Goodreads: Paisley Morro has been in love with Eli since they were thirteen-years-old. But after twelve years of only being his best friend and wingman, the heartache that comes from watching him with countless other women becomes too much, and Paisley decides its time to lay all her feelings on the table.
Eli Jenkins has a life most guys would kill for: Dream job, countless women, and his best friend, Paisley, to be the girl he can always count on for everything else. But one conversation not only changes everything between them, it threatens to make him lose the only girl who has ever meant anything to him.
When tragedy strikes his family and Eli is forced to reevaluate his life, he realizes a life without Paisley isn’t a life at all. Only now, he may be too late.
Kritters Thoughts: Told through both Eli and Paisley's point of view, each are given the opportunity to tell their side of their story. Eli has loved having Paisley as a best friend and a wingman who can help get a girl or block a girl from his life, but he doesn't know that Paisley wants to be THE girl in his life until she has the conversation that sends him into a tail spin!
I absolutely adored the concept of this book - the forever friends who have to make a decision as to stopping the friendship or starting the relationship. Most everyone can relate to having a long time friend of the opposite sex and that moment where the friendship stays in the friend zone, ends completely or turns into something and it was so fun to read both from the female and male perspective.
As a novella in a series, it was great to see other characters make an appearance, but I am ready for another full size book in this series! And just as a caution this is definitely in the new adult genre so sexy times are definitely going to happen.
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
