Rules of Friendship by C.A. Harms

Rules of Friendship
by: C.A. Harms
Genre: A Friends-To-Lovers Standalone Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2018


As a guy, the number one rule to being best friends with a girl should be simple…

Never, and I do mean never, fall in love with her.

Oh and you should never fantasize about her either.

Believe me, that situation can get messy really fast and leave you with nothing but one hell of an awkward mess on your hands—literally.

Reese and I have been through everything together; our bond is deep. But I am going down fast, and I fear there is no way to stop it. I spend most of my time hiding my body’s reaction to her because like I said: just friends.

But things are changing. We are changing.

I no longer see her as just Reese, my best friend. When I look at her now, I see a gorgeous woman that takes my breath away. I see my future. But what if she doesn’t see me the same way?

I can’t risk losing her…

The fear of screwing everything up is excruciating. So that’s why I have chosen to stick to the rules. The Rules of Friendship that is.

She was off limits. Plain and simple.

But then in she walks wearing her tiny shorts and those tight tops. Come on, a guy can only have so much restraint before he caves…


Rules of Friendship was really really great!

I had such a good time hanging out with these 2 as they go from besties to something else entirely.  It was funny, witty, sometimes cringey (not in a bad way) but overall a really fun read.

I read it in one go and could not put it down until I was done.

I really enjoyed the perspective and premise of the story, and as I was thinking about it, this is not a very recurring theme in the genre. I could be mistaken, but I have not seen many of the besties to more tropes in my most recent discoveries.

So for me this was a true welcome change.

Dawson and Reece were truly lovely characters, but I have to tell you that there are time when one or the other .. even both got a little bit on my nerves.

There is nothing wrong with that, no one is perfect… even though fiction tends to make us forget that more often than not.

To be honest, I was a bit more annoyed with Reece than with Dawson, but as you read the book, I am curious to know if you think that maybe I was too harsh on her.  I really would love to hear your opinions!

Rules of Friendship is truly refreshing and entertaining and I would highly recommend it, if you are are in the mood for a light fun read.

I really hope you love it as much as I did.
