    Entertaining

    4.5 star review of Almost Just Friends (Wildstone #4) by Jill Shalvis Whilst this is book 4 in the Wildstone series it can most certainly be read as a stand alone and is Piper Manning and Camden Reid’s story. Jill Shalvis writes characters that are human, that have flaws, vulnerabilities and are easy to relate too.  There is always a lot of depth to her characters and Almost Just Friends is a good example of that. This was at times an emotional read and I freely admit tears were shed. Piper has always been a “mother” to her siblings, but now it’s time for her to shine and follow her dreams. Most of us love our families but we all know that sometimes we don’t always like them and after being cooped up on a boat with them for 10 days, Piper needs her alone time.  Camden has his own demons and regrets to deal with. The chemistry and banter between Piper and Camden got to me and I found myself smiling frequently throughout this story.  The family dynamics were easy to relate to and I was invested in the romance of the story. There is drama, a little angst, spice and humour; I also loved Piper’s list making, a trait we share.  Meeting Camden just as a wild storm hits, Piper decides to take a chance. She has big dreams and feels it’s finally her time. Can the feelings that are developing between them withstand the pressures of their families?  A beautifully written story with strong writing and characters that you cannot help but fall for.

    A Wonderful Story

    Piper Manning has put her life on hold to raise her brother and sister after the loss of their parents. She has one last thing to do until she can reclaim her life and realise her dreams. She needs to renovate the Lake House she inherited from her grandparents, and then sell it... after that she can study for her college degree to qualify as a physician's assistant. At her birthday party, Piper meets the charismatic and brooding Camden Reid. As they bond, a huge storm hits the town of Wildstone, and the pair are forced to spend time together. But then Piper’s siblings, Winnie and Gavin, come scuttling home with problems of their own... Almost Just Friends was a delightful tale that not only focuses on romance but encompasses the families surrounding the main characters and all of their particular dilemmas and cans of worms. Piper and her siblings only had each other in life and while their lives weren’t picture-book perfect, they showed that with their family unity and strength, they could overcome any obstacles. The intimacy and affection between Piper and Cam took a while to develop but it was definitely worth waiting for. A great, very highly recommended story, overall. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Headline Eternal via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.
