Sunny Shelly’s Review: Our Way, by TL Swan


OUR WAY by TL Swan

Release Date: July 27, 2020

Cover Design: Hang Le

Model: Christian Hogue

Genre: Contemporary Romance



Nathan Mercer, the only man in my life.

Falling for him was never an option.

We met ten years ago, when we started at the same company on the same day.

With being new in town and nobody else to rely on, we quickly became friends.

And while Nathan went on to rule San Francisco, I’m still doing the same job with the same people.

We finish each other’s sentences, we spend Christmas together and he sleeps at my house more than his.

He’s beautiful…. beyond belief.

In another life, he’s probably my soul mate.
However, lately things have changed. He’s started looking at me differently.

His eyes drop to my lips as I speak.

His hugs are tighter…. longer.

Our fights are more passionate, his jealousy insane.

I know it’s all in my head….it has to be.

They say to never love someone who treats you like you’re ordinary.

I don’t, to him I’m a queen.

But our story is complicated.

And as much as I love Nathan Mercer with all of my heart.

He’s the one man I can never have.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

This book was not what I was expecting! I never suspected the reason why Nathan was so forbidden as a boyfriend for Eliza was the actual reason why they weren’t together.

Nathan struggles A LOT as he goes back and forth with his feelings for Eliza and whether to act on them. And there is a lot of hurt on both sides — unintended, but hurt nonetheless — as they try to navigate their situation. Is Nathan only using Eliza because he suddenly (unconsciously or not) realized that he wants a family? How did he just suddenly develop feelings for his best friend after 10 years? Is Eliza setting herself up for a lifetime of hurt and are her insecurities that he will return to his former life valid? Is Nathan right for feeling hurt that Eliza should be the one person to truly know his heart and he feels like she doesn’t?

This book was a lot to digest. But I was happy to see these two work out their issues and find a happy life.

What bugged me, however, was looking past the phrases and bits of dialog that are clearly not American by a non-American author setting a book in an American city. It’s always a pet peeve of mine.

But overall, Our Way is a winding story of twists and turns as best friends Eliza and Nathan try to figure out how to move from best friends and roommates to life partners. I received an advanced story and voluntarily left a review.
