Never Just Friends Review

Never Just Friends is an MM Romance series by Saxon James

Just Friends is book one in the Never Just Friends series, a best friends to lovers MM romance with one bed trope. 

Roo and Tanner have been best friends since they were 11 years old. 
Roo refused to Australia at the end of their senior year for surgery. Their friendship took a hit over the years but now Roo is back. 
Tanner has always been straight, or so he thought.

Two best friends, one bed and a whole lot of history. 

This is definitely a fluff type of book. It’s a good read and has some great elements.


Fake Friends is book two in the Never Just Friends series.

Rowan and Circus have history. They were friends in high school until Rowan made the biggest mistake of his life. 
Now he’s returned to Sunbury to make amends. He’ll do anything for Circus to forgive him. 

This book is very second chance romance but unlike most this has more to the plot than just ‘they make up’. I really enjoyed the development of their friendship rekindling and Rowan learning to accept his sexuality. 

Also Alexander Cendese is always a favourite for audiobooks. Highly recommend giving the audiobook a listen. 


Getting Friendly is book three in the Never Just Friends series.

Leon is a workaholic and runs his own construction company. He’s snowed under with jobs as well as renovating his house. He needs help, so he hires an apprentice. 

Auggie is a sweet, energetic guy who wants to get out from under his fathers thumb. With a background in construction he applies to be Leon apprentice. Two problems he’s ridiculous clumsy and wants to climb his boss like a tree. 

This is a sweet and cute grumpy/sunshine trope, Leon has as tough outer shell and rarely lets anyone see beyond and Auggie is too cute!

There is some great banter and sassy retorts with a huge dash of adorable. It’s a great read. Enjoyed the audiobook, narration by Alexander Cendese (honestly he’s brilliant in everything I’ve listened to) and Kirt Graves.


Friendly Fire Review still to come
