Everyone knows not to fall in love with your best friend.
But when your best friend is Michael Becker, it’s impossible not to.
He’s everything our town knows a Becker brother to be: devastatingly handsome, charming as a thief, and the icing on the cake — a sentimental musician who’s never without his guitar.
And he was mine. At least, that’s what I’d convinced myself.
Our bond was born in elementary school, strengthened by circumstance and the promise to always be there for each other, no matter what. And the best thing about my life was being friends with Michael Becker.
Until it was the worst.
I watched him fall in love with someone else, and helped patch him back up when she left him behind. But when he drops the bomb that he’s moving to New York, I realize it’s my last chance to tell him how I feel. And I ask him to make one more promise.
One summer. One list of adventures to remind him that our small town has more to offer than memories of the girl who left him behind.
One last chance to tell him I’m in love with him.
And I’m just dumb enough to believe that maybe he could love me, too.

GAH, don’t you just love a Kandi Steiner romance?! Her stories have always brought me immense joy, happiness, and ALL THE FEELS, and I’ve honestly loved them with all my heart. Her beautiful prose has sucked me in every single time, and I can never get enough of her beautiful, inspiring, emotional, and memorable contemporary romances. The Becker Brothers series of standalones have been some of her best works to date, and I can’t wait to devour more from her!
The entire Becker Brothers series has been PHENOMENAL so far, and I’ve dearly loved each standalone, but Manhattan has been my favorite! I absolutely loved Michael and Kylie’s sweet, sexy, swoon-worthy, and romantic friends-to-lovers story. The storyline, the characters, the writing, everything about it was breathtaking. Kandi Steiner took me on a journey like no other, and although it was heartbreaking and emotional at times, I loved every single minute and was ecstatic with the conclusion. On the Rocks, Neat, and Manhattan have all been MUST READ standalone contemporary romances, and I can’t wait to devour the final standalone in the Becker Brothers series, Jordan Becker’s story, in Old Fashioned!
About Kandi Steiner
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
