Thank you so much for having me today and letting me take over your blog!
Can a man and woman every be just friends? Or do you think someone is bound to have feelings for the other one? And then what? Is the friendship over? And should two people who are friends even attempt something more?
This is something that Alyssa and Connor had to tackle in NOT JUST FRIENDS, the third story in the Brookfield Series. Alyssa and Connor have been friends for quite awhile and she has a secret crush on him. Alyssa never would’ve acted on it if it hadn’t been for Connor making the first move. But even then, she had a hard time believing that he wanted anymore than a friendship. You see, Connor was known as a playboy. And even the way he went about asking her out, it wasn’t a clear sign. Heck, even after the first kiss, Alyssa was certain it was a mistake. But Connor did want more and he’d find a way to prove it, even if he had to just flat out tell her.
In my story, I hope I stayed true to how two friends would feel as they crossed that line of no return. And in my own thinking, I believe once you cross it, there is no returning. A man and woman can be friends, but I often wonder if it can always stay platonic on both ends, especially if they are single. And if you were the friend with the crush, do you think you could speak up?
After all, if you cross the line, can you ever go back?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Can the quiet bookstore owner land the playboy?
Alyssa Duncan’s life revolves around books. If not for the fact the town’s playboy Connor Phillips has a secret reading addiction, she most likely wouldn’t be on his radar…or his friend. The two personalities just don’t mesh…or do they? She gets a chance to find out when a book-reading bet leads to dinner. Alyssa experiences a wide a range of emotions. She’s elated her beyond-friendship feelings seem returned, but his reputation precedes him. Is she just another gullible female in a string of women? As a relationship begins to develop with Connor, going past the limits of friendship, things grow muddled and complicated when an ex-boyfriend shows up in town and things aren’t what they seem.
When the dust finally settles, will Alyssa find true love with someone or end up with just another friend?
