Small Town | Friend’s to Lovers Romance
Can I just say that I want to PERSONALLY LIVE IN PORT SNOW! I’ll take any of the Knightly brothers (they are all charmingly irresistible), live through harsh winters (I hate winter), and deal with the small-town gossip JUST TO BE THERE. Gosh, this is one fictional town I dream about. New England is a beautiful place to live because we get all the seasons and while I prefer my winters to be nonexistent, I would take ALL the winters to live there. What a magical place! I grew up vacationing in Maine and Meghan Quinn writes the details PERFECTLY. I can practically smell the ocean and see the steam rising off a bowl of lobster bisque! Sigh… I love this town, these characters, and pretty much everything to do with this series.
Readers, this series is truly amazing. Not only can you visualize and practically FEEL like your living in Port Snow through the details Meghan provides in her writing, but you can CONNECT with these characters on deep levels. Sure, it takes some of them a little time to warm up and wear their emotions on their sleeves (ahem, REID) but connecting with them is so darn easy that they feel like they’ve been your forever friends.
I loved Reid and Eve’s love story. The banter, the bickering, the playfulness, and the emotions won me over. Nothing felt too serious on the surface, but you could FEEL the connection from deep inside your soul. Friends to Lovers romances are at the top of my favorite romantic tropes and these two truly delivered. There were a few moments that grated on my nerves (men can be so STUPID sometimes **rolls eyes) but Meghan showed us that we can overcome anything if you just TRY. I loved this. Reid hasn’t had the easiest time in the past few years- love curses, loosing your business AND best friend – so I could sympathize with his actions, but I still wanted to knock some sense into him. Good thing Eve is one tough cookie because had she not been things would have been TERRIBLE. Gosh I loved it so much!
Anyway, I feel like I’m rambling. I usually do this when I fall irrevocably in love with fictional characters and that’s exactly what happened with Reid and Eve’s story. I don’t want to say it’s my favorite of the series because I honestly love them ALL, but they did fit themselves into a special place in my heart.
If you love strong willed heroines, charming and goofy heroes, a friends-to-lovers trope, AND small-town romances then you’ll want to grab That Secret Crush. This book is magnificent!
