 My Thoughts


Soooo pretty much all the reasons I struggled to love The Elite weren’t issues in The One at all.




Finishing The Elite, I wanted more action than was present in that story, AND I wanted that action to feel like it truly mattered. Ask and ye shall receive, because HO-LY. There are more attacks from the rebels that result in a hell of a lot more intensity than everyone waiting it out in safe rooms.




But who? WHO DIES? Don’t worry, I’m not actually going to tell you. That would spoil everything!;)


You know what else I was sad was missing in The Elite and was more than present here? The swoons. Hot and sweet and downright adorable. YES, more time with America and Maxon! As it should be! Although there were still times where even though America was all about fighting for Maxon, she’d still get all weird and back off and doubt. I liked her more than I have before, but there were still moments I wanted to throttle her because of her reactions.


And Aspen actually grew on me. Not in a romantic way, because he just never seemed like the right match for America. But as an all around good guy and great friend? I am a fan, Aspen. I like you now!


Even though the ending was thrilling and chaotic and jaw dropping, there was still a little something left to be desired. There was all this build up with the rebel forces and the unrest in the country, but it wasn’t ever resolved. There were plans, yes, but it made it seem like this wasn’t really the last book in the series–those issues were left unsettled and it kind of unsettles me. I’m still wondering what’s going to happen now? And I wish I didn’t have that question continually hovering over me.


This was one of those reads that I opened the minute I had a hold of it and didn’t set it down until I was finished. I was addicted to this series! I’m a sucker for romance and chemistry, so my feeling having finished this series is almost entirely happiness.



3.8/5 stars;)
