One mouthwatering temptation...

All Daisy Goldsmith wants is to get out of her small town, leaving behind the bullies who've taunted her. Attending culinary school in New York has always been her biggest dream---a dream she's not confident enough to pursue. After all, she's nothing but a "fat cow." But when her brother's best friend, the man who's always secretly held her heart, moves back to town after college, everything changes for Daisy.

One scrumptious nibble...

The Goldsmith house has always been Jon Roberts' sanctuary from the crazy of his life. With a broken and dysfunctional family, Jon embraces the Goldsmiths like his own. After getting a real glimpse of the woman Daisy's becoming, Jon is torn between his loyalty to the family and his desire for his best friend's little sister.

One delectable bite...

As Daisy and Jon spend more time together, they can't resist the attraction between them. Once they've had a taste, nothing can keep them apart--not their dreams, their families, or the difference in their age. Can someday turn into forever or will they bite off more than they can handle?

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Much like the first two books in Laura’s Not Yet series, I adored this one. The combination of brother’s best friend/little sister and friends with benefits tropes worked for me.

I adored Daisy and Jon. They were great, complex characters. Their chemistry was wonderful. It was painfully obvious to me that they belonged together and the friends with benefits thing wouldn’t stay that way for long. Sure, there were complications — mostly in the form of his relationship with her family — but when it’s real, you gotta fight for it. I got a little frustrated that they didn’t step up and say something to her family sooner, but I also more or less understood why. Jon used to be a player. There was always a chance that Daisy’s older brother and father wouldn’t be happy with her dating him. Thankfully, the way that it all went down provided very little angst. I do love the Goldsmith family. And Jon. *heart eyes*

I had lots of smiles and laughs — and a fair few feels — while reading Someday Soon. The romance was just so sweet and sexy and I loved the way both Jon and Daisy came into their own during this book. As a fan of the series from (nearly) the start, the Grace/Dean scenes towards the end that had me swooning all over the place — and, yes, crying. MAJOR FEELS. (Seriously, I get teary eyed just thinking about them again.) Fans of the Not Yet series will love this one as much as I did, I suspect. Laura’s delivered another amazing book!

FAVORITE QUOTES

“Daisy, you light me up inside. My body is in a constant and highly uncomfortable state of arousal around you. But your brother would murder me. Scratch that. All the males in your house would take pleasure in my long and painful death.” 

“Like you, the inside is even more beautiful. That’s where the heat is. The heat can melt through anything.” 

“Jon, I’m so embarrassed. I took advantage of your leg. I mean, how desperate can one girl be?” 

“Daisy, I loved you first as a friend, when you were too young to be anything else to me. But now, I know. The kind of love I feel for you is what I learned about from the people in this room.”
