5 best friend Stars
Why 5 star? I was immediately pulled into the story, each time I put it down I was looking forward to picking it up again, wondering what was going to happen next, how Aiden and Lisa would get together. I love childhood friends to lovers story's and this was perfect. Did it blow me away? no but it had everything I could ask for in a friends to lovers story and I loved the writing style.
I haven't read previous books and it felt very much a standalone.
About the plot: Lisa has made one mistake after another and is slowly learning running away doesn't solve anything. With an alcoholic mother, no home, the loss of her best friends, Lisa still gets back up, I liked her character and her previous immaturity and bad decisions is simply a part of life Im not a Judge and I enjoyed reading about the lives of Aiden and Lisa as chaotic as Lisa's was.
A teenage pregnancy, a taboo relationship and it seems even when moving away Lisa still makes bad decisions.
Aiden was Lisa's childhood friend along with Chris but at the age of 17 Lisa crossed the line with Chris 's dad and her bad decisions cost her both Chris and Aiden and she lost them both. It takes two to tango and when all is said and done Lisa was still a child herself.
Aiden was always the Frenemy to growing up, the one Lisa would love to hate, three was a crowd and Chris was the one she was closest too.
Now in her late twenties Lisa has been away in Chicago and things still aren't going to plan.
Aiden receives a concerned phone call to check on Lisa and begrudgingly he goes.
Time heals and feelings change.
Aiden helps Lisa get back on her feet.
If she were any other girl, I'd kiss her. I'd take the lips that are parted just right for me to slide my tongue in and I'd listen to her moans as I backed her against the wall. But she isn’t any other girl. She’s Lisa, my best friend.
A steady paced read told in dual pov's, a read to curl up with and enjoy the characters and the internal battles both fight with a fear of crossing the friendships line .
Sometimes you have to endure stretches in hell, but it's worth it for even a little piece of heaven.
The trouble with before is an enjoyable read that I slipped into with ease, I would definitely read more from Portia Moore.
Our history made things harder.
We were associates out of convenience.
We tolerated each other.
I never saw her that way.
She never saw me that way.
She and I were never meant to be friends.
You’re not supposed to fall for your best friend’s enemy, even if the enemy is YOUR ex-best friend.
This isn’t the story of falling in love with your best friend.
It’s about falling out of hate
