Holy Hotness!

Friends to lovers is one of my favorite setups because it seems realistic. This is the story of Ross helping Kara to learn to enjoy sex without falling into habits of starting to nest and expect a wedding. Can they really do this and still be friends? The humor and sizzling sex build this engaging story until you are rooting for them to wake up and smell the Romance!!! Read it and see if and how things work out. You won't be sorry.

I always love friends-to-lovers theme, although I didn't really like the idea experimenting things like Kara and Ross did.
Aside from that, there were couples of scenes I enjoyed. A specific scene even reminded me of my friend who gave this book to me. :D
Most of the time I got quiet annoyed reading about story of someone who's not the main character. I mean like, just put them in another book. But somehow I enjoyed about how Tina, Kara and Ross' friend, finally fell for Tom, the bartender, and T
Saw this book on an AAR list, but it took me a while to hunt it down. Strangely, I found that what I most enjoyed about this was the friendship/banter, rather than any of the romance stuff (strange because I found it through a list of romances).

I always wanted to be a writer--from the moment I put fat pencil to brown-lined paper in second grade to write an elaborate story using all the spelling words on our list.
Though I always wanted to be a professional writer, I wasn't sure I had the stuff, so I graduated from college with a teaching degree and taught elementary school--second and third grades (the best)--and then began freelance feat
