Brina and Eagan meet for the first time when she's nine and he's fourteen. They like each other from the very beginning, although their bond isn't immediate, but it grows over the years. What links them is the fact that their parents are photographers and are extremely devoted to their work and to each other; so much so that both Brina and Eagan have to learn how to take care of themselves from a very young age. Despite their differences, age, gender, nationality, Brina is Italian and Eagan is American, they find comfort in their growing friendship. Then Brina becomes a teenager, and her feelings for her friend start changing and deepening. New desires stir within her. As soon as Brina realizes how those feelings complicate her friendship with Eagan, she runs away from him. A few years later, Brina is twenty and Eagan is twenty-five, they find one another once again. Brina is studying cinema in Rome and she's also trying to become a musician. Eagan begins to work as an architect in the same city. Eagan wants to be a part of Brina's life anew. Brina, however, is still in love with him; she finds it difficult to act merely as a friend and she keeps pulling away. Set in the beautiful Rome, this is a sensual and romantic story of friendship and love. (Recommended for ages 17+, due to sexual content and language) Genres: Contemporary Romance, New Adult.

My Thoughts

Friends to Lovers!

This is a sweet love story that will send you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The characters are very relatable and the exotic locations will take your breath away. I loved getting caught up in the romance between these two and feel that it was even more special because of their friendship.

Eagan is a great hero who has a lot in common with Brina. I could really tell he cared a lot for Brina even in the beginning. I really enjoyed getting to know more about him and seeing his friendship with Brina blossom into something much more.

Brina is a sweet woman and I could really relate to her, but I was also practically shouting for her to confess to Eagan. Even so the tension made it that much more exciting. 

You won’t want to miss the memorable love story!


  1. I love friends to lovers stories. This sounds like a good one.
