4.5 ☆

What I love most about this book is the characters and their friendships!!!

Elle is strong and sassy
Danny is protective, loyal and has a funny side (the perfect book boyfriend)
Luke is the worrywart
Alexa is full of cheer
and Addie is a sarcastic spitfire!

I want to be friends with them and hangout on Thursday nights when they all get together at The Black Rose!

I am still thinking about this book and characters days after reading it. I heard Rachel Platten's song "Stand by You" and immediately

Ms. Sheldon's second novel doesn't disappoint!! I fell in love with this crew in The Rub Down, and was thrilled to find out Elle would get her own book. I loved the story between her and Danny! Sheldon did such a great job showing their transition from friends to lovers, which happens to be one of my favorite literary tropes! Elle was faced with some difficult decisions in her life, and came out to be such a stronger person for it. And the ending was perfect! I can't wait to read more from this ...more

Our Time is the sophomore novel from author Gina Sheldon and the second book in her Rub Down Series. Our hero and heroine were introduced in the first novel, The Rub Down, and now it's Danny and Elle's turn to tell their story.

Oh these characters. Oh this story. Our Time is a friends to lovers story about a girl who has feelings for her brother's best friend and a guy who has feelings for his best friend's sister. At the same time, Our Time is so much more than that. Nothing could have prepared

Our Time is the second book I have read from Gina Sheldon. This is her second book in her Rub Down series. You meet all the characters in book one but you could read them as standalones if you wanted. I absolutely LOVED the Rub Down and was giddy with excitement waiting for the second book and she most definitely didn’t disappoint.

Danny is part owner of The Rub Down and a masseuse while Elle is an aesthetician at The Rub Down and is Luke’s (The other partner) sister. Now Elle has been through th

I have known Gina Sheldon for years at to my surprise last year she wrote a book!! I was floored (in a good way) that she was so talented!! To pour out your heart and soul into a story is not for everyone. Her first novel The Rub Down was a good story. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. So when she announced a second novel I thought hmmmm… should I read?? Will she be able to show growth as a writer or will this be one of those that I like, not love? Well, I am so happy I read!

This was my first time reading a book from this author and I would read her books again. This is the 2nd book in the series and it didn't matter that I hadn't read the first but I enjoyed this one so much I brought it straight away.

This book had me engrossed from start to finish. Had it finished in less then a day as I couldn't put it down. This book was brilliantly written and the relationships and friendships between all the characters kept you drawn in

Gina Sheldon has brought another great book in the Rub Down Series with Our Time. This time we get the story of Elle and Danny, and what a story it is!

Elle Stratton is a strong, caring, determined, and such a feisty woman. And just like everyone she has a past, but she is keeping some things close to her heart from her soon to be sister in law and new friend. Although her family knows everything, there are still things she even keeps from them- like how she still wants to close in on he

This second book in The Rub Down series is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy in this fantastic friends to lovers story!

Elle and Danny have been friends for years. Danny has seen Elle at her lowest point and never wavered in his loyalty to her. Somehow during this lowest of lows for Elle, they both fell in love with each other but neither realized how the other felt...until now. Danny has finally decided that it is time to claim Elle as his. He has given her time for old wounds to heal and he is

What can be said about Our Time? I love the story line, love the characters, I love that it was different from other books that I read. I love the brother's best friend aspect, overall... I loved the book!
Gina Sheldon takes you on an adventure through Elle's past. Elle needs to get through terrible things that happened in her past in order to move on to her future. She knows this, everyone knows this. Elle and Danny have secretly been in love with one another for a long time, but neither of them

An amazing read! Gina Sheldon has once again made us fall in love with these hard working funny characters. Elle is a realistic character who is not 100% sure that she deserves love let alone the love of the man she has a mad crush on after a few life changing decisions in her youth. This book is both heart wrenching while still keeping things lighthearted as you cheer for Elle to come into her own and embrace the passion and strength you know is inside of her. And if Im being honest I would hav ...more

4* read.
This is the second book in The Rub Down series but can be read as a standalone. This is Danny and Elle's story. They've been friends for years and at their lowest points they both fall in love with the other, nor realizing the other feels the same to. Will they both wake up and see whats in front of them or will they not want to ruin their friendship by pushing for more? You'll have to read it to find out.

An awesome 4.5 stars for this book!! I loved this book as much as The Rub Down. This Author writes amazing characters that make me want to live in the book and hang out and be friends with them. Elle is an amazing young woman; I love strong women in the books that I read! Danny is absolutely swoon worthy and there are some pretty hot sex scenes that had me trying to catch my breath at times! ;-)
I highly recommend this book and hope there are more to come. I'm definitely a fan!

Our Time is my first book from Gina Sheldon though it is the second book in her The Rub Down series. Each book is a standalone story with interconnected characters and can be read out of order. What really drew me to this book was the blurb and the fact that this is my favorite trope! I just can't help myself when it comes to girls falling in love with their brother's best friend! While there was a lot to like here, this one didn't fully deli

Our Time is the second book in this series and even though it is a standalone, I recommend reading The Rub Down before reading this book. I fell in love with Luke in The Rub Down because he is such a sweetheart. Well, Danny ranks right up there with him.

In the first book, we get fun and easy going Danny who helps Luke run the spa and I love their friendship. They are true friends who are more like brothers than anything else. Elle is Luke's younger sister, who has always crushed on Danny. Never

Grab your e-reader and towel and head to the beach or pool. Our Time is the perfect "beach read". Sweet, sexy and funny, Our Time brings back Luke and Alexa from The Rub Down (The Rub Down #1) but focuses on Luke's sister, Elle, and best friend and The Rub Down partner, Danny, in this warm friends to lovers sequel.

Danny and Elle have been close friends for a long time. Almost everyone seems to know the two have feelings for one another past friendship, except for them. The Rub Down is
Reflections of a Book Geek
This is the first book i have read by Gina Sheldon, I didn’t realise this was a second in a series and I feel I would have liked this better had I read the other book first.

This book was a little too slow for me, it kind of lost my interest but I pushed on and made myself finish it. I felt like once Danny and Ellie got together the story got a lot better.

The two main characters loved each other for years but skate around their feelings for each other because of circumstances beyond their control

Who doesn't love a good brother's best friend that you've been secretly crushing on for years and now you get to finally kiss (among other things) type of story? I loved it. Danny was so supportive and sweet to Elle for years when she needed him most. She went through a lot and he was always there. Oh and did I mention sexy, he was ridiculously sexy. There sure we're some hot scenes in this one too. Overall great read.

True love conquers all & makes you stronger - must rad

After reading Rub Down, I knew I had to read this book, too. Danny & Elle' story is one of true love, overcoming the past & forging on with the future. This book is a sweet romance that makes you want what special connection they have. Love can make you stronger. I was a little disappointed with the ending, but I really enjoyed reading this story. I look forward to reading more from Gina.

I didn't like this one as much as the first one but it was good. Again, not a whole lot of angst, just a good story.
