Goodreads Description:

The highly anticipated conclusion to Kiera Cass's #1 New York Timesbestselling Selection series, The One will captivate readers who love dystopian YA fiction and fairy tales. The One is the perfect finale for fans who have followed America's whirlwind romance since it began--and a swoon-worthy read for teens who have devoured Veronica Roth'sDivergent, Ally Condie's Matched, or Lauren Oliver's Delirium.

The Selection changed America Singer's life in ways she never could have imagined. Since she entered the competition to become the next princess of Illéa, America has struggled with her feelings for her first love, Aspen--and her growing attraction to Prince Maxon. Now she's made her choice . . . and she's prepared to fight for the future she wants.
Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series!
I flew through this book! I started it in the evening and finished in the early morning hours. Honestly, I think I flew through it too quickly. Everything is kind of a blur. I wish I would have slowed down and savored it a little more. Maybe I'll have the chance to reread it one day.
After the second book, The Elite, I was disappointed with both Maxon and America. They couldn't seem to get their act together and they really did drive me crazy. I was so happy that they finally started moving forward instead of backwards. Maxon is the storybook prince. He is kind, good looking, smart, loving, and most importantly he wants to be a good king but also a good person. There were a couple of times that I felt Maxon's temper got the best of him though and made him act a little childish. Of course, I forgive him and will forever remain Team Maxon.
The One does focus a little more on the rebellion and the rebel forces. There are some interesting developments with that plot that I enjoyed. Still, I would have liked to have seen a little more in that area. 
I realize this review is a super short review and I apologize for that. I don't want to say too much for fear of giving something alway but also I flew through this book a little too quickly and now everything is a bit hazy. I can tell you that I enjoyed the plot. The characters had some character growth in the final installment.  The Selection is still my favorite in the series but The One is a close second. For anyone that hasn't read the series I highly reccommend it!
