Chloe Flynt has always gone for the wrong guys and she has three broken engagements to show for it. Her friends tell Chloe that she has a niche for breaking up and that she should start her won business. Chloe agrees that is a great idea. She moves from one side of the pond to the other— moving from London, England to Austin, Texas. There she starts up her own business called The Breakup Artist. Chloe’s next door neighbor and landlord is Matthew Tanner. Matthew embodies perfectly the description of a red-blooded, sexy, American cowboy. Matthew grows suspicious when an envelope with Chloe’s name on it, containing one thousand dollars, is dropped off in his mail slot. He wonders what type of business Chloe is conducting and if it is even legal. So Matthew decides to follow Chloe but Matthew ends up getting more than he bargained for as he starts falling for Chloe. Now all Matthew wants to do is get closer to Chloe and show her what Texas men are all about.
Chloe runs into a gal named Stephanie Baxter, who is about to get married to the wrong guy. Chloe offers Stephanie her assistance in breaking up with her fiancé. Stephanie can’t afford to pay Chloe so in exchange Chloe offers Stephanie a job working as her receptionist. Stephanie has another problem. A mysterious guy keeps following Stephanie. Who is he and what does he want with her?
What a wonderful, enduring romance novel The One I Want turned out to be. Chloe has a great quality about her. I loved the way she talks in her British accent. Matthew just oozes sex appeal, wearing a pair of jeans like they were a second pair of skin. The chemistry between Chloe and Matthew was hot with a capital H. I like the fact that whenever Chloe was around Matthew didn’t know whether to kiss her or strangle her for just being Chloe. You can bet that Nancy Warren had a lot of fun writing The One I Want because it was one of the best romance novels I have read in a while. I could not get enough of The One I Want and now I want more.
