Summary:  As florist and co-owner of a successful Chicago wedding planning business, Daphne Lovell has been there for the happiest days of other people's lives. As for her own life? Well, it's hard to be perfectly happy when you're carrying a torch for your sexy, womanizing and oblivious best friend. So when the lights go out on New Year's Eve, she seizes the opportunity to kiss him senseless.

British expat Gibson Moore has a lot on his plate. The hotel he manages is being bought out, his family is crazy and someone just kissed him in the dark. When the lights go on, he searches the room, trying to find the mystery pair of lips. Only, he never thinks to ask the woman standing by his side. He's shocked when he discovers that Daphne is the woman he's been searching for. But Gib's also eager to act upon the attraction for her he's always fought to ignore.

It takes trust to move from friends to lovers, and as Gib's work situation worsens, he is no longer sure he can risk the friendship he relies on most. It's up to Daphne to convince him that some things are worth fighting for…

Review:  I received this novel from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy this novel as much as I did. This is the third novel in the Aisle Bound Series, but the second novel I've read by Christi Barth. This novel follows Daphne Lovell, a florist, and Gibson Moore. I was a little leery of their relationship because Gib can be quite the player. However, Christi ended up making this story work for them. Although it was a little hard for me to get into at first, I really enjoyed this novel!
