A friends to lovers romance…and then some.
Run a pie shop with her sisters for a year. Date for the first time at age twenty-nine. Don’t be terrified.
Well, she’s got the first thing under control at least. Mostly.
But this is exactly what a best friend is for. Advice, pep talks, matchmaking, sex education…
So what if her best friend is a guy? A very hot, tattooed, ex-Marine, mechanic guy? He’s definitely well-versed in everything she needs to know. And she trusts him. Who better to teach her the man-woman stuff she’s been missing out on?
But there could be one tiny problem. The only person causing her any butterflies…and dirty dreams…is her matchmaker himself.
I think I was most excited for the final book in the Billionaire in Blue Jeans series. There has been a subtle buildup about the comfortable closeness and friendship shared by Brynn and Noah in the first two books. Now we get to focus on them in Cashmere and Camo. There is a bit of Cori and Evan, and Ava and Parker, which is nice. Mostly, we have the personal growth of Brynn and Noah.
I enjoyed the changes in Brynn. She is now interacting with people and gets more involved with Noah. I’m so proud of how she developed. Noah has a much harder time with his past, Rudy’s instructions and his feelings for Brynn. The beginning of Brynn’s time where she had to date six guys was just kind of ridiculous, as was the absence of any previous experience.
In the end, it was all good. The dialogue was especially well-written. Brynn was incredibly honest with herself and this is always a huge win with me. Noah wasn’t as authentic, with himself or others. All three stories are fun with a bit of humor, have personal growth and are happily ever after.
