When we’re both needy and tactile AF, it’s no wonder everyone thinks my best friend and I are an item. But that’s so not what’s going on.
Cassius Britton, the mouthy basketball player for the Minnesota Eagles, is my soul mate. He has been since he shared his gummy bears and let me have all the red ones.
Because that’s the kind of person he is—selfless and sweet. But he’s so much more than that. He’s the man who rescued me from my homophobic parents. He’s the man who brought me and my sister into his family home and wrapped us in love and sunshine.
All of that, and so much more, makes us soul mates—which doesn’t mean he’s meant to be mine.
And when I become a dad and have to balance being a cop in our small town while dealing with grief, of course he steps up, because that’s who Cassius is.
But when I need to get married, when I need a man to step up and be by my side, maybe Cassius is too close. Too much of a risk.
Because how can I possibly marry my best friend and not start to fall, especially when the secrets between us are so explosive, they’ll either burn us to the ground or set our hearts free forever?
Trigger warnings can be on the Blurb page at the beginning of the e-book or on my website’s product page.
I love a good friends to lovers story. And this was guys who had been friends since they were 5. So I was ready.
Overall, it was a good story. I enjoyed that it started back when they were kids. But there were quite a few as they touched heavily on big moments in their lives. Then there is a time jump of like 6 years. I’m unsure of the exact time but college is over and they are both well established in their careers. I wanted to see a continuation of their connection instead of a time jump that brought them together because of a crisis.
Working through the crisis we get explanations of how and when different things happened. But I feel like those things deserved more attention than they got. A lot more.
It was an enjoyable read, but I wanted a little more.
