I’m head over heels in love with my best friend. Although, I can’t pinpoint exactly when Reeve Lancaster became my entire world. 

Was it when we were little kids, practically brought up together, after Reeve’s mom died during childbirth and his dad subsequently fell apart? Or when I doodled his name in my school journal at age ten? Maybe it was when we became boyfriend and girlfriend at fourteen or when we shed our virginity at sixteen, pledging our forever? 


I was there as his star ascended—like I’d always known it would—and there wasn’t a prouder person on the planet. As the only child of Hollywood’s golden couple, I’ve lived my life in the spotlight enough to know it wasn’t what I wanted for my future. But I sacrificed my own desires, because Reeve’s happiness meant everything to me.

Until he crushed my heart into itty-bitty pieces, forcing me to fly halfway around the world just to escape the gut-wrenching pain.


The opportunity to study at Trinity College Dublin came at the perfect moment, and I jumped at the chance without hesitation. If I’d known fate was meddling in my life, perhaps I would have chosen differently, but my future was cemented the instant I laid eyes on him.


Dillon O’Donoghue was Reeve’s polar opposite in every way, and perhaps, that’s why I felt drawn to him. He was the dark to my light. The thorn in my side, irritating me with his cold disdain, wild recklessness, and a burning rage hidden deep inside him that spoke to a silent part within me. Yet Dillon showed me what it was like to truly live, opening my eyes to endless possibilities. 


What happened next was inevitable, and I only have myself to blame. He warned me, and I knew my reprieve was temporary, because there is only so far I can run.

Especially when fate hasn’t finished messing with me yet.

Say I’m the One is as angsty and emotional as it gets. Davis will rip our your heart and smash it into pieces before slowly mending it back together. Say I’m the One is a love triangle that packs a punch.

I wasn’t expecting to feel so emotional while reading Say I’m the One, but my heart broke along side Vivien. There were moments I had to put the book down and decompress because it got to be too much. This is a testament to Davis’ writing. She knows how to pluck on your heartstrings in the best and worst ways.

For a bit of the beginning of the novel, I thought Vivien was kind of a doormat. She didn’t stand up for herself as much as I wanted her to, but I do understand her reasoning. Vivien has her moment and it cemented my love for her. She’s open, fierce, and honest.

And now for the Reeve versus Dillon debate. Reeve and Dillon are presented as opposites. Reeve is light haired and open while Dillon is dark haired and closed off. Both have incredible chemistry with Vivien and speak to different parts of who she is as a person. However, I feel like Reeve is at a disadvantage. Readers get to experience Vivien and Dillon’s coupling while Reeve and Vivien’s relationship is based on their past, which readers don’t see very much of since it’s only referred to. I wish there had been more flashback scenes.

That ending. If you’re not a fan of cliff-hangers, you may want to wait until the sequel comes out in May before starting this book. It’s a jaw dropping cliff-hanger that will leave you gobsmacked.

Overall, Say I’m the One is an angst filled, heartbreaking, and surprising novel with an ending that will leave you in a puddle on the floor trying to piece yourself back together.

***I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
