I received this book from the author for an honest review.
This is one of my favorite friends to lovers books. Hailey and Max have been best friends for as long as they have known each other. They both have such strong feelings for one another but they both suppress those feelings because they don’t want to lose the friendship they have. In the midst of trying to hang on to their friendship and forge their own paths they find themselves drifting apart.
When Max receives Hailey’s wedding invitation in the mail, he realizes she has moved on and he is crushed ok maybe a bit more than crushed. However, what he does at the wedding shreds what friendship they have. That is until Hailey world is turned upside down and inside out. Max is there for her even if they will never be anything more than just friends.
I have to say Max was on my shit list but seeing how he stepped up and was there for Hailey not expecting anything in return. He was just there for her and was being the best friend she needed him to be for her. The things he did for her started to melt that big block of ice that built up around my heart toward him.
This book had my emotions all over I was laughing, crying then wanted to punch someone in particular. These two had so much to overcome and the back and forth of them wanting to take things further but then not wanting to ruin their friendship had my heart in knots. Love makes you do some crazy things. The comedic relief that Max’s brother, Micah, provided was stellar. He kept Max on his toes. I loved him so much and if he ever got a book I would be all over that.
