So, I am going to start this by saying I did not read Wild Highway. I probably should have but I didn’t. So I went into this completely blind not knowing what was going to happen. But even though I hadn’t read Wild Highway I was immediately drawn into this story. Devney has crafted a simply beautiful Friends to Lovers Romance that is sure to leave a smile on your face and a warmth in your heart.
Kat and Cash have been friends for 12 years and during that time Kat has developed not so friendly feelings towards Cash, but has kept it to herself for a myriad of reasons. I loved watching Kat and Cash’s relationship, you could tell they have been friends forever, they just had this comfortable feeling around each other. That feeling of calm was felt through the pages and settled into your soul. And watching as their relationship progressed you could feel that tension build and build spilling from the pages and nearly suffocating you. This is the mark of a great writer when those feelings that they elicit literally surround you. The only thing that I would have liked more of would be the build-up for the progression from friends to lovers, it felt like it happened rather quickly but it was still beautifully done.
I loved Cash he was absolute perfection. This man is the very definition of a really noble man. He is sweet, loyal and pays the utmost attention to detail when it comes to Kat. But, the parts I loved most were when you got to see his possessive alpha side. Who doesn’t like a man who’s going to get all growly and intense on occasion to show you just how much he cares. This dichotomy between his friendship side and his alpha side was quite intriguing. I wasn’t sure he had it in him, but I am very pleased that I was wrong.
Kat is wonderful, she is someone who’s come from a very dark and heartbreaking past. And she has fought tooth and nail to make something of herself. I was so very proud of her I’d only just met her in this book but that didn’t stop my heart from swelling just learning how far she has come in her life, and that she did it on her own. This woman is a gift and proves that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and put all your effort behind it. I loved Kat’s tenacity and spirit that just could not be broken. She is truly an exceptional heroine.
Devney has created a warm and inviting friends to lover’s romance that will give you all the feels. Kat and Cash are absolute perfection and the progression of their relationship is done in the best way. This book is a perfect light read with a very satisfying HEA and low angst that is sure to make you smile.

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.
In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.
Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.
The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.
Or rip them apart.
