Can Blade break through Lacinda’s angry barriers? Will she ever see him as anything more than a player?
Note: this is an adult book and contains mature situations
This is a spicy quick read for anyone that is looking for a fun escape. I read this book really quickly and all in one shot. It was more like a novella to me. I approach novellas and novels differently. When I am reading a shorter story, I am looking more for instant gratification and plot/action, and less on character development and nuances. This book delivers on that completely!
Lacinda wins a trip on a singles cruise. I really liked Lacinda and I felt like I understood her more than I expected to. Kay Dee Royal does a good job of explaining the characters motivations and emotions. I liked how she was a little slow to open up, but then once she did, she gave herself over completely.
As for secondary characters, I really liked Blade but his friend, that helped him plan everything, really got on my nerves. She just seemed to think that people were puppets. But that was really my only drawback with One Plus One. Other than her, I really enjoyed this book.
One Plus One is like taking a vacation. It is a fantastical escape. it is not deep or extremely detailed, but it was a lot of fun and a good read.

Good Morning Michelle – thanks so much for the kind review – I’m so glad you liked Blade and Lacinda’s story.
I’ve thought about giving Maizy her own story, and sorry you two didn’t hit it off. She kept insisting on taking over while I wrote…so perhaps I, too, became her puppet:) I know she played a bigger part than I first anticipated;)
Sarah – thank you so much for stopping in – and I hope you have a chance to read L & B’s story:)
Kim – Hi, thanks for stopping in…and I know exactly what you mean about a spicy, quick book, especially after something as deep and dark as a dystopian;)
Happy New Year Everyone!
