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.
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.
FALLING FOR HER BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND is the beginning of a new trilogy; a trilogy that is about three male best friends who fall in love with each other’s younger sisters. I hope that makes sense, because it’s surprisingly hard to explain quickly and that’s the best I could come up with.
Emma had a huge⎯and unrequited⎯crush on Noah growing up, one that was obvious to everyone. Several years later and just as she decides to go on a six-month man-fast, Noah arrives back in town and seriously tests her resolve. I liked Emma, but there wasn’t much depth to her character. She’s nice, smart and very loving of her friends, but by the end of the book, that’s all we know about her. One could say that she was too nice, given that Noah hurt her feelings twice and she never called him out on it.
Noah, on the other hand, had a bit more depth to his character thanks to some issues surrounding his father. I thought we’d see some resolution between him and his father, but we didn’t, so perhaps we’ll see it in his sister’s story. To be honest, I don’t agree with how he is described in the synopsis. Sure, his handling of Emma made me want to beat him over the head, but I wouldn’t say he was ruthless, or that he wasn’t a nice or decent guy. He just had to stop being an idiot and face his demons.
FALLING FOR HER BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND is told in dual POVs and overall it’s a quick, light and easy read. I’d be interested in reading the next book to see who the couple is and what happens between them.
