Baseball romances aren’t normally my thing, but this one was amazing!
Childhood friends to lovers - something people love, and is shown numerous times in other books and/or movies. A storyline that usually makes for a smile, but this one.... THIS. This was absolutely amazing.
With each new story, I think... will it be as good as the others? Can it grasp my attention as well as the earlier reads? It sure did!
One again, a story that I can’t wait to re-read over again, and see how the rest of the series goes! Kudos.
The One For Me
One of the best books I have ever read. The story is loving and sometimes tearful but always fantastic with a happily ever after. Corinne Michaels has become one of my favorite authors!
Angsty Friends to Lovers
The One for Me is Sean’s story. All the Arrowood brothers returned to to Sugarloaf after their father died. Each brother has to spend 6 months living on their family farm.. It’s Now Sean’s turn. Sean is a professional baseball player. Devney is his best friend from childhood. They both left Suagrloaf for college, but only Devney came back to live. Now that Sean is back in town he wants to see if there more to their relationship than just friendship. Devney is scared to take that first step into becoming a couple. She doesn’t want to lose her friend when he leaves, and she knows that he will leave. I enjoyed watching their friendship grow and expand to more. There were some emotional parts to this story that took me by surprise, but I absolutely loved the story. I can’t wait to read Jacob’s story.
Y’all this is off the charts amazing!!! Sean is my new absolute favorite!! This whole series is remarkable but he is my favorite brother!!!
This can be a standalone.. but all the brothers together fits read them all!
Let me describe how this book made me feel. Imagine me holding a piece of paper out in front of me. Now imagine me crumpling that piece of paper between my hands. And NOW imagine the awesome author Corrine Michaels taking that piece of paper from my hands and smoothing out every wrinkle and every fold then hands it to me with a smile and says “Sorry…” That is what this book did to my heart. So many ups and downs. A friends-to-lovers story that beat me up and put me back together again.
Sean and Devney are childhood best friends. Over the years, they had lost their connection. Now Sean is back in Sugarloaf. A place he swore he would never come back to. The benefit of returning to Sugarloaf? Seeing Deveny. Theirs was a friendship that was unconditional. They have each other in any type of scenario and that’s what is so beautiful about their relationship. I loved everything about it. How deep and caring and unconditional it was. Yes, they had their rough patches but through it all they always had each other’s back and best interest at hear.
This book may have played with my heart but gave me all the feels and made me fall more in love with the Arrowood brothers and the fine citizens of Sugarloaf.
Another fabulous read from Corinne Michaels.
Another fabulous read from Corinne Michaels. A sexy, swoony friends-to-lovers romance with a whole bunch of feels. I’ve loved every book in this series so far, and this one is no exception.
Sean and Devney have been best friends since forever. They have a solid foundation, so the hesitation is understandable. But I love that Sean goes for it, knowing that they have something special. Devney has had a rather traumatic past, and doesn’t want to lose one of the most important people in her life.
Their journey is filled with love and laughter, heartache and hope. It’s beautiful.
Do yourself a favor and read this book, read this whole series.
Everything I love about romance books!

I'm going to be honest and say that when Corinne said "Sean. Is. Mine! He's my favorite of the Arrowood brother's and I'm not going to share." I laughed and thought to myself "yeah yeah sure he is. You say this every time. But okay."..... then I read his story. She's right! Sean is the best of the Arrowood's and you can't have him. Okay, we'll all share. HA! I adored Sean and Devney's story and made my heart burst. There's swoon, sweetness, suspense and secrets. Everything I love!
But in all seriousness, I loved this story from beginning to end. I honestly don't know if I've ever read a BEST friends to lovers story. I've read friends to lovers, but never best friends that are in complete denial about their feelings for each other. Their romance was just perfection.
In classic Corinne fashion, she will obliterate your heart and then slowly put it back together. I will say that I actually saw the heartbreak and plot twists coming. I buddy read this with my co-blogger Taylor (read her review here) and she didn't see it coming at all! So I wouldn't call the plot predicable in the least.
I have had the worst time reading in 2020 but with every book Corinne has released this year has been addictive and I flew through each and everyone. THE ONE FOR ME is the longest book in the Arrowood Brother series and I could have read their story forever! If you're looking for a sweet, slow-burn love story, with a ton of heart and soul, then look no further. Haven't started the Arrowood series yet? Pick up COME BACK FOR ME or FIGHT FOR ME now. Go meet the Arrowood's.... you won't regret it!
Sean and Deveney--Perfection!!
The Arrowood Brothers have absolutely buried themselves deep within my heart, and Sean only deepen my love for them!! What an amazing set of brothers!! The One for Me the one for me took me on one of the most beautiful rides I have read in a long time. Sean and Deveney are absolutely perfect together. Their road to their happily ever after was not paved with roses, but these two once they realized they were it for each other, although they took a lot of convincing to get there, esp. Deveney, but her hesitation was completely understandable, these two fought for each other and their love. Honestly, Corinne Michaels could not have chosen a more perfect title for their story. They truly were the each other's other half, since only Sean could make Deveney whole, and only Deveney could make Sean whole.
The One for Me is such a beautifully told story and Corinne Michaels' writing will have you swooning over this friends to lovers romance, but most especially over Sean, from the moment you open the book. And what a fighter Deveney is!! She has been through so much and she has made plenty of mistakes, but she owns it all. And like Deveney, although he is now a famous baseball player, Sean has been thrown many punches in his life that would have destroyed and hardened a lesser man, but not Sean. And let me just say that I love Austin. What a great kid he is!!
So, if you are looking for a story with wonderful characters, a small town romance, good friends and family, and witty dialogue, The One for Me is the perfect read. Corinne Michaels has far exceeded herself in telling Sean and Deveney's story. Not only did we get Sean and Deveney, but we also got to catch up with our other favorite characters from this series and others in The One for Me. I cannot wait for Jacob's story. Bravo, Corinne Michaels on yet another fantastic read!!!
Thank God for stubborn men!!
I loved this book so much. I’m so glad Sean did not give up on their relationship. I loved their chemistry. This book had me crying. I loved seeing some characters from previous series.
Sean is the new one
This book is everything! It had me wanting to yell and laugh! The doubts and feelings that went on in this book, anybody can relate to! It was a really good book. You MUST read it! I think Sean is my new favorite!
