Susanne’s Review:

Light & Sweet!

Besties since college, five friends are basically inseparable and even vacation together. Truth be told, these guys consider their friendship to be wholly sacred!  

Liv is the only one who has lived her entire life on the straight and narrow….never taking a chance, until now.  Joining all of her friends on a trip to South Africa everything changes and by everything I mean her relationship with the one and only Lucas Deiss… and that spells trouble for “the friendship.”  Upon her return to Los Angeles, Liv needs a place to crash after disaster strikes. Of course, it’s Lucas to the rescue in more ways than one, and try as hard as they might, these two can’t fight those loving feelings.

For Liv and Lucas, these two have to figure out what’s more important, love or friendship, unless of course, they can figure out how to have both.

A light, sweet, cute, and wholly predictable rom-com that kept me entertained throughout.  

A buddy read with Kaceey.

Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Group Putnum/G.P. Putnam’s Sons for the arc.

Kaceey’s Review:

Are you still friends with your College mates?

Liv was extremely fortunate. On her first day attending college, she found what turned out to be her lifelong friends. A group of five who couldn’t have been more different. Yet together they managed to overcome their many differences, remaining in close touch throughout the years.

Each year the friends take an exotic trip together. That is, all but Liv. She happens to be the cautious, responsible one. She can’t just pick up and fly across the world! Absurd! But this year is different. She plans on joining the group in Africa!

At this stage of their lives can friendships survive? If so, could that same friendship morph into something more? Or are they destined to crash and burn? 

A sweet, friends-to-lovers rom-com. With just the right amount of chemistry to keep me engaged.

My first read by this author and plan to reach back to read her previous book, The Layover.

A rom-com weekend buddy read with Susanne.

Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Group Putnam
