Leyla Brand has one perfect day in her life: the day she meets rock singer Arran Lake at the Bele Chere Festival in Asheville. They have so much in common, Leyla is sure they are soulmates and will have a future together.
The very next morning, when Arran receives the call to hit the big time, he vanishes into the world of California rock and roll to become an international star, leaving her behind. Only a few phone calls keep them in touch — until his phone is disconnected. After that, all she has of him is every new song that hits the charts.
Five years later, she gets a message on the Internet from an unfamiliar address. Someone wants to know if she’s the Leyla of Bele Chere. Should she open that door and discover who this might be? Who else could it be? And if it is Arran, why does he want to contact her now, after all this time? Will he just break her heart again?
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
That Girl’s The One I Love by Alana Lorens is a rockstar romance.
Leyla Brand had a huge crush on Arran Lake, the lead singer of the Copper Moon band. She gathered her courage to ask him out but he beat her to it. They spent an incredible night together but the next day he was gone. He promised her a lot but eventually, it seemed that he forgot about her. Leyla after a while moved on with her life and made her dream of writing come true. Six years later a message on Facebook
came to shook her peaceful life. Arran was looking for her but she didn’t know if it was a good idea to continue what started that fateful day.
It’s a short romantic story about two people with dreams. It’s a very sweet story with a combination of insta-love and second chance. It seems a bit fast-paced, especially where it describes Leyla’s life after meeting him. The main focus of the book is their love, there is great detail on the days they met and their feelings. The characters were great, they were down-to-earth and very likable.
My two favorite parts were their first meeting and the second both were truly romantic.
In conclusion, it’s a cute story perfect for a vacation read. I will rate it with 3.5 stars.
