Our thoughts...

J.H. Croix is a new to me author so I thought I would give this book a try. I was a bit nervous about starting with book 3 in a series even though they are standalones, but I was able to pick up the supporting characters rolls. Though I think I would be best to read the other two books first.

I do love a good second chance romance, even better having the character be best friends first. However, this was a bit of a letdown. Everything moved vary slow and was predictable. I would have loved to witness some scenes from the past; what made Mae and Rowan want to leave the friend-zone, a bit more about that night. I wanted to feel their chemistry and witness the angst and devastation. 

Overall, the story and characters are enjoyable and fun to read about. I truly believe the adding a bit more to the backstory and picking up the pace a bit would have turned this into a 4-5 star read.
