Review: The One I Want by S.L. Scott

The One I Want is the newest release from S.L. Scott, and while it can be read as a standalone, those familiar with the author's previous release, Never Got Over You, will be happy to come across some memorable characters. I'm guessing this is an interconnected series of standalones, but I don't think it's been officially labeled a series, so there's that.
Andrew Christiansen is a no-nonsense sort of man, and his life is all about his work and his family. He doesn't have much time for much else. And then Juniper Jacobs crosses his path. The two couldn't be any more different, but by some miracle, a friendship is forged. Then becomes something more. She wants forever, but can she have that with her boss?
S.L. Scott delivers a good, entertaining read, one that I tip my hat off to particularly because Andrew is a truly nice guy regardless of his status in life. Why the recognition? Because having wealthy men act entitled, alpha, and like they're God's gift to women is ho-hum and so-not-yum. Andrew has got a good heart to go with his fine business sense.
Juni--whose name I adore for personal reasons--is just who Andrew needs in his life. Yes, they're opposites, but they balance each other out well, and don't we all need that sort of thing? Rascal gets bonus points because, hello, how could I need give those points?! The supporting characters were highly memorable as well. The One I Want receives four stars.
