Overview

Tobias Gamble knew from a young age precisely the kind of woman he was going to make his. She was not going to be like his mother. She was going to be like the mother he claimed.

In other words, she was going to be just right.

And when Toby returns to his hometown of Matlock, Kentucky and claps eyes on Adeline Forrester, he knows she’s the one.

The problem is, his brother Johnny has a new girlfriend. And Addie is her sister. Last, Toby would do nothing to hurt Johnny’s chance at happiness.

Toby hangs around town to get to know the woman Johnny fell in love with. He also hangs around to get to know Addie.

But he’s fallen hard, and he knows the best thing for him—and Addie—is for him to leave.

Addie Forrester is thrilled her sister Eliza found a good, solid man. Johnny Gamble is the salt of the earth. The best guy in the world.

The best except for his brother, Toby.

Toby doesn’t know it, but Addie’s fallen hard too. He’s perfect, except for the fact that he’s hands off and it’s torture, being friends with Toby when she wants so much more.

Addie also has a lot on her mind. She’s got bills to pay, her young son needs food, Christmas is coming and her job at the grocery store just isn’t cutting it.

Toby is steering clear of Addie. Addie is steering clear of Toby. But everyone around them knows this is the slow burn.

Because just like Eliza and Johnny, Addie and Toby were made for each other.

About the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

I know this is hard to believe but I have never listened to or read a book from Kristen Ashley. I have no idea why that is and be assured I am going to rectify that as soon as I can. This is a friends to lovers story, a slow burn as the tittle implies that ticked every one of my boxes. Stella Bloom and Lance Greenfield, the narrators did a great job bringing this story to life and I thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Toby and Addi are two halves of a whole and the interaction between them and the secondary characters was on point. This was a story that I did not want to end and I loved every single minute of it.The characters were captivating and easy to relate to. One click this one I don't think you will be disappointed.

OMG people! Grab your tissues because you are gonna not only laugh your behind off at the banter between these two but this book had so many emotions in it that I can't even begin to explain how much it made me feel! I love this author and love most of her books but this book is one of her most recent that went beyond expectations on how much it made me feel! Like, whoa! Wait! Let me grab my drink before I continue on type of feel! So much love and emotions not only with the main characters but with most of the side characters that made you feel like you weren't just observing them but you were welcomed into the fold. This is gonna be a reread for me because I am so hooked!
