R E V I E W ➠ That Secret Crush by Meghan Quinn



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

What happens when your secret crush isn’t so secret anymore?
I’ve had feelings for Eve Roberts for as long as I can remember, but because she also happens to be the twin sister of my best friend, Eric, I’ve never acted on my feelings and long ago resigned myself to keeping my crush under wraps.
But after a terrible falling-out with Eric involving a failed restaurant venture and plenty of blame on both sides, I’m back in Port Snow without my best friend and without any direction. But can you guess who’s here? Eve. And my attraction to her is as strong as ever.
As old feelings rush back, Eve and I find ourselves pulled together, whether we like it or not. Lines are crossed, secrets are kept, and we soon discover that the difference between love and friendship may not be so black and white, after all.
Everyone wants that secret crush to love them back…but will I be ready when she does?

Hopelessly optimistic would be the last way I’d describe you. More like sarcastically pessimistic.”

Not my first read by the author and i have read the previous books in this series. loved every single one. that said, unfortunately this was not my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong the story and words were fantastic because this authors knows how to write but the events, let me explain. I wont go into too much detail because i don’t want anyone to think I’m bashing anything, just simply not my taste in hero and heroine.

The hero is actually the oldest of the brothers. he is a man that had it all and lost everything including himself in one night. forwards years later he is now so low on himself that he doesn’t think he deserves anything. the heroine is actually the hero’s best friends little sister, therefore they have know each other since they were 10. she is someone who knows sacrifice and hard work, and always kept going even when times felt hard.  when lines get crossed as this is a brothers best friend and friends to lovers romance, thing heat up…you know what they say. if you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. now the reason i was not fond of the characters is because, although they are older in age their actions just didn’t vibe with me. the hero deflects his past and pain with humor and therefore this is a rom-com all on its own and its funny but its just a lot in some sections of the book. the heroine is touch and go 50/50 one minute i am on my toes but then she does something like forgive easy and lets him off the hook. one particular part that turned me off, was the indecisiveness, it was over baring for me. on both ends. i cant say much without giving out the book but that played a huge part to me.  all that said, these are my opinions and feelings. when i read i really read with the whole me and what kind of reader would i be if i didn’t voice the truth on those feelings while reading. i hope no one takes it the wrong way because i truly truly love this series, just this was a miss for me.
