A friends to lovers romance.
Life changes us all. But, not as much as the military. Ryan Wagner is fresh out of the service, and trying his hardest to settle into his life in Miami. The only souvenir from his time spent overseas is a shoulder injury which brings him closer to his best friend.
Lizzy ‘Lizard’ Packer hasn’t seen Ryan since he left for boot camp. The boy who left is nothing compared to the man who has returned. As a physical therapist, Lizzy gets to rub her hands all over his strong arms. It’s just a friendship. A friendship she’s cherished since she was a little girl. But, when the lines blur and then become nonexistent, will she be able to keep her feelings at bay? What happens when life throws you a curve ball, and nothing is as it seems? Sometimes you never truly see someone until it’s too late. For others, sometimes seeing someone is all it takes. But for these two, sometimes seeing is just an illusion that one day fades. Follow along as these two try to help each other seek the answers they’re both searching for.
For those of you who know me, you won’t be surprised that, even though this is the third book in this series, it’s the first one I’ve read. But, as stand alone stories, that wasn’t an issue for me. This is a series of novellas and, as such, I’m usually not sure if I’ll get enough depth from a story and the it’s characters with so few pages. This book, however, surprised me…and it made me wish it was a full-length novel so I could dig even deeper into this story.
A second chance romance, it had characters with some history with each other as well as baggage from their time apart. Ryan and Lizzy meet up again once he comes back form a deployment oversees. She’s always had a crush on him and he begins to realize that he’s wanted her as well. However, he’s got a lot going on in his life with the aftermath of his experiences in the military. Having seen active duty, he’s adjusting to being back and dealing with the effects on his mind and body. As they begin to get closer, their chemistry is clear but their doubts are many. There’s a twist that surprised me and had a huge impact on the characters…a twist I thought was really interesting.
I enjoyed this book and thought it had a great plot and I really would have loved to read another 100 pages about Ryan and Lizzy and their feelings for one another. However, as novellas go, this is definitely among my favorites. I’ll definitely check out this author’s other books!
