Big shout out thank you to Sorcha for having me today! Today is the last stop on The Roughnecks Blog tour for Rough Ride. *sobs*…or not. Just kidding. I’ve had so much fun talking to you and learning more about you.

Today let’s get on one of my favorite subjects, the friends-to-lovers. Or maybe in the case of Rough Ride, acquaintances to lovers. I really enjoyed that dynamic between Gretchen and Lane writing them. They weren’t best buds. He’s not her best friend’s older brother or anything like that. They barely have a history together.

You see Gretchen owns a trailer park. For several months now Lane has been one of her tenants. They don’t go out and grab a beer together, but they know just enough about the other to know they want to know more. Is that a mouthful or what?

So there was some familiarity there between them, but then so much newness to discover. It reminded me so much about my romance with my husband. He’s best friends with my cousins on the other side of the county so I was always aware of his existence and him of me. If we saw each other in Wal-Mart we’d wave and keep shopping. If my car had broken down in the parking lot, I would have gotten in his truck for ride somewhere. Just acquaintances.

Do you have any friends-to-lovers stories to tell? On you or a friend? What about your favorite book with this set up? Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered for one of the best friends-to-lovers novellas I’ve read this year, Daniel’s Dare by Sasha Devlin. Find more on Sasha at her Website, Facebook and Twitter spots!

You do for family, no matter what. Lane Iverson knows that better than anyone. Harboring a secret about his mother’s death, Lane is counting the days until he finishes helping his brothers with some work and can head back to his hiding hole hours away. As long as he doesn’t have to face his three brothers every day, the guilt is easier to carry.

There is only one thing that can risk his plan. All of five foot tall with these deep eyes and a voice that shudders through him. The completely addicting, Gretchen Jones. She’s been watching him the entire time he’s been in town. With courage from her friends behind her, she confronts what she wants. To her surprise, that’s the easy part. Keeping her heart protected when she knows he’ll be leaving? Not so easy, but her only choice.

    I’ve been wanting to read Daniel’s Dare by Sasha Devlin for the longest time, so I am glad to see that it’s one of your fav’s. While I don’t have a friend’s to lover’s story to share of my own, I can say that one of my fav’s stories of this type is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire.
