Men and women can be friends.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself since George walked into my life.

We bicker as much as we have each other’s backs.

We’re inseparable.

So, she left to find herself and I feel like I can’t breathe without her.

It’s okay, it’s only temporary.

But when she walks back into my life, it’s on the arm of a stranger.

Her fiancé.

Seriously, I just realized I’m in love with her and she’s engaged?I have six weeks to convince George we’re meant to be together—not only in the
kitchen or be forced to watch her marry another man.

Time is running out, and soon, she’ll be gone from my life.

I’m risking everything, will that be enough?

Someday, Somehow is a sexy romantic comedy that’s
equal parts funny and flirty. 
Made of Honor clashes with When Harry Met Sally in a
sweet and seductive love story of hopeful hearts and second chances.

Excerpt

EXCERPT

 

“A junior invited me,” Megan said excitedly. “It might be the party of the year.”

Party?

It looks like Union Square during New Year’s Eve.

What is everyone waiting for?

This party wasn’t worth the three-mile walk from our dorm to here.

The cheap alcohol tops it all. I didn’t get drunk with the first sip of a screwdriver; I got a massive headache. This isn’t for me. The circle of girls gossiping about everything as they wait to be swooped by some guy—not my scene.

Haven’t we done this for the past twelve hours? Chat about nonsense. This is why I don’t have many friends. I was too busy with my extracurricular activities that I skipped socializing 101. Give me a good book to read. A movie to watch or a marathon on TBS or Nick at Nite to keep me up all night.  I suggest we leave, and what does roommate-dearest say in response? “I’ll find you a place to crash.”

The bedroom is dark but clean. I grab a sweatshirt and even a bear I find on the floor. It only takes a few seconds for me to fall asleep. It is quiet, smells of sandalwood and pine, and the sheets are soft.

I miss home.

Everything is going well until the guy from the coffee shop wakes me up. I swear it feels like a dream. A nightmare. But after we talk, I realize he’s not as bad as I thought. He’s one of the good guys but likes to pretend he’s anything but.

His food…who knew eggs could taste this great? In exchange for yet another plate, I could offer to fix the light fixtures. This place is off code.

And there I go, thinking like my father. Instead of teaching me construction, he should’ve taught me how to socialize. I wish my aunts had been around more often during my teenage years. I’d be a little cooler, or at least I’d know how to make friends easily.

Auggie takes the empty plate from my hands and offers me some milk. I nod, that sounds better than whatever they’re serving upstairs.

“It must be hard moving away from all your friends and family,” he says.

I shrug and smile. I don’t make friends easily. Well, actually, I don’t make friends at all. Dad and I have always been on the run. Running to school, running to a construction site, running to tae kwon do, running to the grocery store…

There’s never time to exchange more than a greeting and a weak how are you before I have to go again.

During my spare time I help Dad around the house or at work. If I do the latter, it pays for my knickknacks, and I get to spend time with him.

“It’s just Dad and me,” I remind him.

“Any other family?”

“Mom’s family faded away after she died. Dad’s sisters stepped up, but now they have their own families, so during my teenage years it was just the two of us.” I drink some of the milk he poured me.

“Grandparents?”

“How about you?” I fire back without answering his question. And study him.

He’s not as bad as I thought earlier. In fact, he’s very nice. And good looking. Tall, mussed-up, dark hair, hazel eyes. Black t-shirt hugging his lean and defined muscles. There’s a playful tug at the corner of his mouth, and I see a dimple forming on the left side of his cheek.

He turns me on, but he’s he and well, I’m me.

5Star
Michel’s Review
     Claudia Burgoa has fallen under a special magical star that has transformed her already excellent writing talent to a whole new level.  Her last few books have been romantic perfection.
***
.
     I absolutely loved Someday Somehow because I could easily identify with both Georgie and Auggie on some many levels.  We all have that special friend that means more than words could describe. This special kind of friendship is a safety zone where anything can be said or done without judgement and complete support.
***
     Auggie and Georgie met in college and decided they needed a best friend rather than a one night stand or coed fling. This friendship survived attempted dating endeavors, the pressures of academic success, the floundering of finding the right kind of career that will fit for years, family expectations, and dreams for the future. The one thing they took for granted was each other until it was almost too late.  They both realized their love for one another at the wrong times and neither knew how to express the real feelings in their heart. It will take a sabbatical in Europe, an abrupt career change, a creative culinary challenge, and complete focus before they find their happily ever after.
***
     Claudia Burgoa captured the perfect friendship floundering to find true love. She brought her characters, both Georgia and Auggie to life through their passions in cooking. They expressed themselves by creating the perfect dish for every emotional moment. Love is hard enough to express with words but even harder when it could ruin the perfect friendship.  They both had to recognize their own personal weakness and learn to deal with them by themselves. They had to fix themselves first.
***
Claudia Burgoa created my favorite kind of romance with friendship to lovers theme. I loved every aspect of Someday Somehow.
