Two New York editors
learn that their office feud and love-hate feelings could be the perfect way to
find the love that they both have been looking for—that is if they don’t kill
each other first.
Staci Cortés is a
dating columnist at a popular New York magazine and trying her best to get her
love life in order. Greg McAdams—the one person in the world that Staci cannot
stand—is a writer for a metropolitan men’s magazine, the son of her boss, and
sits right across the hall from her. So when Staci is promoted to a brand new
online magazine venture with a new co-editor she is beyond ecstatic, until she
learns that her new partner is none other than Greg.
As the two struggle
to get along and work together on their coop-editorial pieces, they both
realize that there is more to the other than meets the eye. A charming story
about forgiveness, compromise, and the ups-and-downs of an in-office



Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Talk about a true love/hate relationship. The One and Only gives us Staci and Greg. Staci does everything in her power to annoy Greg, she hates him for a past indiscretion. Greg just kinda rolls with the punches. Neither see that they hate Staci harbors is turning into love.

Greg is super swoon worthy. He may have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but he’s down to earth. He understands money can’t buy love and happiness. You will fall hard and quick for this sexy and sweet man. Staci took a but more for me to warm up to her. She’s abrasive, and a lot of the times way too self absorbed. You can understand some of where she’s coming from, but it may take a bit to start liking her. These two together though? Complete fireworks. Their chemistry can be seen from a mile away.

Even though I wanted to slap Staci a few times, I thoroughly enjoyed her and Greg’s story. I hope to see them again in the future!

“Why aren’t you dressed?” I said, holding out my hand up to
his chest.
“Because I was hot. Am I making you feel uncomfortable?” He
flashed a knowing smile.
“No.” You sure are.
“I think I have a fever.” 
He walked closer and my hand went to his forehead, which
felt cold to the touch.
“You seem okay,” I said as our eyes met. 
His hand goes to my waist, and I knew that look he was
giving me. 
“If I didn’t know any better, I would say you’re trying to
kiss me.” I arched a brow.
“I am.” He smiled wickedly, waiting for me to move forward,
but I forced myself to step back instead. 
“Not a chance, McAdams,” I said, walking away from him.
“Not that I’m not happy to see you … but why are you here?”
“I wanted to check out where you lived,” I mused. “To see if
your place was bigger than mine.”
“Aha! That’s the Staci I know.” His crooked grin came out
full force. “But, um … not to see if I’m okay?” 
I turned around to find him now stretched out on his white
couch, his hair resting on top of his closed eyes. I had the urge to allow my
hand to wander through his soft strands of hair and grip them tight … only
without malice.
Keep it together, Staci. This is Greg, the man you
Only it didn’t feel like that anymore. Maybe it wasn’t a
good idea to come over. It wasn’t until now I realized how much more enthralled
I was with Greg. It was an attraction and nothing else. Perfectly reasonable
when you worked in close proximity with someone. 
“Yeah. Whatever. That, too,” I said, and Greg chuckled.
“Do you mind if I bring this into the kitchen?” I hold up
the restaurant bag. “I brought you chicken soup. Want some?”
“Only if you will feed it to me.” He smiled, and I had the
urge to roll my eyes at him.
“Not a chance, McAdams.”
