The One I Want-Nancy Warren

The One I Want
Nancy Warren
Kensington Brava, May 2008,
ISBN: 9780758210456

London party girl Chloe Flynt is the grandmaster of dumping fiancés and boyfriends leaving them with their pride in tact. However, she realizes she has no skills except partying and her experiences are limited to ending three engagements. She needs a new start, but knows it must be far from London where she has quite a reputation.

She moves to Austin and opens up a personal service business as a professional break-up artist. Business is booming and she soon hires help, but her attraction to her next door neighbor Matthew Tanner goes nowhere because he has a girlfriend Brittany whose “Let’s talk it out” motto is totally wrong for him; Chloe believes let’s sex it out. However to persuade him that she is right for him will take a Texas size maneuver while she is an expatriate London swinger.

THE ONE I WANT is a terrific amusing contemporary romance that showcases the true meaning of globalization as the ultimate London party girl takes Austin for quite a swing. Matthew is a wonderful hunk of beef but it is Chloe’s antics as she ropes in her man that makes Nancy Warren’s tale enjoyable.
