You know that pact you make with your childhood best
friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely
and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?
This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to
make good on that pinky promise.
Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well,
you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at
backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.
But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for
years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a
really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.
He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart
is starting to cave. For my best friend.
It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But
when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re
standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to
walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.
ADD TO GOODREADS
Books like this one make me sad that I didn’t have a best guy friend to make my own pact with. The banter between Reese and Erin had me laughing out loud constantly. I loved the steamy scenes, especially how Reese would do something that is so often a part of sex scenes in books, and Erin would tell him that no, she didn’t like that. I loved that, because if you read all these romance books, like I do, you start to think you’re weird if you don’t enjoy something that always seems to be enjoyed by the women in the stories. And then, when she calls him out for his “ABCs”?! OMG! That totally took me back to my college days, and my sorority sisters and I prank-calling a guy I had a crush on. There was just so much in this book that was realistic, and that I related to so much. Another thing I loved was that we got a lot of the happily ever after in a few chapters at the end, something that I often feel is missing, even with epilogues. This is my second book by Carrie Aarons, and I know that it will not be my last!
