I don’t usually care for the “second chance” or “best friend’s little sister” tropes so I was rather surprised when I started reading this that I had even chosen to. Guess I was in a strange mood that day. So bear with me please.
This was actually a nice little read. Nothing terribly complicated. But there was that “best friend’s little sister” thing going on. I personally think that is just so silly. I mean really, if this little pain in the back side suddenly becomes a gorgeous young woman, well fantastic. The guy has already seen her at her worst and has fallen for her anyway. I would think that would be a plus. Just my humble opinion.
Granted, this little sister did have some issues as a teenager that caused her brother and his friends to be even more overbearing and overprotective than some, but she is 25 now and has overcome those teenage issues. She has not just one, but two college degrees and runs her own successful business. So big brother really needs to back it off. She has more than proven she can now take care of herself and make good decisions all on her own.
As for the best friend. He needs to get over the “No more talking” line and let her speak a bit. He might find out a thing of two. But then, he might actually have to admit to himself that he feels more than he thought he did too.
This was a hot, though sweet romance. Not my favorite trope, but well done and entertaining. I did wonder about the brother and his new wife though. This book started at their wedding and issues with their romance was alluded to. Don’t worry. This did read okay as a stand-alone, but in my checking about the brother I found that it is a spin-off of another series by this author. Just a heads up.
If you are a fan of Rhian Cahill, you will love this. If you are a fan of “second chances”, or “best friend’s little sister” tropes, you will love this. If you just like a nice contemporary romance with some hot sex, you will like this. I nice enjoyable read.
