Summary

Falling for your best friend is hard. 

Georgiana - Georgie to everyone outside her family - figured out long ago that being in love with your straight best friend sucks. Turns out it's even worse when that friend, Madelyn, tells you she's not so straight after all. After it becomes clear to Georgie that she needs to get over Madelyn, Georgie moves cities and starts a new job. 

To grad student Madelyn, though, the sudden rift between the friends prompts painful introspection. A year later, she realizes her feelings for Georgie are romantic after all. Madelyn plans to use their annual winter cabin getaway to confess her love. 

But Canadian winters are unpredictable. When Madelyn and Georgie are snowed into their cabin in the woods, the two are forced into difficult conversations that confront deeply felt emotions about the past, present, and future. Can the friends find common ground after all they've been through?  

Contains mature themes.

Awkward disasters...and then they lost their backbone

A decent premise with a great start but then got mired in flashbacks that really didn’t pertain to the moments set in the present. The great “climax” if it could be described as one was a semi-judgmental confrontation that should have been a blow out rather than a fizzle. While a happy ending, the road getting there was far too jumbled and meandered far too much.

A Best Friend Is Forever

Georgie and Madalynn have been best friends since kindergarten. Georgie is gay and hiding her love for Madalynn. Life gets complicated when and hope for a new relationship makes a winter getaway very dicey. Erotic romance. Great performance. Recommend.

Eventually I liked this book

I started the ok when I got it, but I couldn’t get into it so I read many other books, yesterday I decided to go back to it, and immediately I got into the story and I loved it. Never give up
