Blurb:

Aly Chase has worked for Paul Pierce for years, loving him from afar. He is handsome, rich, and the powerful CEO of Pierce Homes. Just when Aly has decided her love for him is futile and vows to move on, Paul begins to give Aly the attention she had always desired, forcing her to feel confused by his actions.

Then there's Aly’s best friend, Ethan Baker. He's sweet, handsome and charming. He is also in love with her. He's accepted that Aly and he will only be friends, until one day Aly realizes that her feelings towards Ethan are way more.
Aly is caught in between the man she’s loved for so long and the man that has always been there for her. As her feelings are pulled and tugged in both directions, she must make a choice before her distorted life loses both of them.
Who will end up winning Aly's heart?

Maya's Review

What happens when you're in love with a man who seems to have no clue about your feelings and yet another man who has been there for you over the years is head over heels in love with you and you don't get it.
At first glance this story seems to be a sequence of unrequited loves. Aly is in love with her boss, Paul and has been for a long time. Her feelings for him, though unrequited at first, blinds her to the fact that her best friend Ethan actually has a thing for her. Just when she's ready to give up, Paul starts showing an interest in her and hey presto you have a love triangle.

This story has potential and I liked the premise. I understood Aly's dilemma. Sometimes we can become so wrapped up in our infatuations it becomes difficult to tell what is real and what isn't and who is right or wrong for us. Who does she choose in the end? Well, you'll have to read it to find out.
The characters felt real and believable. However, I would've preferred a crisp storytelling. It dragged in some places and some scenes would've benefited from an editor's cut.

All in all, this is a great first book for a new author and I would certainly read more from her. If you enjoy contemporary romance with love triangles, go and pick up a copy.
