Book: No One But You
Author: Alexandra Silva
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 27th July 2018
They say bad things happen in threes…
I made a mistake. I kissed the right boy, but married the wrong man.
They were friends. Best friends. Until my life fell apart.
Something was stolen and then something was given in its place.
I had so much in my grasp, maybe it was too much because everything started slipping.
Only one thing remained the same.
My first crush.
My first kiss.
My first love.
They say you can’t miss what you’ve never had…
But I swear I had her. At least for one kiss.
I left the right girl and tried to replace her with the wrong woman.
It didn’t work because I still missed her.
I promised my best friend I’d always look after his little sister. And our other best friend promised to never break her heart.
We have circled each other all our lives but our time never came.
We’ve never had our moment until now.

4 out of 5 (very good)
No One But You is the debut novel by Alexandra Silva, and amongst other things, talks about the painful subject of stillbirth, and how it affects everyone - not just the mother.
I felt a bit lost during the prologue for various reasons, and couldn't understand if I was supposed to feel sympathy for her or him. It did become clear, but the jump from the prologue to the first chapter was a bit of a leap. Not to worry though, as it all sorted out in the end.
This is a long story, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how it could be shortened, so just stick with it and know you've got a tale to sink your teeth into. It is a (sort of) second chance romance. Sort of because they only share one kiss, but are forever there for the other. Some questions are left unanswered, but on the whole, this tale is wrapped up nicely. I would like to see Dory and Jake's story, plus Willow, but that's just me being greedy.
With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, I thoroughly enjoyed this story and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
