As florist and co-owner of a successful Chicago wedding planning business, Daphne Lovell has been there for the happiest days of other people's lives. As for her own life? Well, it's hard to be perfectly happy when you're carrying a torch for your sexy, womanizing and oblivious best friend. So when the lights go out on New Year's Eve, she seizes the opportunity to kiss him senseless.

British expat Gibson Moore has a lot on his plate. The hotel he manages is being bought out, his family is crazy and someone just kissed him in the dark. When the lights go on, he searches the room, trying to find the mystery pair of lips. Only, he never thinks to ask the woman standing by his side. He's shocked when he discovers that Daphne is the woman he's been searching for. But Gib's also eager to act upon the attraction for her he's always fought to ignore.

It takes trust to move from friends to lovers, and as Gib's work situation worsens, he is no longer sure he can risk the friendship he relies on most. It's up to Daphne to convince him that some things are worth fighting for…

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading Friends to Lovers, it's definitely not your typical friends falling for each other kind of thing. At least it's not that way at first. Daphne Lovell and Gibson Moore have been friends for a while, they both have successful careers and amazing friends. As a florist and co-owner of a successful Chicago wedding planning business, she has always seen love in her job. But she hasn't been lucky in finding love for herself, or to make her crush turn into something more. But went she finally gets the chance to take a step forward, she kisses Gibson when the lights go off in one of her weddings and to her surprise, he doesn't even think it's her who has kissed him. 

British expat Gibson Moore is not the type of guy to settle down, always surrounded by beautiful women, he doesn't know what to do when he receives the best kiss of his life. When he searches the room for the woman that kissed him in the dark, he overlooks his best-friend that he standing right next to him. His relationship with Daphne has always been great, they both have a lot in common so when the two are put in a situation where they have to pretend that they're in love, he realizes that she is the one that kissed him and maybe a relationship with her is not a bad idea. 

As the two start to spend time with each other, the more they realize that they can be more than friends after all. Overall, the relationship that the characters have is realistic and enjoyable to read. I found myself liking Gibson's personality, although he does make mistakes along the way. Daphne is strong headed, but her situation is understandable. The story is well-written and it has a good amount of romance to keep one reading wanting for more. I highly recommend it, it's worth picking up.:)
