“Warm and funny, the first book in the Bachelor Brotherhood series reads like a great Hollywood rom-com.” –iBooks Best Books of June
Never say never…Romance isn't an option for Holly Greenwood. With her wedding planner career on the line she needs to stay focused, and that means pleasing her demanding boss, not getting distracted by her mind-alteringly hot neighbor…
Ex-Marine Kevin Vandemeer craves normalcy. Instead, he has a broken-down old house in need of a match and some gasoline, a meddling family, and the uncanny ability to attract the world's craziest women. At least that last one he can fix: he and his buddies have made a pact to swear off women, and this includes his sweetly sexy new neighbor.
After one hot night that looks a whole lot like a disaster in the light of day, Kevin and Holly are about to learn that true love doesn't play by the rules…
My Book Review:
In Only You, the first book in the Bachelor Brotherhood Series, a spinoff from the popular Wedding Pact Series, author Denise Grover Swank weaves an entertaining romantic comedy that follows the quirky romantic trials and tribulations of wedding planner Holly Greenwood and ex-Marine Kevin Vandemeer.
Set in the Kansas City suburb of Blue Springs, Missouri, Only You is an entertaining tale that easily draws the reader into Holly and Kevin's story. Holly is an event planner who wants to own her own wedding planning business. She hasn't dated in a while, and has been completely focused on her career. Kevin has returned to his hometown after spending twelve years in the Marine Corps. After his second tour in Afghanistan, he decides that it is time to change, and is ready to live a civilian life. After his most recent breakup and a string of disastrous relationships, Kevin decides to take a self-imposed six month break from women. Along with his best buddies Matt and Tyler, they form the Bachelor Brotherhood, and have sworn off all women ... that is until Kevin meets Holly, his next door neighbor, when he moves into a money pit of a house that he is going to restore and flip. Follow along as both Holly and Kevin journey down the path and discover unexpected love.
Only You is a delightful story that had a great mixture of humor, romance, drama, and unexpected twists and turns that easily kept me engaged and turning the pages. You can't help but cheer for Holly and Kevin as they struggle to overcome the crazy misunderstandings, challenges, trials and tribulations that they face while discovering that maybe they are ready for a relationship and true love. With a wonderful cast of characters, witty dialogue, humorous antics and interactions, and a sweet romantic storyline that will met your heart, Only You is a fun story that will leave you wanting more. I look forward to reading Until You, the second book in the Bachelor Brotherhood Series.
Only You is a lighthearted and fun romantic comedy tale that will keep you in stitches and leave a satisfied smile on your face.

About The Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese, which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty (in her own mind) Facebook comments and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn't lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.
