My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely adore a sexual awakening romance and when it’s coupled with a best friend’s brother and set in Aimee Nicole Walker’s interconnected universe, you know it’s going to be a triumph.
Julien and Topher’s story was everything I hoped for and also gave me so much more. Look in a dictionary for the word “smitten” and it’ll have a picture of me while reading this book.
If you’re looking for an angsty driven narrative, you won’t find it here.
Instead what you get is a beautifully sweet slow burn filled with flirting, humour and two wonderful families who fill their homes with joy and happiness.
There’s a small side plot which I suspect may head over into Chief Mendoza’s book, which is up next. And let me say, my excitement levels for that one are off the charts.
As was the sexy times between these two once Julien realised Topher wasn’t hiding his feelings or planning on running away.
There’s only a brief appearance from Sawyer and Royce, but we do also get a little bit of Rocky too and I just honestly love being in this world so I didn’t care. Julien and Topher carry the story perfectly on their own.
If you’re looking for a swoony and supportive palate cleanser which makes you happy and puts hearts in your eyes, this one is it.
