Book 5 in the Love in Everton series and it was an awesome addition. A brother’s best friend romance and I loved it. I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading Finn and Abbie’s story. Abbie has known Finn for a long time and he never looked at her besides being the sister. That all changes when she moves into his barn-house. He starts to see her in a different light and the sparks fly between them. The chemistry was so good. I always love watching couples that have known each other for a long time finally see what was right in front of them the whole time while they were out chasing the wrong one. I am loving this series and this author. I can’t wait to read more from her.

I read an early review copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

You Make it Easy is a slow burning romance that claims two unsuspecting friends who finally see each other with new eyes. Finn and Abbie have known each other for years as Finn is her bbf’s brother. When Abbie becomes Finn’s tenant their paths cross more frequently where fires ignite and sparks fly. Abbie and Finn are adorable!

Nobody writes Small Town Romances like Fabiola Francisco! I’m seriously hooked on her Love in Everton Series and can’t get enough of them. “You Make It Easy” is Book 5 and it’s my favorite.

Finn is a walking, talking, Stetson wearing, sexy as sin, honest to God cowboy. Hold my Kindle while I swoon - he can leave his dirty boots under my bed anytime!! He’s also kind, thoughtful and caring. There are so many layers to him underneath the playboy facade that a certain shy, socially awkward woman he’s known forever has brought out in him. But and there is a but - she’s one of his sister’s best friends.

Abbie is a photographer by day, bookworm by night. She’s always been the quiet one, a bit of a loner. Watching her friends find their men has left her feeling lonely. She decides to open herself up to new experiences and starts online dating. Although she’s thirty, her experience with men is limited and in an interesting turn of events gets help from an unexpected source, her best friend’s brother a.k.a. her new landlord, Finn.

The more time they spend together the harder they fall and watching Abbie and Finn fall head over cowboy boots for each other makes this a fantastic Five Star read. Their happily ever after is deliciously sweet and will leave you with a huge smile on your face. TBR And Enjoy!

Holy Finn!!! Each book in this series just keeps getting better and better. I thought Harris was my number one man and he is still up there, but I’m not afraid to say Finn has knocked every guy in Everton off the top. He is a hard working, loyal guy that is a serial dater aka dine them and dash on them the next morning, but he is such an amazing guy behind all of that. I fell for him instantly and they way he showed a vulnerable side while trying to explore more of a relationship with Abbie, stole my heart. Abbie is the shy, nerdy girl with a heart of gold. She loves her family, works hard, loves her friends, and would do just about anything for anyone but with all that comes insecurities. Abbie doesn’t see herself as the hot girl or a girl that is pursued by guys like Finn, so this puts doubts in her head as they try to navigate a relationship. What Abbie doesn’t see about herself Finn sees it all and sees her as perfect flaws and all. He too has insecurities, but sometimes it takes others to help us dig deeper, find our true self, and become happy with what we see. I love these two, I loved we saw more of our favorite characters, and I can’t wait for Gavin’s story. This author has drew me into Everton, made me feel at home with this group, and I don’t want it to end.

This Everton series keeps getting better and better.
It’s not often that I fall for a heroine but I adored Abbie.
A little feisty and caring at the same time, she’s a woman I see myself having coffee with...
I love the setup of this story with the renovated house and Finn being the one to rent it to Abbie.
A bit slow-burnish, these two have such a fun connection.

When seeing life through a camera lens is a safer place what happens when you put the camera down and start looking at what is really happening around you? I loved the story of Finn and Abbie. For Abbie, being an observer was her norm, she didn’t mind, but she also saw life happening around her in the beautiful photographs she took, so when events force her out of her comfort zone, her life becomes one of her photographs.

I loved this book. Abbie was the friend we all knew, Abbie is you to some of us and then we meet Finn. Throughout the Everton series, we have gotten to know a little about them and to their story be told in this sweet, definitely sexy tale is one to make you want to move to Everton yourself. Finn might have a past to overcome but he definitely shows what he is made of.

You will fall in love. You will swoon. You laugh. You feel the the emotions of what it feels like to just not know your worth until someone else does. You will see the strength of family bonds. Everton is just one magical place.

I was given this book to read by the author in return for an honest review.


❤ Small town romance

❤ Slowburn

❤ Best friends brother


I really enjoyed this book, it was a super sweet read and it definitely made my heart smile. All of the characters in this book worked well together and the bond that everyone shared really shone through. 


You could tell straight away that Finn and Abbie had chemistry it was just a matter of time before the both of them saw it too. I loved seeing their relationship progress as you could see just how much they cared for each other. Unfortunately insecurity reared its ugly head and tried to kill what they have. Are the feelings they have for one another strong enough to get through that? Read and find out.


This book is part of a series but absolutely could be read as a standalone.


Thanks for the chance to read about Finn and Abbie ❤

From the first line, I was hooked on this heartwarming and gorgeous story between Abbie and Finn. Fabiola has a knack for writing sweet and swoony stories wrought with emotion, intriguing characters, punches of humor, and best of all sizzling chemistry.

Another fantastic small town romance from Fabiola!
The story of Abbie and Finn is so sweet and light hearted and did I mention a best friends brother romance!? Abbie is a shy, socially awkward photographer; trying to branch out and meet someone since all of her best friends have now coupled up and married. Little does she know; her love match was right under her nose her entire life. Finn is her best friends’ older brother and comes to her rescue when she finds herself searching for a home to rent. As they both realize their friendship is changing into something more, it turns into a sweet love affair. They grow serious pretty fast, but Abbie’s insecurities about Finn’s past and the fact that the small town is full of people that openly discuss Finn’s previous escapades bring their relationship to a screeching halt. Once Abbie steels her spine, she’s able to put a few people in their place and not give other people’s thoughts a place in her relationship with Finn. The story feels a little juvenile at times, but also relatable and the chemistry between Abbie and Finn made up for it.

Fabiola writes something good cowboys. This series is one of the sweetest cowboy romances ever.

She clearly didn’t disappoint with this best friends brother romance. Finn and Abbie where just too damn cute.

Abbie is best friends with Finn’s littler sister, so she grew up around him not thinking anything of him. He just sort of has always been there. So when she needed a new place to live and Finn had a new renovated place, of course she was gonna take it.

Finn is all 100% cowboy. Works on the ranch his parents own, loves it and being outside on his horse. What more is there to love. What he wasn’t expecting was Abbie, the nerdy bookworm he has grew up with, turning into an attractive woman. Why hasn’t he taken notice before? What has changed in his viewing of Abbie?

This story was just wonderful. Being one of my favorite tropes and a cowboy romance, oh yeah I loved every minute of this book! Looking forward to the next ones!!

I truly can’t get enough of Everton and the people that live there. Finn was by far my second best hero next to Eli. The way he became Abbie go to and the lengths he went through just to make her feel desired and open up just a little more was swoon worthy.

Only problem was he was fighting a losing battle with her inner self. I almost cried when her sisters came to see her. That scene alone put this book over the top for me.

I couldn’t see to put the book down. I am so happy to have found Fabiola as a writer she brings small town romances with a big feel factor.

This is the first book in Live in Everton series that I have read. Now I want to go back and read them to get the story on the other characters. I loved the story between Abbie and Finn. Abbie is best friends with Finns sister and has know him a long time. Finn is a playboy. But when He finds out Abbie is on a dating app he realizes that he has feelings more then just friends with Abbie. Abbie does have issues understanding how Finn could like her. I liked watching there relationship grow. I am looking forward to the next story in the series.

A small-town best friend's brother slow-burn romance.
Abbie is the nerdy bookworm and Finn is the hot cowboy player. They've known each other for years because of Averly, but when she needs a place to stay feelings surface even when they're fighting them.
It's a sweet read that's well-written and totally adorable.

(Warning: part of a series, but each have different sets of main characters within their world, each book has its own HEA)

I cannot get enough of this author and this series!

Intensely sensuous, wrought with emotion, and so well written that I absolutely could not put it down!
Each book has been cohesive and enlightening to the overall theme between these characters.

Best friend’s brother forbidden romance!

Finn has his story and it is with Abbie! I love how open Finn is once he realizes who he wants. He is sweet, romantic, thoughtful, protective, and completely satisfying. Abbie is shy and has her insecurities. But she is awesome and independent. These two do not think they deserve each other much less happily ever after together. But in all reality, their story is perfect and together they can make their own happiness.

Love the writing, the story line, and the small-town ranching feel. Grab this book today and even better, catch up with the whole series!

“Can I take you out?” His eyes pierce into mine.
“Is that smart?”
“Not what I was expecting,” Finn chuckles and releases a deep breath. “I don’t see why not. We’re two adults, deciding if we want to spend an evening with each other’s company.”
“Averly?” I scrunch my nose.
“Abbie, my sister doesn’t get involved in my love life.”
“But she’s my best friend.”
“So she’ll be happy for us,” he shrugs with certainty. “I’m asking you, do you want to go out with me? Forget everyone else, Abbie. What do you want to do?”
I close my eyes briefly before gazing into his brown eyes. I nod. “I would like to.”
“Great.” Finn’s smile lightens his entire face like the noon sun.
“And Finn.”
“Yeah?” He cocks his head as he waits for me to speak.
“Text me like a normal person.”
His smile grows, and he takes a step closer. “Are you free tomorrow evening?” His hand comes up to brush a lock of hair over my shoulder.
“I am.” The corners of my lips tilt in a small smile as my nerdy inner-self throws a dance party, moving with uncoordinated moves.
“Great.” Finn beams and leans forward. I hold my breath and sigh when his lips touch my forehead. “You’ll see I’m the right guy for you, Abigail.”
“My name’s not Abigail, Finn. You should know this.” I cross my arms and lift an eyebrow.
“I do know, but I remember how cute you were when you’d get all riled up when someone called you Abigail.”

Ahhhh Everton! I love it here.

You Make It Easy gives us more small town romance, this time with a sister's best friend twist.

Abbie is kind of quiet, maybe a little nerdy. She is a photographer and doesn't mind going it solo.

Finn is a serial dater. He's a love them and leave them kind of guy who breaks hearts all over town.

When Abbie needs a place to live, and Averly (Finn's sister) suggests she rent a recently redone place that Finn owns, the connection begins.

Abbie is trying a dating app, without much success. She enlists Finn's help in that endeavor and what happens is funny and sweet and ends up romantic.

They fight their attraction. They fight the feelings. There are definitely some huge bumps in the road for them. But watching them maneuver them, you will be cheering for them.

Abbie and Finn end up the perfect pair - he brings out her fun side and she balances him. Watching them come to this place made for a great story!

I really found myself relating to Abbie a lot. Shy, kinda awkward, and insecure, so I was enthusiastically pulling for her HEA. I probably swooned and squealed more than I should have. This series gets better with each book. It makes me want to be a part of their group. I loved the familiarity between Abbie and Finn. It was just an easy transition that flowed into more. I loved the sweetness of their communication, and the slow burn that resulted because of their respect of each other. Their chemistry was on fire and it was more delicious than the treats from The Mad Batter.

I cannot express how much I love visiting Everton! I truly wish this was a real town.

This visit introduces us to Finn, Averly’s brother, and Abbie, Averly’s best friend. I absolutely love this troupe; finding love with someone unexpected as your friend’s older brother.

Abbie is the shy, introvert “nerdy” girl and Finn is the complete opposite. Watching these two help each other to figure out what it is they are looking for in a relationship and also who they want to be as individuals was exciting. I could relate to a lot of Abbie’s fears and insecurities so watching her slowly overcome some of them was therapeutic.

We got a hint towards the end of this book as to whom may be involved in our next trip back to Everton and I’m excited to see how that turns out. Love this series.
