Calling Me: The Complete Series by Louise Bay
Is it possible for a guy to turn on a switch and realize he’s been in love with a girl that’s been under his nose for over a decade?
Ashleigh Franklin can’t decide.
Ashleigh wants the fairy tale. Ever since she was a kid, her best friend’s brother, Luke, has been her fantasy Prince Charming. Now he’s trying to convince her that she’s the one he’s wanted all these years. There’s no way it’s that easy to escape the friend zone.
Single after years living with a girlfriend, Luke has finally woken up. What he’s been waiting for has been right under his nose for almost his entire life. Can he persuade her that he’s serious and won’t break her heart?
A Wonder Woman costume, a bottle of tequila and a game of truth or dare between two close friends changes everything.
If you want a series that is romantic, realistic (but not too much), and engaging, Calling Me is it.
Ashleigh and Luke have been friends forever… almost as long as she’s been in love with him.
OMG, I love this theme
I will warn you, Ash gets a little annoying. she is so afraid, so down on herself and whether or not Luke’s feelings are real that it drove me nuts. But, I still rooted for her. I wanted it to work out so badly, that when the worst happened I was like “See! Stupid girl! You better fix this!” Which, is probably what the author wanted. I was invested.
Luke, on the other hand, is BBF magic. The transition me makes throughout the story endeared me to him and I became a #TeamLuke cheerleader. Big Time. He was never a bad guy, so that made it a little easier. He was just going with the status quo… something I think a lot of us do. “Why change it if it works?” He just didn’t realize it wasn’t working.
I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys this theme, it was really fun to read. 3.5 cups
I received an ecopy via NetGalley in exchange for a review.
