April Miller works for her bestfriend, Max Knight on his livery and competition yard. Their friendship has withstood many turbulent times, and while April is deeply in love with Max, she is also aware of his womanising ways and has refused to succumb to his flirtatious charms. When her ex, AJ, suddenly comes back with a business proposal, April finds herself torn between the two men.
My Musings :
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I will be honest. I picked up this book because it has my favourite best friends to lovers theme. But the book turned out to be more than that.
It was quite an enjoyable read. It was a fast read and I literally flew through the pages. Though it is primarily a romance, it has so many themes too. It deals with friendship, abuse and loyalty. The characters were well developed and they were realistic with flaws and cracks in their personalities. I loved April and Max as both individuals and a couple.
The story was complex and it appealed to my cross genre loving self. The only part which kind of confused me was the backstories of the protagonists which was told in time jumps. Other than that I had fun reading this tale.
My rating : 4/5
