You’re The One That I Want by Giovanna Fletcher

      Published by Penguin in May 2014

“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 any two people ever had.

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 turned round and 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…”


Firstly I’d like to thank the publishers for sending me this book to read and give an honest review. I had previously read this author’s debut novel (review here) and I was keen to find out if her second book would be as good as the first.

I’m pleased to say it definitely was!

The storyline centered around three friends – Maddy, Ben and Rob. The beginning of the book took me back to their childhood and explained how they became friends in the first place. I took a liking to each one of them for different reasons and as they grew up on the pages in front of me I felt like I knew them all personally.

The authors writing style was comfortable and easy to read, it enabled me to be pulled into the storyline in a big way, I just couldn’t put the book down – just one more page always turned into about fifty more pages!

I was so conflicted about the love triangle, I simply couldn’t decide which way I wanted Maddy to go. My opinion literally changed from page to page and I hoped something would happen to help me make up my mind once and for all. Sadly, for me, that didn’t happen so I was left undecided even after I’d finished.

This was an addictive read that pulled me in and wouldn’t let go!
