The Best Friend Bargain

Author:  Robin Bielman

Publication Date:  August 8, 2016

Genre:   Contemporary Romance


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.

Each book in the Kissed in the Sand series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1 Keeping Mr. Right Now
Book #2 Blame it on the Kiss
Book #3 The Best Friend Bargain

My Review:

5/5 Stars!

I have now read the entire Kisses in the Sand Series and this is by far my favorite.

Olivia has a bad habit of running away when things get tough. She ran away to London after she got fired and now she’s running home to her best friend, Danny, after she finds out she’s pregnant and the guy who is the father broke up with her. When she returns to the states, she has a plan – she will tell Danny the situation and ask him to marry her and be the father to her baby. No big deal. Right?

Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes and this may be my favorite of all the friends to lovers books I’ve read (and there are a lot of them). The writing is fantastic. The story is well-written, not overdone or over dramatic. Danny has this medical issue (you have to read the book to find out what it is) that I think is a seriously clever twist and provides a perfect reason for his hesitations. Liv is fun and real and I liked her. Oh and the end of the book (not the epilogue, that’s great too, but…) was so freaking romantic, I swear there were tears in my eyes.

Go buy this book like right now!  For real!  Do it!
