M/F Friends-to-Lovers Romance

Tenley is a fun, quirky, kindergarten teacher who has always held a flame for her best friend, Jackson. Despite Tenley's dating life, she knows that unless she stops comparing everyone to Jackson, she might never find the one person for her.

Jackson loves his job. When he's injured, he realizes that he was in a relationship that was convenient and not one that was based on love and trust. When he truly needs someone, Jackson knows that he can always count on Tenley.

With new feelings emerging on Jackson's part and Tenley allowing herself to let her feelings out, can these two see what's been there all along? You'll laugh with them, yell at Jackson, cry with Tenley, and ultimately cheer for the home team.

I can't wait to see what's next in this series.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
What a sweet friends-to-lovers book. A simple game of seven minutes in heaven back in high school would have turned out much differently if Tenley hadn't gotten that text message from her mom telling her she was out past curfew. Instead of her being Jackson's girlfriend all these years, she's been relegated to the role of his best friend.

Fast forward thirteen years, Jackson has finally kicked Rachel to the curb, too bad it comes on the heels of him being injured and him finally figuring out that Rachel has only cared about herself all these years. Tenley is glad that Jackson knows that he can rely on her but wishes he would see her as more than a friend. Then the unthinkable happens – Jackson finds out that it was her in that dark closet all those years ago.

Jackson has seen a different side to Tenley since he has been injured and when he finds out that it was Tenley that gave him that kiss in the closet back in high school, he can't wait to kiss her again to see if the sparks are still there.

This book allowed the reader to take the journey with Jackson and Tenley as they went from friends to lovers and how they navigated the new course their lives are on.
