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?
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 Review of Once Upon a Friendship
If you like sweet romance stories with endearing characters, you will love Once Upon a Friendship by Tara Taylor Quinn. It is filled with emotion and it will keep your attention throughout! Though I do wish there had been more interaction with the residents of the apartment.
The main characters, three best friends from college, put their money into an old apartment building filled with mainly senior citizen residents. They aren’t in it to make a lot of money. They just wanted to save these homes since the senior citizens wouldn’t be able to afford a rent hike if anyone else bought it. I enjoyed reading the little parts of the story that did involve the senior citizens. Maybe next book.
The romance in the book is sweet and clean and the plot moves quickly. The main story line is exciting enough to keep you on your toes! If you want a cute, heartwarming story to read, I recommend Once Upon a Friendship.
