No one finds their soulmate at first glance.

Dominic Torres did though. From the second he saw his best friend’s little sister, he knew she was the one for him. Fast forward three years and now she’s his best friend and she has him firmly in the friend zone. He’s convinced he’ll never have the college romance his parents had.

Until the day it almost happened.

Brooke Caldwell’s life fell apart two days after her tall, dark and handsome best friend almost kissed her. A split second of hesitation made her question her entire relationship with her best friend. You wouldn’t think that a kiss that didn’t even happen would make her question her feelings as much as it did. But all of Brooke’s friends had said he had a thing for her.

Unrequited love or a figment of her imagination?

When an argument gets out of hand, Brooke and Dom hit a breaking point that has both of them scrambling into new relationships. Even pissed off and broken, neither of them can ignore the other for long. From best friends to lovers, one night could change everything.

Our Thoughts

Brooke and Dominic have been best friends from the moment they met; people question whether there is anything more between them but they are strictly platonic friends.  Or that’s what they want everyone else to feel.  Dominic has been harboring serious feelings for Brooke but she’s got him so firmly in the friend zone that it’s almost not worth the risk of losing his best friend.  Brooke has some kind of feelings for Dominic but they have years of friendship between them and she does not want to risk making a move and screwing that up.  Together they have to decide if they should take that next step; and if they don’t can they live with permanently being ‘just friends’?

I’m a pretty big fan of the friends-to-lovers type of romance and I couldn’t wait for Brooke & Dominic to get their signals straight.  I’ll admit – I think I spent the majority of the book frustrated with these two.  They have such an incredible friendship and you just know that they should be able to grow that to an even more amazing relationship, but something keeps coming up.  They were right there & then they’re not.  I won’t ruin the book with spoilers – but I will say the author keeps the reader hanging on.  Every time you think you know what’s going to happen – it doesn’t!  I really enjoyed my ride on the emotional roller coaster this book turned out to be though; I was frustrated but then I got to the conclusion and it was worth every bump and spin we went on.  I had not previously read anything by Alyson Reynolds, but I am now eager to go find other books of hers to read.
