Just This Once Book Review
Friends to lovers romance of the very best kind. And, can we take a moment to appreciate the cover? It’s rare that a cover captures the likeness of the characters so well. I can see the personalities of Sean and Molly. I read this book back in 2018 and it’s stayed with me, and when someone reads as many romance books as I do, that’s saying something.
Molly’s older brother is Sean’s best friend. They’ve known each other for ages. Sean comes from an affluent family with high aspirations. He dates women based on academic pedigree, hence the reason Molly’s never made it on his radar. She’s crushed on him, but she’s the little kid sister who doesn’t AT ALL meet the criteria he’s formed for his ideal mate. And they’re best buds, so she knows all about his criteria.
The chemistry between these two is off the charts. When they end up living together, they can’t help but give in ‘just this once’. Yeah, it’s a light hearted romance, but I just love these two.
This book is #3 in the Wedding Date Series. I’ve read all of the books in this series and do recommend them. But for me, Just This Once is the “empire of the series”. I’ve read most of Mira Lyn Kelly‘s books and eagerly await her next release, The Dirty Secret, due out “mid-2019”. That one is a part of the Back to You series, which I super enjoyed as well.
