About Camilla Isley


Camilla is an engineer turned writer after she quit her job to follow her husband in an adventure abroad. She’s a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading—duh!—cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies—popcorn, please. She’s a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but she could really live without them.

Review by Anniek

Rose and Tyler grew up together. Ever since Rose was twelve years old she has had a crush on Tyler. Tyler however has to stop playing the field first. Rose has had her ups and downs. She had a good relationship but got dumped right before they would move in together. With nowhere to go Rose moves in with Tyler. Tyler has been in a relationship with Georgiana for a while now, but Rose is expecting Tyler to break up with her soon.

When Rose and Tyler get into an emotional argument they take their friendship to the next level. Now is the time that choices have to be made. Will Rose be able to forget how Tyler treated all of his other girlfriends and trust that he will treat her right? Is Tyler finally done with meaningless relationships, so he can spend the rest of his life with his best and oldest friend?

Rose is smart girl and comes from a good family. She is attending Harvard Law School and hopes to become a criminal defense lawyer. Ever since she was a young girl Rose's father has been reading criminal cases to her instead of fairytales, which she enjoyed very much. Rose has a very strong bond with her father, but hides that she comes from a wealthy family. When Rose meets Ethan she finds him very attractive. Rose and Ethan become closer during the six months that Tyler is in Paris. Rose deserves to find the right kind of love and not settle for anything less. She is a bit naΓ―ve at times, but I really liked the way her mind works and that she can make connections really fast. Rose is also very kind to others even when they don't always deserve it.

Let's Just Be Friends is an enjoyable and fast read. All of the characters are really believable. While reading this book it made me reminisce about the past and I'm sure this will be the case for many of you out there when you're reading this book. Camilla Isley never disappoints with her light-hearted romantic novels. She is an experienced and skillful writer and has written another brilliant story that I highly recommend.

  28. These looks like truly enjoyable! And I love the use of silhouettes on the covers-- so lovely, and they really stand out from the crowd.

    My favorite part of the review is this: "Rose deserves to find the right kind of love and not settle for anything less." I LOVE this-- yesssss! I also love what it does NOT say, e.g. "Rose expects and demands only the most perfect kind of love, and refuses to consider anything else."

    Love it, love it, love it.
    Thank you!
