Blurb :

Can a man and a woman be best friends without somebody catching feelings?

Travis Barber and Sade Styles are best friends of the opposite sex. Despite what everyone thinks, they are not getting busy...yet.

Co-owners of a popular barbershop/salon in named CoEd, Travis and Sade spend the bulk of their days together. But when Sade’s apartment lease runs out and Travis offers her the spare bedroom of his newly built house, will they end up sharing more than just the utilities?

This witty, fast-paced romance seeks to answer the question: can a man and a woman be best friends without crossing that fine line into the land of lovers. Best case scenario, nothing happens. Worst case scenario, they get to know each other a little too well and end up hating each other!

Are Travis and Sade making the best move for their friendship?

Book Musings :

Whoever follow my reviews know that best friends to lovers theme is one of my favourite ones. So no one will be surprised that I picked this one up for a leisure read. What I expected was a simple story of delayed attraction with the usual antics which would make me laugh and feel in turns. So I was pleasantly surprised with the unusual twists or rather the deeper look into the protagonists' actions.

There were no dearth of supporting cast in this tale. I loved the interactions of the people in the salon. It was refreshing and realistic. Usually I fall in love with the protagonists easily but this time, I wasn't enamoured of either of them till near the end. Trap and Sade, both of them, came across as superficial persons in the beginning more so Trap. Sade seemed better since she looked behind the facade of Ken. But then her actions before the finale made me like her less. Trap was such a playboy! But I loved his character towards the end. Both of their past kind of made me feel for them. Both had sufficient reasons to act like the way they did.

This was a short read. The pages literally turned themselves. But it felt a bit slow at times. I felt the author could have moved to the real meat sooner. The ending was kind of abrupt for me. I would have loved to know more of the couple version of Trap and Sade! All in all, it was a good read which tickled my sad bone along with the happy one.

I received a copy for reviewing purposes.

My one line review : A good read which touched all my feels.

My rating : 3.5/5

My reread factor : 3/5
