Everyone knows not to fall in love with your best friend.

But when your best friend is Michael Becker, it’s impossible not to.

He’s everything our town knows a Becker brother to be: devastatingly handsome, charming as a thief, and the icing on the cake — a sentimental musician who’s never without his guitar.

And he was mine. At least, that’s what I’d convinced myself.

Our bond was born in elementary school, strengthened by circumstance and the promise to always be there for each other, no matter what. And the best thing about my life was being friends with Michael Becker.

Until it was the worst.

I watched him fall in love with someone else, and helped patch him back up when she left him behind. But when he drops the bomb that he’s moving to New York, I realize it’s my last chance to tell him how I feel. And I ask him to make one more promise.

One summer. One list of adventures to remind him that our small town has more to offer than memories of the girl who left him behind.

One last chance to tell him I’m in love with him.

And I’m just dumb enough to believe that maybe he could love me, too.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review ***

A very cute journey with a hint of slow burn, friends to lovers story. 

Kylie was in love with her best friend, Michael for a long time but he was definitely oblivious. A girl who had been his rock for all his life, watching him falling in love with another girl and also moving away. I felt bad for Kylie at first for this one sided love, but watching her making him realize how much she meant to him, showing the beauty of their hometown, not to let him go before trying to make him stay was convincing. I was rooting for them.

I appreciated the infectious good mood, the spark of innocence in the air and how the author managed to bring the main character together. In the way to tell him she’s in love with him, Kylie is going to think about more for herself, about her dreams and less about her “attempt” to make him stay.

Michael was about to see what was in front of him and this wake up call was kinda fun to watch.  To realize how he let her down, the only person that would always be by his side. Focusing on what really mattered, to see the real deal.

Their journey was cute, swoony and all the feels! Michael and Kylie might took a while to finally open up, I struggled sometimes with the back and forth past-present and the way their relationship went to best friends to lovers. I would have liked to see Michael work a little bit to win Kylie over.

However, it was a beautiful journey, which would definitely melt your heart! Enchanting and heartwarming!
