At a Glance: I never really felt the connection between the two guys. I never found myself rooting for them, so a good part of the book just didn’t do anything for me.

Blurb: When Chris is unceremoniously dumped by his longtime girlfriend, his best friend Thomas picks up the pieces and reminds him there’s more to life than his lost relationship. In the process of letting go of a relationship that wasn’t what he thought, Chris slowly comes to realize that everything he’s ever wanted may have been right beneath his nose the whole time…
Review: I wanted to like this story a lot more than I did. Despite it being a novella, I had a hard time pushing through it. Anytime I have to force myself to read a book it’s not a good thing.
The writing is technically solid and Blocke is a talented writer. I’ll read other stuff by her, for sure. The plot is strong too and friends-to-lovers is a favorite trope of mine.
For me the biggest issue were the main characters, especially Chris. I just never connected with the guy even though I felt for him when he had his heart broken early on. I liked Thomas a little more, but I never really felt the connection between the two guys. I never found myself rooting for them, so a good part of the book just didn’t do anything for me.
I’m not saying read this book, but I’m not saying don’t read it either. I am sure there are readers who will love it. Sadly, I wasn’t one of them.
