Her Best Friend is a wonderful book. It combines my favorite theme friends to lovers but also my least favorite one unrequited love. Amy has loved her best friend Quinn since she was fourteen. But then Lisa moved to town and became a part of their trio and it was Lisa, Quinn dated and subsequently married. Amy kept quiet through-out, sad as well as happy for her friends. She learnt to hide her feelings around Quinn. She dated and even moved on but that love never really went away. So, for the past 18 months she cut of that contact with her friends to be happier. She threw herself in fulfilling her dream of owning and restoring the Grand theater. Things go south and she calls Lisa for help and instead ends up talking to Quinn(they are lawyers). Quinn we find out is going through a divorce. Lisa cheated on him for 2 years. Things went south for them because of Lisa's ambition in life. Quinn has not told Amy about the divorce so when he comes to town suddenly at the Council meeting Amy is surprised and asks him about Lisa. Quinn comes through for Amy and she gets the Grand and seeing the amount of work it needs he volunteers to spend his vacation helping her. Amy is initially not in favor of this as in the past few months her defenses against Quinn have eroded because of not being in contact with him and when she finds out about Lisa, she feels guilty as well as hope. Quinn wants to get back his friendship with Amy. The question here which comes is about friendship, when things happens between them there is this question in Quinn's mind, does he want to loose his friendship with Amy?We also find out that things between Quinn and Amy were not one-sided during their teens but Quinn chose to keep Amy's friendship rather than gamble it on a relationship. I loved the way Quinn got Amy, he knew when she was lying, I loved how Amy shouted on Quinn and took care of him. The drunken confession of Amy's feelings made me cringe and happy in equal measures. The book was so well done. I will read more of her Super-romances now.

Marty Loved this one, too, Saly :) Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite romance book themes. I like Sarah Mayberry's writing style, no matter if she writes Blazes or Superromances. (4.5*)

Saly I am so glad this one worked for you. This is one of my favorite romance tropes too. You should also give Indecent Suggestion by Elizabeth Bevarly a try since it is also a friends to lovers story.

And Mayberry's writing just pulls you in.
