Review Graphic

This is the first book in the Bachelors of the Ridge series I’ve read, but I intend to read the others, and more of Karla Sorensen’s work, too.

Tristan has been so accustomed to loving Anna from afar, that now he realises she’s single and available, he’s unsure what route to take to make her realise the depth of his feelings for her without scaring her off.

Anna has been shut off from a lot of emotions during her marriage. The feelings she experiences around Tristan are new, and sort of frightening, but comfortable all at the same time. Are these feelings what great friendships are built on, or can there be more between them? Does Tristan even find her attractive enough to ask her out?

If I could rate this book higher, I would. It is such a beautiful story. Instead of a couple’s journey from heart-stopping chemistry & blinding lust to a deep, meaningful loving relationship, we get a completely unorthodox – yet no less moving – story.

I recommend this story. It is such a perfect example of true, unconditional, long-lasting love. Not many authors get it right, but this book? Karla Sorensen nails it down, 100/100.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

There’s one thing you should know about Tristan Whitfield: he’s been in love with Anna for years. 
There are two problems with that: she has no idea, and she’s married. Or at least, she was. 
Anna Callahan knows three things about her brother’s friend, Tristan: he’s quiet, incredibly handsome, and has a smolder that could set the room on fire. 
For years, it wasn’t difficult for Anna to overlook all of that. But when Tristan is the solution to a work problem that could derail her career, he is anything but easy to ignore.
To Tristan, the fact that the object of his affection is suddenly single means he should tread lightly. Be the friend she needs until she’s ready for more and hope the risk pays off.
Because it’ll add up to the one thing he wants: her.

“Tristan isn’t just angsty or emotional. It’s absolutely spellbinding. From the first word to the very last, I was hooked. An epic finale to one of my favorite romance series ever.” – Bestselling Author Kandi Steiner

“I devoured this book in one sitting. Karla hit every emotion imaginable. I got mad, I laughed, I cried, my heart ached, and by the end, it was filled with joy. Tristan’s story is the perfect ending to an incredible series.” – Author Kathryn Andrews


Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
