Series: Paths to Love #2
I’ve never been on a date.
And I intended to keep it that way.
But to save my best friends’ relationship, I agreed to three with the man I secretly long for.
He doesn’t know why we can’t be. That chancing a relationship would bring everything crashing down around us.
Whatever he makes me feel is irrelevant. Wherever he thinks this may lead, he’s wrong.
That’s all I have to survive before I can put him back where he belongs…
At arm’s length.
That’s how long I’ve waited for her.
Now I’ve got three shots to convince her what I’ve known all along…
We belong together.
Despite all of my determination, each new revelation seems to pull us apart.
With everything stacked against us, we may not even make it to date three, let alone forever.
When I heard that Stone & Muriella were getting their own story, I gotta tell you, I was over the moon. I fell in love with these two in It’s Not Over and man, was I dying for more!!
Stone & Muriella’s story took me on one heck of a ride with so many emotions and feels. From the moment you start reading their story, you can’t help but be hooked on the two of them. Muriella has never been on a date and if she had it her way, she never would. However, as a favor to her bff, she agrees to three dates with the man that’s been starring in her dreams. She’s always wanted more from Stone and can’t deny the chemistry between the two of them, but secrets from her past will try to keep Stone at bay. She desperately tries to keep Stone at arms lengths, but Stone is a determined man and isn’t afraid to go after what he wants. And what he wants is Muriella…..
I love, love, loved Stone and Muriella’s story. It was a beautiful friends to lovers romance with a great slow burn. Now, if you know me, then you know I’m not normally a fan of the slow burn. But, man, with these two. I couldn’t have asked for a better way for their romance to go. Stone and Muriella have fought their connection for so long. Each having their own demons to overcome. And I loved that they had to make these three dates happen. It took them both out of their comfort zone and made them face those demons of the past.
Stone is the guy that you just can’t help but fall in love with. He was sexy and sweet. Totally devoted to those who were important in his life. He was respectful of Muriella’s fears and didn’t let her past define her. He was so supportive of her and was just the light that she needed in her life. If anyone was going to show Muriella that there was good in this world, I am so glad that person was Stone. He was so loving and wasn’t afraid to fight for the woman he wanted. And that was just the guy that Muriella needed. She needed someone who was patient and understanding. Someone that was going to fight her demons and not leave when things got tough. Someone that wouldn’t rush her and would just love her no matter what. And thanks to Stone, Muriella didn’t give up. He showed her that life was worth living and that there really are good people in this world. And Muriella…she had so much to give. I loved her bravery and how she stepped out of her comfort zone with Stone. These two kept me glued to the pages and I just couldn’t wait to see how their story was going to end.
Three Dates was a terrific read from beginning to end. It is a slow burning friends to lovers romance. It’s got just the right amount of romance, drama and suspense. This book made me fall in love. It brought tears to my eyes and in the end, it left me with a big smile on my face. I really enjoyed getting lost in Stone & Muriella’s story and can not wait to see what this author has in store for us next.
