Publisher's Summary

Of all the guys, she falls for the one who’s off limits....

Emily Winters would do anything for her best friend Josie. Every week they meet for a catch-up at the Old Boathouse - an idyllic little café by the Thames where Josie’s boyfriend Jack works. 

As the summer draws on, life seems perfect. Emily’s writing career is taking off and she’s throwing herself into the dating scene. 

There’s just one problem: she compares all the men she meets to Jack. 

And none of them measure up. 

Now all she needs to do is figure out how to fall out of love with her best friend’s boyfriend. Because even when Josie moves to the countryside, and her relationship with Jack crumbles, Emily knows there are rules to friendship that you should never break. 

But can they be bent in the name of love? Is there a way Emily can get the man of her dreams without ruining her friendship with Josie? One thing’s for certain: when you’re in love with your best friend’s guy, the course of true love will be anything but smooth....

A wonderfully heartwarming romantic comedy

The best 💛

I absolutely adore Katie Villa as a narrator, I’m so grateful she’s done such a fantastic job with bringing these characters to life!

I love Jack and Emily’s story - I could happily read about them forever. Hannah Ellis has done such an amazing job telling the stories of all these friends from so many different perspectives, and the way their lives intertwine. Such a lovely story and my favorite of the series xx

Disjointed

This book seems to have been written by a different author. The way Josie is portrayed in Book Two and here are different; she seemed more hippie and carefree in Book Two and then a bratty tool in this one. The same goes for Jack, but I guess it has to do with perspective.

Regardless, I still listened to it because I have a compulsion to do things in order.
