Evelyn is a woman who has everything–a successful career as a TV producer, and her best friend—sexy firefighter Owen Hanson—who looks mighty fine as her plus-one to awards dinners and backyard picnics. But something is missing and it’s not just the sex.

Owen Hanson is living the dream—a Chicago firefighter who volunteers at a youth center on the Southside and he’s got his best friend Evelyn—who knows him better than anyone. When Evelyn starts hinting about wanting something more, Owen panics.

Sex changes everything but taking their relationship to the next level surpasses even their wildest dreams. Until Evelyn’s ex-husband shows up and could make even the most perfect couple crash and burn…

Review:

Finally–Owen and Evelyn’s story!

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for them to figure their way out to an HEA (okay, so it was just two books, but it *felt* like ages!) Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes, and Ms Schroeder does a fantastic job with it here. If you’ve read the other series books, you know that Owen and Evelyn have been perfectly comfortable hanging out together, being each others’ BFFs and eternal plus-ones, neither really feeling the pressure to do more. Then Nina issues her challenge (in One Night With the Millionaire ) and their friends in the group start to find own ways to HEAs. It seems like everyone–from series characters to the readers–knows that the two of them should be together. When would they finally get their acts together and try?

The answer, of course, is in this book. And no, it wasn’t easy–at times it felt like it might be, but of course their pasts and issues and hangups are going to get in the way and make them work for it instead. As angry as I wanted to get with Owen (and yeah, he kinda deserves it) I still understood where he was coming from and realized that Evelyn had some things to smooth out too–that HEA wasn’t going to happen on its own, and they both had work to do to get there.

And then they do. And it’s wonderful 🙂

Now, let’s see what Ms Schroeder can do with the rest of the group… 😉

My Forever Plus-One is the third book in the series. It can be read as a standalone, but you’re going to want to get to know all of the “daring divorcees” better, so why not read them all? 🙂

Rating: 4 stars / A-

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

About the author:

Shannyn is an occasional English teacher, who also works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids.

Even though she wrote from high school through college (mostly poetry), she’d never considered a career as an author. Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. One group in particular dubbed her “The Torture Master,” a title she carried into motherhood.

After the birth of baby number two, Shannyn resigned from teaching and fell in love with reading romance novels. She read so many books so quickly that her husband teased, “If you’re going to read so many damn books, why don’t you just write one?”

So she did.

That first book is safely buried on her hard drive, but the process set Shannyn on the path to where she is today. The 6-book O’Leary series has wrapped up, as well as 2 Hot & Nerdy new adult trilogies. She’s currently working on her next series.

She is recovering from her Diet Coke addiction, fears putting her foot in her mouth on social media, and has a renewed appreciation for the bad girls of the world.
