Review: You’re the Only One by E.M. Abel

Sky and Dillon became best friends bonded through struggle, heartbreak, and a promise to get away from it all.

Together they move to New York to pursue their passions. Dillon is a singer/songwriter looking for his big break while Sky wants nothing more than to become a top fashion designer.

Years later, they’re still chasing their dreams. Their friendship has endured jealousy, insecurity, disappointments, and even open relationships.

But can they survive falling in love?

MY REVIEW

You’re the Only One by E.M. Abel
Dillon and Sky
NEARLY LOST MYSELF IN THIS BOOK
5 STARS

So, this is my first E.M. Abel book and what a book to pop my cherry on. I’ve always loved rock stars and musicians, but this one is a little bit different. He’s not rich and famous. She’s not a groupie! They are best friends pursuing their dreams in the big apple. Best friends that seriously needed each other in the worst way, but took forever to figure that out!

Dillion is quite a guy. He’s actually a great guy! His heart is genuine and his motives are always intentional. He struggles every day with putting down the “right’ lyrics and finding his happy medium when it comes to his dreams, dating, and everyday life. Now, his BFF Sky seems more outgoing. She’s willing to try things out of her comfort zone, but still looks back at what could be or should be. Sometimes I wanted to grab both of them and just shake the shit outta them and say “OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE,” but no such luck… yelling at my kindle didn’t do shit!

I was pleasantly surprised at the conclusion of the book. Although there were parts that made me want to rip my hair out and parts that pulled on my heart strings, I was delighted with the outcome. This story is real… like it could happen to you! I giggled, I sobbed, and I swooned. Be prepared to feel a conundrum of emotions! I will be reading more of Ms. Abel in the future.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

E.M. Abel was born and raised a Marine Corps brat. She spent a large portion of her life moving and living in her mother’s home country, Japan. As a result, she gained independence and a unique perspective on the world. The youngest of three girls, E.M. Abel spent a lot of time alone in her room writing or sketching in her journals and dreaming up stories. Growing up, she wrote poems, short stories and articles for her high school newspaper. She also fell in love with art and discovered her deep need for self-expression.

Now, a Navy wife with two small children of her own, she still loves being creative and most of all translating her stories into novels. E.M. Abel, now referred to as E or Em by her friends and readers, can often be found with her headphones on jamming out to punk rock, in a chair getting tattooed or cooking dinner for her kids and attending gymnastics practice. No matter what she’s doing in her life, she’s always sure to do it her way.
