One True Love by Barbara Freethy

Book Description: 

She Walked Back into His Life...
The last place Lisa Alvarez expected to find herself was babysitting for her ex-sister-in-law's three rambunctious kids. But when Maggie called her up and begged for time alone, something in Lisa made her say yes--for one weekend she'd leave behind the career she'd built and her regimented new fiance. But Lisa never expected her handsome ex-husband Nick to show up on the doorstep, walking back into her life, and taking over more than the weekend... And His Heart
Nick can't believe how Lisa has changed over the years-- and how she's stayed the same. His heart still races when her eyes catch his, his pulse pounds when she's near. After tragedy pushed them apart, Nick spent eight years rebuilding his life and his soul. Can he risk losing his heart again, for a second chance at true love?

Christina's BookReview
“You can take all the precautions in the world and worry yourself like crazy, but each individual comes to this world with a life to live, no matter how long or how good or how scary it might be.”  

I LOVED this book! Best Contemporary Romance I've read this year! I'm upset that it took me this long to read it!

Lisa Alvarez is living in LA drowning herself in work and planning her wedding to her boss. The reason why? Because she is trying to escape all of the memories from 8 years ago. That is all hopeless after Maggie, Lisa's best friend and ex-sister in law, calls her frantically needing her help. Lisa immediately drops what she is doing and heads off to help her.After sending Maggie off on a mini vacation Lisa is forced to babysit her friends three children with the one person she has tried desperately to forget. Nick Maddux, her ex-husband.When Lisa's family and Nick force her to confront her past Lisa can't help but relive the most awful moments of her life 8 years ago but also the good in that life as well. It is so easy to fall back in love with Nick Maddux, but Lisa is engaged and has a new life, a life she thought she wanted after walking away from those she loved. What Lisa soon realizes is that maybe her life wasn't as bad as she thought, maybe it was time to stop running away.

Maggie Scott has been in over her head during the past year. With three children to care for, no job and dealing with the death of her husband Maggie has reason to be stressed and at the point of a breakdown. But on top of that Maggie receives a letter addressed to her husband from a mysterious woman. Determined to discover who she is and why she was writing her husband Maggie embarks on a journey that will forever change her life. Along that journey she meets Jeremy, a incredibly sexy LA writer and neighbor to the woman Maggie is looking for. What she doesn't count on is finding love during that time.

This book is filled with lots of angst but so many happy moments. Throughout the whole book I found my self crying, laughing and sighing in content! The relationship between Nick and Lisa is so special and so heartbreaking that you can't help but root for them to overcome their "trials" and finally live happily ever after. Maggie and Jeremy's relationship was so sweet and exciting that it was hard not to fall in love with them as well.

If you love romance this is the book for you to read! I don't want to spoil anything for people but I do think that I should warn you that this book does deal with the loss of a child.
