Happily settled into my new position at FMK Weddings, I never expected to be presented with the career opportunity of a lifetime. And I definitely wasn’t expecting it to mean working with Bryce McKnight.
Bryce was the heart and soul of my childhood—my best friend.
Until life pulled us apart and we lost touch.
Our friendship picks up right where it left off—complete with colorful trash talking and wagers on Mario Kart showdowns—only, I’m pretty sure friends don’t make out in parking lots or have naked sleepovers…
The first time we met, I won Elliot Kincaid’s trust with candy and card games.
After everything I’ve done, it’ll take a lot more to win her heart.
Fortunately, I love a good challenge.
With so much at stake for us both, I know Elliot thinks we’re setting ourselves up for heartbreak.
I’ll just have to show her that our friendship was always meant to be the foundation of our forever.

I believe Elliot and Bryce may very well, be my favorite couple of all time. Growing up together gives them the feeling of always being in each others heart. Reconnecting after so long means they were just meant to be. From the time that he met her as a toddler, there was always a connection. Bryce got Elliott to speak her first words to him, after such a tragic change of events in her life. Even more so … he protected her and kept her under his wing, without ever batting an eyelash.
Being back in the same town, they were bound to see each other. Elliott felt a pull from the moment that she saw Bryce again. Bryce knew he wanted more, but he was afraid to let her in on a secret that he had. Afraid to hurt her and afraid to lose her. With the spark, chemistry and fire between them, can she stay away? Or will she give in to her true feelings? Will she fall and let her heart guide her into Bryce’s arms?
I truly love, love, love this story. I read it in one day. I simply could not put it down. Who cares that the family needs to eat … mama is reading!!! I absolutely can not wait for Xander and Sophia’s book … up next!
In the series:
C.R. Ellis is a Texas native who writes contemporary romance novels with plenty of drama and humor, and just enough heat to ignite e-readers and paperbacks everywhere. She can almost always be found attached to her laptop with coffee nearby and her two trusty canine sidekicks by her side. When she's not writing or plotting, she enjoys going to concerts with her sweet husband, dragging him along to see rom-coms at any theater that serves booze, checking off the next destination on her ever-growing travel bucket list, and trying new recipes.
Her passion for writing stems from her lifelong love of reading, and she often binge-reads entire books in a day. She's an unapologetic book hoarder, and her paperback collection is rivaled only by her massive shoe collection.
