This sexy rancher is her best friend…but can he be more? Only from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates!
She’s just one of the boys, but with a new business in Copper Ridge, Anna Brown needs to change that. Her brothers bet she can’t land a date for a fancy charity event. So Anna turns to her best friend—the hottest bachelor in town—for advice.
Rancher Chase McCormack wants in on that gala. If Anna takes him, he promises to turn her into a lady. But the makeover reveals what he’s long suspected—Anna’s irresistible! Is his best friend prepared to be taken—heart, body and soul—by her very own cowboy?
I’m a real sucker for the whole friends-to-lovers trope, so this book was an automatic read for me. While I did enjoy this one and really liked Anna, I wasn’t very fond of Chase. I found his views or ideas on relationships and women in general off-putting. Not offensive per se but cringey. Like I want to slap some sense into him sometimes. The book suggests that he learned a valuable lesson about it but I personally am not sure.
Anna saved the book for me. She realized that even if she changes her appearance, she can’t change who she is inside and that’s totally fine. I liked how she puts Chase in his place.
Overall, still a good read but could have been better.
