Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Tea for Two #1
Title: Falling for Her Brother’s Best Friend
Author: Noelle Adams
Published: June 7th, 2017
This is a brilliant start to a contemporary new series which focusses on three young women who are best friends and have been since their older brothers became best friends fifteen years ago. This is a great introduction to the three pairs of siblings – Emma and Patrick, Ginny and Noah & Carol and Ryan. Emma and Patrick work together but they are also supporting the new business being launched by Carol and Ginny – a tea room in their home town. Emma is fed up with dating the wrong men and has decided to avoid relationships for the next six months. Then she discovers that her childhood crush, Ginny’s brother Noah, is coming home for the opening of the tea room after being absent for seven years. When he hits on her in the bar at the airport she realises he doesn’t even recognise who she is though the attraction between them is mutual. Knowing he’s now a hard hearted business man who runs from commitment and relationships, he’s another of those wrong men for Emma and he also knows he shouldn’t be attracted to his best friend’s sister but attracted to her he is! Life’s going to get interesting as they try to resist temptation!
This is a heart warming tale that also includes some touching discussions and turmoil regarding reactions to a father leaving to start a new family, no longer keeping in contact or showing interest in their original family offspring. The resulting turmoil and life choices are key to this story and impact on the development of the relationships for the siblings concerned. This is a story about families, friendship and romance with great characters, plenty of twist and packed with emotional turmoil. It is an engaging read and I look forward to reading more in the series in future!
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she’s fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She’s going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.
And that includes her brother’s best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.
She doesn’t want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he’s not a nice guy anymore. He’s made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he’s looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn’t even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it’s been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend’s little sister.
Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn’t want Noah.
Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they’re all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.
