A WHOLE NEW LIGHT
Cyn McCall knew she could always count on her late
Cyn's life hasn't turned out the way she dreamed. Her husband died two years ago, and now she lives with her widowed mother and her son. Nothing interesting happens to her. The only bright thing in her life (besides her son) is her best friend Wroth (who happened to be her husban ...more
I like friend to lovers story and this fit this theme. The fact I appreciated the most was these two were truly best friends, joking about the hero's success with women, he being there for her when her husband and his best friend died and the best part was that both of them had never harboured feelings of more than friendship before they both take a trip out of town & are thrown in close proximity. This change of environment makes them see each other in a new light with both thinki ...more

I laughed. I teared up a little. I marvelled at how absolutely BLIND Worth had been for YEARS!
This is a great read that is quick, a little predictable, but LOADS of fun!!
Adva vagyon ugye a hősnő, aki özvegy - itt még nagyon érdekelt a dolog, mert nora új trilógiájában a három nőből kettő szintén az, így kíváncsi voltam, Sandra hogyan dolgozza fel ezt a témát - nos, sehogy - a hölgy cirka kétszáz oldalon keresztül vagy az önsajnálatban fetreng vagy a féltékenység cakkozza, persze néhányszor szeretkeznek is a főhőssel, a ...more
The romance between Cyn and Worth was sweet. I am glad they got the ending that they did. I found their emotions and what they said to each other both realistic and endearing. They made me smile alot. There was a bit of tension between then after they slept together. Cyn felt like she was betraying her husband b ...more
So the very beginning of the book was looking up but her reaction started t ...more
Nice, short and satisfying read. This is a story of two best friends (widow and confirmed bachelor) who came to see each other in a different light during their unplanned trip to Acapulco. The mixed emotions, reluctance and even guilt that they experienced when their feelings changed for each other were well portrayed. It was also interesting and kind of sad for me to revisit before 9/11 commercial flight experience.
The basic story revolves around Cyn and Worth, best friends from college back when Cyn was dating, then married, Worth's best friend Tim. The three friends seemed to do everything together, and Cyn and Worth's ...more

Wade is the very lovable bachlor that is fun to read about. He definatley made the story fly by. And his support of his best friend's widow makes him that much more endearing.
I admit that there could have been more complications to the story that just weren't ...more

For me this was a quick and enjoyable read. I have a soft spot for romances with complications and misunderstandings and there are more than enough of both in this. All in all this was a bit too fluffy for my taste, though. I think, this novel felt a bit rushed, the characters work through all of the different steps of conflicts with each other, their feelings and other love interests really fast, and there were many stories going on in the background th ...more
Sandra Brown is the best... ^ ^
I haven't read a lot of Sandra Brown but what I have read, I've liked. This story was well written with a good story line. Always loved that "best friends discovered they love one another," scenario. Something I'm ...more
I am an ABSOLUTE sucker for "friends turned lovers" books. This is that, but it is also about a man falling for his deceased best-friend's widow. An icky premise, but one that is entirely acceptable by the end of the book.
This i ...more
