Paisley Morro has been in love with Eli since they were thirteen-years-old. But after twelve years of only being his best friend and wingman, the heartache that comes from watching him with countless other women becomes too much, and Paisley decides its time to lay all her feelings on the table.
Eli Jenkins has a life most guys would kill for: Dream job, countless women, and his best friend, Paisley, to be the girl he can always count on for everything else. But one conversation not only changes everything between them, it threatens to make him lose the only girl who has ever meant anything to him.
When tragedy strikes his family and Eli is forced to reevaluate his life, he realizes a life without Paisley isn’t a life at all. Only now, he may be too late.
Right off the bat Molly McAdams throws an emotionally charged prologue that hooked me in. Professing a long time, soul deep love to a lifelong best friend could never be an easy task.
“Is there any possibility of there being an us?”
Finding herself ready to move on with her life Paisley Morro, decides it is time to lay everything on the line. Friend zoned since the age of 13, Paisley has always been the wingman to Eli. Growing up together and always relying on one another, that love grew deep for Paisley- but was it reciprocated? The heartache that she suffers while sitting back and watching Eli take home woman after woman is enough to bring any girl to her knees- so it comes as no surprise that someone would eventually come along and sweep her off her feet.
“I hadn’t just lost my wingman and best friend……I ‘d lost the only girl who could touch my soul”
Eli quickly realizes that he cannot live without Paisley and that his life is much richer because of her- but he may be to late……..
Although this was a novella, Molly McAdams packed just as much emotion and punch into 112 pages as she does in a full length novel. A very charming romance indeed………
