USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly cranks up the heat for two lifelong friends whose most secret longings come true in every delectable way.
Vivacious and successful, Ava Meyers is living her dream life, except for one thing: Ever since childhood, she’s been in love with her best friend . . . and she’s never admitted it. Back then, Sam Farrow was a damaged young man with a tough past. Now he’s supremely confident, super-sexy, and totally untouchable—until the night when Sam pretends to be Ava’s boyfriend to save her from some unwanted attention. In a moment of weakness, Ava finds out that a long friendship is no match for blistering sexual chemistry.
After years of denying his own feelings, Sam finds that one amazing night with Ava isn’t enough to chase away all the pent-up fantasies. So he proposes they spend a few weeks driving each other wild, exhausting their every desire, and then return to their perfect platonic relationship like nothing ever happened. But Sam’s plan has one fatal flaw: the part where they give each other up. Because the more they let go of their inhibitions, the more they’re tempted to never go back.
Ava and Sam have known each other since they were little kids and there had always been feelings involved but neither acted on them. Now they are both grown up and still haven’t acted upon those feelings. That is until a guy has his eye on Ava and she dislikes this very much. She asks Sam to be her date and at first, he says no but later on agrees to go with her. They need to make believable that they are dating and for that to happen, they obviously need to kiss and show affection. They instantly click and their sexual needs are not far behind.
I loved this story a whole lot more than the first book in this series. Ever since I read Truth or Dare, I was in love with Ava and Sam. I adored those two and I needed their story ASAP. I finally read it and I loved it. I am giving this story 3.5 stars because while I loved the story quite a lot, I was expecting just a bit more…excitement. It was slow at first but once these two characters get together, it’s an explosion of passion. The characters are so easy to love, their story is amazing. I mean, who doesn’t love the best-friends-to-lovers relationship, right? The reader can’t help but fall in love with Ava and Sam. Since they have known each other for so long, they know the right buttons to push, which makes the story fun and interesting.
Near the end, I got very frustrated because I felt like Sam wasn’t being understanding towards Ava and the things he said got me emotional and made me want to slap him but at the same time, he had a point because he was clueless to all of what was happening. STILL, the story is great. I highly recommend it because it is fun and short and HOT!
