When I first read the summary of Maria La Serra’s The One & Only, there were two aspects that instantly called out to me: The magazine setting, and the enemies-to-lovers plot.
The first got my attention because of my journalism background; novels set in newspaper or magazine offices often catch my eye for that very reason. The enemies-to-lovers aspect, however, doesn’t always appeal to me. I’m not entirely sure why it did this time, but there’s something about it in Maria’s summary that just pulled me in and is refusing to let go.
That’s still the case after seeing the teaser’s below. They’re short, but they’re alluring.

About The One & Only
Two New York editors learn that their office feud and love-hate feelings could be the perfect way to find the love that they both have been looking for—that is if they don’t kill each other first.
Staci Cortés is a dating columnist at a popular New York magazine and trying her best to get her love life in order. Greg McAdams—the one person in the world that Staci cannot stand—is a writer for a metropolitan men’s magazine, the son of her boss, and sits right across the hall from her. So when Staci is promoted to a brand new online magazine venture with a new co-editor she is beyond ecstatic, until she learns that her new partner is none other than Greg.
As the two struggle to get along and work together on their coop-editorial pieces, they both realize that there is more to the other than meets the eye. A charming story about forgiveness, compromise, and the ups-and-downs of an in-office relationship, The One and Only is the perfect novella for fans of the movie 10 Things I Hate About You and office romances.
