The Friendship PactThe Friendship Pact
by Tara Taylor Quinn
Adult Romance, Women's Fiction
Paperback & ebook, 245 pages
June 1st 2014 by MIRA

This is a story for every woman who has a best friend...

Bailey Watters and Koralynn Mitchell consider themselves "sisters of the soul." Their circumstances growing up couldn't have been more different; Kora came from a wealthy, privileged family, while Bailey's home life was hard. They'd do anything for each other. "I'd give you a kidney," they always say. There are no secrets between them--until there's one secret Bailey can't share.

This is a story for every woman who's been in love.

Danny Brown is the only man Kora's ever wanted, ever loved, and her marriage seems as flawless as everything else in her life. Bailey, however, doesn't want a husband. She does want a baby--but only by IVF. And the perfect donor, the perfect biological father, would be a man like...Danny.

What happens when love and friendship collide?

Kora might be willing to give Bailey a kidney. But what about a baby?

MY THOUGHTS:
With the cute cover, and the way the story begins, I was expecting an easy and lighthearted read. However, The Friendship Pact was not that, but that made it a much more enjoyable read. The story was in a way like riding a roller coaster, because it would be so sweet in one moment and so heartbreaking the next, but strangely enough I liked that. For the most part it felt extremely realistic and I just couldn't put it down.

While I disagreed with several of the actions of different characters, I understood why they did them (for the most part).

The ending was just a little too easy, so I didn't care for that, but overall it was a pretty enjoyable read.

Content: some swearing and a brief sex scene (not very graphic thankfully)

  I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.

Once Upon a Friendship
(The Historic Arapahoe #1)
by Tara Taylor Quinn
Adult Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 pages
July 1st 2015 by Harlequin Heartwarming

They?re a team...not a couple!

Falling for Liam was unthinkable. He and Gabi had been best friends since college, nothing more. And crucially, now Liam was her client and needed her to be focused on his case. Gabi could never risk their friendship ? or Liam?s freedom ? over these feelings. They could never be a couple, anyway. He was Liam Connelly, the handsome and privileged son of a billionaire. She was Gabrielle Miller, the girl who?d fought her way out of poverty and put herself through law school. They were unlikely friends to begin with. Anything more was impossible. Unless...he felt it, too.

MY THOUGHTS:

Once Upon a Friendship is the first novel I've read by this author and I thought it was a cute and entertaining story. I liked how the main characters were all such good friends, so much so that Liam and Gabi were afraid to mess up their friendship with their growing attraction towards one another that they both fought it. I enjoyed that this wasn't just a romance, but a story about a father and son and their relationship with each other. I didn't see the ending coming, the part without the romance, and that's always nice. If you enjoy these type of books I recommend you give it a read.
