His North Star by Amanda P. Jones: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

I fell in love with my best friend, but he only ever loved me like a sister. So I moved on—with idiots.

In an attempt to ignore the fact that my best friend, Ty, would never love me the way I wanted him to, I dated a lot. I even got engaged to Ty’s cousin. Except my ex-fiancé wasn’t the man I thought he was. When he broke off our engagement and fled to LA, I was left devastated and emotionally wounded.

Leaning on Ty—the only man who has ever stayed by my side—I drowned myself in work and helping Ty renovate his new house. When Ty confesses he’s in love with me, I’m torn. He’s all I’ve ever wanted, but I’m scared, shattered, and nowhere near good enough for him—something my ex made sure I knew. How can I risk a relationship with the one person I can’t live without?

His North Star is a sweet contemporary romance with a sprinkling of heat.

When not reading or writing (which is rare), Amanda loves to travel, camp, spend time with family and friends, and eat chocolate chip cookies—or any other excuse she can come up with to avoid doing housework. She lives in the Rocky Mountains with her husband and three children.

I'm not sure how it happened, but over the last week or two, I have found myself reading several books using the best friend-to-love trope. This is always a trope that I enjoy because there is always such a good history to build upon. And of all that I've read recently (which have all been amazing as well), I feel like THIS one really showed that more than any others. The relationship between Ty and Maren was just absolutely wonderful... and it was not just the romantic chemistry and the pining (so, so good), but the friendship as well. It felt absolutely genuine and I couldn't get enough of them. And when they finally get together? Perfection. 

At the beginning of this story, Ty had a girlfriend and Maren dates someone as well a little bit into the story. I don't typically enjoy a love triangle (or square, maybe?), so I was a little hesitant about that at first. I do feel like this one was done well so in the end I found it didn't really bother me as much as others have in the past. 

Overall, I really loved these characters and their story... I didn't want to put it down! If you're looking for a good friends to lovers sweet romance, this is one to check out!
