Pleasurable read! Once again, Ms.Pyland takes a catchy title that seems from the outset to be, at the very least, somewhat mundane but because of her impressive skill at telling a story --- especially one that involves art and many and I mean many gorgeous sex scenes --- shines through from the very first page. 'LOVE FORGED's premise is driven by three different storylines with each chronicling everything pertaining to Tate and her sidekick Flynn -- from being abandoned by her father as a child, her insecurities as a teenager to womanhood then overcoming her self-doubts to her growth as a confident woman. Because of Tate's father's profession, many parts of the storytelling appears to read like a chronology of art history while other parts dealt with both Tate & Flynn's relationship:- finding their footing as to who they really were, coming to grips with their growing feelings for each other and their future. Despite the slow pace and a few too many tedious intervals of all their daily routines along with Tate's unsure thoughts and Flynn's anger, 'LOVE FORGED' still ended up being a cheeky and interesting story that deserves to be enjoyed by other readers. Recommended!

    Best-friends-to-lovers on an art adventure. I'm on the fence about this one. It’s a best friends-to-lovers, toaster-oven romance where Tate devotes time to figure out herself, her sexuality and feelings for Flynn. Pyland doesn’t let the lack of communication go too far so I thought that the romance was fine, at least until the second half when it turns into a steamy erotica. The sex was a lot and I was bewildered because it just felt like an entirely different book, though a few of those sessions Best-friends-to-lovers on an art adventure.

Well, Pyland does caution that this book would be different and it wouldn't be for everybody. The other storyline involves Tate’s father, his involvement in the art scene and the adventure Tate and Flynn take in a bid to find out more about his life. It turned out to be a sweet little vacation that also gave the women time to find out more about each other. Personally I think that the free and easy adventure was carried out with some naivety of twenty-two year olds placing that much trust in an absent father. In the real world, the art sector is attractive to money launderers and this is often tied to predicate offences that are much more illicit and syndicated. Honestly, what they did on their own was plain silly and dangerous and in a more likely outcome, they would never have made it home. Just saying. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

It’s been a while since I got all the feels from an adult romance book that I had almost stopped reading the genre altogether. While Love Forged isn’t perfect and even contained some of my personal gripes (such as the POV withholding information), it still made me feel very satisfied and happy, which is exactly what I need at this very moment. Tate Antonio (22, half-Italian) and Flynn McEntire (22, half-Cuban, half-Irish) have been best friends since forever. During the last semester before they start medical school, Tate receives posthumous letters and an extravagant amount of money from her long estranged father. Curious to know more about what he had been doing as an artist over the past decade, Tate and Flynn embark on a luxurious transcontinental trip in the summer to see his works and meet with his friends. But Tate has no idea what else she will learn on this journey. Traveling! Art! Awful American tourists in Europe! Because of the pandemic (I’m writing this in Mar 2021), I haven’t been able to visit anywhere for a long time and I miss that a lot. Through Love Forged, I am glad to get glimpses of Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, New York, and even just hotel rooms. It was fun to see Tate and Flynn do mundane activities in different cities and be excited tourists. Pyland always had a knack of making me feel things. I don’t think I’ve ever read any of her works (this is my 13th Pyland novel/novella) without experiencing warm flutters as the main characters interact, oftentimes not even in a romantic sense. That’s the very reason I will read anything she writes, and of course, Love Forged was no exception. The story is told through Tate’s 3rd-person POV. Since both Tate and Flynn are figuring out their sexualities, single POV worked really well as we get to focus on one confused party instead of head-hopping between two uncertain characters. I have a soft spot for stories about adults realizing they’re not straight after all as well as best friends becoming lovers. The way Pyland writes Tate’s thoughts made me so emotional; I couldn’t figure out why tears welled up in my eyes (perhaps the half a glass of wine I had helped). Even the slightest touch between Tate and Flynn, their mutual support, and how happy they are when they see each other in joy, made my heart ache. Also, I love coming out stories when it’s centered on the self-realization and feeling of how everything finally fits instead of queerphobia. Here, while there are still a bit of concern over potentially homophobic family, the story is mainly about Tate and Flynn finding their new dynamics with each other and discovering more about themselves. I don’t always enjoy intimate scenes. When I cannot feel enough connection between the characters, sex scenes make me fall asleep—literally. But not in this case. The latter half of the book was mostly sex and I didn’t feel like there was too much, which is very unusual for me. I think all the scenes add character to both Tate and Flynn and I loved that they were having fun in bedrooms and, ahem, in public. Some five Pyland books ago, I didn’t see any POC in the ones I’ve read, and I am very happy that there have been two since. I also liked how Tate was portrayed as someone who struggles with reading social cues and expressions. There was a passing commentary on the stereotypes of butch- and femme-presenting people in lesbian bars that I appreciated—one of the reasons I find going into one extremely intimidating. Sure, there were some plots and conversations that didn’t feel very plausible. And while I love that the 90%-conflicts in Pyland’s works were almost never miscommunications but some other external threats on the relationships, the one in Love Forged was kind of a shock to me. But none of these hinder my overall enjoyment of their relationship development, and I’ve reread some of my favorite scenes already since finishing the book earlier this morning. Thank you, Nicole, for bringing me out of a romance slump yet again. I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ve actually read a friends to lovers romance, so I can’t speak completely to it’s originality but it felt fresh and authentic to me. Tate and Flynn are best friends.

I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ve actually read a friends to lovers romance, so I can’t speak completely to it’s originality but it felt fresh and authentic to me. Tate and Flynn are best friends. They grew up together, have done almost everything together in their lives, and are now embarking on their next journey together - med school. Unexpectedly Tate receives a letter out of the blue, that turns both of their lives upside down. I don’t read the blurbs on Pyland books, I just look forward to them when they’re released, so this narrative came as a complete surprise to me. The title doesn’t give away much (though now I’ve read it, the title is perfect), and I definitely wasn’t expecting such a warm, thoughtful book. It was a pleasure to settle in for a few hours and get lost in this blossoming friends to lovers romance. Whilst at its heart it’s a friends to lovers romance, it also deals with grief, loss, family and the characters finding themselves. Best of all for me, there was no crazy conflict between the two. Other than some initial communication breakdowns that felt very authentic in the world of trying to tell your best friend that you’re gay, the conflict in this purely relates to outside sources and provides a great narrative to show the couple growing together. i’m deliberately keeping this review shorter than normal. I don’t want to give away anything else that happens and want people to be able to enjoy for themselves. If you haven’t read Pyland before, I would highly recommend starting here. If you have, you should definitely enjoy this one too. I received an e-ARC directly from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    The premise of this novel is quite ingenious. I cannot remember reading a novel with this storyline. Cudo’s to Nicole Pyland for giving the friends to lovers romance a a new face. If you are a fan of Ms Pyland’s novels you are aware of her consistency in giving us “want to read” love stories. In Love Forged you find a beautiful balance of all her writing strengths. This is a definite 4.5 ⭐️

    This is a slight change from Nicole’s series books. It tells the story of two best friends Tate and Flynn discovering how their relationship is changing. Tate is also learning about her father that she hasn’t seen in years. These young women are so very sweet as they go on a journey of a lifetime before they start medical school. I must say that this is one of the hottest stories I’ve read by Nicole. The scene in a NYC lesbian nightclub was so very sexy.

    I read two of Nicole Pylands romances before and liked both well, but this one was a disappointment. Mind you it is well written, just like the others, but here I think the unusual plot and parrallel slow burn romance suffer greatly under the for me excessive sex scenes. [Spoiler] While fatastic sex the first night together is quite likely for two experienced lesbians falling in love, I find the concept of two vigins (in terms of lesbian sex) embarking on a shitload of borderline kinky sex the mo I read two of Nicole Pylands romances before and liked both well, but this one was a disappointment.

That at least was satisfying but again not entirely credible. Maybe my expectations were too high, maybe this is just a blip, but the fact that the book disappointed me remains.

    Another Amazing story Nicole Pyland writes another amazing story that you will not want to miss. In this book, sending Tate and Flynn on an adventure finds more answers than Tate ever expected. As with all of Nicole Pyland books, the chemistry is outstanding and the connection between the characters is bonded tight. It has very little angst. This will be in my piles to be reread again and again.

You just found out you both got into med-school and you’re both about to have a lot more stress on your plate, trying to get through med-school and work jobs to pay for school and your shared apartment. Then one day you get a mysterious letter that changes everything. What would you do?

    I personally felt this was completely different then anything the author has ever written. The characters are 22 (almost 23) years old. I don’t know about you, but I was not grown up and rational at 22, even if I was technically an adult. And the two main characters, Tate & Flynn, were written exactly how I would imagine two 22 year olds with millions of dollars and a mystery at their disposal should be. Tate was clueless and Flynn expected her to just KNOW, even though that logic fails. I enjoy I personally felt this was completely different then anything the author has ever written.

I enjoyed both Tate and Flynn’s personalities, though I was surprised to find that it was only written from Tate’s point of view. However, I do think they caught the hang of being gay and into a relationship from a friendship a little quickly. But, in the end I liked it. Even the sex was good enough on the page to be a turn on off the page ;) I’m still getting a hang of reviewing books, and I end up feeling all warm and fuzzy over most of them but I’m just being honest. (Insert shrug emoji here 🤷🏻‍♂️) And I will probably be buying the hard copy when it comes out.

    I've always enjoyed a book by Nicole Pyland. This story, Tate & Flynn's story, was beautiful. The best part was the ending at a family dinner after their summer trip. I can't go into a lot of detail without spoiling the story. Tate & Flynn travel, following clues from her father's letter and during the trip come to terms with their emotions towards each other.

    3.5 stars from me. It was jarring how fast some things moved along. Also I rolled my eyes a lot, and I like to think I'm pretty good at suspending belief in lezfic. Not their best, probably will not revisit. 3.5 stars from me. It was jarring how fast some things moved along.
