Review: Overdue by Miranda Elaine

Growing up, Griffin Thorne was the most annoying, adorable, and infuriating boy I’d ever met. I told myself I wanted nothing to do with him, but no matter how much I tried to hate him, that crazy boy somehow became my best friend.

As teenagers, we were inseparable. Despite the high school rumors, we never crossed any lines. Friends forever. That was our motto.

Griffin grew up to become a smoking hot firefighter and I got my dream job as the town librarian. Life was perfect. However, when tragedy strikes and we’re forced to move in together, our friendship is put to the biggest test yet.

Do I risk everything for the chance at an epic love? If I follow my heart, I could lose my best friend. But if it works, we could finally get our very own Happily Ever After.

“That’s all I ever wanted to do, take care and protect her like she’s the most precious thing in the world because to me she is.”

“You are my sunrise and my sunset.”

Overdue has to be hands down one of the cutest and sweetest friends to lovers romance that I’ve in a while. Griffin and Leni grew up together and at first couldn’t stand one another. But, as time grew on, the developed one of the greatest friendships. They were each other’s rock, their person, the one they spent the most time with. So, it was only natural that they would both develop deeper feelings for one another, but be afraid of pursuing it.

One of the things I loved about this story was just how genuine and true Griffin and Leni were. There was no beating around the bush, no crazy over the top drama. Just a sweet story of friends that were in love with one another, but too afraid to take the next step. From the moment you meet Leni and Griffin, it’s impossible to not get swept up in their story. Their chemistry just oozes off the pages and those will they/won’t they moments will leave you begging for more. I’m not usually a big fan of the slow burn, but when done right, I can’t get enough of it. And let me tell you, this author got the slow burn right!

Overdue is the kind of book that you will devour in a single sitting and that will leave you with a big smile on your face. This book is like sunshine on a cloudy day. It’s sweet. It’s romantic with the perfect amount of drama to balance things out. It’s got just the right amount of steam and spice and a slow burn that will leave you bursting with anticipation.

Overdue is my first book by Miranda Elaine, and it certainly won’t be my last. I can’t wait to check out more from this author in the future.
