Review: The Best Friend Bargain by Robin Bielman

The Best Friend Bargain
Release Date: August 8, 2016
Series: Kisses in the Sand #3

Olivia Lincoln has a plan guaranteed to get her life back on track. A plan that involves her best friend, Danny. And he’s on board, too…until she blurts out that they’re engaged and expecting a baby, and the news spreads like wildfire.

The problem? Danny doesn’t do marriage. Or family. And everyone knows it, including Olivia.

As irritated as he might be, protecting Olivia is what Danny does. But put best friends under one roof, add house rules begging to be broken, accidental nakedness, and pancakes in bed, and what started as a marriage between friends threatens to turn into the real deal…which would ruin everything.

What a predicament to be in, finding out you are pregnant and not wanting to disappoint your family so you go to your very best friend in the whole world and proposition a proposal from him, the one person who doesn’t believe in that type of commitment.  What a very interesting premise for this book and stranger things have happened.  I think the author did a wonderful job telling the great story of Danny and Olivia. 

First let me start by saying how much I love all the characters names, I haven’t read any of the other books in this series but am seriously intrigued on how the other couples got together, should be even more interesting reads.  I love the fact that these two characters have basically known each other for the majority of their lives and it wasn’t something that just happened instantly.  This is something that has grown from the very beginning of time but they were all too stubborn to realize what happened.  Going through the motions of everyone in their daily lives and their daily struggles with one another and their ever growing relationships.

Danny is so stubborn and hard headed about his life and what he plans to do with it considering his condition but of course Liv is all about him and even with his condition she planned on being in his life.  So really it’s up to him to realize what it is he has right in front of him which everyone has seen for such a long time. Liv is no easier though because she’s always had abandonment issues so she feels like she always has to have someone so when she attaches herself to Danny she eventually takes a break and learns that she can do it on her own.

Overall the story was wonderful and a great quick read.  There were some very steamy moments too and makes me look at honey in a whole new way.  I enjoyed the setting, all the characters, and the writing style, on the whole this book is something you should pick up and check out.  I’m definitely going to check out the first two books.  Such a happy story that just makes you feel good. I really love the cover too, very eye catching and makes you want to read what it’s about.  Looks very relatable.

I received this book from NetGalley and Entangled Publishing (Lovestruck), so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
