Re: Mad About You

I can't recall ever reading a book that was considered a friends-to-lovers book. Yours would be the first, and I would really love to read your book. As far as my life goes, I've had the chance, over the years, to take someone that was a friend to the next level. In my eyes, there had to be more than just a friendly attraction there for me to act on it. I had to really have that "animal magnetism," for lack of a better term, in play, along with the friendship, in order to take it to the next level. Just having a person for a friend, doesn't mean that I wanted to take things to the next level. In fact, one of my friends wanted to take things to a romantic level, and I just couldn't do it. I loved him as a friend, but after everything that we went through, I just couldn't see myself romantically involved with him. I knew his family, and he would have been a wonderful Husband, but there was no "spark" in that department.

I've never had that kind of relationship but I do enjoy reading about it.
Rita Wray 12:44pm April 1, 2014)

I do like that theme but can't think of a favorite book title
for it. I think that some of the strongest marriages I have
seen are friends to lovers, they already know all of the
great and not so great but love and are attracted to each
other anyway.
G. Bisbjerg 12:48pm April 1, 2014)

I enjoy friends to lovers stories... knowing two people have been there for each other for years suddenly finding more... thanks for sharing!
Colleen Conklin 12:54pm April 1, 2014)

This book sounds good. I'd really like to read.
Susan Falkler 1:22pm April 1, 2014)

Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts (part of her Bride Quartet) is a good friends-to-lovers book. Thanks for the post and giveaway.
G S Moch 2:22pm April 1, 2014)

Sounds like a really good spring read. I always wonder if the friends to lovers relationship works or if it ends the relationship altother.
Vennie Martinisi 4:14pm April 1, 2014)

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. I'm really enjoying reading all your
Peggy, I definitely think you need that spark. I think you made a wise choice in
your case.
Rita, I'm glad you like the theme.
G. Bisbjerg, I agree about friends to lovers having strong marriages. I'm still
with my husband after thirty years!
Susan, I hope you enjoy it if you get it.
GS Moch, Nora Roberts is awesome. I'll have to look for that book.
L Lam, thanks for commenting!
Vennie, I think in real life it can go either way, that's why this trope is so
Joan Kilby 4:32pm April 1, 2014)

I do like the theme...the build up
Diane Pollock 5:17pm April 1, 2014)

I love friends to lovers stories. I recently read NO STRINGS ATTACHED by Nicolette Day and really enjoyed it.

I met my hubby at work and though we were friendly, we were more co-workers than friends at first.
Marcy Shuler 7:10pm April 1, 2014)

Hi Diane, the build up is half the fun!

Marcelyn, Co-workers to lovers is a similar kind of thing, isn't it? Another tricky
situation, romance-wise until you take the plunge.
Joan Kilby 7:20pm April 1, 2014)

It sounds like a everyday romance. Also lovers that stay
friends can make a good marriage.
Deb Pelletier 7:44pm April 1, 2014)

I just finished reading one and yes I do like them. It
gives the conflict and tension more depth. Some of them are
good and some are not. If there is not spark then it is not
worth the effort. Too much conflict just does not do it for
me either. There has to be a happy balance.
I think your book sounds very good so far. I can't wait to
read it.
Tina Ullrich 10:19pm April 1, 2014)

Deb, yes! It's so important that the lovers stay friends. After all, that's what
brought them together in the first place.

Tina, I agree about the happy balance and tried very hard in Mad About You to
get the conflict v fun levels on a par. I hope you enjoy it!
Joan Kilby 10:44pm April 1, 2014)

I love the from friend to lover trope. I do believe that being friend with the person first would lead to a better relationship.
Kai Wong 1:29am April 2, 2014)

i really dont have a fav i love romance books all of them
Denise Smith 4:03am April 2, 2014)

Yes, I enjoy friends-to-lovers stories, as well as all sorts of other stories. Variety is the spice of life!
Can't recall a book with that theme. (Hey! I'm in my fifties! It's amazing I can remember where my car keys are!)
When I first saw the cover, I thought it was Erin Andrews and Maks from Dancing with the Stars. Oops!
Elaine Seymour 9:41am April 2, 2014)

I do enjoy friends-to-lovers stories, although I don't have a favorite. I think being friends is so important in a relationship. Your book sounds great. Thanks for this chance to win a copy.
Nancy Reynolds 9:43am April 2, 2014)

Sounds interesting. I think friends can work as a romance.
Pam Howell 9:49am April 2, 2014)

I always considered my husband to be my best friend.
Anna Speed 12:09pm April 2, 2014)

I think it's great to be friends and know you really like the other person's company before the love factor comes into place.
Sandy Fielder 1:06pm April 2, 2014)

I love the title and the cover!
Denise Austin 2:01pm April 2, 2014)

I enjoyed your post!
Terri Childress 2:26pm April 2, 2014)

Lovely to wake up to more comments! Thanks for stopping by Kai, Denise,
Elaine, Nancy, Pam, Anna, Sandy, Denise and Terri. You ladies make some
great points about friends to lovers.

I love the cover, too, and was so pleased Entangled liked my title and let me
keep it.

Just to clarify, I'm giving away a $15 Amazon gift certificate, not the actual
book. But you could buy Mad About You with it, plus a whole lot more books.

Happy Reading!
Joan Kilby 7:13pm April 2, 2014)

After 32 years of marriage my husband is still my best friend. Your book is a must buy.
Judi Estrin 8:22pm April 2, 2014)

Very steamy, I'm sure. :)
Sally Hannoush 9:21pm April 2, 2014)

I have seen this cover before!! I love fake engagement stories!!
Lisa Hutson 10:30pm April 2, 2014)

I really enjoy reading friends to lovers stories. The most recent one I have read is Tawny Weber's A SEAL'S KISS. My beloved late husband of 39 years and I started out as good friends, turned into best friends, and evolved into a wonderful and warm loving relationship.
Cathy Phillips 4:20pm April 3, 2014)

Your book sounds interesting. I've never known anyone who went from friends to lovers in real life.
Carol Woodruff 7:18pm April 3, 2014)

Best friends to lovers is a great trope.
Mary Preston 9:31pm April 3, 2014)

Love to read about friends to lovers. Especially when the relationship creeps up on the lovers. Your book is a must read.
Sharon Extine 1:17am April 4, 2014)

It sounds so similar to my
own story sans the
engagement part. I would
love to read this particular
book as soon as I can lay my
hands on it :)
