Sometimes the love that’s closest to you is the hardest to see.
Quinn Shaughnessy’s two older brothers have found their true loves … but Quinn’s not about to join that parade. Nope, as he tells his best friend Anna, there’s a lot more to life than getting tied down to one person. He’s positive tomboy Anna will be on his side – except she’s inexplicably developing other interests – even dating! Suddenly Quinn is seeing Anna in a very different light.
Quinn has been Anna’s buddy since they were both five years old. She can tell him anything – except the one big secret she’s been hiding for years – that she’s fallen in love with him. Now Anna is determined to make a life for herself that doesn’t include pining for Quinn. Falling in love with your best friend? Easy. Telling them how you really feel? Impossible.
Told from multiple points of view, Always My Girl follows the story of Quinn and Anna. Quinn and Anna have been best friends for as long as they can remember. Somewhere along the lines, Anna’s feelings towards Quinn changed. She no longer wanted to be just friends; she wanted more. Only Anna never acted on those feelings. Quinn never saw Anna for anything more than being one of the guys. That is until one day. One day, Quinn’s eyes are finally opened and he’s finally beginning to see Anna in a different light. Now, that Quinn’s eyes are finally opened, will it be too late? Will Anna get the happily ever after that she’s always dreamed of?
Overall, I thought Always My Girl was a fun read. It was quick and easy; definitely one you can read in one sitting. I loved the friends to lovers story-line. I think it worked really well here. The characters were fun and entertaining. I loved the push and pull between Quinn and Anna. It was a lot of fun watching these two dance around their feelings. It made those will they/won’t they moments that much better. It was a joy to watch Quinn pull his head out of his ass and fall for Anna.
Always My Girl is a great read for the summer. It is the third book in this series, but you can totally read it as a stand-alone. It’s got the perfect mix of angst, drama and romance. And in the end, you will find yourself rooting for Anna and Quinn to find their HEA. Always My Girl is my first read by this author, and I gotta say, I can’t to go back and read more!
