Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?
Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.
Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.
She’s always been his best friend.
He’s always been hers.
She’s in love with him.
He’s … not in love with her.
He’s … marrying someone else.
He’s … hiding something.
He’s … well—it’s complicated.
“Do you love her?”
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Harley and I are Complicated... That's one way to put it! I'm an absolute sucker for Friends to Lovers story. Beautiful, ALL the feels, tears, anger, disbelief, angst, despair, lust...I felt everything Carmen Jenner threw out there. This book contained everything. I absorbed this book!
This story is told mostly from Rose, with flashbacks alternating with the current storyline. Flashbacks round this story out, bringing us closer to Harley and Rose and explain how they became Harley & Rose.
We are introduced to Rose consoling her best friend Harley on his wedding day minutes after he's been left standing at the alter. They have been best friends since forever, even their families are close. They tried romance but when that didn't work out well, they settled into this comfortable friendship. Underneath the facade of the friendship there was this touchable hot chemistry, and everyone around them could feel it. They had made their choices and mistakes.
This book brought me to tears a few more times than I care to admit, but I LOVED Harley and Rose! This was my first book by Carmen Jenner and I can't wait to read more from her! If her other books are anything like this, I can't wait! I will now social media stalk this author!
