I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Two livesÔÇªas close to perfect as they can be.
Camryn Townsend has everything sheÔÇÖs always dreamed ofÔÇªan amazing family, supportive friends, and the perfect job. Everything a girl could want. Or is it? A trip back to her childhood home threatens to unravel her web of perfection.
Her problemÔÇªsheÔÇÖs in love with her best friend and sheÔÇÖs too scared to sacrifice their friendship for a love sheÔÇÖs always wanted.
Jamie BanksÔÇÖ life is the epitome of perfection. His company is thriving, his band is on the cusp of stardom, and the girl he loves is returning home.
His problemÔÇªthe girl he loves has been his best friend for as long as he can remember and heÔÇÖs not sure heÔÇÖs ready to sacrifice his best friend for a lover. Pursuing a relationship with the possibility of losing her has him second-guessing everything he knows.
Unspoken words are the only thing standing in their way.
I feel like this book straddles the line of contemporary romance and coming of age. ┬áWe follow Jamie and Camryn from when they were kids (via flashbacks and progression of the story) and watch them evolve into adults. ┬áRather than risk a friendship, they’ve chosen to hide their feelings for way too long. ┬áBut all that changes when Camryn comes home for an extended business trip. ┬áThat’s when the sparks start to fly as we watch these friends go to lovers. (That’s the contemporary romance part). ┬áThese two aspects are beautifully blended, and there’s a smooth, logical transition for the characters.
Without giving any spoilers, just know that Davenport writes a great plot twist which will leave you squirming. ┬áMaybe even a little shocked. ┬áHowever, her characters are beautifully developed, devoted, and interconnected. ┬áThe bonds we see between not just Jamie and Camryn, but their extended group of friends is heartwarming. ┬áAnd Jamie can most definitely be added to your list of book boyfriends.
I guess to sum it up, it’s a tale about growing up and consciously making the decision of what you want out of life and how you’re choosing to live it. Life isn’t always easy, but there are certainly rewards for not being afraid to live it. ┬áDavenport handles some very sensitive situations with great finesse, and I applaud her for her tact and storytelling.
You can’t go wrong reading this book. ┬áSo, go get your copy today.
