Best is often in the tabloids and most of what they print about him is true. He’s living the life of a bachelor and enjoying himself. He is s no strings attached kind of guy. Layla is a blogger and has sworn off dating and especially athletes. She also happens to be the little sister of Finn. Finn is Branch’s best friend. So when the guys show up at Finn’s family’s lake house they are surprised when Layla and Poppy show up there too.
Finn makes it known early on that Layla is off limits. But there seems to be an undeniable attraction between her and Branch. So what will happen at the end of their no strings attached weekend rendezvous? On a side note Poppy and Finn are a great secondary story.
This story is a feel good read and will leave you with s smile. It has all the aspects I love in a romance story. I’m also s sucker for the brother’s best friend trope.
This was a refreshing light hearted story, Ms. Locke has a way with words that make me love the sappy sweet elements of this story. I cannot wait to see what’s next from her.
