This is a must read for anyone who enjoys contemporary romances where the couple have been best friends and daren’t spoil that relationship despite being secretly attracted to each other. In this story, the couple grew up as neighbours, went to school together and he’s always been protective of her. He’s a MMA fighter training to win an important competition and needs no distractions. They’re best friends. She’s returning after moving away to work – and to get away from the pressure and demands of living with her family. Will they feel any different after the time apart? Will time have put a dampener on their potential romance or will absence make their hearts grow fonder? Can they spend time exploring the possibilities or will training, her new job role and family demands force them apart?
This is a lovely, sweet friends to more romance with plenty of angst and turmoil en route as both characters value their friendship and are wary of spoiling it by becoming more. The characters are brilliantly portrayed as is both their personal and relationship development. There’s plenty of angst and turmoil as these two are so determined not to ruin their friendship by acknowledging their feelings for each other. It is told from their alternating points of view so it is easy to relate to how each of the main characters are feeling and what they are experiencing. There are laugh out loud moments, parts where you feel like figuratively shaking them in frustration and other swoon worthy incidents. It is another great read by this talented author.
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Chelsea is smart, funny, gorgeous, and the best friend I’ve ever had. Ever since she left, I’ve been a wreck. I’ve been focused on keeping my family’s MMA gym afloat while I train and coach fighters, anything to not miss her more. But now she’s finally back, along with her grumpy, possessive cat, and things are weird between us.
By weird, I mean I can’t stop thinking about her in that way. She’s in the room next door, and it takes all my control not to storm in there, sweep her up, and bring her back to my bed. Even stranger, I’m pretty sure she’d be into it.
And this time, I’m not going to stop fighting until we’re more.
