Avantae Sovern and Cameron Graydove are friends with benefits and nothing more. Their sex life is extremely ebullient, but Avantae can’t help thinking it’s time to break things off with Cameron. Unexplained feelings and memories have Avantae convinced that the one man meant for her is waiting in the wings, and she intends to be available when he arrives.

His younger brother has fallen for a woman who is too old for him and Peyton Grayhawk is not happy about it. His plan to get rid of Avantae gets complicated the moment Peyton realizes who she is. The void Peyton had felt his entire life was replaced with a feeling of déjà vu, the second he sees Avantae. For longer than a lifetime, Peyton has been waiting to be reunited with Avantae, even though he doesn’t understand how it could be possible.

Causing problems in the Grayhawk family was the last thing Avantae wanted, but there was no way she was spending another moment out of Peyton’s arms. If Peyton chose his family over her, Avantae didn’t know how she would handle losing him again.

I fell in love with the Grayhawk brothers in the Long Line of Love series and each new story only reinforces that feeling. Peyton and Avantae have a history that is not your everyday love story, so readers can’t fight the building curiosity over what will happen next. There are twists and turns to this story that I never saw coming and I enjoyed the ride. Cameron wasn’t exactly let down easily, so my heart went out to him. If Marilyn Lee is as kind as I think, Cameron will have his own story, because I’m not ready to say goodbye to him yet. I was touched by the affection Peyton felt for his brothers and the lengths he would go to just to keep them happy. Being in love is supposed to be fun and easy, but poor Peyton’s relationship with Avantae is far from easy. Regardless of the hurdles the couple encounters, they overcome them all. If the loyalty and family pride doesn’t bring you to your knees, then the passionate love scenes will. Only One Love is a beautiful reminder of how you just can’t stop destiny.
