The friends to lovers trope is always a tough one for me to enjoy I may be a tad too critical when it comes to this trope but I either love it or just can t stand it Only Ever You can only be described as beautiful I really enjoyed this so much I loved the characters I am head over heels in love with Sebastian Normally I love alpha males but there is something about him that just draws me.
To be honest, I ve read only two other books by CD Reiss so compared to those, Only Ever You was honestly pretty tame but I didn t mind I actually enjoyed it.
Some may think this is a modern love story but for Rachel and Sebastian it s not Rachel and Sebastion grew up best friends and typical best friends they stuck up for eachother Except it was Rachel that always stuck up for Sebastion because he was small and nerdy Rachel and Sebastian left for college and they returned home 14 years later they saw eachother There family loves them and is pushing them to be together but can they be together and be happy or will they do it just to make thier families happy I loved how Rachel was the hero in the beginning of the book but you fast forward 14 years and the roles reversed and Sebastion grows out of his nerd state and into a strong handsome man Can these two find love or are they doomed to be friends forever I love CD Reiss s writing it s not only
I felt this was not only a love story between Sebastian and Ra
