More information


Traveling across the country in close quarters with my sexy, sweet best friend is proving too tempting to resist. But I can’t risk losing the one person who’s my true home.

When tragedy wrecked my life and I left town to drive across North America and find myself, texting with my childhood friend became my anchor.

Two years later, I’m finally ready to go back to my small town… and Joel drops everything to keep me company on the last stretch of my journey. Two big people, cozy in my tiny home, driving through half the continent.

If only seeing him in person again didn’t stir my feelings in the scariest ways. If his dark hair and intense eyes didn’t make me want to climb him like a tree. If it weren’t so clear he wants me, too. Then maybe we wouldn’t be tempted to become a couple and risk what we have.

But his friendship is too important. I can’t let these feelings break us. Nothing can come between us, not even romance.

Return To Love is a short friends to lovers, road trip romance. Both characters are Latine and fat, and the story includes open door spice and the Only One Bed trope.
