Worth the wait, that’s for sure! I’ve been eagerly anticipating this love story since the start of the series, and it did NOT disappoint. It’s without a doubt my favorite so far, with a swoony kind of romance that just flows naturally and holds your attention from start to finish. I loved this bad boy hero who can’t seem to stay away from the quintessential good girl – they have some serious chemistry, a history as friends that makes their connection feel deep, and the kind of sexual tension that’s bound to snap at some point. I binged this baby in one sitting and can’t wait for more from the series.
The story follows Rian and Dylan, two people who have been in the same group of friends for the last few years. The friends all live in the same apartment building and know more about each other’s business than they probably should, so it’s like one big family. As a former foster kid, that family unit is important to Dylan, and he won’t do anything to screw it up. Rian’s been crushing on Dylan for years, but he either doesn’t know or doesn’t reciprocate, and she’s reached the point where she realizes it might be time to move on from the fantasy. So when a new roommate – who seems to have a lot of history with Dylan – joins the mix, it changes the dynamic completely. Suddenly, it becomes impossible to ignore the deeper feelings hiding beneath the surface.
I know that the title might have you worried that this is a love triangle, but it really isn’t. It’s much more about the sudden jealousy that sparks in our hero as he’s finally forced to confront his feelings. Throughout the first two books in the series, we knew where Rian stood but were left in the dark about Dylan, and I loved how it was handled by the authors. He’s such a lovable guy deep down and I thought he made a great hero. Plus, these two already have a level of familiarity that takes years to build, so it felt like there was a strong connection between them. It’s high tension but low angst and makes for a very compelling read. If I have one complaint it would be the big fight, but… I also understand why it played out the way it did. Regardless, I loved this one from start to finish, and absolutely look forward to more of these characters. I received an ARC via Wildfire Marketing Solutions and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sexy friends to lovers romance.
