A seamstress. A naval officer. An impossible decision.
Harley Smith has always been unlucky in love, and this year is no different. Even if she can't get her best friend's brother out of her head. It's been almost a year, and with Valentine's Day approaching and no date in sight, perhaps it's time to stop holding out hope on her dreams. Maybe she should make her own happily ever after...
Joey Gray is a sailor through and through. He's been hurt before, and his job has become the only thing he can truly count on. But then he met his sister's best friend - the woman who has filled his dreams for months on end, regardless of how much he has tried to forget her. Now his career isn't as fulfilling as it once was, and he knows who's responsible. He needs to see her again. And what better day to tell her how he feels than on her birthday-Valentine's Day?
But is one week enough time to figure out what they have?
Valentine’s and a birthday
Be My Valentine by R.J. Groves is a quick read about falling in love with your best friend’s brother. I didn’t read the first book so, there is some back story missing, but I don’t feel like I missed anything. Harley is a seamstress at a bridal shop where she works with her friend Andie. Andie’s brother, Joey came home and sparked up a friendship with Harley. With Harley’s birthday being on Valentine’s Day, she tries to push past the fact that she is once again single for both occasions while still being infatuated with Joey. Little does she know what is waiting for her on her doorstep.
The thing that endeared this book to me was that Harley’s birthday is in February, as is mine. Her favorite flowers are gerbera daisies, as are mine. What’s not to love?! Overall, it was a quick read, so I wish I had more with them and had longer scenes to develop the characters but it was a short and sweet love story. Seeing as I got this as an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley, I feel that honestly, since it is such a short read it is a good one.
