Almost 4 stars A friends to lover's story....what's not to love??????
I have mixed feelings about this book, on the one hand I truly loved it and then on the other there were parts which, for me, just didn't work....
It's a story told from the dual perspective of our hero and heroine which is always a bonus for me......
"And Syd-innocent, lovely Syd-didn't have a lot of experience when it came to sex."
"Girls were like flavours to him and I wasn't one he wanted to taste."
Kyler is not only gorgeous and handsome but musically talented as well...."There was nothing sexier than a guy playing the guitar."
And I have to agree...completely!!!!
I loved the hero’s inner voice straight away, charming, charismatic, just lovely!
I loved a lot of things and so wanted to love the story more but if I'm completely honest this one fell slightly short of the 4 star grade for me....yikes...I know a lot of people loved it more....
I loved the effortless writing style, the theme, the characters, the dynamic between Kyler and Sydney; their relationship and friendship is really clear to the reader but the story for me was a little disappointing. I felt it was slightly contrived in places it was the guy going after kyler because of an ex girlfriend that annoyed me most, it was obvious what was happening and it just made me roll my eyes, and then Sydney did something that was just plain daft, with a stalker on the loose, imo... sorry I needed a little more depth and complex issues...just something more.
So, the first half of the book did not pull me in, as I would have liked, but the second half saved it for me.
From 50% on it started to HOT up....it was SMOKING HOT
and sexy as hell....Kyler and Sydney are dynamite together...WOW...the second half of the book bumped my rating up from the 3 stars I was feeling....Phew!!!!
There were times, in the second half of the book when my heart broke for them.....I love a book that pulls at my heart strings and makes them ache!!!
"I've loved you my entire life," he said, eyes locked on mine. "And I would love you for the rest of my life if you'd let me, Syd."
♥ A beautiful ending!!!
Read with the beautiful, pink ladies, Barb & Deanna ♥
