It’s always been her, and I just never realized. Now that I’m looking at her that way, I can’t unsee it… and I don’t want to. Alyssa has been my best friend since kindergarten, and these intense new feelings could cost me our friendship.
She’s the one I share everything with, good or bad. It makes sense to share my life with her. But I can’t risk losing the only woman I’ve ever loved, which will happen if she doesn’t feel the same.
Alyssa is loyal and kind and takes my breath away. I just wish it hadn’t taken me so long to figure out what’s been right in front of me.
Falling for my best friend is easy, but keeping it to myself while figuring out what to do about it is the hard part. Because in a small town, everyone knows everyone… and their business.
Sterling is the perfect guy—handsome, with a heart of gold and a protective streak. I know he’ll do anything for me… except maybe admit he feels the same way I do.
So, I’m stuck in limbo and am in love with my best friend. Just when I work up the nerve to finally tell him how I feel, everything changes with a confession and two words: stay tonight.
The friendship that Alyssa shares with Sterling started when they were children and has only grown stronger through the years. She knows him just as well as she knows herself and she can’t imagine life without him in it so despite her attraction to him she isn’t about to jeopardize one of the most important relationships in her life.
Sterling has always known how important that Alyssa is in his life as they have been there for each other whether is a success to be celebrated or a difficult time to overcome. He has been denying his true feelings for her however all it will take is his family and one night to realize that some rewards are worth the risk.
The friends to lovers’ story of Alyssa and Sterling is one you don’t want to miss. I enjoyed seeing them push the parameters of their relationship and see what they truly are to each other and catching up with the rest of the family is always fun.
