He was the one.
From the first moment I saw him, I knew.
I had never been more certain of anything in my sixteen years on this earth.But Alec didn’t notice me. At least not in the way that I wanted him to.
He noticed my best friend instead.
I stood by and watched their relationship blossom.
An outsider looking in, wishing things were different.
Torn between my loyalty to my best friend and the boy who had unknowingly
stolen my heart.
Weighted by feelings I could never express out loud, I wrote them all down.
Every thought. Every feeling.
I poured them all into a letter.
A letter he was never meant to read.
Only that’s exactly what he did.
He read it.
Every single word.
But by then it was too late.
Even if he was no longer dating my best friend.
Even if I was more in love with him than ever.
He was leaving.
I was leaving.
And there was nothing either of us could do to change it.
Alec Murray was my almost fairytale.
The happy ending I swore I’d never get.
But our story is far from over…
Adult and Contemporary Romance. She is a lover of books and enjoys nothing more
than losing herself in a good novel. She has a soft spot for Romance and
focuses her writing in that direction; writing what she loves to read.
where she writes full time.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this friends to lovers, sweet love story!!! Melissa Toppen never disappoints. She always makes me fall head over heels in love with not only her characters, but the whole story. She is my go to author and one that I know is an automatic one-click. Almost Never was everything that I’ve come to expect from this amazing author. From the very beginning of Hope and Alec’s story I was hooked. Their journey is a slow one and one that even at times seems like will never happen. I got frustrated with them at times, but their journey was so worth the ride. Almost Never is now added to my favorites list of books written by this amazing author. If you have not read anything by this author yet…you my friend are missing out. I highly recommend any of her books.
Happy Reading Everyone!!!
