Falling for her Brother's Best Friend by Noelle Adams

After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she's fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She's going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.

And that includes her brother's best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.

She doesn't want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he's not a nice guy anymore. He's made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he's looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn't even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it's been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend's little sister.

Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn't want Noah.

At all.

Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.

Falling for her Brother's Best Friend is the first in a new series about a group of best friends who have sisters who are also best friends.  I was intrigued by the premise of this series.  Having these three couples find love with each other should be fun to watch.  The first couple up is Noah and Emma.  Friends to lovers is among my favorite tropes in romance.  

I enjoyed this romance.  I thought it was a really sweet and quick read.  Noah was definitely a tortured soul.  He had spent the last 7 years moving from place to place as part of his job.    His fear of commitment and turning out like his father was understandable.  Emma had always dated losers and had always had a crush on Noah.  I liked that this couple had some history.  I thought Noah's nickname for her was cute, especially after  finding out  the reason for it.    There was one instance where I thought that Emma kind of went a little overboard in thinking Noah had given up on them a bit too soon without finding out all of the facts.   But, it all worked out in the end.

I do recommend giving this one a shot.  I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
