I made a promise to always take care of her.
Aria Daniels is sweet, beautiful, and a little innocent. She’s also my best friend’s girl.
At least she was. Until tragedy took him from us all.
It’s been two years and she’s ready for a second chance at love. As one of her closest friends, I can’t let her date just anyone. Have you tried online dating? It’s harsh. Someone needs to make sure she doesn’t end up in the back of some serial killer’s white van.
I’m happy to do it. After all, a promise is a promise.
But getting Aria ready to find love again is proving more complicated than I expected.
Especially when my heart keeps trying to step in.
That can’t happen. She was his. She can never be mine.
And that promise I made… it never included falling in love.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Oh, what a sweet story! Dash is the first book that I’ve read by Shae Scott, and I am definitely going to be checking out her other books in this Berkshire Boys series!
When Aria’s fiancée Will died of cancer, she was crushed. They’d been together since they were teenagers, and just as they were planning their future together, it was ripped away from them. Although Aria wanted to wanted to wallow in her grief, Will’s best buds wouldn’t let her, and she eased into his place in their group.
Now, it’s two years later and Aria thinks she wants to dip her toe back in the dating pool. So Dash volunteers to help show naive, vulnerable Aria the ropes — and ends up falling in love with her in the process.
I really loved how well the guilt and pleasure was written in this story on both sides. Although Aria didn’t want to be alone any more, she felt like she was betraying Will by moving on… especially with his best friend. And Dash had very similar feelings as he began to see Aria as more than a friend. There is a really nice arc to this story as the two of them wade through their emotions and try to find their footing as a couple.
Dash is super sweet, so patient with Aria. He takes all of her broken pieces and puts them back together again. I loved the connection between these two and their story was perfection!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
