“We can hang out,” she smiles back at me as she rolls away, “ and live our realest life.”Laney and Theo become the best of friends. Laney usually goes for the hot guys, the Troys of the world. It’s not that Theo is unattractive, he’s just overlooked. The closer these two become as friends, the more Laney begins to really see Theo.
We’re polar opposites. I’m way too country and he’s a whole lot of everything else. We shouldn’t fit, but we do, and our fit is nothing short of spectacular.Friends to lovers is one of my absolute favorite troupes and this was done perfectly. You saw the build up right before your eyes. It’s funny how people become so much more beautiful to you when you truly get to know them. The friendship, the anticipation, the sexual tension, and the explosiveness when it finally comes to fruition… gah! I love it!
I might’ve fallen slowly but I just landed impossibly deep.

“How did I not see this? How could I not have seen this incredible man for what he is? In a matter of life-altering hours, Theo has just become the most irresistible man I’ve ever known. If I’m completely honest, I’ve been falling for him, in pieces, since the night we met.”
