Five guys. One bar. And a whole heap of sexy trouble…
Sawyer Landry is sexy, rugged, charming… and did I mention sexy? Back in college, we were best of friends – which meant I secretly hid an epic unrequited crush, while he dated every other girl on campus… and then told me all about it the morning after.
Now I’m back in Chicago for the first time in years, and Sawyer is determined to rekindle our friendship. I swore, I wouldn’t put my life (and heart) on hold for him again, but just one look at his handsome face and I know, he’s still the only man for me.
But this time, things are going to be different. No more sitting around, waiting for him to realize his dream woman is right in front of him. No, I’m going to make him see, I’m not just one of the guys anymore.
But can I really go from sidekick to soulmate? And will this playboy bachelor realize, true love is waiting – if he’d only take a chance?
A Guy Who Doesn’t Do Relationships or Love.
A Girl Who Feels More Than Friendly Feelings for Said Guy.
And One Overwhelming Case of Unrequited Love.
This is the situation that Katie McCoy presents readers with in her newest release, Soulmate; this is Sawyer and Gabi’s story and out of all of the couples that McCoy has introduced readers to in her Rascals series, I have to say that these two frustrated me so much more than any of the others, partly due to Sawyer’s apparent obliviousness of Gabi’s feelings for him but mostly because some of Gabi’s antics didn’t sit too well me, which made it difficult to connect with her and see the possibility of them rebuilding a friendship that was lost when Gabi ghosted Sawyer let alone something romantic developing between them.
I get why Gabi left her life and her friendship with Sawyer; for her own sanity, she needed a fresh start after repeatedly witnessing Sawyer’s manwhoring ways. But Gabi’s thought process when she returns is quite skewed, especially when she thinks that she can change Sawyer’s mind about commitment by becoming his friends with benefits’ bedmate.
Sawyer’s reasons for not wanting a committed relationship seemed a bit too surface level and the fact that he didn’t learn from his mistakes the first time didn’t make me feel confident that he could make things right after he messes up yet again.
Despite my issues with the main characters, though, the story line is well paced and it provides the necessary insights into Gabi and Sawyer’s shared past. It also quite clear that their connection is deeper than Sawyer’s willing to admit, so it didn’t surprise me that he had to lose Gabi all over again before he went about claiming the one woman who has always been his…his friend…his lover…his soulmate.
