4.5 - "Sometimes the best things in life happen in the most unexpected ways..." Stars!

The third book in the Graysons series takes a step away from its predecessors in that it’s set in Mexico, and not around Christmas.

Dean Grayson is cousin to Luke and Matt, the twin brothers the previous novellas were about. This is basically your man-whore comes good type of scenario with a side of friends-to-lovers to keep things moving along, and I really enjoyed it. Which in itself wasn’t a surprise as the

Dean and Carly have been friends and co-workers for a few years and, on the surface, things are great. Dean does his best to fall into bed with any and all attractive women that come his way, while Carly pines away for Dean who never seems to really notice her as a woman. You know, in that way.

When Dean’s cousin not so subtly suggests he bring a date to a destination wedding in Mexico because Dean’s family fears his wandering penis may get him into trouble with th

I’d never heard of Wyatt’s books until a blogger recently bought Until the Sun Sets to my attention. Fake relationships that develop into something more deep and meaningful have always been a favourite trope of mine. More so when done well and Wyatt did an incredible job of Carly and Dean’s relationship, I’m shocked as this book was only over a 100 pages, but the chemistry coming off these pages had me completely swooning.

Dean has the reputation of being a player, so much that his cousin suggest

I really loved the first two books in the Graysons series, and because of that I couldn't wait for this one. Because of how much I loved those others I really thought that from the first page I'd love this one too.

It's didn't happen.

I'm not saying I didn't like it because after a chapter or two I did start to get into it. I think my biggest issue was how Dean's cousin wanted him to bring a date just because he coul

Until the Sun Sets is the 3rd book in The Graysons by Tara Wyatt but can easily be read as a stand alone book. This was a short but fun and entertaining book with likable characters and a hot yet sweet friends to lovers romance.

When we first meet Dean I wasn't sure about him (I mean a guy who's family asks him to bring a date so he doesn't seduce the bridesmaids isn't exactly a guy anyone would want to get involved with). But having him take his good friend Carly works well since they have an es

This was unexpectedly hot & delicious. I love a romance trope that's based on a "fake relationship" & this one was even more fun because the two main characters happen to be best friends, too.

The story takes place on the beaches of Mexico, as they're attending a wedding. What begins as a little game of pretend, soon morphs into something so much deeper. For a quick read, this novella still packed a depth of emotional characters & an interesting storyline. I didn't feel rushed, or sw

Until The Sun Sets is the third novella in The Graysons series, it was a new quick and enjoyable read for me.

Carlie is Dean's employee, they worked together for two years and became friends at the same time, so when Dean has to fly to Mexico for his cousin's wedding and needs a partner to prove he isn't a playboy the best solution is to ask her to go with him.

I loved to read Carlie and Dean journey and the developping of their relationship,even if this was a short novella I closed this book fee

Dean is a bit of a man whore. So when his cousin decides to get married in a Mexico, they're understandably concerned about him causing trouble with the bridesmaids. To keep him in check, they ask him to not only behave, but to bring a date.

Carly and Dean have worked together for a long time and are firmly in the friend zone. A week hanging out in Mexico with her friend sounds like a good time, so she agrees to be Dean's date for the wedding.

But to Carly's horror, one of the wedding guests is

Until the Sun Sets by Tara Wyatt was a great and sexy quick read. This novella is about best friends, a destination wedding and a fake relationship for a short time. Easy enough, right?

Dean Grayson does not do relationships. Commitments are not for him. If thigs get too real, his fear strangles him and he walks away. So instead he keeps things light with no commitment. The only problem? When his cousin asks him to bring a date to his wedding so he does not get distracted. Who should he

Well paced with a great friendship to romance build up the investment into this couple's outcome only intensified as they worked through their stumbling blocks.

This is a great friends to lovers story. Dean & Carly are friends & boss/employee. Carly has tended bar for Dean since he took over the bar from his father. Dean has a tendency to date every attractive woman he meets & while Carly is attracted to him, she knows that would be the end of their friendship.

Dean had to learn the benefits of taking a risk. Yes, he could be hurt but his life is extremely superficial the way he is going. Carly has to gain confidence in herself & her car

What is it like to fall in love with your best friend only to have him throw it all away? Let me tell you that it sucks. Carly lays it all out for him. She become very vulnerable. Then, he breaks her heart. Of course, this is after they have already had sex.

Will Dean realize what a fool he is? Will he quit being so scared and start a relationship with her?

From the beginning, it is clear where this book is leading. That does not keep it from being enjoyable. This is a breezy novella that is a ple

I happened to win this novella in a giveaway and I'm glad I did. I love both the fake relationship and friends to lovers tropes and this story was a good example of both. Carly and Dean had great chemistry plus there's lots of fun banter that made this a light, enjoyable read. Dean is Carly's boss which may turn some readers off, but their relationship is clearly consensual and takes place mainly outside the workplace. I also liked the supporting characters some of whom were featured in other no ...more

This is my favorite kind of book. The kind where friends become something more and then wonder how they did not know it would be that good. Makes me smile every time.
Dean is a confirmed bachelor, they are the ones that fall the hardest. Once they wake up to what's in front of them that is. Where Carly can't wait to find that forever man.
While Until the Sun Sets, is a novella it leaves nothing out.

An excellent fun quick read. A friends to lovers story that made me laugh, swoon, and sigh.

Dean Grayson can't believe it when his cousin asks him to bring someone with him to the destination wedding the family is attending. Why? To keep Dean's hound dog ways to a minimum. To comply he asks his best friend Carly Jensen along. Nothing safer than your best friend, right??

I highly recommend this one.

Short, best friends to lovers novella. I liked the set up a lot but I always think novellas are hard sometimes because it's really hard to fit a plot and decent character development in the space allowed. I feel like we could have used more backstory with both Carly and Dean. Otherwise, it was a fun, short read, perfect for the beach!

She knew what she wanted. And she was starting to let herself hope that Dean wanted the same thing.

A quick, but enjoyable read overall. The fake relationship! I love this trope, so I was happy to see it being used here. I would have liked a little more time spent pretending before things got real, as I always enjoy the tension that creates, but this is also a shorter book, so I get why the author doens’t want to waste time.

The topsy - turvy ride of love plays out in this flirty friends to lovers read. Until the Sun Sets, morphs from fun in the sun to some steamy summer nights. Tara Wyatt makes sure to never lose her sense of humor as she tempts readers with some summer lovin'. Carly and Dean make a commonplace scenario feel brand new. It's obvious what happens next, but it's well worth the replay.
