Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.
But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?
It feels so good.

This was one of those reads that just make you smile from beginning to end. It was a super cute and incredibly sweet best friends to lovers romance that was well written. I sometimes find this author can get a bit wordy in her books which tend to make then drag in places, but I didn’t have that issue in this one. The pace seemed perfect, and I never felt the need to skim.
No OW/OM drama. It was fairly angst free. It had some smokin’ hot sex scenes. The secondary characters consisted of a super sweet dog named Cupcake and a less than friendly cat called Julia with a couple of humans thrown in (I am hoping for a Fletcher book myself). Both main characters were very likable. I LOVED Max. He was pretty much the perfect hero in my eyes. He was sweet. He was alpha. He was smokin’ hot. He was ALL in. He and Cupcake were the perfect couple in this one (*lol*). Rosie was a tiny bit less impressive for me and why this wasn’t a complete 5-Star read. Her behavior towards Max after the first time they have sex was juvenile for a 34-year-old woman and honestly, a little head scratching. That said, once she got her head out of her ass, I thought she was a pretty great heroine. Lastly, it was all wrapped up in a three months later chapter that was sweet, but I would have liked a further into the future epilogue, but I guess we may see this couple in the coming books.
All in all, this was an incredibly enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Two thumbs up from yours truly.
