Danielle Allen only gets better and better. Reading The One was like watching the best of the best reality television shows unfold in your mind. Except--her writing is a million moons better than the screenwriters on those television shows. Danielle creates characters that you instantly love and cheer for. In The One you meet Zoe, an independent, no nonsense, driven female, who isn't afraid to speak her mind. She's smart and has a deep love for poetry *a girl after my own heart!* I might have a [...]
This book is differentunlike anything I've ever read, unlike anything I've ever written. Focusing on a love story, the reality aspect of reality TV, and the way media tries to put us in a box, The One is one of my favorite books of all time. Am I biased because I wrote it? Absolutely! Haha!Hope you enjoy! :)
For the most part I enjoyed this. I've never watched The Bachelor, but I gather this book is exactly like that.So while I loved the chemistry between Julian and Zoe, I hated that he kissed other women. Yes it's unavoidable on a show like that but I wanted him to step up and stand by how he felt.Really liked the ending though.
Spoiler Free Review4 STAR READ!Genre: Romance (Interracial romance) 'His smile grew with each step I took and that smile was everything. He was officially the most attractive man I’d ever seen in my life.' After completely freaking out and not taking the Bar exam as planned, Zoe Jordan flees sunny California going back home to the east coast for an extended visit with her parents. Zoe's best friend Koko scored a job as a makeup artist on a prime time reality dating show titled The One, to whic [...]
A WOC POV!!!! I thoroughly enjoyed Zoe's narration, she was an incredibly socially aware, responsible, and independent woman. I also liked the "love interest (Julian)'s" character. I finished this in one sitting and I did really like it! However, I found the story itself fell a little short for me. I felt the dialogue didn't flow. I didn't begin writing this intending it to become a full-blown review, so I haven't really formulated a solid opinion. In short, I loved the characters, but not the w [...]
Zoe Jordan is going through a quarter-life crisis. She's not even told her mother, who happens to be an attorney, she's mastering her fight or flight reflex on monumental moments like taking the bar exam. Her life is a bit unrecognizable, even to her, when she unknowingly discovers her best friend, Koko, has signed her up to be a contestant on her least favorite television show, The One. But unbeknownst to both of them, Zoe was actually chosen as one of the final twelve.When Zoe finds out the ba [...]
This book totally sucked me in. I'm a HUGE fan of this author. Even though I haven't read all of her books I've absolutely loved the ones I have. They are full of sass and inspirational messages for woman and their self esteem, worth and respect. I'm not even a fan of reality TV but I was captivated with the behind the scenes of the whole thing. Zoe was a truly inspiring woman, who stayed true to herself while being immersed in a totally superficial environment. I can truly see how this type of [...]
Danielle Allen, were you once a contestant on The Bachelor??? This author did an amazing job of making you feel like you're getting an up close and personal experience, behind the scenes of one of America's most notorious reality dating shows. From the mix of contestants, to the scripted scenarios, the rules, the cheesy sneaky host and the drool worthy bachelor, The One had it all. It's easy to see why Julian was so interested in Zoe from early on. I absolutely loved her! Much like the author, Z [...]
Danielle has blessed me with another book boyfriend and his name is Julian Winters. The One is packed with stomach-flipping tingles. Her writing is flawless and engaging leaving me swiping my kindle for more.I’ve loved Danielle’s brilliant storytelling since her debut novel, Back to Life, but The One is her greatest yet. Only causing me to crave more from her. She transported right in the middle of a dating reality show and I didn’t want to leave.Julian is a swoon-worthy hero to say the le [...]
This book was really good! Could be the timing for me but I absolutely loved it. From start to finish it had my attention, I didn't want to put it down at all! This author is new to me but will def read more from her. The "bachelor" setting was intriguing and how the MCs handled it was great. I enjoyed some of the secondary characters, which you can imagine there were alot of crazy ladies in that type of setting, all around great reading experience.
I read this book on Kindle Unlimited.This is Zoe and Julian's story. I love romances that involve reality shows and this romance is based on such a show.I really enjoyed the story. I thought it was romantic, heartbreaking and tender.This story is definitely worth a read!
This was not the one for me. It was well written, but just didn't feel compelling. The mc's were a little too perfect. I ended up skimming about 60% of it.
MY RATING: 4.5 STARS Review to follow soon the finale portion kicked my rating from 4 to 4.5. I love a man of his word!!!
I enjoy the read, the personality of Zoe was awesome, authentic, educated even when the girls were f bitches. Reality shows are not what everybody thinks.
I'll start right off saying that I'd like to give this book 10 out of 5 stars!!! Coming fresh off The Bachelor season finale I was ready to get my hands on The One!!! I couldn't wait! I fact I think I've been bugging Danielle for a few weeks now with how excited I was!! Let me tell you, I was BLOWN away!!! Right from the beginning Zoe was amazing!! She was sweet, sassy, kind hearted, but more importantly very sure of herself! She's my kind of female lead character! And then enters Zoe's best fri [...]
WOW!! I didn't know what to expect going into this story, but once I started, I was hooked. I literally read it overnight :)I am not a big fan of these reality dating shows, but Julian and Zoe had me changing my mind :) Zoe's best friend got her on the show as payback, but little did she know, this was the best thing to happen to Zoe. She's dealing with some insecurities regarding her life and got scared. She was mad at her friend, but decided to go through with it. She figures she can get picke [...]
Ms. Allen is a feminist first and foremost, and I LOVE that about her. I love that she showed the prejudice we face as women in a society of 'reality' TV, and the crazy male-predominated jobs that seem to want to shove out the female gender. I love that she didn't skimp on the hard stuff and in doing so she fleshed out the story to a level that had me staying up until 2am reading just because I was so invested. I love how she took what might be considered a cliched premise and knocked it on its [...]
*Copy received from author for review purposes.*The One was an amazing book. It drew me in from the start. Even though I don't watch reality TV, I was sucked in and hooked.This was read in one sitting, on a Saturday, in my bed. I DID NOT MOVE.A swoon-worthy hero, a strong-minded heroine, and a variety of side characters that will make you want to laugh, scream, and probably throat-punch at least one of them.Oh and there's a super steamy scene that will make a non-smoker want a cigarette!For real [...]

I don't even know where to start! I LOVED THIS STORY SO MUCH! Zoe Jordan is my hero, she's strong, she's smart, she stands up for herself and others, and she is hilarious! If you're a fan of The Bachelor and other reality dating shows, you're going to love this story. If you're not a fan, YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS STORY! And don't get me started on Julian Wintersat man is sex on a stick, with a heavy side of melt you into a puddle and make you swoon with his words. The chemistry between Zoe and [...]
Oh so GOOD!!!Five big stars for The One!!!Have you ever been in a reading funk? Well I was and I'm so thankful that this is the book I choose to get out of it. It had everything you want in a book. Strong characters, great flow, a little angst, and a whole lot of goodness. Zoe Jordan is smart, funny and true to herself.Julian Winters is handsome, deep and also smart.Their connection was felt from the instant they interact. And we get to follow their journey and what a ride we take!! I would reco [...]
Is I liked it,wasn't happy about the Insta love thing but it was to be expected with how this was a version of the bachelor reality show but over all it was cute and sweet. Could have done without the heroine talking to herself so much did a lot of skimming The ending of this book was soooo sweet and had me on edge to see who he as going to choose.
I know the whole concept it's a little silly but damn! it was a great book.

Wow, wow, wow! I will start by saying I love Danielle Allen's books. I haven't read them all, but the ones that I have read (Work Song and The Heartache Series) I have loved as much as I loved this one! Her stories are fresh and out of the ordinary when it comes to the storylines.This story takes place in a reality TV setting like The Bachelor. Zoe's best friend Koko is hired to work as a make-up artist. Zoe finds reality TV shows distasteful and relentlessly teases Koko about it. In an attempt [...]
My 4 star review of The OneI really enjoyed this book from Danielle Allen. I loved her book Work Song, so I knew I was in for a great story, and great writing right off the bat. This story was genuinely like watching the Bachelor, only in readable format. The cat fights, the romance, and of course, the drama.I really loved Zoe; she is the heroine in this Bachelor-esque story. She was confident- which I can always count on Danielle’s heroines to be strong and confident. She was definitely sassy [...]
4-4.5 starsMy first book by Danielle Allen, and I really enjoyed it! I won this title in a Facebook contest after hearing a lot of buzz about it. Thankfully, The One lived up to the hype. Through a series of unusual events, main character Zoe finds herself as a contestant on The One, a reality dating show similar to The Bachelor. Admittedly, I haven't watched more than one season of the latter because I want to have real faith in a relationship I've invested time in as a viewer; frankly, love as [...]
First, let me say I LOVED this book. Seriously. Loved every second. The only part I hated was that it ended!Danielle Allen wrote a sweet and sexy story that had me anxiously waiting to see how everything panned out. There were points I had to put the book down because I was terrified of what was to come. But because the story was so addicting, I couldn't help myself and tore through the pages.I loved the heroine. She's strong and stays true to herself no matter how much it might break her heart.
