3 1/2–Just Fun–Stars

What Are Friends For? is a very short (52 pages) friends-to-lovers trope that's sugary sweet and sexy. There was also a surprising amount of substance stuffed into this cute plot for such a short book. Plus, it's the perfect read for when you need a break from all that angst and just want to smile.

First of all, Lynn LaFleur is a very talented writer. Not only does she write scenes that drip with sensuality, but she creates true relationships between her characters. Many authors can do that, but few can do it in the space of a novella, when you have no more than 2 short chapters to flesh out your characters.

In this case, Erin and Luke have been friends for quite a few years. Erin's most recent failed relationship, leads her to believe that she's doing something wrong...sexually. Who better

Ok, so this was a really short book, but at least it had a sweet story attached to it.
It wasn't just a porn scene spread over a few pages, which was nice.

3 1/2 stars

Lynn LaFleur has piqued my interest with her volunteer firemen so I thought I'd try one of her other books. I was not disappointed…although I always wish her stories were longer.

Erin has come to the conclusion that she's bad in bed. It's the only explanation she can give herself since every time she sleeps with a man they never call her afterward. This includes the ones she's gone a few dates with. Saying that, her insecurity could be more true than not. But how could one find out for sure? You

This was a really good friends to lovers story. Erin wants to move this relationship to another level after being dumped by yet another boyfriend after they have sex. She wanted to know if she was the problem. Luke, her best friend for 4 years, seemed like the perfect person to help her with this task.

Luke is reluctant because he doesn't want to ruin the friendship that they have. But of course he is a man, and she asks so nicely that he gives in. It becomes more emotional for him....and for her

An amazing fast paced read. Beautiful details into the characters lives. Descriptions of them both were perfect, I had no trouble picturing how Luke & Erin looked. A wonderful story of what happens when a man & a woman are best friends, both looking so hard to find "the one." And it's when you least expect it, you look up & discover it has been right in front of you all along.

I really enjoy Lynn LaFleur's work. FORBIDDEN FANTASIES is another pulse raising one. I have reviewed that bo

Sometimes we all wonder if that guy we are best friends with could be anything more than just friends. LaFleur takes that wonder and weaves it into a book that will make you start to feel a little hot.

Such a quick, little cute read that will make you long for a guy friend like Luke on so many different levels. He is so sweet to her when she needs comforting and then when she finally breaks him down, he is sweet to her on a whole other realm.

Refreshingly delightful, fun, hot and intense read by Lynn LaFleur. Wonderfully written characters that anyone would be happy to meet in real life (especially Luke!)

It was great to see two such close friends develop into something much more. They were perfect together as friends and are now even better together as lovers.

This was a cute short story about two friends who become lovers. Erin's boyfriends always break up with her right after they have sex. Erin thinks she's a bad lover so she recruits her best friend, and resident hottie, to help her out.

This was a really short story so it was a little hard to connect with the characters. I felt Erin was a little needy and whiny. Otherwise a cute story!

I'm gonna put it out there: I bought this book because of the cover :) The bonus was the wonderfully sweet and sexy story inside between Luke and Enid. I heart BFF-to-lovers stories, I do. So, this was a nice, sigh-and-swoon-worthy read :)

When I read the blurb for this book I thought it had so much potential, however I felt it was to short! it could have been longer and made more of a story out of it however if your looking for a fun, short read full of friendship that grows into more then its an interesting and fun read

Oh man wouldn't I love to have a hot friend like him and he can change my a/c any day. I think the cover about did me in along with the sweet details about him.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for best friends to lover stories. Really quick read, finished it in like 20 minutes. Good for what it was.

I was born and raised in a small town in Texas close to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Writing has been in my blood since I was eight years old and wrote my first story for an English assignment. The baby of four children, I was spoiled rotten and still am.

I can't imagine ever writing anything but romances. I enjoy writing about two people (or sometimes more than two) falling in love. If you like the
