Review: The Only Way

The Only Way - The Only Series #4
by Magan Vernon

Genre: New Adult
Release Date: Readily Available
Hosted by: The Write Connections

William "Tripp" Chapman has always been the black sheep of his family's political dynasty. His oldest brother works on Wall Street, his youngest-groomed for the senate. And Tripp is the brother known for wrecking his Porsche after a drinking bender and winding up in rehab.

On the night of his father's presidential election he takes a detour and meets a waitress at a local hole-in-the wall. Samantha "Sam" Green is just as broken as he is, but covers it up with enough snark so no one tries to get too close.

When Sam gets kicked out of her apartment, Tripp agrees that she can crash on his couch until she gets on her feet. But as they grow closer physically, the ghosts of their past threaten to burden their new relationship

The Only Way they can overcome their demons is to face them instead of running. Can Sam help Tripp find his way or will their own battles bury them further?

The Only series is a series of standalone novels. You do not need to read one in order to fully understand the other. M/F. HEA.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: The Only Way is part of a contemporary standalone series written by Magan Vernon.

The story focuses on Tripp (William) as he tries to rebuild his life and beat his addictions. Early on Tripp meets Sam who also has more than her fair share of problems.

The story is sad and tackles some pretty dark topics - but it's also kind of sweet and demonstrates some real moments of hope. The book is about finding that one person who just 'gets' you. 

The friendship between Tripp and Sam made me smile because they really supported each other. It was nice seeing Tripp aka the family black-sheep, finding something to care about and watching how hard he tries to change. He makes mistakes but genuinely wants to help Sam.

My favourite element was the element which usually annoys me in these types of stories - I liked the back and forth between them and how Sam took the time to discover what she wanted.

I would have liked a longer ending and to have been given more information on Sam's past and Tripp's plans - I can't say any more without posting spoilers, so I'll leave you to discover what happens. I appreciate books where the main characters show a certain spark and have great banter, so I liked their funny friendship.

3.5 Stars in my Sky!
