You're Still The One

You're Still the One - Review & Excerpt Tour banner

You're Still The One by Rachel Harris was a sweet story. Arabella Stone has been in love with Charlie Tucker since she was a braces wearing teen and he became one of her father's artists. Charlie doesn't really become invested until she flirts with him at a party, but doesn't tell him who she is. At that same party Arabella's dad makes a deal with Charlie to sit on the board and donate to the charity he is starting up if Charlie takes care of Arabella for the summer. While not thrilled to do it, Charlie agrees and is surprised to find out his mystery woman is none other than Arabella. Watching Charlie try to resist her was amusing and this story was well written. The only issue I had with it is it glossed over any sex. There doesn't have to be a whole lot of detail, but it went straight from minimal foreplay to after in the story. That bugged me because I like the intimate connection that tends to develop between the characters as they explore each other sexually. Other than that one complaint the story was well written, funny, and engaging. I was hooked from page 1 and didn't want to put it down until I was finished. I give this book a solid 4 stars and do recommend it to romance lovers.

Heart fluttering like a hummingbird, Ella picked her way across the stones, the steps still warm from the day’s brutal sun. She lowered herself, one concrete step at a time, until the tepid water lapped against the undersides of her breasts. She gasped at the sensation.
If she’d thought the biker bar felt decadent, this was positively wicked. Never in her wildest dreams had Arabella considered checking skinny-dipping off her list in this way, with neighbors potentially watching, and a naked Charlie Tucker as a wingman. 
He tensed as she glided across the pool, the muscles of his back like chiseled marble. She’d love to believe it was because of her, that he longed to touch her as badly as she wanted to be touched. But she knew him well enough to know that even if he did, he’d never act on the desire. Not unless his guard was down.
So, Arabella did what any self-respecting woman in her situation would do. She dipped her hands into the water on either side of her body, gently cupping them so as not to make any sudden waves. She grinned as she bent her knees for leverage…and then, stifling a laugh, swung her hands high and up into the air.
Charlie cursed as water rained, falling like a sheet over his head. His neck snapped back, flicking his unruly dark hair out of his eyes, and his shoulders raised to meet his ears.
Immediately, Arabella started backpedaling.
Fans of romantic comedies, and anyone who swam with boys in high school, knew what came next. She’d awoken the sleeping bad-boy giant, or so she hoped, but somehow, even as she kicked away as hard as she could, she couldn’t excite the proper trepidation. She wanted this, wanted him to come after her.
But she had to make the chase look realistic.
“Oh, you think you’re funny, don’t you?” Charlie’s smile was as big and dangerous as a bloodthirsty alligator, and Ella squealed as he took his first looming step. “You better run, sweet girl. It’s on now.”
Arabella kicked her feet, shooting water in his face. “Bring it, Tucker!”
Please, please, bring it, Tucker.

    You're Still the One - Review & Excerpt Tour Teaser  
 About YOU’RE STILL THE ONE: Love is one dare neither of them can take… Arabella Stone, Nashville’s darling, is eager to shuck her prim-and-proper rep, and a few wild months spent checking items off her ” summer bucket list” is the way to do it. First up: kiss the man she’s crushed on since she wore a training bra, the bad boy of country himself, Blue bassist Charlie Tucker. For Charlie, a beautiful woman flirting with him isn’t out of the norm–but a beautiful woman bolting after the hottest kiss of his life sure is. And when he finds out his kiss-and-run Cinderella is none other than Arabella Stone, daughter of his label’s CEO, he knows he’s in trouble. Because not only is she a Stone, she’s also his employee for the next few months at the recording studio he just bought. Over the course of one thrilling summer, Arabella and Charlie chip away at her bucket list and fight the simmering attraction between them…knowing that once it’s all over, so is their time together.
