Publisher's Summary

Someone should have warned me about falling in love with my best friend.

Carolina

Little did I know when Rex came to my locker attempting to bribe me that he’d turn into my everything. We’d become best friends. I’d steal his heart. He’d steal mine. Nothing has changed in the years of our friendship. Not our connection, not our feelings, or that we still hold each other’s hearts. But his heart isn’t the only thing I’ve kept. The secret I’m hiding could shatter the only man I’ve ever loved.

Rex

I’ve loved Carolina since the day she called my bluff. Our friendship always came first. She believed in me when no one else did. I tucked away my feelings because I couldn’t survive a life without her. We crossed the line once, and I swore it’d never happen again. As time passes, the harder it becomes to live up to that promise. Until finally, there’s no holding back.

LOVED IT!! 🥰🥰

I LOVE a good friends to lovers romance and Rex and Carolina’s story does not disappoint! There’s nothing better than having a guy best friend. I married mine so I might be a little bias.


“I love Carolina Adams, and there’s nothing I can do about it because I wouldn’t survive losing her.”

Being in love with your best friend is as easy as it isn’t. Loving them is easy because you already know them better than they know themselves. Fighting the attraction is the hardest part. The fear of taking your relationship to the next level is real. Charity Ferrell portrays this perfectly.

Just Friends is an angsty, slow burn romance that I’m sure you will love as much as I do! It’s always a pleasure being back in Blue Beech!!

Samantha Cook and Aaron Shedlock did an amazing job narrating! I could listen to their voices alll day long 😂

Loved

OMG, I loved Rex and Carolina so much. I listened to this book in one sitting. Friends to lovers is one of my favorite type of stories. Loved this whole story. Loved listening to them fall in love and always be there for each other even when there was that bit of a wrench thrown in to their relationship. Rex was always there for Carolina. They were the perfect couple. Aaron and Samantha really brought the characters to life. They did an awesome job and I loved them as Rex and Carolina. This was the first book that I have listened to from her and I just loved it. Highly recommend this story. Gave me all the feels.

Beautifully told story

Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes, especially one that spans a few years. I love really getting to know them as friends and getting an idea of that relationship before they become lovers and this book was all of that. Carolina and Rex’s story starts in high school where they don’t really like each other and then blossoms through the years into a very dependent relationship with each other without ever crossing the lines. Their friendship was beautiful the way they depended on each other, looked out for each other and supported each other.

When something finally happens between them, no one is surprised. It is a new mystical part to their relationship and seems just right. But will Carolina’s past be the complication they cannot overcome.

I listened to this on Audible and I love a good emotional story to listen to. The narrators, Shedlock and Cook, did a phenomenal job portraying these characters throughout the years. They really made me feel like I was living through the story. Their voices were easy to listen to and made it a beautiful story to listen to.

Amazing book in audio!

Wow!! This slow burn, friends to lovers was AMAZING! The chemistry and tension between Rex and Carolina was amazing and I couldn't get enough of it! I had so many butterflies listening to Rex and Carolina's story, and loved the history we got between these two and how they are in the future. The perfect friends to lovers story!

Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cook did such a great job bringing these two to life, and I love the added layers they bring out in their characters. These were two new narrators for me, and I loved their voices. I love when audio enhances a book, and this one absolutely sucked you into the Blue Beech world, and I couldn't put this down!

Would recommend this story, this series and this author to anyone!

Ferrell knocks at the door of your heart ....

It's easy get caught in the backstory of Rex and Lina. Ferrell knocks at the door of your heart and Shedlock and Cook blow the door wind open. Forget the cliches, ignore the overdone trope and remember the way these characters make you feel. I got lost in the heartache, captivated by the romance and couldn't walk away from the drama that is Just Friends.

Amazing Story

Wow!! Rex is everything I knew he would be... Totally swoon worthy book and I couldn't put it down. I loved this book and all the characters.

Carolina and Rex are one of my most favorite couples! These two are so sweet and the friends to lovers story is the best. They have their struggles and obstacles that they have to overcome... But Rex will do anything to protect Carolina and that will have you loving him too!

If you haven't read any of the Blue Beech series from Charity, I suggest you make it your next read. I love all her books.

If you enjoy audios, this audio book is done so well. I love the way the narrators brought one of my favorite couples to life!

Wonderful friends to lovers story!

"Just Friends" is a fun, sweet and steamy friends to lovers story that I enjoyed. Rex and Carolina have been best friends since high school when he tried to bribe her to write a paper for him. They instantly become friends when she calls him out on his antics.

I loved how the story line progressed and we see their friendship grows through the years. The constant back and forth of the "will they or won't they" was wonderful and one of my favorite things about the story. Rex is super protective of Carolina and will do anything to help her. He was truly the best friend a girl could ask for. When something from her past come backs to haunt her, he is the first one to help her. Seeing Carolina grow from a shy teenager to a confident woman was a treat. The ending was perfect. This is the 6th book in the series but can absolutely be read a stand-alone.

Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cook were amazing narrating Rex and Carolina. I'm never disappointed or bored whenever I listen to them.

Love!

I love tropey romance books! Rex and Carolina were the best of friends who happened to be hopelessly in love with each other. I thought the reasons they each had for not wanting to cross that line in their relationship made sense and were relatable. Rex has never had a good example of what a relationship should look like and Carolina felt like she could not compete with other women who threw themselves at Rex. She was just waiting for him to find someone who would take him from her. The obstacle that they faced was surprising, I definitely did not expect it.

Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cook were easy to listen to. I had no trouble understanding or hearing them speak. Overall it was a very pleasant listening experience.

Great listening

Wow.
Rex and Carolina's story was fantastic.
This story has me feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside—even after all the drama, lies and crazy angst.
Because it was also sweet, funny, slightly nuts and also sexy.
I LOVED IT.
Aaron and Samantha did a great job with narration.
