Many thanks to Justine and publisher Harlequin Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.
I have 5 romantic books to review in this tour. So here goes
Secret love soon became real when friendship transformed to love.
Caleb loved Ellie from the beginning, she married his best friend who died. Ellie wanted to start living again. A kiss under the mistletoe among other things was what she asked Santa. Caleb was soon caught in her plan until love blossomed in Ellie too.
My first book by Maisey Yates, I loved Caleb. I had never seen a man so helpless in the situation, loving what he couldn’t have. Then came his chance and he gave it his all. The chemistry between the two was unexpected.
The writing made their love story work, there were a few places where it veered, bit overall the vibe of friendship turning awkward then to lust and love was well done. The emotional connection was well shown as they were best friends. I liked seeing it change to love in Ellie.
Overall, a cute story of romance and love.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
