Book Summary

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.

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*

Easy, humorous, fast-paced, and light-hearted, The Best Friend Bargain is a great escape read that I thoroughly enjoyed and am so glad I got the chance to read and review. In the story, a pregnant and alone Olivia Lincoln recruits her best friend Danny to marry her, and though he has his reasons for wanting to steer clear of that particular institution, for Olivia, Danny will bite the bullet and help her out.

Olivia is a complete mess when she shows up to ask Danny to marry her, but Danny has always been the one person she could count on when she needed someone, and he’s the only one she wants to be with now that she’s about to become a mother. And Danny, sweet, funny, lovable Danny, would do anything to protect Olivia, even marry her, despite his intention to never marry at all.

A cute, put-a-smile-on-your-face, friends-to-lovers story, The Best Friend Bargain comes complete with two likable characters that I really enjoyed spending an evening getting to know. It’s a great addition to the Kisses in the Sand series, and one I definitely recommend checking out. It can be read as a standalone, but characters from the two previous books in the series do make an appearance in this one so if you later want to go back and read those earlier books, you may already know some of those characters and couples stories from reading this one. Something to keep in mind, but all the books in this series have been great, so if you’re looking for some great, light-hearted romance to read, definitely check out the Kisses in the Sand series by Robin Bielman.

Final Analysis

A fun and enjoyable book!

4 Stars

Book Excerpt
The tail end of daylight cast a glow around her in one-of-a-kind beauty and he found himself tucking her hair behind her ear as she looked up at him with similar appreciation.  
When her gaze moved to his mouth, he was a goner.
He ignored the voice inside his head reminding him she was his best friend and once they crossed this line they could never go back, and gave her two seconds to say something to change his mind.
One, two…
She took a step back. 
One kiss. One kiss to get it out of his head and put it to rest. She might have placed another foot between them, but Danny saw the indecision in her eyes. He inched closer anyway, unwilling to let her go without one more try. It was a jerk move, but if he didn’t get to taste her he’d go insane wondering.
He cradled her neck in his hands.
“Danny.” He liked how breathless his name sounded on her lips.
“We have to. I’m going out of my mind, Liv.”
She half gasped, half sighed, a pleasure-and-pain kind of sound he wanted to turn into one of satisfaction. They had to get this crazy new attraction out of the way so they could go back to being just Liv and Danny. “Make it terrible,” she whispered.
He smiled. “I’ll do my best.”
“To make it awful,” she reiterated.
“Prepare yourself for the worst kiss ever.”
