Description: The moment former art teacher Drew Richards spots gorgeous African-American lawyer Mark Stevens at a party, he is intrigued. Though rebuffed at first, a persistent Drew convinces Mark they can be friends at least.
After the death of his partner, Mark buried himself in work, a habit he can't seem to break...until he meets Drew. The short, dark-haired Drew is not Mark's usual sort, but he finds the man way too appealing, and before he knows it, he and Drew become more than friends.
Since Mark's been out of the dating scene for a long while, he can't help but make a few missteps in their growing relationship. But Drew is looking for a serious commitment. Can he become Mark's one and only?

"...The fourth and last book in Shawn Lane's inter-related Only Forever series. You don't have to read these books in order, but this last book contains followups with the couples from the previous books, so you will probably enjoy it more if you have read the first three. The sex scenes are hot, the angst is not overdone and the secondary characters are unusually well-drawn. I found this book enjoyable, as is the series as a whole."--Carole, Rainbow Reviews
"...Brings the pleasurable series to a close with a lovely romance between two heroes who are sure to endear themselves to readers. What charms me about Drew and Mark, indeed what I like about the diverse cast of heroes in the series, is that they all seem like people I could meet in everyday life. The obstacles in Mark and Drew's burgeoning relationship are also realistic, and I avidly read His One And Only eager to see Mark and Drew get their happily ever after...A sweet, sensual read that left me a well-satisfied reader. I've greatly enjoyed the Only Forever stories...Shawn Lane has ended the delightful quartet of books on a high note."--Shayna, Joyfully Reviewed
"4 Nymphs!...Enjoyable to read...I loved the epilogue as it was a nice touch to the end of a very enjoyable series. It has been a lot of fun to inhabit a world rich in gorgeous men with kind hearts, good souls and wicked action between the sheets."--Rose Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews
Drew Richards stared at the handsome, well-groomed black man talking on the cell phone in the corner of the backyard. Standing next to Drew was his best friend, Steve Llewellyn. They were at Steve's half-brother, Nathan's, Memorial Weekend barbecue.
He took a long drag of his beer. He'd been staring at the man for pretty much the whole day. Not long ago he'd learned the man's name, Mark Stevens. Apparently he was a lawyer with Nathan's firm.
"Drew, are you listening?" Steve asked, waving his hand in front of Drew's face.
"Sure, you were talking about Heather." Steve was always talking about his fiancee, Heather, so he knew it was a safe guess. Steve and Heather, who basically looked like Barbie and Ken in Drew's opinion, planned to marry in July.
Steve threw him a look. "Nice try. This time, though, I was asking you about how your mom was doing."
"Oh. She's doing pretty good, considering." Drew's stepfather had been diagnosed with prostate cancer recently. He was too tired from treatment these days to help with the gift shop they owned in Newport Beach, therefore, Drew was working there now. "Both of them are pretty optimistic."
"Good, I'm glad." Steve followed his gaze. "You still watching that guy?"
Drew shrugged. "Gotta look somewhere. Might as well be at him."
"Why don't you go talk to him?"
"What?" Drew looked at Steve. "Are you crazy? That guy would never talk to someone like me."
"Someone like you? What's wrong with you?"
"Well, I'm short and...and--"
"Cute as a button." Steve laughed and shoved him. "Go on, Casanova, go talk to him. Distract him from that phone. I think it's stuck to his ear."
