The Book

A long-awaited homecoming, a runaway bride, and a second chance.

When I decided to join the Army, I never in a million years believed it would cost me the girl I loved.

Penelope Miller was my best friend and the love of my life. It was love at first ponytail tug.

Yet joining the Army changed everything.

A decade later, I’m home, and Penny is starting the life we dreamed of…with another man.

At least she was until I found her hanging from a cliff on her wedding day.

Still in love with me, she left her fiancé at the altar.

I’m no longer the man who left Willow Falls and joined the military. I’m not the man she remembers.

I’m broken.
Unworthy of Penny and the love she has to offer.
I would never let her settle for less than she deserves.

But how do I walk away from the one person my heart beats for? The one and only woman I’ve ever loved?

This is the second book in the Bake My Day With Love Series. This is a clean, second chance, best friend, small town, military, sweet and swoony stand alone romance. Let yourself get swept up with Liam and Penny as they get a second chance at the love they believed was lost. Just like with all my other books, I hope you fall in love with the two of them and are left wanting more!

Book Review

I'd Never Date My Best Friend...Again is the second book in the Bake My Day with Love series. While you'll see a few familiar characters make an appearance if you've read the first book, this could definitely be enjoyed just fine as a standalone as well. 

Right from the start, I was drawn into this story... I mean, what grabs the attention better than a runaway bride!? I think this very easily could have made Penny an unlikable character (considering her groom-to-be was actually a decent guy!), but the author managed to tell the story in a way that didn't make me feel that way about her. (Though if we could see Andrew get a happily ever after at some point, that would be great too! He certainly deserves it!) The chemistry between Penny and Liam is great and I enjoyed seeing them get their second chance. As a military wife, I really appreciated Liam's readjustment back to civilian life and struggles with that... I think that's something that absolutely needs to be talked about more, even in fictional stories like this one. While this was an important aspect of the story and didn't feel glossed over, I did find the story kept an overall lighthearted feel nonetheless. I've read a few books by Abby Greyson now and enjoyed them all, but I think this is my favorite yet!

I'd Never Date My Best Friend...Again is a closed-door romance with kisses only and no language.
