Review ~ THE BEST FRIEND BARGAIN by Robin Bielman

The Best Friend Bargain (Kisses in the Sand, #3)
by: Robin Bielman
Series: Kisses in the Sand
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 8, 2016
Publisher: Entangled ~ Lovestruck

Their friendship is about to take a turn down the aisle.

Olivia Lincoln has a plan guaranteed to get her life back on track. A plan that involves her best friend, Danny. And he’s on board, too…until she blurts out that they’re engaged and expecting a baby, and the news spreads like wildfire.

The problem? Danny doesn’t do marriage. Or family. And everyone knows it, including Olivia.

As irritated as he might be, protecting Olivia is what Danny does. But put best friends under one roof, add house rules begging to be broken, accidental nakedness, and pancakes in bed, and what started as a marriage between friends threatens to turn into the real deal…which would ruin everything.

As I set down to write this review, I know there are no words to fully convey how good The Best Friend Bargain is.  Robin Bielman is one of my favorite authors because she has this ability to write characters who worm their way into your heart.  Olivia and Danny are no different.  Every girl should be so lucky to have a best friend like Danny Ellis.  He’s sweet, kind, funny, compassionate, and sexy.  If it’s good, it’s him.

Olivia and Danny have been best friends for fifteen years.  They have celebrated ups and downs with each other. They know that when there is no one else, they have each other’s backs.   “I’ve got you. You know that, right? I’ve always got you.”  So, when Olivia finds herself pregnant and unmarried, she turns to Danny.  Danny has his reasons for never wanting to get married or have kids, but there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for Olivia.

The Best Friend Bargain shows what can happen when you meet the one and you don’t even know it.  Olivia and Danny are like two sides to a coin.  They go together like peanut butter and jelly.  They know each other like no one else and are truly each other’s best friend.  

I don’t know how Robin Bielman does it, but she has once again written characters you can’t help but wish were real, so you could know them.  I loved the playfulness between Danny and Olivia, from goofy knock, knock jokes to middle of the night emails, to watching their romance blossom and grow.  Robin is the queen of the romantic grand gesture and she manages to make you need a tissue just when you think you’re safe.

I don’t know if this is the end of the Kisses in the Sands series, but I hope it isn’t.  All the characters in this series are simply amazing.  The Best Friend Bargain is a standalone read with the previous couples making appearances.
