I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve read many other stories by Shiloh Walker before. They were mostly quick contemporary romance reads that I always enjoyed. Her stories are made up of ordinary everyday characters that readers can easily relate to. She writes love stories that happen to everyday people. He stories aren’t that unique, but I like them because these kinds of books have been tried and tested many times. The only thing is that Ms. Walker intensifies these stories and makes them steamier, so they become elevated.
I liked this book because it’s a friends-to-lovers trope. If you’ve followed my blog, you’d know that that’s my favorite trope. One of the things I liked about this book was the pacing. The plot was simple enough, and Ms. Walker didn’t complicate it with unnecesary conflicts. I liked the hero. Man, if I were single and I had a friend like that, I’d be jumping his bones too. I also liked that the heroine was very realistic. She had insecurities, of course, especially after what her ex did to her. However, she wasn’t one to just fade into the background and be closed off to other people.
Overall, I liked this book. I like the steamy scenes even if I’ve read thousands of similar scenes from her and other authors. I think I like that this book wasn’t really into heavy emotional shit.
Shiloh Walker has been writing since she was a kid. She fell in love with vampires with the book Bunnicula and has worked her way up to the more…ah…serious vampire stories. She loves reading and writing anything paranormal, anything fantasy, and nearly every kind of romance. Once upon a time she worked as a nurse, but now she writes full time and lives with her family in the Midwest.
