Evelyn is a woman who has everything--a successful career as a TV producer, and her best friend—sexy firefighter Owen Hanson—who looks mighty fine as her plus-one to awards dinners and backyard picnics. But something is missing and it’s not just the sex.

Owen Hanson is living the dream—a Chicago firefighter who volunteers at a youth center on the Southside and he’s got his best friend Evelyn—who knows him better than anyone. When Evelyn starts hinting about wanting something more, Owen panics.

Sex changes everything but taking their relationship to the next level surpasses even their wildest dreams. Until Evelyn’s ex-husband shows up and could make even the most perfect couple crash and burn...


“The writing is great, funny at times and had me smiling. No dull parts, the characters were great. This is a great book if you just want to lose yourself in an engaging novel to escape life. It will make you smile and laugh and there are even a few parts that will tug at your heart. A wonderful read.” -The Butterfly Reader

The author does an excellent job of bringing out the human element. She shows that there is hope to start over later in life. The characters are smart and witty. They have fun while living their best life and are able to face the realities of a relationship.” -Suzette P., Goodreads

My Forever Plus-One is my first book by Shannyn Schroeder and I was enchanted from the start!” -Kristy B., Goodreads

“This is a great friend to lovers novel that will leave you with a good feeling and the need to come back for more.” -Jennifer L., Goodreads

“There was so much to love about this book, but the hands down best part is how FIERCE (!!) Evelyn is.  She rolls over for no one and I actually cheered out loud for her several times during this story and if I ever got to meet her, I'd be giving her a million-high fives.  She's so strong even when you would think the strongest would fall apart. I love this series and can't wait to see which one of this group gets their HEA next!!” -Laura F., Goodreads

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 10/17/19.

Finally--Owen and Evelyn's story!

I feel like I've been waiting forever for them to figure their way out to an HEA (okay, so it was just two books, but it *felt* like ages!) Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes, and Ms Schroeder does a fan...
