Falling in love with your best friend? Easy. 
Telling them how you really feel? Impossible.

Quinn Shaughnessy believes there's a lot more to life than romance, and he always thought his best friend Anna agreed. But now she's coming out of her shell and dating…and Quinn starts seeing her in a very different light. 
Anna can tell Quinn anything, except the big secret she's been hiding for years—that she's fallen in love with him. Now Anna is determined to make a life for herself that doesn't include hopeless pining. But just as she's ready to move on, Quinn seems determined not to let go—and the way he's looking at her might be enough to finally change them from best friends to best everything.

  • Fantastic read!!

    By sferguson105
    Samantha Chase is one of my favorite authors, and she has nailed book 3 in the Shaughnessy series!! Anna and Quinn are a pretty awesome couple. I loved how Quinn finally discovered that Anna was not just a girl to hang out with, but a woman who was sexy and fun. My heart broke for both characters, as they face many issues, from not just their own insecurities, but also the influences of those around them. I loved catching up with the characters from previous books, and can't wait to see what Samantha has in store for us next!! This is definitely a must read!!
  • Loving It!

    By kmmichels
    I'm starting to really love Samantha Chase's writing style, and with Always My Girl, I've got a new series to love. Now I need to go back and read the previous books in the series to get the low down on the other brothers. Quinn and Anna were so adorably sweet, and I wanted to smack Quinn a bit, but other than maybe a little more heat, this story had it all.
  • Friends to Lovers

    By AmyHiggs
    Always My Girl is the third book in the Shaughnessy Brothers series. This book is about Anna and Quinn. They have been best friends since childhood when Anna moved in next door. Anna is in love with Quinn but has never told him. When Quinn finally sees Anna as a woman and not just his best friend sparks fly! I loved Quinn and Anna! I loved how they transitioned from friends to lovers. I loved hearing more about the other Shaughnessy family members too! The epilogue made me so happy! I'm hoping Bobby will get a story too! I would definitely recommend this book!
  • Always My Girl

    By Eileen A-W
    Always My Girl by Samantha Chase is the third book in her Shaughnessy Brothers series. It is a sweet story that focuses Anna Hannigan and Quinn Shaughnessy. These two were best friends and next door neighbors growing up. Anna was a tomboy who started falling for Quinn as she grew older. Quinn didn’t seem to notice Anna except as his best friend. Anna was tired of being overlooked and felt she was in a rut. Needing a change, she left her job at the pub to sell real estate. She’s not happy with her change, but believes it’s the only way to meet dateable men. Quinn doesn’t know what hit him when he realizes that Anna has curves and is beautiful. Both worry that their friendship will not survive if they enter into a relationship. What comes next is a roller coaster ride of two wonderful people forgetting to be friends when they become lovers. The question remains, will they be able to salvage their friendship and stay in a relationship. This was a fun and entertaining story with likeable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers. Although this book is part of a series, it does stand alone and it doesn’t matter if you haven’t read the previous books. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
  • Love Anna and Quinn

    By Lisa's Reads
    I Loved this story. It is a wonderful addition to the Shaughnessy Series. Anna Hannigan has been best Friends with Quinn Shaughnessy since she was about 6 years old, she has also had a crush on him just about as long. The only problem is Quinn only sees her as a buddy. Anna does not want to tell him how she feels and chance ruining their friendship. Quinn has always counted on Anna to be there for him, although lately she is changing and he can't figure out why. Suddenly he is starting to see Anna in a new light. With so many mixed emotions will they ever be able to move forward and make a romantic relationship work or are they destined to just stay friends? I had a wide range of emotions going on while reading this book. I teared up, laughed and even got a little mad at Quinn, but he redeemed himself. So much is going on with these two trying to figure their lives out, that is makes for a great read I just could not put down. Of course we see more of the rest of the lovable Shaughnessy family and I am looking forward to more to come!!!
  • Friends to Lovers

    By SBart79
    Review Loved, loved this story of friends to lovers. A sweet with a little hotness in this story. Anna has always loved Quinn, since sharing their chocolate chip cookies together. Quinn, always considered Anna, his best friend, the girl next door. Now Anna needs Quinn to find her as a desirable woman, so she makes changes to what she thinks Quinn wants. Their sexual chemistry is hot, but Quinn is afraid of failure, he has always been a player and he doesn't want to loose what they have. Their relationship will take you on a roller coaster, with laughs and tears. Ok. so I wanted to slap Quinn a few times. I loved catching up with the rest Shaughnessy family, great family dynamics. This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. Can't wait for more!! By the way, I love this cover!!!
  • Quinn and Anna!!!

    By Birch Fam
    Always My Girl is the Shaughnessy Brothers book you have been waiting for, Quinn and Anna! This friends to lovers story has been brewing throughout the series and now it’s time for Quinn to get a clue and Anna to be a bit brave. Once Quinn is clued into Anna’s feelings he realizes that she has probably always been the girl for him but is he right for her. Finally having Quinn as more than just her best friend is everything that Anna knew it would be, except that something isn’t quite right with Quinn all of a sudden. Using her now trademark wit, exploration of family dynamics, and deep emotions Samantha Chase creates a story of self-discovery, first love, and happily ever after!
