A great read about friendship. Kyle and Livie have been best friends since they were little kids. But when Kyle wants to marry her lifelong enemy, Mia, their friendship is put to the test. When it becomes too much, Livie pushes him away and goes to run a bookstore in Scotland. By the time Kyle realises his mistake, it may be too late. Can he fix his mistake and get his friendship back?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Livie following her dream despite her feelings or Kyle as a good friend but also struggling to find happiness. Great cast of supporting characters like the fun friend Jenny or the supportive and honest Liam. A great villain in Mia as relatable and cruel.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the wedding full of life and people with the music and the lilacs full of sound and smells. Or the bookstores sense of a small haven with the homely feel with shelves of books and coffee bar with its soft and colourful furnishings perfectly written. Or the magical sense of the fairy lights by the lake under the moon, making it feel like of another world away from the reality of the situation. I also loved the nature of Scotland with its language and culture and food and people given the respect it deserves and also giving the novel a sense of character and humour. The switch between perspectives worked well to display both sides of events and was easy to follow with names in chapter titles. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

Fictional-ish: A Friends to Lovers Romance is the first book I have read by Natalina Reis. It was a cute romantic comedy that I enjoyed. The story line was pretty predictable, but still had cute parts to stand apart from the rest. Two best friends, that finally realize they are in love. Well, Livie always knew, Kyle just took a decade or two to realize it. I always hate the parts of stories where someone gets emotional and jumps to conclusions, just to realize they blew things out of proportion. So aside from that scene, I liked the book. It has a lot of funny parts, and good supporting characters. The chemistry between Livie and Kyle, and their friends was great. The unique details to this story make it stand out from other stories of similar plot. But for the most part, we know how the story is going to end. I will read more by the author.

I found this story to be fun, romantic and up and down emotionally. I loved the setting of this story, the author did an exceptional job making you feel like you are there experiencing this wonderful place. There were times that I wasn’t sure what was going to happen between Livie and Kyle. There are some wonderful characters in this book that made this story that much more enjoyable. This author writes so seamlessly and let’s the story flow nicely. I highly recommend this book.

This is the first book I have read from this author and I enjoyed every minute of it. I love a good friends to lovers but this talented author exceeded all my expectations. I was hooked on this storyline from page one. I could not help but to fall in love with these characters. It only took me a few hours to devour this incredible book.

Livie Dunn has been in love with her best friend since grade school. Kyle and her were inseparable until he met her. Mia and Livie hate each other. They are well known enemies. Livie always thought that one day Kyle would see the feelings she had for him but when Kyle tells her that he is marrying Mia she knew it would never be the same. Livie decides she needs a new start so she leaves and follows her dreams as a bookstore owner. She is now living her dream in a small town. Livie has a new life but when Kyle shows back up in her life things start to get very complicated. Will Livie get her happily ever after or will she continue just being only a friend?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, heartbreak, and forgiveness. You will fall in love with these characters right from the beginning. Livie is a beautiful woman that loves her books. She has always loved Kyle and all she wants is for him to be happy. Kyle is very handsome with a heart of gold. All he wants is to find the right woman for him. This talented author will keep you at the edge of your seat until the end. I can’t wait to see what she will write about next.

Fictional-ish: A Friends to Lovers Romance by​ ​Natalina R​eis is a friends to lovers romance and ​I am still not sure how i feel about it. I enjoyed it, but it is not one of my favourites from Natalina. It was and easy read but I really wanted to smack some sense into both Livie and Kyle the main characters and I really didn’t warm to them easily.

Livie’s best enemy has treated her like hell all their lives and always wanted what Livie had. The one thing that meant the most to Livie is the one thing that her best enemy took with no care for her actions nor others feelings. Livie’s heart is broken when her best friend picks another over her and takes a job out of the country hoping to heal.

Kyle is getting married to his best friends enemy and has lost his best friend and the one person who really loves him but being a typical man he thinks with his other head. When things get bad he takes a chance to reach out to the one person who had always stood by him.

It is an interesting read had had some funny moment and a few sad ones but once I was able to put aside my thoughts on the main characters it wasn’t to bad. I am waiting to see what comes next for Natalina.

Fictional-ish: A Friends to Lovers Romance by Natalina Reis is a sweet story. Livie and Kyle have been the best of friends since primary school but Kyle’s marriage has created a problem. Livie has had an enemy in Mia since they were young and now Kyle has married her. Livie is offered the chance to not only move but also open a new bookstore and jumps at the opportunity. Will Kyle figure out Livie loves him and as more than a friend?
This is a sweet romantic story. The characters are relatable and I like the story is told from both point of views. I also enjoyed the Scottish setting. This was a fun story to read and I’m glad I picked it up.

This is a lovely story of romance, betrayal and realising love was in the one place you didnt think to look.

Livie and Kyle have been friends since school, although they both felt love for each other but never acted upon it.

Fast forward and Kyle is set to marry Livie’s worst enemy, a decision which leaves her heartbroken and devestated, so when the opportunity comes up to move to Scotland and run her own bookstore she jumps at the chance.
Realising that he has messed up Kyle jumps on a plane to make things right and confess his love but with his ex wife still clinging on to him its not going to be a smooth journey.

Its a book full of romance and proves that if love is meant to be it will find a way
