My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is just a truly beautiful interracial romance. There’s little in the way of angst, it’s gentle and perfect for a read when you just want to see love happening between two people who weren’t expecting it.
It’s not ordinary though, Riley’s storytelling is too good for it to ever be that. There’s a secret love element, there’s an absolutely fabulous secret kink element that in not going to spoil but which is incredibly sexy and quite a turn on.
There’s an accepting family and a best friend who gives the best advice and there’s two men who are wonderful together when, on the face of it, they have nothing which should draw them together.
It’s not quite a frenemies to lovers romance but there is an element of that as Lucky and Saint get off on the wrong foot at the start. But both men slowly reach out and the friendship turns into something deep and lasting.
I loved pretty much everything about this book. There’s a couple of awesome Easter Egg appearances from some of Riley’s other book couples and I loved that. I might have squealed just a but when I realised who was in the diner and who the group of LA friends were 🙂
This is a book to be enjoyed as it really is just a gorgeous example of two people falling in love.
