I adored this heartwarming friends to lovers trope book!

The two main character's, Brody and Kate had such a special friendship which blossomed beautifully throughout the duration of the book. It was so refreshing to read about two people with such a close bond to one another without too much drama. Brody and Kate were extremely relatable character's and I found myself laughing along with their jokes, crying with them, and most of all hoping they would both realise and act on their feelings for

This had a good balance of sports, romance, drama, and sexy times. The first part of the book focused on Kate and Brody's friendship and how they both start to develop romantic feelings for each other. I liked the way they interacted, knowing each other so well and sharing grief from Brendan's suicide. Both are in new positions in their careers and trying to do well and succeed. Then once they decide to get together, they both have to get over their pasts so they can move forward together.

I totally loved this book!!

This book is such a fun, exciting read that touches on good times, friendships, and of course love.

This book keeps you totally engaged from page one through the very last page! I honestly had a hard time putting this book down!

I really liked the main characters, Kate and Brody. They were genuine, realistic, and relatable. They were easy to picture as a couple – the ones you’d go to for advice, cheer for, and even want to join for dou

This is a friends to lovers book that is steamy and sweet with low angst. It’s about Kate and Brody who have been friends since they were six. The best of friends. She’s pursuing her career and he’s starting to play in the NFL. She needs a place to stay while she interns for her dream job and moves in with him for three months. Eventually they can no longer deny their mutual attraction. I highly recommend this book to those who like the friends to lovers trope (and even those who don’t).

If I could give this book 10 stars, I would!

I am IN LOVE with Jaqueline's writing style. This book had me laughing and truly thoroughly entertained in a way I haven't been in a while.

Kaye and Brody have a true "best friend" relationship. Reading their banter and how they interacted with each other was pure entertainment. Like, I want to be their third best friend.

Speaking of interactions, seeing how they evolved from "I love him like a brother" to "I love him.

Take two people with charm and sex appeal, put in a small appartment, shake well, and wait for the sparks to fly!
I admit, I thought this would be just another rom-com, but it's a Terrific rom-com, with lots of witty dialogue and snappy come-backs, angst and dreams - and characters you really get behind and root for. A sweet and sassy friends to lovers romance - Kate and Brody are opposites in everything, but they know each other well. At least, they think they do. Apparently, there are hidden d

This book is definitely for all those girls that grew up with a boy that she always loved. I was certainly one of them and he still holds a special place in my heart. The fact that this book brought those memories back tells me it was a special book. This was a hard book to put down, I genuinely loved reading it.

The voice in Jaqueline’s writing hooked me from page one. I devoured this book and absolutely loved the story. It’s right up my alley with a strong female lead who serves up great lines.
The rest of my weekend will be reading all of Ms. Snowe’s other books.
Highly recommend for all fans of friends to lovers.

Take a Chance On Me is a fast-paced and steamy hot contemporary romance. With a friends-to-lovers trope that sees the characters starting off with a deep platonic love--and really fun friendship--that grows into a passionate one. Her acceptance of Brody, who he is and his lifestyle, makes it easy to see & adore him through her eyes. In return, his unconditional and protective love for Kate makes it a no-brainer that he'll fall in every way, hard. This was my first book by Jaqueline Snowe, an ...more

Kate and Brody
A great story with a perfect ending!
I loved this funny ( I mean, who thinks of bedazzling their sweat pants!), charming, over-the-top heroine from the first words out of her mouth, and the hero, well he’s just is to die for! And what’s not to love about this story? It’s got it all. An exciting romp through two lives complicated and fun beyond measure with plenty of angst, playful pranks, and moments of reality that zero right in on the difficulties of bei

Great friends to lovers book! Brody and Kate are best friends. There has never been any real attraction to each other, at least none they were willing to see. Kate has an internship and will be staying with Brody through the duration. Things get interesting and confusing while living together. I loved Brody, he was so sweet and pretty much all in. He was supportive and had very few doubts, if any in regards to the blossoming relationship with Kate. He was quite tortured and filled with doubts in ...more

Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

Kate and Brody are bestfriends since childhood, basically they know each other since forever. Having a crush from each other is a bullshit. But everything change when Kate move to Brody's apartment when she has internship.

I like the way the relationship change in this book, it gradually moves from feeling like a sibling (ew!) to jealousy. Living together as adults means they see each other more than friends.

This is a fun and entertaining book with strong characters in Kate and Brody who have been best friends since grade school. They are opposites in every way but so good together. When she needs a place to stay for a few months they figure it's the obvious choice to stay with him. This sets off their story with the author doing a fantastic job painting her scenes with their colorful banter and slowly growing sexual tension. She moves the story fluidly and had me hooked form start to finish reading ...more

What a cute friends to lovers romance! Overall, I enjoyed this book very much. I wish the romance part wasn't as drawn out as it was. For most of the book, it was back and forth about whether or not they should act on their feelings but when they did decide, BOY! did they! I liked how there was a little bit about how Kate was going to deal with the fame of having a boyfriend that was a QB - I wish the author touched on that a little more. I also felt like the ending was a bit rushed but such a s ...more

I’m not sure why the book ended so abruptly, right when it was getting good!! The part I read was good but now I’m wondering what happens after the spaghetti dinner, Kate’s 2nd and future days at work and if Brody makes the team!! UGH!!

I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Loved the fact that Kate and Brody grew up together and were best friends. Trying to keep their relationship platonic and drama once Kate moves in with Brody backfires. Kate and Brody together as a couple was fantastic. Loved how they were open with each other and their banter was a major plus. Fun read.

This book touched me deeply, on an elemental level, and then brought light to my eyes. Romance, friendships, work, play and goals all featured in a wonderfully fun book of life.
