REVIEW – The One I Want by Chelle Sloan


As a professional football player, I had a playbook for everything on the field.

Then I retired and found out there’s no playbook for life—especially when the one you thought was perfect gets flipped upside down.

There’s no play for suddenly becoming a divorced, single dad. There’s no plan for moving your family back to the town you grew up in.

And there is definitely not a play for falling in love with the nanny.

I didn’t mean to. Betsy Sullivan just has that way about her.

It started with wanting to see her smile. It grew to needing to hear her laugh.

Before I knew it, her red lips and perfect curves were all I could think about. And I started to picture a life together – A perfect life together.

Except nothing is ever perfect. Nothing is how you envision it. I learned that hard lesson once already.

And if I’m not careful, I might find myself learning it again.

I shouldn’t want her. My head knows that. My heart doesn’t seem to care.

Neither does hers.

when Wes Taylor kisses you. It leaves you breathless and wanting more.


There is an instant attraction between Wes and Betsy, but she is new to town and he is newly separated and divorced. However, they seem to constantly run into each other and Wes’s kids love Betsy.

The chemistry, the spice, and everything in between was fantastic when it came to Wes and Betsy. I loved them both so much and love how they found each other when neither of them were looking or really expecting anything. I loved seeing the both of them find a new normal in their lives, not only as individuals but together.

The kids! I adored each of them and how they added to the story. Plus, all the other secondary characters. All of them were fantastic, well minus Cara.

If you’re looking for a small town, single dad, nanny, age gap, sports romance check this one out.
