Emma Wyatt has had enough of her ex-best friend and his ladykiller ways. The sweet boy from her youth had been replaced with a serial womaniser.

Oliver didn’t intend to be coupled with Emma, but when it came to Emma Wyatt, he felt the need to be a knight in shining armor.
Now, the whole town knows and Emma is livid. She wants to wring his neck.

A heated argument incites a fiery moment of passion, and the pair find themselves fighting an unlikely attraction they never saw coming.

But a dreadful secret could tear them apart forever.

Two things, it seems, are what I can never get tired of. Small towns and men in uniform. And men in uniform who live in small towns and charm the socks off all ladies? Yes, please times twenty.

I realize lately I keep breaking my own rule of reading series in order. IT HAD TO BE YOU was the second book in Crystal Valley series, and it tells the story of two childhood friends who drifted apart but found their way back to each other through one simple lie to save face that turned out to be what the whole town-and they themselves- had been waiting for.

Did I ever tell how much I love friends to lovers stories? Yeah. Even though the beginning of the story suggests irritation between Emma and Oliver, things are much hotter and buried a bit deeper than they appear. Two characters I liked immediately, in situations I laughed out loud, having to put up with annoying but adorable family members i.e grown up children cousins, I enjoyed Emma and Oliver’s story immensely. 

I’d love to be back to Crystal Valley for sure. I’ll be looking forward to the next story because I think the bachelors of Crystal Valley are not extinct yet, but in any case I know I’ll be back to read the previous book. 

I’m adding four spoonfuls of this lovely and sexy story into my hodgepodge, and making plans on how to snag myself a man in uniform without all the hassle of getting arrested for real. Handcuffs are always welcome though.
