Is it possible for a guy to turn on a switch and realize he’s been in love with a girl that’s been under his nose for over a decade? Ashleigh Franklin can’t decide.
Ashleigh wants the fairy tale. Ever since she was a kid, her best friend’s brother, Luke, has been her fantasy Prince Charming. Now he’s trying to convince her that she’s the one he’s wanted all these years. There’s no way it’s that easy to escape the friend zone.
Single after years living with a girlfriend, Luke has finally woken up. What he’s been waiting for has been right under his nose for almost his entire life. Can he persuade her that he’s serious and won’t break her heart?
A Wonder Woman costume, a bottle of tequila and a game of truth or dare between two close friends changes everything.

USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series and What the Lightning Sees. The novels and together each series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.
Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
I want to thank NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Ha this is one of those books that you don’t only get the first book but you get the whole series to read. And it wasn’t a long drawn out read either. It was a pretty fast set of books. I loved the fact that Ashleigh and Luke have known each other most of their lives and have helped each other through hard and sad times. It helps them build a stronger relationship and forges a bond between them that no one else can touch. But it is also a hinderance and it prevents Luke from seeing what he has in front of him for a very long time. I guess though that it is a bit of a blessing as well that when they finally get together its proof that they belong together. I liked the fact that Ashleigh makes Luke look at himself and his life before she accepts him just being ready to be with her. She in a way makes him grow up and that is a great thing to see in characters. We all a love story, but we don’t want one that isn’t realistic and its just perfect from the first second. Especially not when you have a character that comes out of a 2 year relationship in which he is not really wanting something serious and is suddenly ready to just jump both feet in. It sets an unrealistic tone that Louise Bay avoids by making Ashleigh the stronger of the two characters. I won’t lie I like the fact that I didn’t have to wait for each of the books to come out and was able to read through the entire series at once. I don’t think I would’ve been able to be patient if I had to wait.
I give this book 4 life altering kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
