years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a
really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.

my book review
“I could be her plus one for life, if she’d let me.”
I thoroughly enjoyed this childhood friends to lovers romance! The blurb sold me so hard on this story and it delivered!
“For being a lifestyle blogger, I don’t have much of a lifestyle.”
Erin comes off as fun, likable, but closed off when it comes to relationships. She is dubbed the ‘Ice Queen’ at times. Erin did annoy me several times throughout the book, but she redeems herself in the end for me! I still can’t get over one scene in the book where she criticizes Reese… I will just elaborate about that I learned a whole new meaning for the alphabet
“”Which one of the nurses do you think will ask if you’re gay first?”
Reese is my favorite character in the book! Fully head first in love with Erin, but I would take him any day hehe! Reese is a NICU nurse and has plenty of confidence in himself. He initiates this wedding pact along with trying to show Erin and her stubbornness why she should go for them to be together.
All in all it was a sweet romance that I would tell me friends to definitely pick up! The author has amazing writing skills where I highlighted several passages!
