Platonic Rulebook – Saxon James

Reviews by Yael Waknin



Walking away from my marriage was my idea of a fresh start.

My kid is in college, my ex-wife and I are on good terms … but being single in my forties is a world different to being single in my teens.

I’m thankful for my best friend, Heath. He’s got my back like he always does and is ready to take me out and show me how the bachelor life is done.

He was never supposed to show me literally.

After we wake up in bed together, I can’t stop looking at him differently, and one thing becomes abundantly clear.

I talk a big talk about wanting to be single, but my platonic rule book has gone out the window.



When my best friend comes to me for help post-divorce, I’m only too happy to impart my wisdom to him.

After all, Griffin isn’t my type, but even I can tell he’s a complete lumbersnack. Good with his hands, kind eyes, and a killer smile. All the guys and gals are gonna eat him alive.

But the more time we spend together, the less “not my type” he becomes. I’m the one who can’t get enough of him.

Neither of us is interested in a relationship, so what’s a little fun between friends?

We both know the score.

My review

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


I’ve read the previous book in the series, and I liked it a lot. I was also intrigued about several characters and Griff included.

We knew from the previous book that he’s getting a divorce from his wife when their son will go to college (he was in his last year in high school) and I was wondering what will be with him! And with who?

Griff definitely wasn’t something I expected.

He was such a devoted person! To his family, to his friends to his work (well, the part he loved anyway)

Griff and Heath’s relationship (as best friends) was so strong and powerful that I knew would light fire when they’ll be together!

I think Heath was a perfect person. He really was. He was so selfless and all he wanted was to help everyone around him especially Griff (even when they were just friends!)

I love that when I read friends to lovers trope and they have a special honesty and trust for each other. I love that they know what they want and showing it to the other one.

I love friends to lovers trope because when the author knows how to make us see their friendship BEFORE anything happens it’s like we’re experiencing everything with the couple!

Heath and Griff had something special as friends and as more. They had something deep that connected them as if they were made for each other. It was simply Beautiful!
