R E V I E W ➠ (Not) The One by Donna Alam


Three reasons why rebound s-e-x with my hot neighbor is a very bad idea.
1.My life is already complicated enough
2.He knows I wear Batman undies (please don’t ask)
3.He’s older, sophisticated and so hot he makes me go weak at the knees
I know that’s more than three. But it still didn’t stop me.
On paper, we’re the worst kind of match.
He’s rich.
I’m . . . not. My second job is pet sitting!
He says we’re friends.
I say barely, but I do love those benefits . . .
The man rocks my world.
But he’s so not the one.
Which is unfortunate,
Because he’s also the one who got me pregnant.

RELEASE DATE: October 3, 2019

“Can you pull it out?” “That’s not the first time I’ve been asked that.” His tone is so low and rumbly, I’m not sure this was meant for my ears.

“A man either becomes a poet or an idiot when he basks in the light of a beautiful woman.”


Not my first review by author and she was a NEW to me author not too long ago but one of her books GOT ME HOOKED! This one is a 50/50 for me. It had the potential I just couldn’t connect with the heroine. Yes she was younger but it was a bit more immature that I wanted. Honestly, I am not sure…just the dynamic between them in the beginning, it felt always an inch off to me. If that makes sense, I really loved her other books so I was surprised I felt this but again, I am always honest and that’s how it felt to me. But I will say this: It’s one S-E-X-Y book, you’ll see when you read what I mean! Hands down this author is really good with the sexiness of the story!

Miranda and Harry met while she was stuck in his window ledge, literally stuck. Dang skirt! Miranda has been going through a rough break up and well, one thing leads to another and she meets this mystery man who is so sexy and handsome…one night of rebound passion couldn’t hurt. After-all she did just come off an engagement where she got screwed royally and not in the good way. One night…mmmmhm! A night that eventually leads to a POSITIVE PREGNANCY TEST!

The characters were different in it’s own. Miranda is 23 and still young, at times very immature and just not sure which direction her life is going. Harry is sophisticated, well off, smart, handsome…basically a MAN she would dream of having one day. He is definitely a DIRTY gentleman *sizzling* but where they go from the whole her being pregnant, is an interesting turn of events. It’s like a missed-opportunity that keeps rolling around them. Everything seems to be AGAINST them, which makes them question their own sanity and choices But maybe she can turn that NOT into IS?! p.s. I really enjoyed the ending portion, around 75% and up, something clicked for me and it picked up and I was glued to it. Rather then dwelling how I couldn’t connect…I guess it just took me a little longer to in this one!

I would like to say that, bring the tissues for the conclusion..I…I was left speechless.
