Kelly Eadon returns to the blog today with the final installment in her Belmont Beach Brides series, in a fun and light friends to lovers romance. Please read on for my review of
Crossing the Friend Zone
Ryan is the self-professed “Minister of Fun”, convinced that life is to be grabbed and enjoyed, and relationships are not possible. He’s bold, funny, caring and most definitely someone you’d want to hang out with. Fortunately for him, Ainsley the wedding planner and friend, perhaps even bestie, enjoys his antics and their relationship is easy –because they are friends. Sure, there’s an attraction between them – but that might ruin their friendship, and what would they do then?
Ainsley’s last relationship just dissolved, and she’s decided that a series of rules and guidelines will be her best option. But, Ryan has the next three weeks to convince her to go for the gusto and just enjoy life – if a relationship happens, it won’t survive with rules an guidelines – and if you are him, it won’t even get a chance to start. But, then the “we’re just friends’ moments start to weigh on them both.
The banter, attraction and personalities of these two are perfectly suited, and the giant neon sign that flashes “perfect for each other” can be seen a mile off. But, knowing that you have a friendship that you rely on, and could lose that in crossing that line leaves the two completely conflicted, until the temptations are too great to resist. Adorable together and fairly low angst, this story was light and engaging: perfect in tone to wrap up the series and leave readers with a smile.
