‘Love is friendship set on fire ‘ Jeremy Taylor

Wow! Wow! Double wow’s are needed here because Max and Rosie’s friendship didn’t just catch on fire, it exploded into an inferno! Talk about bloody hot! These two burned up the pages as the chemistry between them went from zero to sixty in seconds flat!

‘With my tongue, I made her understand all the shit I hadn’t yet said. I want you. I adore you. I need to be inside you.’

Max and Rosie’s relationship became the ultimate friends to lovers’ romance. Theirs was a friendship that spanned twenty years and saw them through highs and lows, each being a shoulder to lean on, as they shared so much of their lives together. It was a friendship that saw them go through their share of hook-ups and failed relationships which never really stood a chance, because Rosie and Max couldn’t see what was standing right before them. Though, we expect Max knew he wanted Rosie way before she even realised!

‘She was so important to me, such an integral part of my world.’

After twenty years in the friend zone, things changed the day Max caught Rosie in the nuddy! Not a stitch to be had. Seeing Rosie bare naked sent a synapsis to his brain that had Max declaring her his! We could almost feel the rumble of him professing ‘mine‘ through our Kindles!

‘I fucking adored her. Adored her so hard it hurt.’

So, what happens when your friend tells you he wants you, and desperately so? Do you take the plunge at the risk of ruining the friendship or do you hold out? Well, there was no way the latter was an option once the sparks began to fly between Rosie and Max. No sirreee…..we would have combusted if they didn’t release their pent up sexual attraction! Even our Kindles would have had blue balls!

‘He was the gallon of Rocky Road I should not have. He was the box of chocolates I should not eat.’

We adore Nicola Rendell’s stories and characters, with So Good providing the perfect lazy Sunday afternoon entertainment. It was low on angst and drama and high on sweetness, sexiness, silliness and swooniness…oh the swooning, but not for the reason you would expect.

You see, as much as Rosie and Max’s romance set our pulses racing, the swoon factor was provided by one of the most sweetest, cutest, and heart-warming relationships you could imagine. It was the Dogmance between Max and the little dog he rescued, Cupcake, the Chihuahua mix who had this red blooded, possessive, dirty talking, gruff, alpha Maine carpenter turning to utter mush, and in turn turning these two avid dog lovers into complete mush! We were putty in their hands!

“….I want to be the one to treat you like you deserve.”

We’ve read everything this author has written and loved them all, and whilst So Good may not be our favourite, it still retained everything we adore about this lady’s work. Seriously, the way she weaves an animal tale into her stories lately has left us in fits of giggles and puddles of love. Being dog owners we always relate and can picture every experience she draws on as though we’re watching it unfold.

So, if you’re looking for an easy read that’ll put a huge smile on your face, a dirty talking sexy sweet alpha, a cute heroine, a savage and sassy feline named Julia Caesar, and a sweet as pie dog named Cupcake, we’re sure So Good is going to tick all those boxes!

“In my eyes, you’re everything.”


On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.

Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.

But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?

It feels so good.
