Call Her Mine (Harmony Pointe #1) by Melissa Foster
Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.

This is a friend to lovers book. I went in blind and I hoped to be a good book, and I can say I really enjoyed it.
Ben and Aurelia have been best friends since forever, but secretly wanted more. Every time Ben wanted to become more, Aurelia freaked out or the timing wasn’t right.
Everything goes south when one morning, Ben finds a baby girl on his doorsteps. Luckily, Aurelia is there, and they manage the situation.
Even though now is really not the time, feelings come clean and they will deal with this together.
This is a start for a new series, and although I am not that familiar with Melissa Forester’s other series, I found myself overcome by the number of friends and family. I guess it would have been easier for someone who knows some of them, but as a rookie, this was a small thing I disliked.
Anyway, the story was sweet and the ending nearly broke me. It can be read as a standalone and has a HEA.
