Received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
Wow, just wow. Probably the best transition from friends-to-lovers story I’ve read. The chemistry and the friendship between Tommy and Julie just touched me to the core. I fell in love with them as friends and also as something more.
I loved the Brody/Julie dynamic and really hope that we get to see Brody and Mac’s Happy Ever Afters (separate, not together, although that would be an interesting twist!)
It was a 5* read for me all the way through (though I think Tommy was really stupid to run back into his burning house) until the final quarter. I just felt at that point in the story, the author shouldn’t still be trying to come up with reasons to avoid the inevitable HEA.
This is my first read by Abby Niles (I haven’t read the first book in the series and you definitely don’t have to in order to enjoy this) and I’ll definitely be coming back for some more.
