Friends to lovers romance
6 October 2019
Call Her Mine was a best friends to lovers, plus a surprise baby romance. Ben and Aurelia have been best friends for YEARS, both obviously in love with the other. Everyone in the small town - family and friends, can see the love and adoration they have for each other, except of course for Ben and Aurelia.
Poor Aurelia, she's so tired of being in the friend zone that she decides to make some major changes and moves to the next town over to put some space between her and Ben. Just after she starts to get settled, a surprise baby from one of Ben's one night stands gets left on his doorstep. SURPRISE!!!!!
Basically a lack of communication between these 2 adults kept them apart. Neither had the courage to tell the other how they really felt. Ben's off sleeping with other ladies to help him deal with what he thinks is his unrequited love for Aurelia, while Aurelia is hurting because of this. While they are both single adults and free to follow their own interests, I do find this type of scenario a little *eye roll* worthy.
I did enjoy the humour that popped up at times throughout the story. Ben's sisters were hilarious, especially his sister Piper. I don't know if she has a book yet, but I want to read it. Bea and the audiobook scene was also really cute. Ben and Aurelia's HEA was a long time coming, but at least they finally figured it out.
