Loved this best friends to lovers romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a fantastic addition to this low angst and amusing series from Saxon James.
There’re few things I love better when it comes to romance than a friends to lovers narrative because the feelings and the love is already there.
Taking that step into the unknown when you have a friendship at stake is one of the hardest struggles in changing the nature of a relationship and Saxon nails the fears perfectly.
There’s no sudden realisation here, both men have always known the other was an attractive and good hearted person.
It’s more that once Griffin’s son has gone away to college and his wife’s moved out – an amicable split which had actually occurred 12 months previously – there’re fewer obstacles in the way.
Heath and Griff’s friendship is as solid as they come, so them sliding into a sexual exploration works perfectly.
The humour comes from their determination that things need to be kept platonic when it’s clear to see they’re utterly perfect for each other.
I also very much appreciated that Griff’s ex-wife Poppy is a solid and supportive figure too and not some harridan.
Can’t wait to see who’s up next! I’m putting feelers out for Orsen and Ford 😁
