    Flyttering Throughts:

    Worldbuilding: This story primarily takes place in Lisle’s apartment!
    Characters:The main characters are Lisle Cunningham and Wyatt Majors. Lisle has always rebuffed falling in love and getting married but for the last few years she has felt the urge for something more in her life. Falling in love with her best friend Wyatt was easy but acting on those feelings terrified her. She would rather have him as a friend than nothing at all. Can she wise up and finally reveal her true feelings for him or will she go through life being only his friend and nothing more? Wyatt has loved Lisle since his sophomore year in college but decided to wait until she made the first move. Now years later nothing has changed and he is getting impatient. Will Wyatt finally proclaim his love for Lisle or will another guy swoop in before he has the chance?
    Plot: This novella was just really about the main characters finally acting on their feelings for one another and taking a chance on happiness!
    Writing: This story is told in first person point of view of Lisle. I really liked how their past was slightly included in the chapters and that the author gave such a solid background on the characters
    Curb Appeal: Super gorgeous cover (can’t say that enough times haha)!! The little blurb in the beginning of the story gave a slight spoiler alert since it told you the main characters are going to have a happy ending but I appreciated that it told me that this was a friends to lovers story!
    Utlimately: This was a short and sweet story that hit the spot for a quick friends to lovers story! All in all, if you are thinking about checking out For the First Time Anthology, I wholly recommend reading Delay of Game!!!!

    I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
