Review: You're the One That I Want by Susan May Warren

About the book:
Owen Christiansen has been in a downward spiral since an injury ended his NHL career. But a job on an Alaskan crabbing boat offers a fresh start . . . maybe even a shot at romance with Elise “Scotty” McFlynn, the captain’s daughter.

Used to being one of the guys, to never relying on anyone, Scotty doesn’t believe in happily ever after—especially with someone like Owen. Her instinct is confirmed when Casper Christiansen arrives to drag his prodigal brother home, bringing with him a truckload of family drama—and even worse, the news that Casper is wanted for questioning in connection to a crime back in Minnesota.

But Owen is more than the sum of his mistakes, a truth both he and Scotty discover when she escorts both brothers to Deep Haven as part of her new job on the Anchorage police force. Thrust into an unfamiliar world of family, faith, and fresh starts, Scotty begins to see potential for a happy ending . . . if she’s brave enough to embrace it.

My thoughts:

You're the One That I Want is the sixth book in the Christiansen Family series and I absolutely loved it. I have been enjoying this series ever since the first book, but I was a little nervous about Owen's story (didn't know how things would turn out). I shouldn't have been worried because it was a fantastic story about grace and was just amazing.

The story grabbed my attention from the first chapter. I loved how much spunk the MC had and the way she interacted with Owen was hilarious. There was also a scene early on that really had me on the edge of my seat and that made the pages fly by.

All in all, You're the One that I Want was phenomenal and I definitely recommend it. I feel like you should definitely read the prior books first so that you fully understand the backstory.
