“A steamy romance.” —Library Journal
Love isn't always loud. Sometimes it's silent.
Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can't hurt. Yet the guy they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O'Grady is attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.
Having been born deaf, Flynn has already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his brothers, Gabby is about the only person who's gone out of her way to treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he's banked his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never mind his personal life, wouldn't flow. Determined to ignore the antics, he's secure in the knowledge she's not interested in him romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he's wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the risk.
“The ultimate friends-to-lovers romance...A delightful, touching contemporary small-town romance.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
A fantastic read!!
To say I loved this friends to lovers read is an understatement.
Gabby and Flynn were PERFECT for each other! They saw each other, instead of "the good girl" or "the deaf" guy. My heart broke a bit for Flynn, and the judgement he faced from some, and also for the way he judges himself. He's hot and sexy, but doesn't realize it. Same goes with Gabby.
I loved catching up with the rest of the crew, and Flynn's relationship with Hailey?? OMG. Had me in tears. He's so good with her, and it's awesome to see her try to emerge from her shell, because he did.
A phenomenal book that I would definitely recommend one clicking!!!
An absolutely wonderful friends to lovers story. Gabby and Flynn worked so well together and the more they tried to resist their relationship changing the more difficult being together became. They have been best friends since kindergarten and while they have both been attracted to the other they never wanted to jeopardize their friendship to pursue the attraction. Their family and the rest of the town feels certain they belong together if they will just give it a chance.
A book you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.
Friends to Lovers
Loved this story of friends to lovers. They have known each other since first grade and did not want to ruin what they had as friends and coworkers. Gabby has always been known as the good girl and Flynn, who is deaf, has been known as the outsider always wanting to please everyone.
They make the perfect couple that you will fall in love with. I so enjoyed the love of animals they both share. There is plenty of laugh out loud lines as they fall in love. I did shed a few tears though too, for the love of animals that Kelly Moran shows.
This is the second book in the series, I now need to go back and read the first story because I am in love with the O'Grady brothers. I highly recommend this book.
