Official Blurb:

Quinn and Carson have been best friends since second grade, inseparable but not romantic in any sense. Sure, he was getting more handsome every year, but he was her best friend. Off-limits. Taboo. Quinn refused to even consider him in any other role.
During their college years, they made a silly drunken pact to get married if they were both single when they turned thirty. Then they drifted apart.
Every failed relationship in her life has reminded Quinn of how special a man her best friend truly is, and how all other men fall short.
Now years later, goal-oriented Carson makes a surprise visit for Thanksgiving dinner with a newly made fortune and one thing left to accomplish.
Can both people get the lucky side of the wishbone?

My Thoughts:

I’ve not read many of the Second Helpings books from the Flirt Club authors; I’m working my way through them, though, slowly. A couple of the other ones I’ve read have been about someone coming back from the past and them getting together. I’m not sure if this was the premise for the collaboration or not?
I felt like Alexis Adaire really did the story justice. Carson doesn’t just appear out of nowhere having been gone for years; there is an explanation for his absence. There is information on how he and Quinn drifted apart but do still speak occasionally. So they are still friends. Everything about why they haven’t gotten together before is described as well. We aren’t left feeling whiplashed by how quickly the characters have done a 180. It all flows and makes sense. It made the story feel more realistic, and you could feel the love the two characters have for one another.
The author definitely captured the storyline the best way out of the few I’ve read so far; I was very impressed. Such a short amount of space to work with but it didn’t feel like a small story, but a fully blown and properly developed one.
