Series: Only You by Elle Thorpe 📕Reviewed📕

Title: Only the Positive
Series: Only You #1
Author: Elle Thorpe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: September 20, 2018


I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from
the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.
All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me.
With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar.
Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I
also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.

I had to give this book 5 stars due to the different writing style and the different story this author takes you through. At first, I thought yes this is just another bar hopping love story with a man-whore and girl that didn’t know what she wanted. But this book is sooo much more.

Reese is hiding from her past. She made a huge mistake and is running. When she gets a job at a bar and meets her new boss Low it is instant chemistry. But these two decide to be friends. I loved the banter between everyone in this story but these two are just wonderful.

Low is a man-whore and doesn’t hide it. He is bi and will go with whatever is going on that night. But when he meets Reese something inside him just clicks and she is all he wants. But when he gets news that will/could change his life forever he decides that she is better off without him.

This story is NOT your usual love story. I loved that, it was so refreshing to read something new and with characters that took real-life problems and stuck with it. Reese may have run from her past life, but she was not running from her love for Low. And Low knew he would have a life of struggle and new that he needed help. And yes sometimes I did not like his choices BUT he always found his way back to Reese. That is love.

Great read!
