 I was nine years old when I met Everett Cartwright and claimed him as my best friend. I was sixteen years old when I gave him my virginity. 
Now, at twenty, the lines of our friendship have blurred as our relationship shifts into something different. 
Something deeper. 
It wasn’t supposed to happen like this. 
I wasn’t supposed to fall for my best friend. 
He wasn’t supposed to fall for me. 
And when we finally confessed our feelings, he wasn’t supposed to have a girlfriend. 
But falling in love with my best friend was easy. 
It was what came after that almost destroyed us.

Spring Semester is unlike the other two books in this standalone series, who have two heroines in college and fall into a forbidden spellbinding love with their much older partners!

Spring Semester is a best friends to lovers romance that will HAVE YOU HOOKED. It tells a tale of two people who have been the best of friends since childhood, grown up together, and are so deeply and irrevocably in love with each other. But what’s the catch? Because there’s always a catch in being in love with your best friend, right?
 They haven’t told each other.
They aren’t formally committed to each other.
They aren’t exactly, each other’s.

 This story is unlike the rest I’ve read in the ‘friends to lovers’ trope.

 When you’re secretly, yet not so secretly in love with your best friend, but don’t want to spill your guts out and outright admit it... that’s Leighton and Everett.

“What we have is sacred, and I don’t think it’s a connection that’ll ever go away.” 

While Everett has a dominant, sexy AF personality... Leighton has sassy, fierce personality that matches exactly that, and these two together... off the charts chemistry, angst, lust, anger, hatred, and locked up emotions that you just cannot keep contained.

“I’ve never for anyone the way I feel about her.”

 Everett does everything in his right to make Leighton happy, but sometimes, it just doesn’t translate in the way he wants it too. His means are good, but sometimes the actions don’t seem to fit those means.

 “She understands me on a level that no one gets...”

 Leighton is so driven by the love and loyalty and familiarity that she has so deeply, that she can’t help but be so forgiving, so selfless, and so sure about Everett even in her moments of doubt.

 “I’m home. He tastes familiar. Like comfort. Like home.” 

Everett and Leighton cross that line between friendship and love many times, even when they didn’t realize it. Sometimes, I wanted to knock their heads together and yell at them to see what’s in front of them, not to miss out on what is right there.

But these two, they were hiding behind their feelings so much, thinking it would shield them from the truth. When the truth is right in front of them, each other. That’s what I loved so much about this romance, the push and pull, the internal battle of the heart, and secret feelings that you just could not deny! You could feel their feelings seeping off the pages, see their emotions written through every word, and see their chemistry go off the charts!

 QB Tyler writes an epic romance that will hook you right from the start, keep you turning the pages, have you reeling, and leave you completely breathless! She also writes my most favorite heroes and heroines! I fall in love with her characters each and every time and true to her own fashion, she always makes the romance steam level happen!

I love the perfect balance she has between character development, plot/world building, drama/angst, and heat!! I cannot recommend this series enough! Like seriously! I love that we got to see Skylar and Peyton! I also loved the dynamic between Everett, Pat, and Dave! You must read this series, even if they’re all stand-alones because you get to see glimpses of some of your favorite couples!

Tyler always throws in treats for us that way! I cannot praise her enough for this book! Bravo, Ms. Tyler! You blew me away completely! I can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve next 😉
