This story is best friends to lovers story. Kelly and Chris are best friends for ages and they had a platonic relationship until everything changes and feelings are suddenly far away from platonic and turn out erotic and sinful. After denying it first they give it a shot but everything doesn't go smoothly. Especially Chris has a problem by expressing himself. Lovely story with great likable characters. I loved the animal part of the story, also the friends were great. The story has an interesting small supernatural part is funny and enjoyable to read. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
For Kelly Barrow the love business has been good to her. She gets to help others find their happily ever after even though hers didn't pan out. With a love of a wonderful family and a little help from her friends she may have the chance to discover her own fairy tale ending. Be Mine, Sweetheart is a friends to lovers romance. Chris may have been relegated to the friend zone, but he won't take that lying down. Gary has a way of pouring on the charm with a handful of heartache in between.
A great book of friends to lovers. Chris and Kelly have been friends since high school, in fact she was suppose to marry their mutual friend, until he died in the military. For the next ten years Kelly and Chris have been inseparable, but now Chris wants to take their relationship up one notch. But are they both afraid of loosing what they have in their friendship? Kelly is the owner of Something Borrowed, so she is always around the HEA. A fun read that I had a hard time putting down. Great characters, who would do anything for each other. This is the third book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. Loved this series.
This is a cute friends to lovers book. When Chris was thirteen, he had a crush on Kelly, but didn’t act on it as his best friend Ray asked her out first. The three of them became great friends , and Ray and Kelly become engaged. Ray is killed in combat a few years after high school. Chris moves back home to be near his best friend Kelly. Ten years have past and Kelly is finally starting to date again. Chris begins to realize that perhaps he has more than friendly feelings for his dead best friend’s girlfriend. Both of them have to get past the ghost of Ray to get to their happily ever after. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
I really enjoyed this friends to lovers story. I like Kelly and Chris a lot. Their past has their feelings all mixed up and it was fun to see them unravel and acknowledge those feelings. Kelly is the owner of Something Borrowed. With her business being all about weddings she is constantly surrounded by people in love. Her own HEA never happened when her fiance was killed but it's been ten years and she needs to get back out there and live. She soon figures out love might be closer than she thought. This is a very well done story with great writing and characters. I highly recommend it.
