Best Friends, Secret Lovers
Do you like friends-to-lovers stories? What about forced proximity romances? Is your life complete when both of those tropes combine? ME TOO. Good news for us, Jessica Lemmon’s Best Friends, Secret Lovers is here to deliver.
Sabrina and Flynn have been best friends since college, along with pals Reid and Gage. The four now work for Flynn’s family company – Monarch Consulting – and Flynn has recently taken over ownership. Now, if that wasn’t stressful enough, he did so because his father died. Add to that Flynn’s recent divorce due to his (ex) wife sleeping with his brother (really, humans are the worst sometimes) and Flynn’s rope is a little short.
Reid and Gage and Sabrina – and everyone else at Monarch – force him to take a vacation, which he grudgingly does. Around the same time, Sabrina is forced out of her home because of plumbing drama and the two end up spending Flynn’s vacation in one of his family homes. The best friendship quickly turns into something more, but will they want to continue this evolution once the vacation bubble bursts and they head back to ‘real life’?
You know the answer as well as I do. Just like in Ms. Lemmon’s other novels, the dialogue is sparkling, the sexy times swoony, and I was delighted when these folks ended up with their happily ever after. This is the first book in a new Harlequin Desire series, and I’m excited to get to visit Reid and Gage in future installments.
