the Hollywood Timelines series. You met Ginger in The Last Thing, now hear her love story.
(Intended for ages 18 and up)

My Review: ARC provided
4.5-5 stars!

I really enjoyed this book. The build up, the chemistry, just the overall realness to it. I pretty much read it in a day and was so happy to get the opportunity to read and review. I liked The Last Thing a lot but I just adored this book. 

Ginger (h) is struggling with the Hollywood life and keeping up a charade she doesn't want to deal with anymore. She has had enough of her fiance's cheating habits and is ready to call it quits. She relies on partying and drinking A LOT.

Ginger meets Caspian (H) in Tennessee on her way to an audition and the sparks fly but Caspian isn't her type and she is confused as to why she feels drawn to him almost instantly.

Caspian is in a band and has his own problems to deal with in to keep the band together...one being his ex. When he meets Ginger he is attracted to her but there is something more, something he sees in her that most people don't. And one night starts the beginning of a blooming friendship.

I loved Caspian! I thought he meant well in everything he did and yeah he made a few mistakes along the way but he was a great guy. Ginger I wasn't so sure about at first but slowly as Caspian gets to know the real Ginger so does the reader and I liked how her personality unfolds with the book.

I'm not a big fan of  H's smoking so I loved how they decided on this pact to rid themselves of their bad habits. 

The one thing I found unique in this book is that the H and h's relationship was primarily all cyber or phone conversations and it spanned over several months time, so they really got to know each other. I just loved the build up to their relationship it was so well done (I know I already said that)! And what a terrific epilogue, I was like YES finally


Booker and Aly...Ugh I'm so mad at them. I'm interested in the next book because at this point in time I really think they are some horrible friends and people. I hope they redeem themselves.

I highly recommend!
