A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. Can a decades-long friendship marred by two romantic missteps ever lead to happily ever after? Sadie McAllister’s clients know how lucky they are to have her: an ultra-fastidious personal chef who leaves behind a spotless kitchen and a week’s worth of mouth-watering meals. Erik Davis, her best friend since middle school, is content to enjoy Sadie’s culinary skills too while maintaining their “friends only” status. Most of his energy is focused on his just-launched freelance business and casual dates that never come close to a commitment. But when Sadie is offered a once-in-a-lifetime cooking job across country, Erik realizes maybe he’s taken his best friend for granted. Even more, he’s about to lose his only chance for lasting love. How can Erik convince Sadie that the well-known adage “Marry your best friend” just might apply to them? With God’s help, can they both move past their assumptions about each other and their future? Should Sadie and Erik risk taking their relationship to the romantic point of no return? If they do, their decades-long friendship is as a good as done . . . unless it ends at the altar.
Sadie McAllister loves her job as a personal chef. She has the hardest time trying to find any romance for her life. Sadie likes her best friend Erik but he is the kind of guy that will date other girls for about three months and then calls it quits on the relationship. She doesn’t want to be another girl marked off a list.
Erik has to learn to grow up. He loves his once a week meals with his best friend Sadie. When it becomes a possibility that Sadie may be moving away with her family, Erik realizes that Sadie means more to him then he would care to admit. Erik needs to learn that if he wants to keep Sadie then he will need to make a commitment to her.
Vogt did a great job with this novel. I thought she wrote wonderful characters that the reader was able to relate to and like. I think the novella was beautifully written. I enjoyed getting to know Sadie and Erik. I hope other readers do too.
