Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway | Love Surfaced by Michelle Lynn

The equations are simple.

Piper Ashby + Brad Ashby = Twin Siblings
Brad Ashby + Tanner McCain = Best Friends
Piper Ashby + Tanner McCain = Off limits

Tanner and I abided by the rules. We stayed on our designated sides of the relationship circle.

Ignoring swarming butterflies.
Brushing off skipped heartbeats.
Settling on lingering stares.

Here’s the secret … a hand extended over that invisible line once, exponentially changing the equation. I was convinced we could make our relationship work until Tanner broke the trust he embedded in me from the age of seven.

One deceit of mega proportions and the relationship we built for that short month vanished. I swore never to speak to him again and it’s worked. Until now—two years later, when my brother’s wedding places me face-to-face with the best man—Tanner McCain.

Leaving one equation to be solved. Can love surface twice?

Falling in love with your brother’s best friend is a little hard, keeping it for a long time might cause a whole lot of trouble.

They tried not to cross that thin line between friendship and more than friendship, but as they grow, and they continue to spend time with each other, Piper and Tanner could no longer deny the attraction that sizzles between the two of them.

For Piper, she had been in love with him for a very long time. But Tanner loves his best friend, and she was losing hope that he was finally going to see her more than just a little sister. Sometimes, she would feel she’s a little more special to him, and sometimes, she was back to that label of being a little sister once again. It was killing her.

So, when an opportunity knocks, she grabs it with both eyes and hands wide open. She knew the consequences, but she threw caution to the wind. She was finally having the man of her dreams, and there was no stopping her.

Just when everything was perfect, and they were ready to finally tell her twin, he did some epic mistake: way out of proportion that broke her trust and her heart at the same time.

Two years later, they were coming face to face for her brother’s wedding. Is she ready to see him? Was he forgiven? Will they be able to get a second chance? Will she finally listen to him?

Tanner was an amazing friend, he meant well, wanted to help his friend, but it brought him so much heartache. It was not just him, but Piper as well. He wanted to shield her from the truth, until he finally thought it was time for her to know. This was his second chance – and he was willing to do everything to have her once again.

Michelle Lynn wrote a great story on love, friendship and second chances. It’s an old plot, with some new twist. It’s a perfect summer read that will make you fall in love in no time. Nothing beats relationship that started from friendship. But, when trust and hearts get broken you don’t only lose the love of your life, but your friend as well. 

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids.  She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write.   With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends.  But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
