My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There’s not much better than the friends to lovers trope and in the skilled hands of Christina Lee, we are given a masterpiece in how to build up tension.
I loved Elijah in the other books in this series and was glad when he finally dumped Stewart (more on him later and what a delightful Easter Egg that was) because he was treating him like dirt.
Kam was more of an unknown quantity but I soon grew to love his solid and reliable presence in Elijah’s life and how Kam had slowly realised he was falling for his best friend once he’d been sidelined by injury and reliant on the other man’s help.
Chuck in a sweet dog, a wee bit of UST, some fear about irrevocably changing their relationship for the worse, a couple of smoking hot blow jobs and I was totally on board the Elijah and Kam train.
Eventually someone needs to make a move and I loved that it was Ginger the dog that helped Kam to finally declare his feeling, leading to a super emotional smexy times scene which was perfect. The epilogue is super sweet and we get to catch up with the other two couples too on New Year’s Eve.
And back to Stewart, the bonus chapter after the epilogue had me squealing as it had been discussed long and hard in Christina’s Facebook group and, while she says it’s not from an upcoming book, I am rather hoping there’s a “yet” firmly attached to that statement 😉
