Another knock out of the park from Sonya Loveday. She delivered a novel that was not only emotional and heartfelt, it was a story about seeing the love that has always been right tin front of you. A story about trying to do what you think is best for others. It brought all the tears. This was a best friends who are in love with each other type of story. You know the one, its mutual but neither has any idea. Well. this one has a twist. Once these two finally tell each other, they STILL don't become a thing. Both of them want the best for each other and neither thinks that person is them. Gracen and Slade killed me. I felt like I spent the first half of the book yelling t them, and the second half of the book yelling even more. I was NOT going to let Sonya not give me my happy ending. These two were so self destructive to each other, and then when Gracen finds herself with someone else, things got even more complicated. I just wanted the HEA. All of the emotions in this book. All of them. The anger, the happy, and grief. I love how Sonya manages to bring these out time and time again with her writing. I loved this novel. Don't fret, the ending is exactly what it needs to be. I can't wait for more in this series.


Gracen Lowell is on the hunt for a man—but not just any man. He has to be ‘the one’. Her only problem is that no one she’s dated has ever measured up to the charming qualities of her best friend. Slade Owens knows no matter how much he loves Gracen, he’ll never be what she’s looking for. And he dang sure isn’t going to stick around to watch her fall in love with someone else. Slade leaving the Owens’ family farm for an out-of-state job should put enough distance between the two to allow him to move on with his life and Gracen to search for her happily-ever-after. Gracen knows asking him to stay isn’t fair. Slade thinks leaving her behind is the only thing to do. Inexplicably drawn together, the best friends must decide if they have what it takes to own up to their feelings… before it’s too late.
