Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She’s spent six years pirouetting and pliéing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker -- Lily’s long time crush -- is finally single, she’ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice.
Reality with Blane isn’t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she’d always wanted.
West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more.
That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything.
I loved this friends to lovers romance.
A friends sit-com feel as all friends live in the same apartment block, share laughs and good times together, they wander into each others apartments and are a close knit group of friends but what happens when lines begin to get blurred?
A slow burn romance.
Lily is a ballet dancer who has landed the lead role in Swan lake and along side her is her dream partner and crush Blane Baker.
West is a teacher, a hottie, he's the kind of guy who just hasn't met the right girl yet, once upon a time he thought he had but didn't have the connection. West has one night stands and when he first met Lily he was in a relationship so from there they have both just friend zoned each other despite their closeness.
This is one of those relationships where all their friends can see clearly that West and Lily are in love with each other and are all just waiting for the penny to drop and one of them to be brave enough to make a move.
I loved the build up in this book. Lily's mistakes with her current crush, realising that not all fantasies are as good as they are built up to be and West realising after all these years that he is actually in love with Lily.
A great book with a great feel to it.
I listened this on audio and the narration was perfect. Looking forward to reading more in this series.
