From USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Yarros comes a brand-new small town, older-brother's best friend standalone romance.
"I'll take them!"
That's what I tell the social worker when my pre-k student and his baby brother need an emergency foster placement. I'll do anything to keep the brothers from being split up. But my apartment's flooded and there's only one house I can take them to on such short notice…his.
Knox Daniels, my older brother's best friend, offers his new place without hesitation. He's not moving back to our tiny town until next month—that's when all our hotshot firefighters are returning for their one and only chance to rebuild our fathers' fallen, iconic crew.
It doesn't matter that I've been silently in love with Knox since we were kids.
It can't matter that we pretend that reckless prom night kiss never happened.
It won't matter that my feelings for him could destroy his lifelong friendship with my brother and threaten the certification of their hotshot crew.
Because I'll be out of his house long before he gets back.
Except Knox just walked in…a month early.
And the icing on this awkward cake?
He's gorgeous as always and I'm covered in baby puke.
He takes one look at the boys and tells me we can make this work—
We can temporarily fake a relationship to keep them from being separated by the system.
Suddenly, everything matters.
Rebecca Yarros is a relatively new author to me but what I have read I have really enjoyed. This is the first book in her latest series and if Reason to Believe is anything to go by, she has a winning series on her hands.
I was drawn in from the first chapter and fully invested in Knox and Harper’s story. This was such an emotional, heart warming story that got to me on a number of levels.
Harper has been in love with Knox for years but he won’t cross the line because of his friendship with her older brother. However some things are meant to be and neither of them have forgotten the kiss they shared on prom night.
When Harper steps up to care for one of her students and his baby brother she knows she will do whatever it takes to keep them out of the system. When Knox returns earlier than planned they set in motion a plan that will quickly explode and become complicated.
Reason to Believe is a beautifully written friends to lovers story that ticked every box for me. The chemistry between Knox and Harper and the roller coaster of emotions this story brought out made for a wonderful read.
One click this little gem I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Ticked all my boxes

I finished Knox and Harper’s story a few days ago but it’s taken me this long to put words to paper because believe me this is one special read so i hope i can i do this romance justice.

Life and fate works in mysterious ways and when Harper needs help to keep one of her students and his baby brother from going into the system it’s Knox who comes to the rescue, what follows is a beautifully written friends to lovers journey that will appeal to a wide range of audiences.
I loved everything about this book, I smiled, I swooned and at times I held my breath as I was drawn into this very special journey. I was captivated from the first few pages and Knox and Harper’s stiry stayed with me long after the final word was read so I guess what I really want to say is please one click this gem of a read, you won’t be disappointed. I’m so excited for the rest of this series.
