Friends to lovers is one of my very favorite tropes but Clam Jam puts a hell of a spin on it. This was my first RC Boldt book and I have to say…she won me over. This book was funny and sweet and had all the feels I need in a good book. I really loved all the characters,. not just the two leads, but their two best friends also. All of them had me laughing out loud at times especially Ry’s best friend Jack. I’m hoping he gets a book soon.
So, what makes any book in this trope work is a believable friendship between the two main characters and a believable reason they stay apart. This book hits both of those right on the mark. From page one I absolutely bought into the friendship between these characters, I loved it, I absorbed every detail of it. It was exactly what it needed to be. BUT…the reason they were apart worked just as well and I think that’s much harder for an author to pull off. I completely understood why Ry was doing what he was doing and why Maggie was struggling with her feelings. In the end, it made the payoff even better.
Definitely will be looking for more from this author.

the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a
nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.
