Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?

Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I've roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.
There's only one problem--I'm falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder. 

My notes were supposed to be a one time thing.

A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter's night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.
Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.
She's the girl next door.
He's my secret pen pal.
Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked...

When we first learn about Berk and Jules in The Second We Met, I was just dieing for their story in The Third Best Thing. I had no idea how their story was going to go , but it was pretty satisfying.

I just loved the idea of how their friendship/relationship started, but I was soo curious to see how things would unfold. And what the reactions were going to be. Even if Berk was set on trying to find TLG, his friendship with Jules was just growing the more they hung out together.

The one thing I was hoping more of was just figuring out the truth behind TLG, there was quite a bit of build up from the previous book to this one. So once the truth comes out, it was a bit of a plateau for me. But besides that, I truly loved everything about this one.

Berk and Jules were absolutely adorable together, I liked that the more they got to know each other, walls were coming down. And all the wait was well worth it and super hot, might I add.

This was definitely a great addition to the series and you can bet I’m looking forward to the next one!

major thank you to the author for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.
