The Ransomes are playing matchmaker.
That’s not a good thing. At least it’s not if you’re Bodhi Lakra. The last thing in the world he needs is for his best friend’s family to start interfering in his love life. Has he been completely head-over-heels in love with Everly Ransome for years? Yes. But Bodhi doubts Ransome meddling is going to change anything. Everly sees Bodhi as her friend. Nothing more.
Friends aren’t easy to come by for Everly Ransome. It’s hard to open up to people when she can’t ever be sure that they’re interested in her—and not in getting close to her very famous family. That’s why her relationship with Bodhi means so much to her. He’s never once given her any reason to doubt his intentions. She’s always been able to count on Bodhi, and she can’t imagine that ever changing.
What Everly doesn’t know is that sometimes, change between friends is good. Sometimes the best friendships can lead to so much more. She just has to be brave enough to want it…

My Thoughts:

Oh, I do love this new Ransom series!
I have been waiting to see what would happen between Everly and Bodhi since the first book of the series when he first comes into the cousins/siblings’ lives. We have known for a while that he has a crush on Everly but was he so far embedded into the ‘friend zone’ that it would be possible to woo her and change everything?
This is their story, and what a corker it is! I think I felt the most affiliation with this storyline of friends becoming lovers as this is what happened for my husband and me. We were friends for months before one day I realised he was everything to me, whereas he knew I was the day he met me.
The story is full of ups and downs, and you are left wondering more than once whether things are going to work out well for our lovebirds. I did think the story had nowhere else to go at about the 60/70% mark. It seemed like we had reached the natural conclusion for the book; however, the author still has a few more shocks up her sleeve that keep you hooked right until the end.
This is a fantastic addition to the series, and I’m already sad that they will just be background characters in books to come. They are definitely my favourite couple so far. A solid five star read from me!
