REVIEW – Sooner or Gator by Mae Harden


“What do you need?”
That night was supposed to change everything… and it did. Just not in the way I had hoped.
I was there on the worst night of Harper’s life. The night her world came crashing down, bringing with it the crushing responsibility of raising her own sister when she was still practically a kid herself.
For seven years, I’ve been exactly what she asked for. I’ve been biding my time, but nothing stays the same—even on an island where it’s perpetually Christmas—and time is officially up.

“A friend.”
The love of my life sleeps ten feet away from me, just on the other side of that wall. He doesn’t know how I feel about him, of course.
That would just be crazy.
Jackson has always been my rock, which is exactly why he can never know how desperately I want him.
Sure, every grin he throws my direction sets off a storm surge down below and makes my heart race like sandpipers on the beach, but that’s not an excuse to blow up our carefully balanced lives… right?

Operation: Fail to Seduce Jackson And Prove Tizzy Wrong And Make Her Eat Her Own Words Once And For All is officially underway.


Jackson and Harper have been best friends for years and they almost had a moment, until Harper’s life was changed forever and Jackson was firmly planted in the friendzone. However, now time has passed can he move into something more?

There is obvious chemistry between Jackson and Harper that goes beyond friendship from the start. I loved their friendship, the bond, and the closeness they have. Even when lines are crossed and that foundation is there between them. It takes some time for these two to truly admit how they feel but when they do the sparks are flying and things heat up between them.

I loved the secondary characters in this book and they are just a great group of friends and family.

If you’re looking for a small town, friends to lovers novella check this one out.
