Damn girl! These books throw me for loops with each one. I mean we start this book with Collins Drake fucking his girlfriend, the supermodel, and not being able to get off. Yep, I had a hard time understanding why he couldn’t achieve bliss, but I guess feeling cold while pounding into her wasn’t doing it for him. So the day isn’t getting off to a good start when his best friend from when he was a kid shows up unexpectedly on his front step. Not only was Mia Monroe his friend, she was also the girl he lost his virginity to the night before her parents moved them away.

After losing her job over a crime she didn’t commit, Mia is desperate for a change. Bank account low, she decides to head out to remind Collins of the pact they made when they were kids. So here’s to hoping he is still single, because she is calling in this marriage proposal. Wait up, girl —–

So things aren’t going to be cut and dry. Collins has the girlfriend (from Hell if you ask me) who he can’t seem to find any satisfaction. He’s not sure if he wants a relationship with her, but he is a stand up guy and doesn’t just dump her for Mia. He wants to reconnect with his friend, so the three of them start doing a few things together. Yeah, the bitch girlfriend lies and hides, leaving Collins to spend time with Mia.

Now, Collins doesn’t really cheat. He realizes he is having feelings for Mia, but he resists them knowing he has someone. In reality he isn’t getting anything from anyone other than his own hand. Honesty and loyalty mean a lot to him, but as little things keep popping up, he finds himself faced with hurting one person, while still hurting the other person no matter what he decides.

Mia for her part keeps having mixed signals, but she is at a crossroads of what to do with her life. Enjoying her time with Collins, she job hunts and tries to move on when Collins in a way leads her on. She feels silly for reminding him of their pledges to marry, but also it’s her one dream that makes her believe would solve everything. She never stopped loving Collins.

I found myself feeling ackward with this couple. Mia so desperate she will take scraps, but also not just sitting around waiting for them. Collins because he knows he is in a toxic relationship, but he can’t just give up on a few years of a relationship. I didn’t like how he would kiss Mia and then try to say it was an accident. Things were complicated, but I also loved seeing friends get back together.

Yummy…Collins can get it up with the right woman, so don’t think he is hobbled. He can wine and dine a woman with the best of them. Mia reminded him that things are supposed to fun. Growing up didn’t mean that you had to grow boring. I hated to see a heroine grasping for something in her life. Mia feeling lost in love, lost in her career and definitely not knowing what a five year plan looks like at this point.

This is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. The other brother’s and their women make their appearances, but that doesn’t confuse things. This is a … dare I say it … cute romance with some deep meaning. I found myself cheering them on!

  • Huh, sounds mixed up a bit and confusing for all involved, but I do love a friends to lovers romance.

      I love friends to lovers stories as well.

  • I love all the different feelings you experienced with this couple. Yay for books in series that work on their own! I still need to try this author. 🙁

      She is a new author to me and I had a love hate relationship with her stories at times, but I am going to keep reading them because that’s a good emotion to pull from me.
