Book Review – The One by John Marrs

July 1, 2018

The One How could I POSSIBLY resist this one?!!! Don’t let that sinister cover fool you (although of course… that alone pulled me in). This IS a story of love, falling in love, and the dream come true. Well… except for the ones that are NOT “the one”. It sounds too good to be true, [...]
