Author: Gabrielle G
Genre: Contemporary Romance
There are three things I have to protect: My heart, my scars and my life. Even from my best friend.
Some secrets have the power to change lives.
Or ruin them.
What I didn’t expect was for my best friend to walk away when I needed him most.
I made the only decision I could.
And I have no regrets–even if Lars Trouble can’t handle that.
Now I just have to convince my broken heart it’s better off without him.
I don’t do secrets, I hate deceivers and I’m not in love with my best friend.
Or so I thought.
As the man in the shadows, the drummer of the Darling Devils, the person I rely on most is my best friend.
That is until I discover Naomi is a liar.
If walking away from her was hard, learning she isn’t mine to love feels impossible.
And just when I think it’s all finally coming back together, fate steps in and proves me wrong.
But when you love someone, you do the only thing you can. You fight for your love story to begin.
A friends-to-lovers romance to the beat of the Darling Devils – the legends of music.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading the series in order.
Naomi and Lars have history. Serious chemistry of heat and sexy history. Only the choice for her was about friendship. Since she could have gotten serious about a man who uses her looks as a type. She instead, chose to be his friend, the best of friends.
Lars is all in with his best friend. Until the worst happens. Then they split apart, and that is it. Being in the limelight, having someone to care about who he really is was a real treat. Now, she looks at him with such shame and disgust. Can this be fixed?
I love the friends to lovers trope, I have been pretty vocal about that. I just really did not feel the connection with this story and its MC's. I tried at separate times. I found the story solid, the pace nice and fast, and the chemistry just was not working for me. All around it is still worth the read. Lots of our favorites make an appearance, and I am still eager to read the next installment in the series. The book is still a good read.
