Once upon a time, Monroe Sinclair was Brodan Adair's best friend, but now he's a stranger and one of Hollywood's leading men...

It took Monroe Sinclair eighteen years to return home to Ardnoch after a fateful night that devastated her friendship with Brodan Adair. She fled her unrequited love for him, as well as her difficult family life, and tried not to look behind her. Only a daughter's guilt could lure her back to the Highlands and the assumption that Brodan Adair rarely ever sets foot in their hometown. She can handle seeing the rest of the Adairs so long as she can avoid her ex-best friend and the only man she's ever loved.

Nothing is more important to Brodan than family, and only his demons have the power to keep him from them. For years, acting was something he was lucky enough to be good at, yet it wasn't his priority—Ardnoch and his siblings were. But when a ghost from his past returned out of the blue, Brodan tried to outrun its haunting, taking him further and further from home. When exhaustion finally forces him back to the family fold, the last thing he wants is to encounter another ghost. But that's exactly what Monroe Sinclair has been to him. When a promise to his nephew obliges Brodan to work with Monroe, it forces them to face their past. The explosive connection that has always existed between them resurrects truths long buried. Yet, just when they might be on the brink of a second chance, the ghost from Brodan's past finally catches up to him and threatens not just their happiness, but their very lives.

Monroe + Brodan

They used to be the bestest of friends from age five until 19.
But things happened - like Monroe falling in love with Brodan and so much more.
Brodan left their small town to become a famous Hollywood star and Monroe left too.
And now we all hate each other.
But Monroe is back to care for her grumpy and ungrateful mother. And guess who's back too? Brodan is tired of Hollywood. He needs to be with family for a while - or forever.
They never stopped caring for each other - but they also haven't stopped hating each other...

Let the fun times begin...

What will happen with Monroe + Brodan??
Will we get our happily ever after??

Oy! The final story in this amazing series!
(Don't worry - we're not leaving this world yet. We already meet the darlings from the first book in the Highlands Trilogy in this book - a lot!)

I loved reading this.
Even though I hate going back in time in books. No idea why I hate it. Probably because I want my people to get their happily ever after now and to not dig around in their pasts so much and so often.
But then as soon as I start reading, I always love those back-in-time chapters. I just hate the ideo of them. I know - I'm weird.
Anyhoo - I loved this story. I love this whole family and the location and just everything.

We get a super adorable and heartbreaking second chancy thing here. Not really second chance, because they were never really a couple. I hated how those two wasted so many years. They're 37 now! They could've celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary soon! Ugh. But we get this second chance - even if it takes them a while ... and we love being witness to everything! All the grumpy and adorable and heartbreaking and sweet and exciting and sparky and sexy and dangerous moments.

Like I already said in my reviews for the first books - I could totally imagine this as an amazing Netflix show. We already basically 'see' everything Sam writes about. She describes everything so beautifully. The people, the places... everything. I really need to see this on the screen!

From the covers to the final words ... this series is just beautiful!

ONLY YOU was the perfect Adair finale!
An adorable and funny and sweet and heartbreaking and sexy love story full of love and loss and family and hope and just everything good!
Run to your nearest bookdealer for your own Brodan - this one is MINE!
