    Great romance with a bit of family drama

    Piper pulled at my heartstrings from page one. She's obviously has a lot of control issues, but who wouldn't when they are basically handed the responsibility of two younger siblings at age 13? And neither her brother Gavin nor her sister Winnie were/are easy siblings to deal with! As soon as she meets Cam at the bar, the reader could feel the sparks shooting off the page! These two balance each other out, even if Piper is more than a bit gun shy and reluctant to put a name to those tummy flutters! I warmed up to Gavin right away, but honestly, I wanted to smack Winnie! Yes, she's young but she's extremely immature and kind of flighty. There are a lot of secrets to be discovered in this little family, as well as a few from Cam and his dad Emmitt. I sat and read this book all in one day...there was no way I was going to walk away before I read the last page! It was filled with both Shalvis' signature humor as well as little moments that touch your heart and bring tears to your eyes. I loved Almost Just Friends and give it a very enthusiastic 5 stars!

    Almost Just Friends will warm your heart!

    This story dives right in to the family drama and pulls at your heart strings with every chapter. This book definitely had me crying more than laughing, but it was so worth the emotional ups and downs. Each character pulls you in a different direction, whether it's through loss, drama, or addiction. Such a beautifully told story, I can't recommend it enough! Almost Just Friends can be read as a stand alone, but you'll find yourself wanting to experience everything in Wildstone, and coming back for more!

    Loved it!

    So many facets to this story. Piper and Camden, of course, were the main focus of this story, but relationships among all of the characters - Piper's siblings, Camden and his dad - added so many extra layers. Almost Just Friends is a story of romance, but also of family bonds, forgiveness and healing. Loved the inclusion of the reunion of Piper's brother and his ex boyfriend - it's nice to see LGBTQ inclusion in "mainstream" genres.

    Best book of the series!

    Happy to report that the continuation of the Wildstone series by Jill Shalvis does not disappoint. From practically the very first word in Almost Just Friends I was captivated. I found the story had many solid story lines which kept my interest. This story is the fourth book in the Wildstone series but rest assured, it can be read as a stand alone. Piper is a strong woman… she has had to be since her teen years (she was just 13) with looking after her younger siblings following the death of their parents. Now that they are grown and on their own, she is looking forward to finally pursuing her dreams (after fixing up and selling the lakeside home). Before that can happen, a storm hits and causes destruction and mayhem at the lakeside home. Well, the storm isn’t the only thing that causes mayhem… Camden Reid provides a totally different type of mayhem  And then Piper’s siblings come home - each with their own challenges and secrets. Trust me…everyone has a secret in this book - but that is what was so interesting and kept me reading far later every evening than I should have. What I found with this book (as with the majority of Ms. Shalvis’ books in fact) is that I was able to immerse myself in the story and feel SO many different emotions throughout the story: sadness, heartache, love, understanding and let me not forget to mention that there were times when I could not help but laugh! There was also romance - as to be expected - between Piper and Cam, but also between Piper’s brother Gavin and his first boyfriend. One particular heading under chapter 11 really spoke to me: “When I say whatever, I really mean screw you.” Piper’s list’s and her bucket list (and hr bucket list of wishes AND a secret secret bucket list of wishes!) provided some chuckles: • Occasionally maybe make an effort to look nice. • Don’t cut your own bans no matter how sad you are. • Never, ever, EVER, under any circumstances fall in love. While there were lighter moments within the story there were also topics, which I found quite heavy - for example having Piper come to terms with her parent’s death or Cam trying to forgive himself for being mad at his brother when his brother passed away. Almost Just Friends was a delightful read with many layers that kept this reader engaged throughout. As a tried and true fan of Ms. Shalvis, I must say that to date this is by far the best one yet. I would also like to say that I love the name of the book - Almost Just Friends. It really suits the book.

    I devoured this book. Jill Shalvis at her finest. Filled with sarcasm, romance and humour. Who wouldn't love this story.
