The Best Friend Bargain (Kisses In The Sand, #3) by Robin Bielman ~ Release Day & Review

Source:  Received eBook copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Olivia Lincoln has a plan guaranteed to get her life back on track. A plan that involves her best friend, Danny. And he’s on board, too…until she blurts out that they’re engaged and expecting a baby, and the news spreads like wildfire.

The problem? Danny doesn’t do marriage. Or family. And everyone knows it, including Olivia.
As irritated as he might be, protecting Olivia is what Danny does. But put best friends under one roof, add house rules begging to be broken, accidental nakedness, and pancakes in bed, and what started as a marriage between friends threatens to turn into the real deal…which would ruin everything.

Now Available from Entangled Lovestruck


I love friends to lovers stories and I really love pretending stories.  When those get combined, it's an invitation to hide in my snuggle chair and devour a great story.  Yep, that's exactly what happened, too, as I read this one straight through.

These two are adorable.  They've been best friends for fifteen years and know each other better than anyone else.  They support each other and are there for each other so when Liv turns up pregnant, of course Danny wants to help.  Add a small beach town and things get interesting.

Danny has a reason for not being into family and marriage.  I respect his reason but I'm hoping through the whole book that he changes his mine. It's freaking funny watching him try to resist his best friend as he lusts after her.  Their emails from separate bedrooms are totally hot.  And, yeah, there was some pretty sexy that bursts onto the scene.   I really loved that Danny cared for Liv and I don't mean his feelings.  He cared for her when she needed him so much.  Their friendship was genuine and I really loved watching them wake up to what else they were.

Liv is great.  She's a mess at first but she pulls herself together.  She's strong and resistant.  I loved that she saw through something that happened which I obviously can't tell you but it was great.  Liv understand Danny.  She respects his feelings and doesn't push him.  His friendship means everything to her.  I really respected her.

The story is fun and has some interesting ups and downs.  These two need to come to terms with more then their own feeling.  They can't lose their friendship.  They respect each other.  They don't want to hurt each other.  The way their story plays out was perfect and I enjoyed the journey with them.

A quick read, this one was just so enjoyable.  It had me looking back to see the first two in the series.  I may need to get those in line to be read as well because I enjoyed this group of friends and wouldn't mind spending more time with them.


It's a perfect read straight through kinda book that just fills you up and leaves you satisfied.
