Margot Cooper doesn’t do relationships. But when she comes face-to-face with Olivia Grant—her childhood friend, her first love, her first… well, everything, she’s not so sure about that stance.
Olivia must be hallucinating. Never in a million years did the wedding planner expect her important new client’s Best Woman would be the one that got away.
When a series of unfortunate events leaves Olivia without a place to stay, Margot offers up her spare room. As they spend time in close quarters, Margot starts to question her no-strings stance. But will history repeat itself or should she count her lucky stars that she gets a second chance with her first love?
Holy smokes this book was HOT!
Bellefleur wrote one of my most favorite lesbian romance books in Written in the Stars, and she delivers another with this one.
Margot is starting to feel like the fifth wheel now that her friends are paired up with their special someones. She’s all for putting up a good front for the wedding planning of her best friend’s nuptuals until she comes face to face with the new wedding planner.
She hasn’t seen Olivia for eleven years since their childhood friendship imploded after a very hot and heavy spring break where they crossed the line from friends to lovers. Not only is it a blast from the heartbreaking past but she’s now also offering up her apartment as an option for her former best friend who’s now homeless.
I really liked non-nonsense Margot in Written in the Stars so I was excited to see her get her happily-ever-after. I just didn’t expect this to be so incredibly HOT!
Seriously, once Margot and Olivia succumbed to their attraction it was so on and Bellefleur did not hold back. I loved every minute of their reconnection.
Of course this book falls into that camp where you just want to shake the characters and say “just talk to one another!!!”
Seriously, all their angst from the past and present could have easily been avoided if they were just open and honest with one another. I can forgive them for NOT doing that as teens but come on. As adults, just be real with one another.
That being said, the writing was wonderful, the story flowed and I really enjoyed it. A great second chance, friends to lovers romance I highly recommend.
