It was easy to fall in love with a Larsson—seriously who could resist any one of those boys? And while each them had taken turns featuring as Maya’s adolescent crush, there was only one of them who had been her best friend.

Alex Larsson.

She’d loved him the most, convinced they’d be friends forever. Which might have happened if Maya’s father hadn’t been a shady criminal wit

Alex and Maya were best friends since they were little, but at 16 they parted ways. Fast forward 10 years and they meet again. The chemistry between them is off the charts! What I really loved about their relationship was that they were truly best friends. They could be completely themselves with each other and that makes their love so strong. I am so happy they reunited after all those years and that they found their happily ever after.

This series is so good! I've really liked all of the books

A fun childhood best friends to lovers romance.

I am quickly becoming a huge fan of T Gephart, this is my third book and each time I finish with a smile on my face.

Alex and Maya were separated at the age of 16, when Maya moved away with her mother after she left her father, years later and Maya returns for a new job as a lawyer, when she meets her childhood best friend again she is shocked at the hottie lawyer before her, when she was younger she always had a crush on his older brother, her new

Five big stars for this friends to lovers romance, which almost feels like a second chance. It’s sweet and funny, they’re truly an adorable couple. They have amazing chemistry and a great connection combined with their childhood memories, inside jokes, and banter. The story is full of great characters from the series as well as some steamy scenes. It’s such a fun read!

Alex, I just love him. He’s so sweet, considerate, and caring. I really hurt for him with the whole dad fiasco and I was glad he

The prefect friends to lovers romance that had me laughing and smiling while reading it. Maya and Alex were best friends for a long time until one day Maya had to leave the state and didn’t know if she would ever see Alex again. Until Maya does and the chemistry is off the charts! Some angst and intense moments. But otherwise a perfect romance that leaves you swooning at the end. 5/5 stars

You know when you read a series and the last book of said series falls short of expectations? Well, this was not the case. This book surpassed my expectations and I even dare to say it was the best!

Maya Zaveri is coming back to California after an absence of ten years. She grew up very close to the Larsson boys, until her world imploded. Her father was caught in a Ponzi scheme and he absconded with the money he swindled, including money from the Larsson family. When Maya’s mother suddenly found

Please spare me a minute while I wipe away an errant tear; not because I'm saddened by this story, or that it's by any stretch of the imagination lacking in any way, but because there are now NO MORE LARSSON MEN!!!!
T. Gephart you're breaking my heart!

Now I'm not usually a fan of Christmas stories, but perhaps I can spare a kidney as a promissory note to convince Ms Gephart to write us one so I can get at least one more fix of the deliciousness of the Larsson brothers that have provided me with

My first book by T.Gephert and now I want to binge read them all. #1 Love was such a delicious treat. A beautiful heartwarming friends to lovers, second chance romance that made me swoon, sigh, laugh and cry. The emotions were spot on. It was sexy, sweet and witty with a bit of angst.

Maya Zaveri had crush on all the Larsson brothers growing up and each crush was a different kind of love. But the most special bond was with the youngest one, Alex. They were best friends and soulmates. But the sexy

5 Stars!

The #1 series is back with the sixth romantic comedy standalone in this series and OMG y'all! I think the youngest Larsson has officially knocked the infamous Eric Larsson off his top pedastal and given me a brand new favorite, the baby brother who will keep you swooning until the very last word.

#1 Love was everything I'd hoped this author would give for the last brother and final book... heart, heat, and steam... and she totally did, slaying their love story with all the words and givin

*ARC for review*

I have to say T. Gephart did it again. The perfect mix of comedy, love and action.
#1 Love definitely lives up to the standard of the other books of the series.

I had so many scenes that made me laugh out loud while at the same time there are so many cute scenes that make you swoon. My heart couldn't handle how perfect this book was.
So many romcoms overdo the comedy aspect and write in some really over the top stuff to try to be funny but this is never the case with Tina's books.

I think I’m going to cry for many weeks to come, with the fact that there are no more Larsson boys to follow Alex in #1 Love. I have fallen in love with each & everyone of these cheeky, talented, adorable, loveable boys & the girls that have literally turned their worlds upside down, with their courage, feistiness & kick ass attitude. It’s just not fair it has to end lol.

Alex stole my heart so quickly & smoothly, I mean he is a Larsson so I guess that was a given. This boy is a k
DNF @ ch 19

Unfortunately I just lost interest. Nothing to make me rage quit at all! I think I was just sorely missing the H's POV. I haven't read a book from just the h's perspective in a loooong time and I think I just prefer the dual POV.

Another thing was that they were childhood best friends and I think having flashback scenes from their childhood would've really made such a big difference! I knew why they instantly connected in the present but seeing them in the past would've made it a lot

5 Stars - The Boom will hit your heart.

#1 Love is such a sweet and sexy read. The story follows two best friends, Maya Zaveri and Alex Larsson that have lost touch due to shady dealings between their families. It’s been too long as far as Alex can tell.

From the first call that Maya makes to Alex. you are hit with hilarious banter that only this author can create. From the beginning you are drawn in and anxious to see where this found again friendship goes.

I think #1 Love is my favorite of the #1 series, it is a total swoon-fest.

Alex and Maya were best friends growing up, with Alex having to endure Maya’s ongoing teen infatuation with his older brothers. Never admitting his true feelings for her to anyone but especially to Maya. Unfortunately, Maya’s despicable father ensured Alex never got the chance to tell Maya how he really felt about her.

Skip forward to adulthood where both Maya and Alex are lawyers and forging their own paths. However, with

This is the first book I've read by T. Gephart and I have to say I am impressed. I enjoyed the story the characters, everything.

Maya was a fun character from the get-go. She'd been close friends with the Larson's from the time she was born until they found out her dad was the douche bag of the highest order.

I was in two minds about reading #1 Love, because as much as I was excited to start I also knew that it was closing a chapter on all of the characters in the #1 Series. But a girl has to just get brave at times, and that’s what I did, so as soon as it landed into my Kindle I dived straight in.

#1LOVE is the final instalment in the (#1 Series) by Tina Gephart.

Best friends to lovers troupe is one of my favourite genres and #1 Love did not disappoint. Maya Zaveri is the savvy, sassy lawyer, trying to face her past after the despicable dealings of her father which saw her family torn apart, while sadly pushing her away from her one confidant, Alex Larsson. Who happens to be a pretty impressive lawyer himself.

“Reconnecting, 5 stars”

Alex was a part of every single childhood memory Maya had. Then life as she knew it changed in a blink of an eye. Now she’s back and there is only one question, should Maya give Alex a chance to be a part of her adult life? Will she set aside her fears and pick up the phone? Only one way to find out.
Alex loved Maya. She was his best friend when they were younger. Now she’s back in town and there is no way he’s going to let her slip through his fingers

The perfect end to an excellent series. This book differs from the rest in the series by having a little bit of a thriller suspense element in it which just adds a fun new dimention to the sexual tension and comedy that is found in this series. Maya and Alex are awesome together. I also really love Maya's two lawyer friends who are almost like the buddy cop comedy sidekicks in the story. They are hilarious. The whole book is a fun and engaging read from start to finish. There are parts which wil ...more

I’ve loved this series! Alex is the youngest Larsson brother and Maya is his childhood best friend. She’s always had a crush on his older brothers (who were best friends with her older brothers) but loved Alex differently. They were inseparable. But maybe she loved him differently because he was her soulmate.

Years after Maya moved away following her father’s embezzlement scandal, Maya moves back to Los Angeles after law school, and looks up Alex. There is an instant connection between them, but

Two best friends who lost touch years ago who are reunited. Things happened in Maya's life that caused her to have to move away and she felt that her friendship would no longer be welcome. Jump ahead and she is back to her hometown and she caves and reconnects.

After a bit of awkwardness things get back to the way they were and its like they haven't lost time. They can be themselves around each other except now it seems that there is an undeniable attraction. Things get complicated and out of it

I love how easy this story is to read. The dialogue and events flow easily and quickly. There is sweetness and laughs a plenty, yet there is still plenty of tension. Alex and Maya have a connection that jumps off the page. I love these two together.

Alex is the youngest Larsson brother. He isn't intimidated by either his hollywood mega star, or his highly successful litigator, brothers. He is cool, calm and collected. Easy going and easy on the eyes.

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap.

Her lack of "plan" has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history.
