Publisher Description

Two childhood friends. Two broken hearts. One impromptu road trip to get away from everything. That’s all this was supposed to be. After all, I’ve been living in the friend zone for years now.\\nBut hockey heartthrob Jasper Gervais isn’t looking at me like a friend anymore. And he isn’t touching me like one either.\\nTo his fans, he’s the handsome, talented athlete on TV. To me, he’s still the lost boy with sad eyes and a heart of gold.\\nThe man I’ve loved in secret for years.\\nSo when my life falls apart on my wedding day, it only makes sense that he’s the one to swoop in and save me. And when his world comes crashing down around him, I’m there to return the favor.\\nBut the more time we spend alone, the more Jasper doesn’t feel like a friend at all. He feels like everything I’ve ever wanted and thought I could never have.\\nOur feelings aren’t straightforward though. They twist and turn around the pain of his past and the reality of my present.\\nJasper Gervais acts like he wants me.\\nBut after years of turning me away, he’s going to need to prove it.

Slightly Smiling Face“"Because we’re me and you. We’re us. Unlikely and inevitable all at once. We’re forever." Yet again another great book by Elsie Silver. Loved reading this as much as I did with the previous two! The story was interesting, I think it was great she didn't dwell too long on the problems the characters had. I liked how she portrayed trauma from past events in this book, it was well done. The childhood friends to lovers trope is one that's added to my list as something I like! ೃ༄ Sloane is a character I have come to adore. I love how unhinged she is, because she laughs at the worst times. I felt really sad for her when everyone around her tried to control her life and she didn't even realize it. Glad she had Jasper to make her realize that she could chose for herself and should never doubt it. She's a really sweet and nice girl. ೃ༄ I was interested in Jasper since I read the first book, so I was happy I could finally read this one. He's really shy and struggles with trauma too. He only talks to Sloane about it, which is so cute to me! I'm glad he found his person and realized no one would leave him and everyone just loves him. And what a gentlemen he is in bed, damn.”
