Ethan and Cara have been best friends forever. They've seen each other through thick and thin. And while the Atlantic Ocean separates them most of the time, they are still there for each. So when Ethan spies Cara's boyfriend being overly friendly with a woman in a local bar in Ireland, he takes it upon himself to punch said boyfriend and make sure the boyfriend knew he was going to be an ex very soon. Ethan is then on a mission to find Cara to make sure she knew that the man who proposed to her was out cheating on her. When he finds her, she's stuck in a Winnie-the-Pooh costume in nothing but her underwear. As he helps her out, a photog snaps a couple of shots of them in a compromising position. It's one of those photos that changes everything for Ethan and Cara.
The change from best friends to lovers played out exactly like I'd imagine the scenario playing out. They both have these feelings they aren't sure the other one is feeling as well. They both decide to throw caution to the wind and move the relationship forward. And finally they both realize they feel much more than friendship for the other but can't read how the other is feeling and are scared to find out what they feel isn't reciprocated. And while there wasn't any surprise to how the story evolved, the characters were very down to earth and likeable that you hoped the path to get to their HEA was an easy one.
Sally Clements was able to capture all the crazy emotions that one goes through when that unexpected moment hits you where you look at your "friend" and somehow you feel that you have a ton of butterflies flying crazily in your tummy (yet you question if it was just your last meal dancing a jig of some sort lol) and just don't know what to do.
I am no Cara Byrne (a teacher) nor is my husband an Ethan Quinn (a Hollywood star)but I was really able to relate to their story. The author captured the rollercoaster of emotions that one goes through so perfectly and vividly.
The entire story had every important ingredient to make the perfect chik lit....good friends, heartbroken girl, and the most important ingredient ....a hero.
Now, of course I can not tell you if Cara and Quinn get their happy ending as I did with my husband lol....so take it from me, you really have to read this book. Not just to find out how it ends, but to read something that was really well written and will leave you with a smile on your face and wishing that the book had never ended :-)
Definitely a 4.5 stars out of 5!!!!
I really look forward to reading more of Sally Clements works!

You'll get two for the price of one here - a lovely romance and a trip to Ireland. As an expat Irish woman who misses the `ould sod', I found this book quite a treat. I enjoyed reading about people with surnames like Quinn and Byrne - I grew up among people with surnames like that! But even if you're not Irish, there's no need to feel left out. Love, as we know, is a universal emotion. The love scenes are written in romantic language. The heroine is an assertive character who will not be pushed around - fantastic! The hero? I could almost see him. In fact I probably know him. An Irish lad all right. I enjoyed the humour too. This romance has a lot of humour. Another Irish trait.
It's hard to get a respectable reputation back when you've had a brush with notoriety in your teens. Irish people have long memories and over there, ten years is not a long time. But Cara Byrne did it. She crawled back from a near scandal and got a job as a teacher in a secondary school run by the Church. When a series of slightly tragic-comic events land her name up again in scandalous lights, such as being photographed in the tabloids in the arms of a Hollywood bad boy (in her underwear!) it's time to leave town for a while. But out in Hollywood, her relationship with her old pal Ethan Quinn takes a different turn. Ethan is a tough guy with a reputation to match, a hero in the Sly Stallone mold. Is this love? Or friendship carried away? Can they make it as a couple? I'm not telling, you're going to have to read the book to find out. And enjoy every word.
Favorite Quote: `He'd always been her friend. Strong, reliable and caring, rather than sexy, dangerous and available.'
`He was too valuable a friend to fall in love with.'

Suitable for young adults, with the accent on adult. Ms. Clements is more restrained in her sexual descriptions than in another of her books. This creates a more enjoyable read.Published 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
