Author: Alexandra Silva
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 27th July 2018
They say bad things happen in threes…
I made a mistake. I kissed the right boy, but married the wrong man. They were friends. Best friends. Until my life fell apart.
Something was stolen and then something was given in its place.
I had so much in my grasp, maybe it was too much because everything started slipping.
Only one thing remained the same.
My first crush.
My first kiss.
My first love.
They say you can’t miss what you’ve never had…
But I swear I had her. At least for one kiss.
I left the right girl and tried to replace her with the wrong woman.
It didn’t work because I still missed her.
I promised my best friend I’d always look after his little sister. And our other best friend promised to never break her heart.
We have circled each other all our lives but our time never came.
We’ve never had our moment until now.

Tara’s 4**** Review
Love is a test, and marriage can be a challenge, but when you suffer a tragic event, love and marriage may not survive the heartbreak.
“I held her in my arms and I wondered what would’ve happened if I hadn’t left. What would’ve happened if I’d just had the selflessness to stay?”
Quinn has suffered the worst nightmare any parent can imagine, and in doing so, she loses the support of her (loser) husband. Moving on is hard, but with the support of her best friend, old heartbreaks drift away, while new adventures are on the horizon. Jaime has watched Quinn from afar his whole life. Now that he’s single, he’s worried that leaving the friend zone, and entering a relationship will damage what the two have. But with haunted pasts and promises of something more, can these two overcome their challenges to make it work?
“It was too much to feel. Too much too take in. To understand. It felt like every single touch we’d shared over the years had built up and we’d had no choice but to just be and bask in it. Things hadn’t changed. I thought they would, but they hadn’t. They just clicked.”
This book tugged on my heart strings. From the serious topics to the light hearted humour between close friends, Alexandra makes No One But You a perfect combination. She also portrays the stress of working in a hospital, and the emotional turmoil the doctors deal with so well.
“I wanted to make plans with him. I wanted to be with him. But what you want and what you get are two very different things. That was something I was well versed in.”
