R E V I E W ➠ Almost Just Friends by Jill Shalvis
Piper Manning’s about as tough as they come, she’s had to be. She raised her siblings and they’ve thankfully flown the coop. All she has to do is finish fixing up the lake house her grandparents left her, sell it, and then she’s free.
When a massive storm hits, she runs into a tall, dark and brooding stranger, Camden Reid. There’s a spark there, one that shocks her. Surprising her further, her sister and brother return, each of them holding their own secrets. The smart move would be for Piper to ignore them all but Cam unleashes emotions deep inside of her that she can’t deny, making her yearn for something she doesn’t understand. And her siblings…well, they need each other.
Only when the secrets come out, it changes everything Piper thinks she knows about her family, herself…and Cam. Can she find a way to outrun the demons? The answer is closer than she thinks—just as the new life she craves may have already begun.

I love my family, but I don’t like them sometimes…
Not my first read by the author and she happens to be one of my very firsts I have read many moons ago. This is book #4 and I have read not all but the previous books in this series. And this one, I have to say REALLY TOOK THE CAKE! Wow! Just plain wow, the mind-game in this, just when you think one thing a 4th comes along followed by the 3rd. It has twists, strong and brave heroine, romance, suspense, secrets…mystery….will have you reading faster to find out what just happened, type of book.
A full family dynamic (which if you’ve read any of Jill’s book you know that most will revolve around that) in a good way that is. This time the heroine is a self-less woman, always caring for the others and putting herself last. Well she is finally starting to maybe give herself some time when she runs into a handsome stranger on top of her siblings coming back, and when it is all mixed…everything and everyone is a lot more closer than you think. All the characters are very relatable and the plot smooth…all I can say is: BEAUTIFUL STORY and a heartwarming ending.
A MUST READ!
Type: Book #3 of Series
