Release Blitz ~ #Review ~ Falling for her Brother’s Best Friend by Noelle Adams

Title: Falling for her Brother's Best Friend
Series: Tea for Two #1
Author: Noelle Adams
Genre: Contemporary Romance Novella
Release Date: June 7, 2017


After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she’s fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She’s going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.

And that includes her brother’s best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.

She doesn’t want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he’s not a nice guy anymore. He’s made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he’s looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn’t even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it’s been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend’s little sister.

Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn’t want Noah.

At all.

Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.

“No matter what you think, I’m not a little girl anymore.”

She had no idea why she was saying this. She was just rambling, too nervous to think through the words that were coming out of her mouth. And she was seriously having to hold herself back from reaching out toward him, taking hold of his shirt and pulling him closer.

He smelled so incredibly good. Not anything as strong as aftershave, but something warm and expensive.

She wanted to smell him even more.

She wanted to feel him.

She wanted to taste him.

She wanted to…

He reached out and tilted up her face so she was looking at him. “I know you’re not a little girl, Emma.”


He’d called her Emma.

“You do?” she whispered, the world shuddering in front of her eyes.

“Damn it, Emma,” he rasped thickly, raising his other arm so he was holding her face in both hands. “Surely you know I’m seeing you as anything but a little girl.”

She was trembling now, and there was absolutely no way she could hold herself back. He was holding her face like she was precious, and the look in his eyes…

So filled with heat and hunger. She’d never seen anything like it.

She grabbed onto his shirt like she’d always wanted to and drew him even nearer, and then he was finally, finally kissing her.

Naturally, she was kissing him back.

His mouth was hard, hungry, seeking, and he slid one of his hands down her back until it was cupped around her bottom, pressing her more snugly against him.

Part of her mind registered that he was already hard, and the knowledge whirled dizzily in her mind—the knowledge that she could have this kind of effect on his body.

Noah Hart’s body.

He stepped her backward until she was trapped between him and the railing of the front steps. They were on a public street. In front of her building. Anyone could see them. But the knowledge just made the whole thing even hotter, even more exciting.

She clutched at him eagerly, arching against him as his tongue delved deeper into her mouth, claiming her completely. The fingers of one hand were fisted in her hair now, and it felt possessive, thrillingly dominant.

She’d imagined herself in this position many times, but her dreams had never been like this. They’d been adolescent, foolishly romantic. Not hungry and carnal like this.



As if only each other could slake their desperate thirst.

4.5 stars

Emma and Noah have been connected for fifteen years. Three men formed friendships and their sisters, all about the same age became good friends as a result. Emma always had a crush on Noah, but never thought he noticed her, especially because of his nickname for her. After a lot of bad luck in the romance department, Emma is on a man-fast. She just has to remember that now that Noah is back in their hometown after seven years.
You could really see what Noah's childhood did to him. His father leaving did a number and that affected his relationships, and his desire to have them. He knew what he wanted but he was definitely afraid of going after it. The fear of becoming his father, and ruining the relationship he had with his best friend played a large part for him.
Oh my, if anyone had bad luck in love it was absolutely Emma. Maybe fate had a hand in that. It felt like that was fate's of keeping her available for Noah's return. I loved this girl and her crazy idea of the man-fast. No thinking of men, touching men, dating men for six months. Too bad Noah came home and consumed her mind!
I loved the story line, and the direction this series is headed. The whole group felt like family and the way it was written made you feel as though you were part of everything. The heat...or lord the heat was all consuming. There was no way they would be able to control themselves for long and stay hands off. It was a visible thing, drawing them close. Noelle Adams knows how to do romance right. The push and pull, the emotions, the roller coaster ride and all the feels. This is looking to be a promising series and I certainly can't wait to read more!
