On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.
Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.
But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?
It feels so good.

So Good made me freaking smile and swoon. A story about best friends to lovers. As usual, Nicola Rendell knows how to light the readers’ fire with a hint of sugary sweet.
Tons of dirty thoughts later and our sexy handyman was up to show his true colors. Max is the kind of guy to be devoted to the ones he loves, a big heart, a bit alpha with his sensitive side, that would make you swoon. (I know I already told you early, but still) … le sigh…
Rosie, as Max’s BFF was trying to find her “Prince Charming” but was having some unfortunate dates. This endearing dreamer, full of life and adorably sweet was struggling with her house, which was falling apart.
I really adored these two, the banter so natural and the chemistry off the charts. Two best friends who seemed, as the story unfold more than friends. Going from sweet to hot, from happiness to more emotional times, sharing a glimpse of their lives.
I couldn’t stop watching these two admitting that their feelings were more than friendly.
As the reader got into their so sweet and endearing journey, So Good as a soothing effect, with a sparkling side. It was the kind of story that gave me a goofy smile, swooning and ran smoothly, when you just have to relax in a deck chair, under a parasol, with a cold very iced tea. The perfect read to enjoy without moderation on a sunny day. So freaking delightful!!
