The One That I Want by Allison Winn Scotch - Blog Tour and Giveaway

The One That I Want
Allison Winn Scotch
Shaye Areheart Books/Crown Publishing
270 pgs.

"None of us ever really stop to consider that the worst can actually happen to us..."

Tilly Farmer has the best job and a great husband.  She gets to go to prom each year.  She can make it everything she wants and re-live those memories over and over.  Her husband is exactly like he was when they fell in love at seventeen.  All she needs now is a baby and her life will be complete.  Or so she thinks.

In The One That I Want by Allison Winn Scotch, Tilly Farmer's eyes are starting to open to the world around her.  Stepping into a dark tent and having her palm read by a girl she used to call her best friend gives her something she NEVER wanted.

Now, Tilly can hold a photograph she's taken and she's dropped into a glimpse of that person's life in the future.  Problems? She can't tell when the event will happen or change it nor can she see her own life. In the beginning she can't control when she will drop into the visions or how long she'll be there.  She also doesn't believe they'll come true.  Until they do.  She hunts down Ashley to take back her "gift" but it's too late.   Tilly has to figure out what to do with this information she doesn't want because what she sees is not what she wants to believe is happening.  She has worked too hard for this life of happiness and she will not allow anything to disrupt it.  But, you can't stop fate.  Or can you?

"...I might have felt broken, but at the end of it all, I didn't allow myself to break."

The One That I Want started out slowly but, like Tilly's understanding of clarity, it picked up and zoomed.  I loved the character Eli and wish there was something with him and Tilly.  I stayed up reading this, not wanting to stop even with the threat of an early morning.  A fast read with just enough mystery and humor to keep you entertained.
