Owen Hanson is living the dream—a Chicago firefighter who volunteers at a youth center on the Southside and he’s got his best friend Evelyn—who knows him better than anyone. When Evelyn starts hinting about wanting something more, Owen panics.

Sex changes everything but taking their relationship to the next level surpasses even their wildest dreams. Until Evelyn’s ex-husband shows up and could make even the most perfect couple crash and burn...

I don't usually like friends-to-lovers but this one is one of the few that I thought was cute! Owen and Evelyn have been friends for a while having bonded in a divorce support group. They really learned to lean on each other when needed and it's just adorable! They decide to take things further but can happily ever after happen when both of them have issues that haven't quite been resolved? The writing is great, funny at times and had me smiling. No dull parts, the characters were great. This is a great book if you just want to lose yourself in an engaging novel to escape life. It will make you smile and laugh and there are even a few parts that will tug at your heart. A wonderful read. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoy the friends-to-lovers trope and this is a good entry into that line of romance novels. Evelyn and Owen have become best friends as they bonded after both being in a group for the divorced. They are just comfortable together even though they have little in common from their professional lives. Evelyn is a producer on a local news talk show with hopes of starting a new show devoted to Chicagoans. Owen is a firefighter who spends most of his spare time volunteering at a local center for children who have nowhere to go after school. But they fit together. And they support each other by being the “plus one” at each other’s social gatherings. Of course, they’re attracted to each other and, like all such plots, they fear sacrificing their close friendship if they take their relationship to the next level. And once they do, they’re going to encounter new challenges that their innate love and trust in each other will be necessary for them to overcome. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.

I love best friends to lovers stories. How sweet is it that the person who knows you best is the perfect one for you! I enjoyed meeting Owen and Evelyn in the first books and was happy to now read their story. It touched my heart in the scenes where they both just knew what the other needed without any words being spoken. Their friendship is truly beautiful and wonderfully written. I did get a little frustrated with Owen at a crucial moment and wanted to knock some sense in him. I mean, I got where he was coming from, however, if he too two seconds to stop and really think about their situation, a lot of the drama would not have existed. But in the end, both Owen and Evelyn make us swoon and love them together. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Such a sweet story! A reminder that love isn’t always easy but it is worth it - and we all screw up sometime! Definitely worth the read. I’ll be adding the next one to my TBR list!

I love this series. This is the third book and this book is about Owen and Evelyn. They have been best friends for a long time. They are part of the same divorce support group. Everyone around them can see how much they love each other except for the two of them. They soon come to realize that perhaps they should take a chance on each other and start a real relationship. At first it is all great but then both of their insecurities start to come to the surf and they each begin to have doubts in each other. What happens when those doubts come out? Will they be able to savage their relationship and move on? Pick up this book and find out It is a really great read with some great supporting characters. I am really looking forward to seeing whose story is next. I am hoping it is Gabe's! Thanks Net Galley. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

When I met the characters in this series in the second book (since I missed the first), I instantly fell in love. I wanted HEAs for everyone but I also wanted to know so much more about the friendship between Owen and Evelyn. Owen and Evelyn are the very best of friends. They met after going through divorces and have carried each other ever since. They refuse to cross the line into more than friendship until they can't possibly deny what everyone else has seen since forever, they're perfect for each other. There was so much to love about this book but the hands down best part is how FIERCE (!!) Evelyn is. She rolls over for no one and I actually cheered out loud for her several times during this story and if I ever got to meet her, I'd be giving her a million high fives. She's so strong even when you would think the strongest would fall apart. I love this series and can't wait to see which one of this group gets their HEA next!!

This is the third book in the series and the first book that I have read from this author and I really enjoyed it. This can be read as a standalone. I love a good friends to lovers’ story and this was it. Evelyn and Owen helped each other through their respective divorces and they became closer and a relationship blossomed between them. I loved watching them fall in love with each other. It was wonderful. I can’t wait to go back and read the first 2 in this series and read more from this author. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

I really liked the characters in this book, especially Evelyn - I always enjoy a smart female who's attacking life on her own terms. Add in Owen, her very sexy firefighter best friend, and the hotness is off the charts. This is an entertaining friends to lovers story that has enough angst in it to make it interesting. However, while I love the author's books, this one moved a bit more slowly that her other books and seemed to lag in spots. Fans of the genre will want to read this one. Add it to your TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list.

This is my first time reading anything from this author and I really enjoyed this book from cover to cover. This is the third book in her series Daring Divorcees but is a stand-alone. It's Owen and Evelyn's book. Owen is Evelyn's best friend and both are beginning to wonder if everyone is right about them being perfect for each other. They both know sex will change what they have right now. Will they take the risk? I loved both of these characters. They both knew how to support each other. I just found myself rooting for them. #MyForeverPlusOne #NetGalley #Entangled Publishing

This is a classic best-friends-to-lovers story. Two people who have known each other for years and are comfortable in each other's company slowly fall in love. Evelyn and Owen met a few years ago and they've been close friends since then. They're always there for each other. And they're used to being each other's dates when needed. However, they aren't actually dating. The chemistry is there and love is there but they both feel that friendship is the only option for them. Soon, they are going to realize that their friendship may not be the same if they didn't act upon their mutual attraction. But is it wise to even consider that? There are so many things that can go wrong. Still, they won't know unless they try. It's a well-written story. I loved the characters and it has all the right feels for a contemporary romance. Also, I love it when best friends fall in love. It's the best. If you also enjoy that kind of stories then this is definitely for you.
