My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
I’ll admit, best friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes. Throw in a sexy British accent and bad boy attitude, and the result is pretty freaking steamy.
I loved the characters and found them to be reasonably and believably developed. And I may have fallen more than a little in love with Jake.
The one thing that detracted from the story was the wonky timeline. The first part of the book, where the groundwork is laid, was a bit confusing as timing went. It also felt very much like the author was trying to quickly lay out the history between the characters and couldn’t decide how best to do it or the rate at which to move time.
I also was not a big fan of the ending. I felt like it really left us hanging, and not in a good way. In a “did part of the book get cut off”, looking for torn our pages kind of way.
That being said, I’ll likely pick up the next installment in the series.
