A sweet and romantic comedy about a love triangle between Gemma, Max and Addison. Gemma and Max are an item but in comes Addison, Gemma’s best friend, trying to claim Max as her own.
In her bid to to win Max, Addison arranges a double date with one of Max’s friend and Gemma. Unbeknownst to Addison, Gemma and Max are getting closer as they all spend time together.
And as all good love story ends, Gemma and Max end up together. In the end, The One I Want is sweet, sparkly romance and really enjoyable. Sure, it’s predictable and some of it gets a little ridiculous but it managed to make me go: “Awwww... that was cute” when Gemma and Max end up together. I love Jennifer Echols and I can’t wait for more sparkly romance story next.

Having read many crime stories in secondary school, this is one of my favourite. I like the mystery plot and the characters are fully developed. There’s also a lot of humor thrown in for good measure. The ending is good and justice prevails. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it and recommend it to mystery lovers.
