Falling for Her Brother's Best Friend by Noelle Adams

After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she's fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She's going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.

And that includes her brother's best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.

She doesn't want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he's not a nice guy anymore. He's made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he's looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn't even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it's been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend's little sister.

Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn't want Noah.

At all.

Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.

Mary Jo☆☆☆
A cute, sweet afternoon read. You know where it’s going and that each of the siblings are going to end up with one the brothers. All in all, a nice read with a bit of drama and angst thrown in.

This story is about Emma and Noah. Noah is back in town for the first time since his mother's funeral and only because his sister guilted him into coming home for the launch of her new tea room. Emma had a crush on Noah during their high school years and now that he's back, the old familiar feelings are back as well.

A lot of unresolved childhood issues face Noah in his quest to find happiness for the man he is today and a lot of the resolution takes place off the page.

I'm interested in reading the other two books of this series.

Noah left and never really looked back. He wanted to make himself a success and has done great in his business life. However, his personal life is filled with one-night stands and lacks any type of emotional connection. When he does finally get guilt tripped into coming home by his sister, he walks right in to Emma's web.

Emma has grown up to be a wonderful, intelligent woman... except when it comes to Noah. All through their younger years, Emma held a special torch for Noah. One that she was sure he knew about, but she was rebuffed and never truly recovered. When she sees him again, she is determined to not let him in again.

The best plans go haywire and both Noah and Emma have to decide if this chance is the chance to truly find happiness. Can they both stop running?

This was a predictable story and one that I enjoyed for an afternoon read. The other characters in the story were funny and I hope they all wind up with someone.

This is the first in a series, and sets up the relationships between the three friends and their sisters. In this installment, Emma has to deal with her childhood crush, Noah, returning to town.

Not only is Emma best friends with his sister, Ginny, but she has done the business plans for the new tea shop too, so she certainly can't stay away from him. Her recently imposed Manfast is very badly timed, but surely some rules are made to be broken.

Noah is a man who is on a mission – stay away from commitment so that he cannot repeat his father's disappearing act. His self-imposed exile has not made him happy, but he can't seem to break out of the cycle.

We are treated to some funny moments between the friends, some sexy ones between Noah and Emma, and some deep ones when Noah finally sees his father again. But best of all, we get hopefulness and the promise of a lasting romance between the two leads.

An easy read, with a sweet story and some great side characters who will feature in future books, I am sure.

Noelle Adams handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she reads any book she can get her hands on and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.
