Four days before Valentine’s Day, Liese Hansfeld is determined to shut the door to her house, as well as her heart, for her annual four days of mourning her one true love. Little does she know her best friend Freytag Meier is just as determined to keep her from her ritual. He’s ready to pick the lock to her apartment door and camp in her living room if that’s what it takes.

What Freytag isn’t prepared for is the surge of deep-rooted emotions he feels for Liese, but two things stand in his way: the grief and guilt she still clutches close to her heart, and a man who threatens to snatch Liese from under Frey’s watchful eye. Frey is determined to distract her into forgetting her pain. But is that enough to ease her grief, or help her see he can be more than her best friend?
My Thoughts.
Having read and loved Cecilia's book Reaper's Novice (curently only 99 cents, trust me it's money well spent, go and buy it now) I was eager to read this and see if Cecilia writes contemporary romance as well as she does paranormal and I'm happy to say that she does!
I love this kind of a story, the best-friend who's secretly in love with their best-friend whom is completely oblivious to other friends feelings and this is true of Freytag (Frey) who is in love with Liese who has been in mourning these past two years and she shuts herself away four days of the year around Valentine's Day, we don't really find out into later on in the story who Liese is mourning but the name Bastian keeps being brought up, and while there are clues scattered throughout the story I did figure out what had happened before it was revealed at the end but that's alright it was still written in such a way that was still emotional and made an impact on the storyline when you realise what Liese has been through.

This year Frey has decided that enough's enough and he is going to camp out in her living room and try to get her out her funk by keeping her busy whilst secretly hoping that she may feel the same way he feels about her, and so through dancing and skiing and the interest of a boy named Ben whom Liese has dated once or twice and Frey's ex Carmen, can these two best-friends find their way to each other, and can Liese let go of the grief and guilt she's been carrying around with her for far too long?

I loved this book but Reaper's Novice is still up there in terms of my favourite Cecilia Robert's story, if you love contemporary romance/new adult books then definitely consider picking this one up.

I give this 4/5 Stars.

A Big Thanks To Cecilia For The Review Copy.
