A country boy looking to win his best friend’s heart. A waitress afraid of giving hers away. And one crazy, impromptu dating plan that’s about to change everything.

Ex-model Livy Hensley has exactly three talents: making coffee, landing herself in the most awkward moments known to man, and failing miserably at relationships. But when the sweetest southern boy on the planet offers to be your dating coach, who could say no? Between struggling to open a café and trying to atone for a consequence of her past, Livy can use all the help she can get. Besides, what could possibly go wrong on a few practice dates with your best friend?

Chase Thompson’s no stranger to hard work. If that’s what it takes to prove to Livy they should be together, then he’s all in. He can handle pretending he’s not hopelessly in love with her. Sort of. Almost.
Okay, nowhere close. But with a conflicting solution to his family’s greatest trial on the line, the stakes of keeping his dating coach plan from backfiring have never been higher.

Up against the countdown of choices, Chase and Livy must find the courage to risk what they fear most for the someday they’ve always hoped for.

My Review: 5 Stars
Friends-to-lovers is always a favorite story line, especially when the characters are as scrumptious as sweet tea--and Chase and Livy are. Livy has an embarrassing quirk of seeing how far she can stick her foot in her mouth, but her heart is gold and her intentions are good. I couldn't believe how much I laughed at her expense, especially with her animal encounters. Chase is as true-blue loyal as they come and his family values seals the deal. I don't know how Livy could withstand his country charms, because I, for one, was completely smitten.
Pasts and secrets can be messy, but nothing that a little time and love can't cure. I loved that these characters had challenges to overcome, yet the solid simplicity of friendship and the smoldering tension of unrecognized feelings helped conquer these issues. I couldn't get enough of the swoon! 
The messages of being worth something and aligning priorities really illuminated the story, and evoke such heartwarming feelings. I've loved this series and this one just might be my favorite so far.
Content: mild, swoony romance (kissing, past intimacies and resulting consequences, some harassment); very mild religious elements
