REVIEW – ANOTHER ONE (Lighter Ones, #2) by Aleatha Romig


Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE.

A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit.


Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits, or that I should be off-limits to him.

Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms with gaping holes in my memory.

They didn’t.

We did.

The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives.

And then it happened.

My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then, the phone stopped ringing.

Before it did, I knew one thing…

Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed I want another one!


Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try.

She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it.

The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us.

I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun) I couldn’t take it any more—and she became the one who got away.

Now, everything has changed.

Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay.

That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

From a secret one to another one!

Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

When I’m around you, I say things I’d never say. I want things, things I’m willing to do anything to get. I also want to be everything you deserve.



I’m in LOVE with the “lighter” side of Aleatha Romig. Granted I’ve never read any of her dark romances, and I do happen to enjoy those every now and then, but RomComs are my first love!! I wasn’t expecting this story to win me over so completely the way that it did. I might even love this one more than the first book and I was pretty crazy about “Plus One”! This was a sweet, sexy, second chance romance that stole my heart completely.



I loved the Hero, Trevor Willis. He’s not like most of the leading men in romance novels. Trevor is a handsome specimen of a man but he’s shy, quiet…reserved. He doesn’t have the smooth moves when it comes to women, but one night, he meets a beautiful woman at a hotel piano bar and something about her calls to him. There’s an instant and undeniably strong spark between them. Gone is the shy and awkward man and in his place is a sexy, charismatic and sweet alpha male who only Shana Price can awaken in Trevor. Shana and Trevor’s night together before Kimbra and Duncan’s wedding (the couple from “PLUS ONE”) is told in the free novella ”SECRET ONE”. It’s definitely worth picking up and is a very quick read. Timing is everything and it just wasn’t right for the couple when they first met. Their careers kept them a continent apart and attempts to keep in touch became futile.

One year later, it’s as if fate steps in and is determined for the couple to reunite. Shana is in NYC for two weeks to help out the lingerie division of “Saks Fifth Avenue” for their show during fashion week. If all goes well, she might get a promotion and the chance to move from London to New York. Trevor moved back to New York recently for his job and during a night out with his friends he can’t believe it when he sees Shana! When they run into each other again at a bar later that same night, Trevor knows he can’t let the beautiful woman who has never left his thoughts over the past year get away again. Shana is just as happy to see Trevor but worries about letting him into her heart. She’s afraid she’ll lose a bit of herself if she falls for Trevor, and if she were honest with herself she’d have realized she fell for him a year ago.



Shana’s apprehension is no match for Trevor’s determination. He knows that she’s the one that got away and this time he’s not letting her slip through his fingers. But what will the couple do if Shana doesn’t get her dream job in NYC and she must go back to London? Will love win over careers this time around?



ANOTHER ONE was incredibly sweet and deliciously steamy. I just could not get enough of Trevor and Shana’s story!

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 3.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

ANOTHER ONE is currently available! It can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend the first book, ”PLUS ONE”, too!! These are fun and steamy romantic comedies that are sure to put a smile on your face!
