    Nice friends to lovers romance

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review. This is book five in the By the Bay series, but can be read as a stand-alone book. Wes has had the hots for Hannah since they met two years ago. He hasn’t acted on his attraction, and they have become friends. His brother and sister-in-law recently died and he is now the guardian to his three year old niece, Everly. Hannah has a tough life with a neglectful mother who eventually abandoned her. She ended up bouncing around the foster care system, never having a steady influence in her life. She decides that she wants a family, and since she has no man in her life, she goes the insemination route. When her apartment floods out, she ends up staying with her “friend” Wes and his niece Everly. This is a great take on the friends to lovers trope. I really loved Wes, he is pretty much the perfect guy. Hannah is a very insecure, and cannot see the perfect guy who is right in front of her. I loved them both and enjoyed the development of their relationship. This is my first book by this author, and I will definitely be reading the prior books in this series.

    4.5 Heartwarming, Steamy Stars!

    I loved this friends to lovers romance. It was heartwarming, hilarious, sweet, and very sexy! Wes and Hannah have known each other for years, having mutual friends. They have been attracted to each other, but never thought it would go anywhere. Hannah grew up in the foster care system and has always craved love and a family. She is in a place in her life when she decides to have a baby and make a family of her own. Her meet cute with Wes, after not seeing him for months, is so awkward and hilarious. Wes had suffered a tragic loss and is the guardian of his adorable three-year-old niece, Everly. Wes and Hannah reconnect, and find they have so much more in common now. But Hannah is used to people walking away from her and won't allow herself to fall for this charming, kind and sexy man and his sweet niece. Wes always avoided relationships, but this silly, strong, and beautiful woman, sneaked into his heart and he was determined to convince her he would never leave. I had so much fun reading this charming, exhilarating and steamy story. There were so many hilarious situations, heartwarming moments, and steamy, sexy moments as well. This story had it all, interesting characters, witty banter, and steamy love scenes, all in a multilayered story. I love this series and can't wait for more from By the Bay!

    This book is all about the Swoon!!!!

    This book is all about the swoon! I couldn't help but love how perfect Wes is and how he has a whole superman complex going on. He just can't help but to try to step in and attempt to fix whatever is wrong in the lives of those he cares about. He steps in and takes care of his niece, doing everything he can to help her get through the tragedy that has fallen on them. He steps in to help Hannah, even when her circumstances might have made any other guy shy away. Hannah, in her own right, is a strong, take charge woman. She decided on what she wanted in her life, and did what she needed to do, on her own, to get what she wanted. From getting through school, to impending parenthood, she did it all on her own, and didn't have any thoughts to asking for help. Until she didn't have a choice. What she thought she wanted, and worked so hard to make happen, didn't exactly work out the way she intended. But her friends stepped in, helping out, even when she didn't think she needed it! This book just goes to show, family is what you make of it. It doesn't have to be by blood, good friends will be there when no one else will. And sometimes, love is waiting for you when and where you least expect it! The By the Bay series has been one amazing story right after the other, and Wes and Hannah fit right in with this amazing group!

    Cute and engaging

    ****Decidedly By Chance was a cute sexy story basically exploring the components of what constitutes family. Wes recently has become the guardian of his young niece. Hannah, a pediatric nurse is pregnant via a donor clinic. Raised in the foster care system she has a difficult time trusting. Fate in the form of a massive leak in her apartment brings them together as temporary roommates. The premise was good and the author has a good command of English. There were sweet interactions with Wes’s niece as Wes sets out to convince Hannah that he has relationship staying power. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley.
