My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a sweet best friends to lovers romance with very little angst and a nice gentle exploration of how it sometimes takes time to see what’s right in front of you.
I liked both characters, there’s a bit of the usual misplaced fears about losing friendships and not thinking the other man could be interested before they get their act in gear.
There is an odd side plot with a neglected teenager which I found strange as it didn’t really do anything much for the overall narrative, but otherwise, things run pretty smoothly.
It did feel at times like I’d dropped into the middle of a series and that I should know all the other people being mentioned but I don’t believe it is connected to anything else.
Overall, it’s an enjoyable read.
