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.

The One was an amazing book. It drew me in from the start. Even though I don't watch reality TV, I was sucked in and hooked.
This was read in one sitting, on a Saturday, in my bed. I DID NOT MOVE.
A swoon-worthy hero, a strong-minded heroine, and a variety of side characters that will make you want to laugh, scream, and probably throat-punch at least one of them.
Oh... and there's a super steamy scene that will make a non-smoker want a cigarette!
For real, I needed a cigarette AND a nap.
Along with writing a great love story, Danielle knows how to weave in important social issues without making the whole book about those issues.
I can't say enough about The One. Whether you love or hate reality TV, this appeals to all. Definitely a Must Read.
