My Review:

This is a sweet friends to lovers romance with lots of twists and turns en route to their happy ever after. Though this is the third book in the series, it is a standalone and you really don’t need to read the earlier two to appreciate this one – though you may well be tempted to go back to read them as this is so good!

Olivia and Danny had been best friends throughout their childhood after Danny saved her from some mean kids. She’s hung around with Danny, Bryce and Zane, as one of the boys ever since, well until she disappeared after being humiliated and fired from her job. When Olivia found herself pregnant, with a boyfriend who’d done a disappearing act after finding out, she flew home to ask Danny to marry her and be the child’s father – but fate stepped in and she ended up announcing they were planning to marry and that she is pregnant to his landlady, Mrs Landry, without first discussing it with Danny . . . . and Mrs Landry just happens to tell everyone else! Poor Dan doesn’t stand a chance! He, however, had no intention of ever marrying because he has Choroideremia, a rare inherited disease that will result in him being blind and doesn’t believe anyone will want him then and he is wary of passing it on should he father any children. Will he agree to help her? Can they overcome their fears of spoiling their friendship to find romance together? Can he learn to face the future without sight but with hope?

Don’t expect an event free journey with this brilliant author, you just know there’ll be plenty of obstacles in the path of the potential couple. They already love and trust each other as best friends but attraction is developing dramatically. Should they resist temptation? What will happen if they don’t? As they start to reveal their feelings online to each other, will they dare to do so face to face? A great friends to lovers romance with well developed characters and a roller coaster ride plot  packed with twists and turns to keep the reader enthralled.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Olivia Lincoln has a plan guaranteed to get her life back on track. A plan that involves her best friend, Danny. And he’s on board, too…until she blurts out that they’re engaged and expecting a baby, and the news spreads like wildfire.

The problem? Danny doesn’t do marriage. Or family. And everyone knows it, including Olivia.

As irritated as he might be, protecting Olivia is what Danny does. But put best friends under one roof, add house rules begging to be broken, accidental nakedness, and pancakes in bed, and what started as a marriage between friends threatens to turn into the real deal…which would ruin everything.

Each book in the Kissed in the Sand series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
