After The One, Season Finale
by: Danielle Allen
Release Date: August 28, 2016
The perfect couple.
The enchanted fairy tale.
The concept of ‘happily ever after’ on reality TV is beautiful, but it’s complete B.S.
I mean, I get the appeal.
The One is the most watched reality TV dating show because it sells the idea that two people “randomly” handpicked by producers will fall in love and ride off into the sunset. We are expected to believe that after having a group of women embarrass themselves for the affection of a man on national television, the bachelor and the chosen one fall in love and they live happily ever after.
Let’s be honest.
Shows like The One are really about fantasy romance and must-see entertainment—not happily ever afters. That’s why the creators and producers don’t show what happens after the exotic getaways, lavish lifestyles, and over-the-top proposals. Even though reality TV relationships never last, they want us to buy into the fairy tale.
Truth is… when the cameras stop rolling, the number one killer of reality TV couples is real life.
And life just got REAL.

This author just cannot write anything but 5 star reads in my opinion! This is book 2 which follows up after The One, the reality television show which Zoe reluctantly competes in after her BFF Koko enters her and she meets the man of her dreams, Julian Winters. Read this book first, it's wonderful! This is a follow-up of the real life happenings once the show is over.
This book shows the great love Julian and Zoe have for each other and what happens as they move forward after the show.
Julian, as always, makes your heart swoon!
"You are the music that beats in my heart, that guides my steps, that makes me whole. You are the music that inspires me, that captivates me, that drives me. You are the music I've been looking for to go with the lyrics in my heart."
I don't want to give any spoilers away and I didn't know what Ms. Allen could possibly come up with for this follow-up book, but she sure surprised me. The supporting characters, like her other books, are wonderful and I walk away with a feeling of love for them all. And I'd love to see Koko's story in the future. I loved her!!
"I'm serious," she giggled. "That 'don't go to bed angry' sh*t works and it's clearly working for you guys. I've been going to bed angry for weeks and I'm angry when I wake up and I'm angry when he calls and texts and pops up at my trailer."
There are some ups and downs in this book, surprises and times you will melt. There are also people from the past that will appear to make trouble and OMG, the producer of The One?
This author is amazing! Her characters are all wonderful and her writing very descriptive. I would highly recommend anything she has written and always look forward to her next release!
Find out how it all started with The One
I don't generally watch reality television, but I definitely don't watch reality dating shows. Besides the fact that it's completely staged, it's a horrible depiction of people -- women especially.
Women are pitted against each other to compete for the affection of a man they "fall in love" with after a week or two.
I call B.S.
It is complete crap.
So when my best friend, Koko, was hired as a makeup artist o the set of the most popular reality dating show, The One, I teased her mercilessly.
She told me that if I didn't stop teasing her, she would get me back.
And she did...
Which is how I ended up as a contestant on The One.
