Barbie Bohrman
Releasing April 26th, 2016
Montlake Romance

Katy Lewis
has it all: a sports reporting job she loves, a great roommate, and two
brothers who, while nosy, always have her back. But when Conner Roberts, Katy’s
unrequited first crush, suddenly shows up—and shows interest—after nine years,
she reverts to a sweaty, panicked sixteen-year-old once more.

And if trying to read Conner’s
signals isn’t tough enough, Katy’s heart is sending some mixed messages of its
own. When a beautiful blonde coworker starts pursuing Katy’s boss, Dylan
Sterling—her longtime mentor and friend—she realizes she may have a problem
with that. A reunion with Conner is what she’s dreamed of for so long…so why
can’t she stop thinking about Dylan?

For the first time ever, Katy must
fact-check her heart. Should she go after the guy she thought she always wanted
or see if there’s something more with the one who’s been there all along?


4 stars!

Something More Than This is a friends to lovers story. I love couples that start as friends first. They make my heart happy. Once again, Barbie brings us a light, sweet and funny story. This had a little angst and some steam, but overall was a feel good read!

Katy Lewis has a job she absolutely loves as a sports reporter for her local paper. She lives with her best friend, Mimi- who is a hoot, and has two older brothers who love her fiercely. Her editor and boss, Dylan Sterling is also a very close friend and has been for years. She is content with life. Then her childhood best friend, Conner comes back into the picture and wants to meet up with Katy.

Katy had feelings for Conner growing up. It’s safe to say, he was her first love. She’s not sure if seeing him for the first time in years will bring those feelings back. Meanwhile, in the office, Rachel is making a move for Dylan and it’s bringing other feelings for Katy. Jealously. She is jealous of Rachel. Dylan has always been a good friend to her, but there are other feelings there too. This is a bit of a stressful situation for Katy. Does she go for Conner? He’s here, it seems he’s interested… but there is Dylan who has always been there for her and seems to have had feelings for her too… I know it seems like this is a love triangle, but it really didn’t feel that way to me. And the guy I was rooting for actually got the girl for once so go me!
I want him. I want us. And I’m willing to face my fears to make it happen.

I thought Katy was a fantastic heroine and I really liked both of the guys in the story. Her man is super sweet and swoony and the one sex scene we got between them showed that their chemistry was off the charts! Honestly, this was a great read for me and I feel like it could have been an amazing 5-star read for me if there was more romance and we got more time with the couple together at the end! I was jonesing for more of their story.

If you’re looking for a sweet and enjoyable read that’s a friends to lovers story this is one I’d recommend! I’m hoping Barbie will give us a book about either one of Katy’s brothers!

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Barbie
 dreamed of becoming an author. Long after she had given up, a
book club’s prologue contest encouraged her to give it one more go. What
emerged were the beginnings of her debut novel, Promise Me. Now she’s living
her dream and writing stories that entice readers to escape and break away from
reality. When she’s not writing, you can find her trying to get through the
books on her Kindle (more than a thousand at last count) or watching Sherlock or Homeland.
She resides in New Jersey with her husband and two children.
