Let It Ride (Thompson & Sons #3) by Vivian Arend



Reviewed by Tabatha


I’ve always loved a good friends to lover’s story, and Let it Ride was definitely a bittersweet one. Clay and Maggie have been friends for years, but family obligations have kept Clay from finding his own happiness until it was too late and Maggie got away. Fortunately she found a great guy in Cam, but tragedy strikes and Clay finds himself not only without his friend, but now having to take care of Maggie as well.

What I truly loved about this story was Maggie. She is a strong, independent heroine but she isn’t too afraid to ask for help either. She leans on Clay in her time of need, but also is willing to move on far faster than I think I would have ever been able to. She faced each day one day at a time, and tried her hardest to stay connected to her life despite her deep loss.

On the other hand, I think the conflict in the story was predictable and felt a tad bit forced. I can see why the father would have an issue, but the way he treated Clay after all that he has done for the family was terrible. He isn’t a very likeable character, and his turn around was far too quick for how vehement was about not accepting the relationship.

Overall, the book was sad but had some uplifting parts. You can definitely feel the heat and chemistry between Maggie and Clay, so I doubt you are going to feel like their relationship happens too fast. It was a sweet book with two sweet characters I promise you are going to love.

*I received a review copy from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.*
