When we were young, Samantha Anderson was the girl down the street. For as long as I remember, she’s been my partner in crime, in adventures, and in almost everything. Sami is fun and sexy, my greatest confidant, and my best friend.
From early on, we vow that our relationship will never change—through thick and thin, we’ll remain always and forever in the friend zone. We will not cross that line.
After all, I’m not a forever kind of guy.
Then that line blurs.
We amend our agreement.
Best friends become friends with benefits.
Is this new agreement the key to our future? Or will I lose my best friend?
MY ALWAYS ONE is a new, fun, and sexy friends-to-lovers contemporary romance. A steamy stand-alone, MY ALWAYS ONE is not connected to any other of Aleatha’s Lighter Ones and may be read on its own.

While I found Aleatha through her really dark Consequences series, I do also enjoy her lighter stories like this one when she writes them. And this one was so perfect! The friendship to lovers trope is one I do enjoy, and the way the friends crossed that line was perfect in this one. Plus, I adored Marshal, both as Sami’s friend, as well as when they became friends with benefits. And while this was pretty much a lot lighter than Romig’s usual stories, it still had a little bit of a surprise twist toward the end that was a little deeper than expected. Once again, I really liked how the author handled that, or should I say had the characters handle all of that.
Perfect summer read!
