Flirting With Forever by Kendall Ryan Review



I’ve waited years for the perfect girl, yet she was right in front of me all along.

My best friend, Natalie, has been by my side through everything. Leaning on my shoulder, borrowing my sweatshirts…and making my pants too tight when she flashes me that sassy smile that drives me crazy.

But she has no idea about that last part. She doesn’t have a clue I’ve felt this way about her for years.

Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together.

I’m flirting with my forever…she just doesn’t know it yet.

This book is a sexy, slow-burning best-friends-to-lovers romance with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating. Dive in, and get ready to melt for Cam!


I adore a good best-friends-to-lovers story and Kendall Ryan’s Flirting With Forever was a great one. Ryan’s writing always entertains me, especially when it’s one of her sexy and sweet contemporary romances. The way that she blends her charming plots with a steamy romance between two characters I’m rooting for never fails to produce a story that I easily fall into. Kendall Ryan’s contemporary romances are light-hearted pleasures to read, and thankfully, she’s given her readers many of them to enjoy this year.

Cam and Natalie’s easy-going, comfortable friendship was genuine and real, and whether it was as friends or a couple, I loved them together. After so many years as best friends, these two were very much in-sync and knew each other well. It was obvious how much they cared for one another, but somewhere along the way, their feelings started to change. By telling Natalie and Cam’s story in both of their points-of-view, Kendall really helps the reader to connect with these characters by bringing them into their thoughts. Once they each realized their feelings for the other had shifted, it was like the chemistry between them exploded and the flood gates of emotion opened wide. I absolutely loved the delicious, slow-burn build up between them, and I definitely appreciated how Ryan drew that out by not rushing things between them. Once they crossed that line, however, there was no going back for either one of them, and I was right there with them in this heart-soaring romance. It wasn’t all smooth sailing, though, and Ryan interjected just enough conflict to keep things interesting without drowning this budding romance in drama.

Flirting With Forever was a charming love story that I was fully invested in and kept a smile on my face as I devoured it in a single sitting. I happily and easily got lost in this sweet romance, and these kinds of fun, easy-reading and sexy stories are what I love most from Kendall Ryan. Flirting With Forever by Kendall Ryan gets 4.5 smooches from me!
