RATING: Buy It
He holds my heart in his hands as well as my palm, but I’m not going to tell him that. I know exactly what I’m doing here.
Being a fool.
Playing with fire.
Falling in love with my best friend.
Guys, Daisy Prescott has brought together two of my very favorite things into one swoony book, and I couldn’t be happier. I picked up Next to You based on the recommendation of a friend (I’m sending her a big hug and kiss right now), and didn’t bother to read the blurb.
Why would I? I trust her implicitly.
Imagine my delight then, when Next to You turned out to not only be as good as she said it would be, but also a friends-to-lovers romance *and* a fake relationship-to-real-love story.
Cue all the fluttering, pounding, twirly feels.
And be still my beating heart, because Stan + Sage are just divine together. Neighbors who banter. Friends who share. Fake significant others who can’t fight the feeling. It’s adorable. It’s sexy. It ebbs gently, with low angst and heart-happy moments aplenty, and every page of this book was better than the last. Until, in the end, my aforementioned heart kind of exploded in this messy, magical bomb of sweet sentiments, tender Afrikaans endearments and perfect love.
I know, I know. I’m being OTT and effusive while simultaneously whipping out ALL THE ADJECTIVES, but truly, if you fell in Love with Altitude (series title puns FTW), as I did with Stan the Man Bun + Sage Green with Envy, you’d be effusive too.
So, what are you waiting for?! Buy It.
“We have all night,” she whispers.
“It’s not enough time. I’m going to need forever for everything I have planned for us.”
