So many emotions! A romantic friends to lovers story with a fabulous couple. Lexi and Alec are childhood friends that turns into so much more with adulthood. Alec is a firefighter/paramedic that’s been in love with Lexi for years. Lexi’s life revolves around surfing, art and Alec, and not necessarily in that order. Tragedy strikes Alec’s family and he decides that life is too short and he wants to make his move…his move on Lexi and the love he has for her. But she’s not there yet and needs some convincing. This is an emotional story with tons of angst and hard times for these two as they hold on to each other in the bad times as well as the good. A few surprises along the way with a big one toward the end. A little too angsty for me but still a swoon worthy romance with terrific characters and a whole group of fantastic supporters.
