Summary

Roo:

Five years ago, I walked away from Sunbury, Oregon, and left my best friend behind. The move was supposed to get my life on track. I even had a list: Life-changing epilepsy surgery. Check. See the world. Check. Get over my straight best friend... Not exactly. 

No matter where I go or who I meet, I can't let Tanner go. I'm back to tell him how I feel. To get the closure I need once and for all. Only now I'm here and falling for him all over again, it's getting harder to say the words. Because once I have my closure, I'll be gone. And this time it will be for good. 

Tanner:

When my best friend, Roo, left for Australia, it was the worst day of my life. I thought we'd have each other always. But Roo needed the surgery so I let him go, thinking he'd come straight back. Five years is a long time. 

Now he's here, all I want is to hold on tight. I need to show him what he means to me. The problem is, I'm not exactly sure what that is. My draw to him has always been confusing and different - everyone in town says so. But I struggle to understand it. All I know is I won't survive him leaving again. And I'll do anything to make him stay. 

Contains mature themes.

My Roo, Your Tanner, Gahhhh!

I love a good 'not just friends' storyline and this was that at its best! This adorable tale had one of my favorite scenes in any book... in a bar no less. Such beautiful moments of realization and vulnerability. Narrators were perfection. I searched for more from the author and both narrators!

Fun along with romance

Friendship combined Romance gives this book a sweet vibe. Royse & Tanner have such a great friendship going on, so it's only natural that romance binds them together. Both narrators have done an excellent job creating this audiobook. Also Saxon has written a fabulous book. I highly recommend it to others.

Enjoyable

Roo’s mother had the worst Australian accent I’ve ever heard. Sounded more South African to my Aussie ears. Other than that, it was a very enjoyable read.

MM Best Friends to Lovers

This was just darling!! Wow, I loved it sooo much. It was low-angst, best friends to lovers, unrequited love and bi-awakening. First, Tanner was swoon-worthy with just how wonderful of a person he was. I really loved Roo as well, and thought he was mature through everything. I also loved that they didn't have the complete lack of communication that I would expect from this type of book. I loved it that they were able to talk through what they were feeling and there was not an unnecessary uncoupling. I also really, really enjoyed the side characters and cannot wait to read their stories. This narrations is one of my favorites, especially with two of my favorite narrators being Alexander Cendese & Kirt Graves!! Must read for sure.

Rich and delicious

What can I say? I am new to this author and I feel like Ive discovered a treasure. I binged on this story, The characters in Just Friends were so real and rich and likable as well as relatible. Tanner and Roo were likeable characters and im left with that feeling of having made new friends. I am excited to read everything this author has written. the narration was top-notch. I highly recommend.

I like this a lot

This book was so good, not only was it steamy but it was filled with so many emotions. The only issue i had was the fact the roe was so against making friends of the town folk even when they showed interest. But if you can get over some snark then you will love this book just as much as myself

Well....

As far as stories go, this is a cotton candy read with very sweet characters.

Narrations are - well Kirt Graves is excellent as usually but, Alexander Cendese has a small timing problem. He runs characters together.
