This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The irresistible Sawyer brothers of Blushing Bay, North Carolina, are back in this enchanting novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Forbidden Kisses and the Hero’s Welcome series.
Krista Nelson loves being a pediatric nurse. What she doesn’t love is her demanding boss and stressful workload. Fortunately, Krista knows she can count on a waterfront happy hour every Wednesday with her childhood best friend, Noah Sawyer, the one part of her life she never wants to change. But, like it or not, things are changing—because Krista can’t stop wondering what would happen if she grabbed Noah by the collar and kissed him like it was her job.
Bored of the superficial women he’s been dating, Noah’s putting his love life on hold so he can focus on his family’s high-end fishing business. Sure, there are moments when he’s tempted by Krista’s soft lips and killer smile—but her friendship is too important to Noah. How could he let himself jeopardize everything they share? The trouble is, if he doesn’t take the real risk of opening his heart, Noah might just let the perfect catch get away.

This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Stolen Kisses is the second book in the Blushing Bay series from this author. Each book is easily read standalone but I think you will enjoy them more if read in order. The characters are all intertwined in the stories. This is Krista and Noah's story and its a wonderful friends to lovers story. They've been best friends their entire lives although Krista has secretly been in love with Noah the whole time. When she finally decides to give up and try and find someone else suddenly Noah starts looking at her differently. Will they risk their friendship to explore what could be something amazing or will they continue to let it hold them back?
A very well done story that you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed the sweetness of this story! It was an easy read that took you through all kinds of emotions. This is definitely an author that I will need to check into more of her books!
like Krista and Noah and I love a good friends to lovers story. But while they have been friends for years and seemingly know everything about the other, they don't seem to talk, or listen to, each other all that much.
All it took was Noah seeing Krista out with another guy for his feelings to come to the surface...but she's dated before. What made this guy different? The realization that he had feelings for her seemed a little more forced than her for him...if you read book one in the series, you knew how Krista felt about Noah then.
Still, it was a good read that I didn't want to put down. I will say, I have very high hopes for Sam and Abby's story, so I'll be waiting (im)ptiently for that one!
I received an ARC from Netgalley and the publishers for an honest review. All thought are my own.
