    Description

    Alice is in love with her best friend. Now all she needs to do is tell him.  

    Best buds Milo Manganiello and Alice Hooper have been the one constant in each other's lives for over 15 years. The charismatic and compassionate physics professor was there when Alice got married, and he was there 10 years later when she got divorced. Likewise, the candid and kind computer science professor has always been there for Milo. She babysits his apartment and plethora of houseplants when he's traveling, and they share breakfast together every day he's in town. Alice wasn't always in love with Milo, but the feeling has grown, and when Milo returns from his latest globe-trotting adventure, Alice decides it's time to spill the seeds. 

    Does Alice have the grit to confess? And will feelings take root? Or is hers a love destined never to bloom? 

    Live and Let Grow is a 14k-word (short) contemporary romance of long-suffering unrequited love and can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

    Be warned

    This books ends in a very erotic way, so if you don’t want this avoid this story. I loved the story and wished this had a warning on it so I could have avoided it.

    Knuckle headed professors finally fess up to ❤️

    Good thing the story starts at the end, essentially giving us the final chapter of this rom-com, after Milo and Alice have each spent years in the friend zone through their own bone-headedness. I would normally find the lack of communication annoyingly implausible, but this was so short, fun and sweet that I didn’t mind. This was a surprisingly complete story for a 1.5 hr novella. There’s 2-3 F bombs and 1 nooky scene after they finally fess up to their mutual love.

    Veeeeeerrrrry short unrequited (but not really) romance

    This is a condensed, short story that has all the elements of a romance but falls short for me when it comes to the resolution. It seems like after 15 years of unrequited love, the end of a 17 year marriage, and 2-3 years of seeming unrequited love that there would be way more issues to discuss. And to hop back into marriage after suddenly realizing the love IS “requited”. Eh, I was just a bit skeptical.
    What worked was the characterization of Alice, I would have liked to see more of her intelligence, more about her green thumb etc. But I liked her quirkiness, love how Penny Reid does quirky heroines.
    Milo fell a bit flat for me, I needed more about him. Everything we know is basically encompassed by his love and longing for Alice and how he’s coped over the years.

    Worst thing Penny has written

    The characters are unbelievably stupid so the story doesn’t make sense. I think she was trying to develop a miscommunication storyline but it really doesn’t make sense that two professors who are best friends are basically too witless to talk to the other honestly for 15 freaking years.
    This story was free and I still want a refund.

    Surprisingly Disappointing

    I really like Penny Reid, but this wasn't good. Male but not female narrator was good.

    Disappointed with the wrap up

    I loved the characters and thought the situation was very relatable. I thought the way Alice was portrayed spoke volumes for her inability to read social cues. The ending however fell flat for me. While i love a good explicit scene it seemed out of place in this story and very abrupt when there were no previous inclinations throughout the first half of the story. The way it played out seemed like Milo’s advances came on too strong when when he hadn’t heard any of Alice’s feelings toward him until after they were both undressed. There was no explanation of how she felt and no chance to see how Milo would react to the reasons of the hacking into his accounts or her weird behavior that started the mess of the past few months. If the book had to end with a marriage proposal right after sex, thats fine. But i wanted at the very least an epilog. Resolving things from her sisters advice to a heartfelt conversation between Milo and Alice.

    I wish it was longer!

    The ending made me cry! I loved hearing from both perspectives. It just made the feelings that more authentic
