This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she’s fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She’s going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.
And that includes her brother’s best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.
She doesn’t want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he’s not a nice guy anymore. He’s made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he’s looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn’t even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it’s been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend’s little sister.
Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn’t want Noah.
Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.
Just my cup of tea!
What an amazingly well-written book! I loved everything about it: the brother's best friend theme, the fun, chillax interaction between all the characters (they've all known each other since they were kids. Nan! Who. An fall in love with a wonderful Grandma?! Oh my! And the sizzling sexual tension you get when Emma and Noah are together in a room... It was awesome! Noelle Adams gave us a wonderful HEA romance, and I look forward to reading the other two books. Off to pre-order the 2nd one!
I'm usually a big fan of Noelle's books but this one was just ok for me. I had a hard time liking Noah's character. His father leaving them as kids has affected him to the point that he never comes home and has no ties. He's driven and successful, but doesn't commit. His reluctance to pursue Emma and his constant flaking on her kept me from truly loving this story. This is more a personal preference since I prefer a Hero that goes after the woman he wants. This still has the great writing that Noelle Adams is known for. ARC provided by NetGalley.
