In the tradition of New Adult superstar Jessica Sorensen, Ellie Cahill’s debut novel is a charming friends-with-benefits story . . . with a twist!
What if after every bad breakup, there was someone to help “cleanse your palate”—someone who wouldn’t judge you, who was great in bed, someone you were sure not to fall in love with? “Sorbet sex” could solve everything—as long as it never got too sweet.
Joss and Matt have been friends since freshman year of college, meeting one night after Joss is dumped by her boyfriend. After a few drinks, Matt humors her with a proposition: that he’ll become her go-to guy whenever she needs to heal a broken heart. In return, she’ll do the same for him. The #1 Rule: They’ll never fall in love with each other. People scoff at the arrangement. But six years later, Joss and Matt are still the best of friends . . . with benefits.
Through a string of boyfriends and girlfriends—some almost perfect, some downright wrong—Joss and Matt are always there for each other when the going gets tough. No strings. No attachments. Piece of cake. No problem. After all, since they wrote the rules, surely they can play by them. 
Or can they?

DBML: Choosing Happy by Aria Grace

More Than Friends Series, Book #3

My rating: 3 stars

Synopsis from GR:
Zach's ex, Steve, is living in Portland with many regrets. He has alienated the people he cares most about by making bad choices that continue to haunt him. When he meets a kid that's in a bad relationship and needs some help, Steve reluctantly offers it, knowing it's his chance to redeem himself. What he doesn't expect is to find happiness. It's there, all he has to do it choose to accept it.

[DBML Event: I received a copy of the book in exchange for a honest review]

To be honest I was a little worried to read Steve's story since in the previous book I didn't like him very much...
That said, the Steve in this book is very different from the other Steve and I liked him a lot better!!
I also liked how his relationship with Joey evolved, even if it all went a little fast.

I don't have anything bad to say about Choosing Happy but it also isn't a story that will stay in my mind for a while: a 3star read

In the end, I'd like to thank the author for the chance she gave me to read her book for free and I hope she appreciates my honest opinion
