I added my friend Sage to my rugby club’s annual list of women who are off limits thinking I could protect her from the gorillas I play with.
Never did I think I’d be the one to break the code and date her.
Even if it’s all for show. A wager between friends. An excuse to hang out with her.
Nothing more than that.
The man-bun-sporting South African rugby god next door is my fake boyfriend
Who agrees to date their best friend over a green smoothie? Apparently this girl right here.
I need to rebuild my confidence after some poor dating decisions. Who could be better to fluff my ego than Aspen’s hottest bachelor?
This situation is a win-win.
Daisy Prescott is a new to me author so I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I picked up Next to You because it is (at the time of posting this) free and Daisy was one of the authors that I wanted to read… author bucket list. Turned out this friends-to-lovers cozy, RomCom is just what I needed.
Super alpha, South African rugby player sporting an impressive man bun or known as Stan Lee gets himself into trouble. You know the kind… men doing stupid stuff like doing some offseason snowboarding that leaves them with a broken ankle. Thankfully for Stan the Man Bun, he lives next to Sage, dance instructor and general bestie to help take care of him.
Let’s just say some weird pact is made between the two to “pretend” they are a couple. As a romance reader we all know how those pacts go. Sage and Stan make a hilarious couple with their banter, highlighted further by the crazy people who are in their lives.
In general it was a sweet story with a spicy kick to it and I will certainly continue reading this series. Stay tuned…
