Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She’s spent six years pirouetting and pliéing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker -- Lily’s long time crush -- is finally single, she’ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice.

Reality with Blane isn’t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she’d always wanted.

West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more.

That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything.

I wasn’t as in love with this novel. I do think that “With a Twist” by Staci Hart was really good. West and Lily were a very sweet couple. It took a lot in me though not to yell at them to just admit their feelings. I think the story really took off once West and Lily could admit their true feelings to each other.

Hart writes this novel in order to draw her  reader into the story and the words just come to life on the page. This is such a sweet romantic novel. I love reading about two characters that are the best of friends and they fall in love. I think that is the way that love should be. Two best friends that fall in love and spend their lives together.

Lily ends up landing her dream guy Blane and well Blane is a jerk. That is speaking nicely. As Lily continues her hooking up with Blane, West starts becoming very protective of Lily. Blane only wants to hook up and Lily wants more.

As Blane and Lily becoming jealous of each other, it becomes so obvious that they are in love with each other. They just don’t realize it yet. I spent a good chunk of the story just wishing it would dawn on them. I really enjoyed West and Lily’s romance. I hope that many get to experience the romance they have. I am looking forward to Bad Habits book no. 2. Definitely check out this sweet romance because I think all will like it.
