This is my first Cindi Madsen book and I'm SO glad I took a chance on it. It was hilarious, endearing, sweet and sassy all in one delicious little story. Addison is the perfect Tomboy character! Her level of sass and sarcasm was right up my ally. Her and Tucker together, well that's just a lifetime of friends to lover chemistry that you can't deny. Add in some of the funniest supporting characters and town folk and what you have is a SOLID small town romance that rivals any I've ever read! This is a PERFECT summertime RomCom, on the beach, on the lake, at the pool, or even swamp side where the creatures lurk... pull up a towel and dig right in, I promise you won't regret it! <3

She hugged hum so tightly and something inside of him whispered, there you are. Exactly what I've been missing.

I'm not just friend zoned. I'm brother zoned. I'm Luke Fucking Skywalker.

You see, friendship is easy. You add fire, it gets tricky. But if you find a way to have both...

Addison Murphy is the funny friend, the girl you grab a beer with—the girl voted most likely to start her own sweatshirt line. And now that one of her best guy friends is getting married, she’ll add “groomsman” to that list, too. She’ll get through this wedding if it’s the last thing she does. Just don’t ask her to dive for any bouquet.

When Tucker Crawford returns to his small hometown, he expects to see the same old people, feel comfort in the same old things. He certainly doesn’t expect to see the nice pair of bare legs sticking out from under the hood of a broken-down car. Certainly doesn’t expect to feel his heart beat faster when he realizes they belong to one of his best friends.

If he convinces Addie to give him a chance, they could be electric…or their break-up could split their tight-knit group in two.

Hiding the way he feels from the guys through bachelor parties, cake tastings, and rehearsals is one thing. But just as Tucker realizes that Addie truly could be the perfect woman for him—he was just too stupid to realize it—now she’s leaving to follow her own dreams. He’s going to need to do a lot of compromising if he’s going to convince her to take a shot at forever with him—on her terms this time.

I'm a mom of 2 rad AF adults, 1 fresh baby and a super cute fur babe. Hospital administration by day, yoga instructor by night, travel junkie, shoe addict, foodie and avid reader in all the spaces in-between. I got my love of books from my mama and honestly can’t remember a time in my life where reading wasn’t a daily priority. I’m a sappy hopeless romantic who’s a sucker for 2nd chances, mature characters, and serendipitous connections. In an ideal world, you can find me on the beach with an icy cold adult libation in one hand and my Kindle in the other.
