In this charming and exciting women’s fiction novel, You're the One That I Want, Giovanna Fletcher explores the complicated relationship between three friends—Maddy, her fiancé Rob, and their best friend Ben.
Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob—the man she’s about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben—best man and the best friend anyone could ever have. And that’s the problem. Because if it wasn’t Rob waiting for her at the altar, there’s a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive, Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right?
Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben, and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make, but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it... Romantic, suspenseful, and a whole lot of fun, You’re the One That I Want is a great read about friendship, love, and the decisions that we make.
All the feels!
I don't even know how to review this book without spoiling it. I think even just revealing my emotions would be a spoiler... So beware. This isn't your typical love story, or your typical angsty triangle. It starts off really sweet. Some parts almost bordered on cheesy. But it got intense quick. Although the author has an easy, smooth writing style, it's not the easiest book to read. It's frustrating as hell. So if you don't like books like that, steer clear. I definitely felt all the feels. The happiness and that gut wrenching pain. The only way I can think to describe it is bittersweet. I felt like the storyline could have been developed a little more...it felt a little rushed at times. And, while I liked the characters, I didn't love them. Overall a good read though. 3.5-4 stars.
