Trope: Friends to lovers, second chance at love



Walking away from my marriage was my idea of a fresh start.

My kid is in college, my ex-wife and I are on good terms … but being single in my forties is a world different to being single in my teens.

But my best friend, Heath, has my back like he always does and is ready to take me out and show me how the bachelor life is done.

He was never supposed to show me literally.

After we wake up in bed together, I can’t stop looking at him differently, and one thing becomes abundantly clear.

I talk a big talk about us only being friends, but my platonic rulebook has gone out the window.


When my best friend comes to me for help post-divorce, I’m only too happy to impart wisdom on him.

After all, Griffin isn’t my type, but even I can tell he’s a complete lumbersnack. Good with his hands, kind eyes, and a killer smile. All the guys and gals are gonna eat him alive.

But the more time we spend together, the less “not my type” he becomes. I’m the one who can’t get enough of him.

Neither of us are interested in a relationship, so what’s a little fun between friends?

4.25 Stars!

This is the second book in the Divorced Men’s Club series and while I think it’s more enjoyable to read them in order, it can also be read as a standalone.

I really liked Heath and Griff, but it took me a bit to get there. At first, they came across as very immature, and the attraction part was a bit rushed, seeing as they had been platonic friends and nothing more for 25 years. Once they decided to give their relationship a try, it was really good between them and it was obvious they belonged together. They were super hot together and seemed to complement each other in other areas as well.

I liked Felix, Griff’s son, and I hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of him. I liked Poppy, Griff’s ex-wife, too. And I loved the DMC’s chats, they were so much fun!

Overall, a fun, steamy read, that I have no trouble recommending!
