The Only One by Necie Navone – Review by Tracy Manderson

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1) by Necie Navone
5 out of 5 stars
The Only One is book one in the Brothers of Camelot series written by Necie Navone and it’s the first book that I have read by this author and it surely won’t be the last. The characters are well written with strong personalities and the banter is awesome. I really enjoyed the story plot with the Camelot fairy tale but it’s modern. I especially loved Mom Gregory and the way she accepted Fitz and mad him a part of the family.
Drake, aka Fitz, was dealt a tragic hand from the beginning. He had to adjust to Pain and rejection but that all melted away when a little girl named Isabella aka Belle with huge brown eyes, strawberry blonde curls and an explosive personality, walked into his new home and his heart.
They were inseparable as kids, she’s was literally ripped from his arms when they where teens. Convincing himself he’s unworthy of her, he closed himself off to all future relationships, refusing to open his heart to anyone else. If only she would come back to him.
Can a man whore whose motto is “One and Done” keep it in his pants long enough to win back the trust of his childhood sweetheart?
Isabella, with her unique personality, returns to her childhood town to start her own business, and prove she doesn’t need her mother, or a man, to feel complete. Thanks to her first love, her father’s betrayal and a slew of bad relationships, she’s locked her heart away, hidden behind her smile and sweet disposition. She’s found peace in her memories of Drake, hoping he’ll finally contact her, or maybe she’ll find the nerve to contact him.
Can their long-lost love be rekindled or do they need a little help from their friends?
I highly recommend this book and cant wait to see what Ms. Navone has in-stored for us next…

The Only One (The Brothers of Camelot Book 1) by Necie Navone – Review by Elizabeth Sanchez

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1)The Only One by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Only One is a great start to a new series by Necie Navone. I cannot wait to read more about the Camelot Brothers. It is an unexpectedly sweet romance, mixed with a lot of foul language. I loved that about it though, because it made it real and set the tone for the brother’s personalities. It was a wonderful story on its own, while introducing us to other characters that I’m sure will have their own books to follow. This is the story of Drake, aka Fitz and Isabella, aka Bella. They have a wonderful history, meeting when they were just 4 and 6 years old, and becoming instant friends. While they always seemed to love each other, they were torn apart as teens, before they had the chance to discover what could have been. Drake became a womanizer, and adopted the motto “one and done” while Isabella’s track record wasn’t much more stable, never lasting more than 3 months in a relationship. Is it fate that brings them back together? Can Isabella finally change Drake’s ways, and make him committed so they can earn a happily ever after?

The Only One (The Brothers of Camelot Book One ) by Necie Navone – Review by Heather Bass

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1)The Only One by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this author and she blew me away. I love a good friends to lovers romance but this story exceeded all my expectations. This is the first book to a new series called The Brothers of Camelot. I could not put this book down. I fell in love with these characters right from the beginning. It only took me a day to devour this amazing story.

Drake is a one and done kind of guy. He had a very tragic life when he was a boy. Drake was having a hard time adjusting to his new life until a cute little girl came into his life. Isabella and Drake were inseparable until the sad day that one of them had to leave the other. Drake is now in his mid twenties and he can’t stop thinking about his Bella. They made a vow that they will never forget eachother. When Isabella comes back into his life he doesn’t want to let her go. The only thing is they are not little anymore. They now have pasts which could lead them into danger. Will Drake and Isabella live happily ever after or will they destroy each other with their pasts?

This books was the perfect way to start a new series. The storyline has it all romance, suspense, and mystery. You will fall in love with these characters. I absolutely love Drake. He is very controlling but the way he treats Isabella will make you swoon. He would do anything to see her smile. Isabella is a beautiful woman that has a heart of gold. She wants to find the ever lasting love but she puts some walls up. You can feel the love poor out of these pages. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your temperature rise. This talented author will keep you at the edge of your seat until the end. I can’t wait to see who this author writes about next. This is going to be a favorite series of mine. I can feel it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Only One by Necie Navone is book one in the Brothers of Camelot series. So basically there are 12 friends and this is Fitz’ s story. He’s literally a man whore who has a one and done policy. He’s been in love with Isabella for a really long time. Events have pushed them apart etc. I really enjoyed this story. It was a fun read and I really like the author’s style. It was easy to stay up late reading. I especially like Fitz’s meddling mom. Overall I have no complaints and would read others in the series. 4 star rating.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Only One by Necie Navone is an easy read. It was easy to get lost in the pages of the book. Once I started this story, it was an instant hit to me. I am finding that I really do love the romance stories, BUT I need to have a little more to the story like mystery or adventure. Navone does an amazing job in creating believable characters that could be the “neighbor next store”. It was like I was right there in the background of the story watching from above the scene. There was a “brotherhood” of guys who had a hard life and really bonded to one another. Once brother, Drake (aka, Fritz) was dealt a bad hand with regards to family. He one day meets the girl next door, Isabella. They were always together until a situation ripped them apart. Isabella tried to prove that she doesn’t need a man or her mother. Drake has become this male god and really thinks highly of himself. What happens when Drake meets Isabelle will the spark that they had years before come back? Enjoy reading The Only One to find out the answer.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Necie Navone is a new to me author! I am so glad I took a chance on this author! This story had me laughing out loud, turning pages as fast as I could read the words and sighing with the sweet sexiness of it all. And now I’m patiently waiting for the next in this Brothers of Camelot series.

The story line is good. The writing is good. The characters are awesome! The main characters are Drake and Isabella. They were friends, actually, the best of friends until they were teenagers. Then time got away from them and life happened. It didn’t help that there were meddling families involved as well. They lost track of each other, each longing for the other to find them. When they get back together though, wow! And then, then this story takes a little twist that I didn’t think was going to happen. I mean the story line had the potential to go this dark way, but it wasn’t written like it was going to. So, I was taken by surprise!

Luckily both Bella and Drake have a great support system, the other Brothers of Camelot! Who doesn’t “need a little help from their friends?”

I can not wait to read the rest of this series!

The Only One (The Brothers of Camelot Book 1) by Necie Navone

5 Stars

Oh my goodness, I loved this book and I loved the characters, and I love the whole storyline and I am so happy that there are many to follow this, telling me all of our brothers hopefully will be getting their own book.

My heart broke for Drake, his story was not something you would ever expect but if there was a silver lining it was Mom, and oh how I loved Mom, and then of course there was the brothers..I enjoyed every second of this book and when Bella literally popped back into their lives she was a sassy breath of fresh air, I loved her rants and how she pretty much had everyone scared of her..I laughed out loud more than once with all of the interaction between all of the characters.

Not sure how this author has gotten by me up until now, but I promise I will be reading all of this series and then anything else she comes out with. I’m already totally intrigued with what is to come for Grayson and Aless and why all the mystery. I think the story Im looking forward to the most is Hawkins, I already love him and just know there’s going to be tears when I get to him and that’s ok.

I read this in 2 sittings, although I wanted to read it straight through but this thing called life got in the way…I highly recommend this book, the author was able to add in just enough mystery, laugh out loud moments, a few tears, danger, and a glimpse into the lives of all of the players in this, The Brothers of Camelot series and I can not wait for more!!

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1)The Only One by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I LOVED THIS BOOK!

The concept around it was amazing. 12 boys growing up together and they shared this massive treehouse where they had a massive round table and heard the stories of King Arthur and his knights of the round table. This helped solidify their bond until adulthood where each of them have found their passion in their company, Camelot enterprises.

Necie Navone is a new author to me but I’m completely hooked and can’t wait for more from her. This is the first book in her Brother’s of Camelot series and I’m dying to get my hand on the second one.

This story follows Drake and Isabella. Both have always had this bond but broken hearts have separated the two until they cross paths as adults. Drake has always longed for Isabella and he has always believed she is the one for him. Isabella has had a rough go with heartbreaks and they can only heal one another.

This was most definitely a 5 Star read and I can’t wait to see what Miss Navone has in store for book 2!

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1)The Only One by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Only One by Necie Navone is a great opening to her Brothers of Camelot series! I fell in love with her writing and I will be reading her My Life Series while waiting for the next installments of the series!
The Only One is the story of Drake “Fitz” and Isabella “Bella” – the Beast and the Beauty …
Fitz is part of a group of twelve boys – Brothers of Camelot – and they have been inseparable since they were kids. They have been able to stay true to their adopted knightly code of the Round Table and they are there for each other, no matter what! And it is not just something theoretical! They formed Camelot Enterprises where each and every one of them has their own role and it does not matter who brought in the most money … I absolutely loved this concept!
Bella is … well, she is this four year old girl that fell in love with a six year old Fitz promising that she will marry him when she grows up …
Well, obviously life does not very often go as we dream so Bella and Fitz got separated when Bella was seventeen and Fitz does not believe himself to be worthy of her so he adopted his infamous “One and Done” man whore principle to carry himself through life … it all grows old though and just before his 26th birthday he decides that it is time to find out where Bella is … but no more about the story, you need to pick it up yourself to find out how the story of the Beast and the Beauty ends!
I loved the writing style and the banter and Bella’s inability to swear! Her tries to swear simply cracked me up! I could not put the story down and read it in one sitting and I am sooo happy that there are 12 “brothers” as now I have 11 more stories to look forward to!

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1)The Only One by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Only One (The Brothers of Camelot Book 1) by Necie Navone is a story that will blow you away and make you fall in love with these wonderful characters. Right from the start you are drawn in and find yourself wanting to be a part of their world. Necie is a talented writer and keeps the suspense flowing and emotions high. There are moments when tensions are so high I found myself on the edge of my seat. Other times I found myself laughing and thinking of good times. Overall this is a great start to the series and if the rest of the series is anything like this first book then Necie will have a winner for awards. Necie has written her heart and soul in these characters and the plot is spot on and fast paced but you are able to follow along without any problems. I need me some more of the Camelot Brothers. Well done Necie!
