When Ella Jones’ twenty-first birthday ends with a bang – literally – she never imagined it would be with her best friend since freshman year, Ryan Owen.
A year later, after their so called “mistake”, they’re still best friends and about to rock their Senior year at the University of San Francisco. But when Ryan returns from spending a summer in Australia and brings back a friend, Liam George, who takes an immediate liking to Ella, Ryan starts to question the Aussie’s intentions with his best friend. The trouble is, Ryan has a girlfriend of his own, and Ella and Ryan swore they would never cross that line again – until they do.
They try not to let their second slip up affect their friendship, but when Spring Break forces them to vacation under the same roof; and Ryan’s ex walks back into his life, Ella is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ella continues to see Liam, Ryan finds himself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship strained for the first time, Ella and Ryan face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t be just friends. Maybe they are falling faster than expected. And maybe, deep down, they want to
I have been in such a romance mood lately and it doesn't help that they are always such fast reads. I also really love the friends to lovers trope.
Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.
The writing was light and fluffy. The dialogue was natural and had a lot fo wit to it which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I definitely laughed a couple of times. The description in the writing was not too heavy but just enough to create the scene. I really enjoyed how fast the pages flew by.
The plot was funny and filled with emotion. I loved how we got to first see the extent of Ryan and Ella's friendship before things got a little complicated. I really enjoyed how the two of them created this wholesome story and that everything didn't just happen in the span of a month but rather over steady couple of months.
Whilst this book was clearly about Ryan and Ella, I found myself wanting the other friends in the group to be more present. They lacked development and made Ryan and Ella the complete focus even when there were group outings in the beginning.
Overall, I really enjoyed the story. I loved how fun and comforting Ryan and Ella's relationship was. I also really enjoyed how fast the paced the story ended up being because I couldn't get enough of it. I will however say that Ella making things more complicated than what it actually was started getting a little old at one point. However, this book was an incredible friends to lovers romance book and it absolutely perfect if you would like something quick and easy to read. Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!
