About The Royal’s Best Friend
Two best friends. One lie.
When a hurricane destroys Peyton’s sleepy South Carolina beach town, the last person she expects at her door is her son-of-an-earl best friend, Will Maxwell. He insists on helping her save the family home. She accepts, eager for some time with her friend from London.
But when his toxic ex-girlfriend crashes the scene to win Will back, he tells Peyton there’s only one solution—fake a relationship with each other to convince his ex he’s taken for good.
Will is relieved when Peyton agrees, however reluctantly. But a new problem emerges when their fake romance leads to real feelings and a few shockingly hot kisses. He’ll have to leave his privileged life in London behind in order to have her, an idea Peyton dismisses outright. Can Will convince her that he’s ready to make the sacrifice ? And can Peyton allow herself to accept it?
When the three youngest sons of British earls seek a way to make their own names in the world, a sleepy Southern beach town may hold the keys to love, laughter, and happily ever after…
I’m always up for a contemporary romance by Brenna Jacobs. I love the way she writes her books. It’s almost as good as taking a trip to Charleston. Sigh.
This one features Will and Peyton. I LOVED the chemistry between these two. They are best friends, but nothing more. But you’d never know that by how quickly Will jumps on a plane to help Peyton after hurricane Bianca.
And speaking of Bianca, I loved the parts of this book showing Will’s friends, the gents and his ex-girlfriend Bianca. The showdown between her and Peyton might be my very favorite scene in this book.
Peyton and Will are kind of clueless about each other through most of the book. That makes the plot so much more fun. I laughed out loud at how the two of them interacted sometimes. And the ending was perfect!
I can’t wait to read more books about the Gentleman of Magnolia Bay!
I borrowed a copy of The Royal’s Best Friend with my Kindle Unlimited subscription. All opinions are my own.
