"Baby, Yoda one for me. -- Eddie"
I...AM...DYING! This was the sweetest book! It's so perfectly filled with loving, heartwarming moments it'll leave you swooning... or at least it was like that for me.
If you're a fan of angsty romance with a lot of drama and stuff going on - this is likely not for you.
If you're a fan of heartfelt friends-to-lovers romance that is also VERY steamy and leaves you begging for more - this is more up your alley.

There are some funny moment and there are some boring/ recycle plot/ banter. Miss Loring intended this story for NA looking for light short reading.

If I found this book during my lonely Valentine Day, I might can relate better. Sadly, I just found this book just now. I do like Eddie. He is funny. He is also loyal. He is a dream BFF I can ever expect and he is a good looking. The sex scenes are sizzling hot as usual, with light jokes.

I am way behind my reading target due to vaccination hunting.

2020 was the year I set myself the goal of reading more new authors, Kayley Loring was one of them, and I've been addicted to her ever since. A Very Friendly Valentine's follows on from A Very Bossy Christmas perfectly in that we get the delectable Eddie Cannavale's story. Friends-to-lovers as well so I was one happy reader.

He's the same person, but I know more of him now, so I missed more of him... I guess.

The thing that I love about Lorings' writing is that

I freaking obsessively LOVED the first book in this series, so A VERY FRIENDLY VALENTINES DAY had big shoes to fill. This was a great book!...just not quite as good as the first.

Eddie and Birdie have been best friends since college and suddenly sparks are flying. Will they change from friends to lovers?

Birdie is perfectly quirky, smart, and hilarious! I loved her nerdy side. And Eddie is so accepting and likable and hot. These two have hilarious friendly banter! I adore them.

Sweet, sexy and a wee bit nerdy...

I really, really love the Very Holiday series and I'm absolutely stoked that I stumbled across Kayley Loring on Amazon. This was another sweet, sexy, funny and romantic story with lovable characters and an interesting storyline. They're not long stories and I easily finish them in a day, but they definitely hit the spot.

I can't wait to get my hands on more of the Very Holiday series and in the meantime, I will definitely be checking out more from this very enter

Kayley Loring sweeps readers up AGAIN in her latest romcom, A Very Friendly Valentine's Day. This book you guys. It’s so funny! I laughed through and through and couldn’t get enough of Birdie and Eddie. They are hilarious together and make the PERFECT fictional couple. I love how their story started off as them being friends which then progressed into more when they are essentially stuck on a train together and finally coming to

OH MY SWOONY GOODNESS! This book is sweeter than a big ole box of Valentine's Day chocolates, but one that leaves you feeling energized and renewed days later. A Very Friendly Valentine’s is the friendliest of love stories- it is easy, charming, and delightfully adorable. Feel good vibes all around. After 2020 was a raging dumpster fire- and 2021 didn’t start off much better- this feel-good, opposites attract, low angst friends to lovers rom-com was JUST the soothing magic my heart and soul need ...more
This a cute and sweet but also very funny book.
The amusing banter between these two characters really made me chuckle many times all through the book.

Eddie and Birdie have been friends since they meet in college and have a close friendship that has developed over the six years they known each other.
They are very close to each other and there has always been secret feelings and a simmering secret attraction between them.

Eddie and Birdie have been friends since they met in college. And now that Eddie’s a famous actor, the two of them have still remained close friends, despite his fame. For Valentine’s Day, Eddie is finally seeing his model girlfriend in NYC who he’s never actually met before. And he learns Birdie is also going to NYC for Valentine’s Day, but she’s taking a train ride, due to her fear of flying. So on a whim, Eddie decided to ditch the convenient plane ride and tag along with Birdie.

**4.5 stars**
A Very Friendly Valentines Day is a follow up to A Very Bossy Christmas. It is still a standalone, but does have some recurring characters. We met Declan’s brother, Eddie, in the first book and this is now his story. Eddie is a famous actor on a young adult TV show; very outgoing. His best friend, Birdie, is the definition of a nerd; very introverted. They are complete opposites in every way but somehow, their friendship has worked for many years. They have always had an attraction

I absolutely loved A Very Bossy Christmas, so I naturally had to read this one as soon as it released. It was a lot of fun!

Eddie and Birdie have spent six years as platonic friends, despite everyone questioning why they haven’t progressed into more. I am a complete sucker for any forced proximity scenario, which was wonderfully fulfilled in this one by a shared room aboard a train to New York. Filled with bantering text messages and voicemails, it was such a fast-paced read that had me giggling!

Gotta love your drunk besties text...from a bachelor I right? And then the “voicemail”. The chemistry between these two is unbelievable…and when they finally quit fighting, just….dayum. Remember Declan’s baby brother, the actor aka the Hollywood flirt….yup, this is his book...and his bestie. They take a train ride together to New York, and that’s when all the real fun and train shenanigans begin.

This book was laugh-out-loud hilarious. The train conductor’s announcements, and

I loved A Very Bossy Christmas, so when I saw A Very Friendly Valentine’s Day was out and it was sexy Eddie’s book I had to binge it.⁣

If you are looking for a steamy, laugh out loud funny, romcom you should pick this up. It was just as good as the Christmas story. ⁣

Birdie and Eddie have been best friends for 6 years, neither of them want to cross the boundary and ruin their friendship, until they quickly realize that they haven’t found their match because they are a match. ⁣

Ugh it pains me to DNF this but it pains me even more having to be in the heroine’s POV. I don’t mind nerdy characters but geez it was TOO MUCH!! I loved the first book and maybe I’ll try this again closer to Valentine’s Day but for now I just can’t.
4 stars

This is a fun, flirty and super sexy friends-to-lovers romance. It’s a standalone, but follows on from A Very Bossy Christmas (the heroes of the two books are brothers), and Eddie and Birdie’s story is a delight to read.

Eddie Cannavale is an actor on a hit TV show, and though he’s a bit of a man-child, he’s a very down to earth guy, and is still best friends with a girl he met in college, Birdie. Though they live apart for a lot of the year, they are still a big part of each other’s lives

I love best friends to lovers stories and the author really did Birdie and Eddie's story perfectly. This suited them just right. Such a fun sweet story between two best friends that never really crossed the romantic lines. Birdie and Eddie are both heading to NYC, Birdie being afraid of flying she books a train, and Eddie cancels his ticket to keep his best friend company.

These two, their messages kept me giggling, they just have so much love, friendship and so much fun together. Eddie is headin

Absolutely Fantastic!!!!! ♥️

I couldn’t stop laughing reading this book and the messages between Eddie & Birdie are the best! Don’t forget we get a cameo of the best crazy Irish cousins again!!! This was so good!

Birdie and Eddie have been best friends since college. They’ve kept each other in the friend zone either one not daring to take the next step.

Eddie is delusional with his Instagram girlfriend and Birdie being birdie they venture on a Train journey to NYC and the magic begins.

I really wanted to love this book. I enjoyed so much A Very Bossy Christmas where I first learned about Eddie and I was so excited that he was getting his own book.

But unfortunately it just didn't work. I was tempted a few times to DNF because I kept waiting for it to pick up, it did not. Probably the most unfortunate thing for me was not feeling the chemistry. These characters were best friends for 6 year yet I felt like they didn't know each other that well, especially Birdie acting at moments

5 freaky Valentine stars!

I legit have the biggest smile on my face because that’s what Kayley Loring does to you! I don’t know how she does it or how she writes these Cannavale men the way she does, but she definitely knows what the lassies want and gives it to them! I don’t know which brother I want more, and that’s a good problem to have. Again, this book checked all my boxes, but I’m beginning to feel like this is just the Kayley Loring way which is why she is on my faves list! She brings it

Soooo cute!

While I'm definitely more of a mortal-enemies/fierce-rivals-to-lovers trope kind of gal, I do like friends to lovers stories, when they're done right. And to me, this one so is!

Birdie and Eddie are simply delightful together and it was just so much fun reading their story. It was full of pent-up sexual tension, giddy feels and heart-warming moments. At the same time, the angst factor was almost nonexistent here and I know for some people that's something to be put in the con

Kayley Loring, where the flickering flackering have you been all my life?

Y’all, I was completely obsessed with A Very Bossy Christmas and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on A Very Friendly Valentine’s Day and read Eddie’s story.

Eddie is Declan’s youngest brother and we briefly met him in A Very Bossy Christmas.
Eddie and Birdie met in college and they have known each other for 6 years. She’s always seen Eddie more like a brother (or that’s what she thought) but after a voicemail left by a drunk
This is the fourth book by Ms. Loring that I've read and she has once again crafted a winner, an entertaining romance with witty banter and a main couple whose relationship evolved from friends to lovers in a journey that kept me glued to the pages. Featuring Eddie Cannavale, a secondary character from Ms. Loring's previous holiday release who definitely caught my eye and who I found to be a delicious hero here, this was a fun and flirty read from start to finish. After the chaos and emotional t ...more
