my one and only by kristan higgins

Summary: Divorce attorney Harper James can't catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister's destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she's being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancĂ© back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.
Harper can't help that Nick has come blazing back into her life in all of his frustratingly appealing, gorgeous architect glory. But in Nick's eyes, Harper's always been the one. If they can only get it right this time, forever might be waiting—just around the bend.

I was hooked on this book from the first page but i also knew what to expect since i have read all the others she has published. absolutely loved the ending . Harper is the girl you just want to love. She comes off as abrasive at times because she can be a control freak due to her upbringing and you want to help her even when you know she does not need it. You just want to help because you can .  Her and Nick had a rocky start that resulted in a divorce that should never have happened. They both made wrong choices but he should have been there when she needed him most and she should have been more understanding.  They have both loved each other for more than a decade but Nick had remarried and divorced since which came as a shock . No one was able to have the same chemistry or bond that they shared with each other.  she had not seen him in over a decade though and had to put on a brave face when she ran into him again, her stepsister was marrying his step brother. Talk about small world. When Willa need a job(stepsister), she went to a business that nick just happened to run, talk about coincidences , You can say it was destiny for them to be back together, i think so even though she had a steady bf for 2 1/2 years and when they broke it off after seeing nick she was not heartbroken. If that does not tell you they did not belong together than I don't know what does.
