“Do you love her?”
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Harley and I are Complicated... That's one way to put it! I'm an absolute sucker for Friends to Lovers story. Beautiful, ALL the feels, tears, anger, disbelief, angst, despair, lust...I felt everything Carmen Jenner threw out there. This book contained everything. I absorbed this book!
This story is told mostly from Rose, with flashbacks alternating with the current storyline. Flashbacks round this story out, bringing us closer to Harley and Rose and explain how they became Harley & Rose.
We are introduced to Rose consoling her best friend Harley on his wedding day minutes after he's been left standing at the alter. They have been best friends since forever, even their families are close. They tried romance but when that didn't work out well, they settled into this comfortable friendship. Underneath the facade of the friendship there was this touchable hot chemistry, and everyone around them could feel it. They had made their choices and mistakes.
This book brought me to tears a few more times than I care to admit, but I LOVED Harley and Rose! This was my first book by Carmen Jenner and I can't wait to read more from her! If her other books are anything like this, I can't wait! I will now social media stalk this author!

"And you thought the stepsisters were wicked.... I'm not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That's what I WANT them to think. Because then they won't suspect what I'm really up to.
Sweet and innocent Cinderella...not in this retelling!
She knew what it was like to feel unwanted.
At an early age Eliza Anderson learned a very hard lesson. Sometimes the people who are supposed to love you the most are the ones that cause you the most pain. She learned to guard herself, hesitating to let anyone close for fear of feeling that rejection all over again. Then Ethan came into her life, and what had started as a simple childhood crush morphed into a friendship she eventually came to cherish above all else. He was her safe place. Her rock. A shoulder she could lean on. Until he ripped it all away.
He knew what it was like to feel like an outsider.
Ethan Prewitt grew up learning that you couldn’t always trust the people you loved the most to be there. That sense of security he craved had always alluded him, leaving him to feel like an interloper in his own home. He dreamed of escaping the small town of Pembrooke and building a life where he didn’t have to depend on anyone but himself. What he never expected was for his friendship with Eliza to grow into something that meant everything to him.
This is the 4th book of the Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy. This can be read as a standalone, but I HIGHLY suggest reading the other three books! Only because Elle knows how to hit all the feels and they are excellent, enjoyable reads! Besides #HotHockeyPlayers! This book is specifically about Sabrina and Tucker's story; spoken from dual narrative.
"The game just got a whole lot more complicated..."
Sabrina James had goals and they do not include the quiet Texas handsome auburn haired hot Briar hockey player rocking an amazing beard! #beardgoals #bucketlist #HotTexasHockeyPlayer
