I'd love to give this book more than 5 stars!!
The characters are enjoyable and I love the firefighters banter as they laugh and joke with each other. I also love they way they stand up for each other and support each other especially if one of their own is down! In my opinion, this makes a great team and it shows teamwork! Sadly though and especially at my work place there is no such thing as teamwork.
I always say it's best to start out as friends. That's the best kind of relationship and then

Oh, my goodness!! This was a great read!!!! It had me from the first page!! I even stayed up late a couple of nights reading, since I didn't get much reading time in during the day!! I love the way Rose kept the faith aspect throughout the book, and that Renee would sometimes take the lead to pray, especially since she's been a Christian longer than Jake, and I love that it showed both of them still showing that we all have struggles with faith, no matter how long we've walked with God, and that ...more

Jake and Renee had me from the early chapters and I found myself rooting for them right away. I love a good friends-to-lovers story and may or may not have actually yelled at the book a time or two, telling the characters to wake up and realize they were meant to be. Their love for each other was shown clearly and realistically in the story, as were the struggles each had as they found their way together. The side characters and stories helped to flesh out the book and I'm hoping to see a couple ...more

This story focuses on a man and a woman who are best friends; but who begin to see each other as more than friends. But is it worth risking a great friendship to explore the possibility of more? My favorite quote is in chapter 18: would friendship be enough, or would he live to regret not admitting his feelings for her? The main character is Jake who who is best friends with a brother and sister. When he begins to see Ezra’s sister, Renee, he worries that pursuing a romantic relationship with Re ...more

Ahh, I loved this so much! I review books so high but it’s because I’m finding the best ones out there! I felt like I was watching a cute movie while reading this and I loved it. I loved the plot and how everything fell into place. Everything happened at perfect timing. This author has a beautiful writing style. I loved it so much and how it beautifully flowed with the story. Highly recommend this!

Ok, this book was the cutest! Such a good contemporary novel. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a contemporary story, and I forgot how much I love it! This book was so so good. I spent the weekend reading it and it was very relaxing. I loved the storyline and characters, and I couldn’t wait to see how it would all play out. I’ve read one other book by this author and she is very talented! She has a bright future with the genre. Definitely recommend this!

Enjoyable romance. Although it's part of a series one doesn't have to read others to understand and enjoy this book. Friends falling in love with each other but baggage, friendships, and protective brothers get in the way. ...more

I truly loved reading another Christian romantic book by this author! She makes it so realistic, and it completely captures your attention. Once I start reading one of her novels, it very difficult to put it’s apparent that she puts much effort in preparing the roles of her characters!

This started out a little slow for me, but it got better.
I've found that in Rose Fresquez's books, she ties up the loose ends.
She shows the good and the not so good of the characters and how when they seek the Lord, He helps them out.
Good book!

A sweet story but too many mini subjects and characters to keep track of.

What seemed wrong turned out to be right.

Jake and Renee both had a lot to learn. Jake learned that the baggage from his past has been forgiven by the Lord Jesus Christ. I think Renee may have learned that there's a time to keep silent and a time to speak. They both learned that God's plan may not be what it seems, but it is always best. Very well done!!!

I really enjoyed this book. I don't think I got into it the best because I kept having to stop and start it several times. If this crazy time hadn't happened and I could just read it I think I would have enjoyed it more. I loved the end though. Great storyline great, love this family series. Also, this was a new author for me with her second book. I will look into more of her. ...more

Very interesting book with a LOT of other stories referred to that would be great to read. Clean romance, awful backstory, trauma mentioned and scary situations. A very good read. Christian references but not overwhelming. Really enjoyed.

A great story

Challenges of many varieties: unrequited love, divorce, past family problems, how to move forward, close friendships, family relationships are some of the situations the characters deal with.

Not a bad story, but the writing is choppy, drawn out, and repetitive. Like, I think Jake’s reasons for not perusing a relationship with Renee was given in about every chapter. It got annoying. I lost interest in the story and just wanted it to end already...which it took forever to do.

She’s had a crush on him for 3 years. He’s her brothers best friend and thinks she’s off limits. But there’s something about her ad being her best friend isn’t enough anymore.

Something right by Rose Fresquez is a beautiful contemporary love story. The author has authority in this genre, so I was expecting nothing less than a fabulous story. Something right is about a firefighter who is trying to get his life together after he got divorced. With the help of his best friend and his best friend's family, the process of starting again was made easy. In the process of evolving and healing, he found himself getting attracted to a lady he would rather have as a family or fr ...more

Laughed, cried and pondered while reading this story. Started a little slow, but was so interesting that I couldn’t stop reading. This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed and appreciated her writing skills. Excellent show of real faith in everyday life, which I found so refreshing. Don’t understand the subtitle involving interracial relationship, as that did not appear to be a factor in Jake and Renee’s relationship. More about family, trust, baggage and faith. I loved that all the chara ...more
