He was her best friend until he became her fantasy.

Lucy Lawson's got it bad. Bad as in stunned speechless by the situation she's in, by the feelings sitting on her chest, ready to explode. She's in love with her best friend.

Problem is, telling Sebastian Blackford could destroy the best thing in her life, but the longer she keeps her feelings under wraps, the stronger the n

It was a nice little read..

I really liked Lucy, her attitude and her character..
I would like for it to be a full novel because a person like her could deliver drama so good..
Seb was o.k. i think but there was something missing..
Overly it was an easy read..
And i loved the kissing scene so much..

I'm a huge Dee fan and she has an awesome ability make her stories sizzle like no one else. Seb's revelation was fast, but in true Dee fashion she made it make complete sense. The story may have been short, but Dee never takes the easy route to falling in love. It had the perfect combination of heat, chemistry, emotions, and of course I shed some tears! Now be prepared, because we do get one panty melter of a scene with them in the bathroom! Given how hot that scene was, I so would have loved to ...more
Can someone please pass me a fan? Some ice maybe? Anyone?? *looks around*

This was one HOT friends to lovers tale. I have read several books by this author and have yet to find one I didn't love! Ms. Dee sure knows how to write a hot story! In More than Friends we have Lucy and Sebastian who have been best buds for many years. When Lucy has the sudden realization that she's fallen in love with Seb, she has to figure out if its better to keep those feelings to herself or let him in on the new dev

I really liked the premise of this one and liked what I was reading until Seb's reaction to when Lucy bared her feelings. I get that he was stunned, but he let her go, then when he did come after her he started thinking with his little head, not his big one. It got worse when things heated up and sex fully came into the equation. It seemed like from there Seb did everything wrong. I found myself feeling like Lucy did on her run. I was glad to see her confront Seb, thought her argument was a good ...more

This was short and sweet! Actually short and white-hot! The only thing I was cringing over was Lucy's confession. It was way, way too much information to tell Sebastian!! Holy shit, she did not hold back.
But short and definitely entertaining ;-))))

Lucy and Sebastian are best friends. They’ve been best friends for years. They run together, talk and text each other, are able to lean on each other when they need advice or solace and have an open movie night every Sunday. Though lately Lucy’s feelings have changed. Seb isn’t just her best friend, he’s the star in all of her fantasies and the man she’s fallen in love with. After one of their movie nights Lucy finally confesses

This was my first, and last, Jess Dee book....

If I could give this 0 stars I would. So I'm all for a hot and steamy romance and I thought the idea of a girl confessing her love for her long time best bud would be a nice story line. Two pages in I had a feeling this book was going to be horrible and it didn't prove me wrong. I'm all about hot and steamy (I quite enjoyed the Fifty Shades trilogy) so that's not the problem here. It was just the way it was written. It was crud

That's a short story, which IMO tried to tackle a topic - from friend to lovers - which is difficult to make convincing in not enough pages.
I did not like that I did not really understand why the heroine had fallen in love with the hero. As I understood it, it was because one day he shaved his hair instead of progressively getting bald. It seemed rather superficial as a reason for such a change of heart.
As the story began, she unfolded her unrequited feelings to her long time friend. Oh, that w

I needed a lighter read after the book I read before this one and thought this would be perfect. It was just what I needed. Steamy hot chemistry and sex with some angst. It took a lot of balls for Lucy to tell Seb how she felt, and his reaction was less than perfect, in fact it was pretty much THE WORST. I can’t imagine how she felt.

Once they worked everything out, I was extremely happy. I didn’t need any extra drama or details, to me this was the perfect amount of everything.

Considering I am not a fan of friends-to-lovers theme, this was surprisingly good (and hot).

While this tried to be a flirty, sexy friends to lovers story, I found the circumstances in the book cheapened the relationship and didn't find it sexy at all.

I just find the premise so unrealistic it was hard to get into. No woman in her right mind would blurt our declarations of love and fantasies in the same conversation. One would come before the other and you would try to have some tact. Another thing that made it hard for me to like is the nicknames. Ugh it may sound nit picky but I just wanted to throw things when she called him Seb or when he called her Lucy-loo. Why not just drown the mood, it would have the same effect. I did think the steam ...more

More Than Friends is Jess Dee at her best, with charismatic characters, intriguing twists and turns, and lots of scorching hot sex, especially the action in the bathroom.

Lucy Lawson and Sebastian Blackford have been best friends for six years, ever since Lucy split from Seb’s friend Leo. She has cried on his shoulder over breakups and they have fun together as friends do. So why, after all this time, does Lucy discover she has feeling

More Than Friends by Jess Dee is a panty melting bunch of smoking hotness!! This is a quick read that will have you panting by chapter three!!! Have the ice water, fan, and man/toy handy when opening this beauty up!!

MORE THAN FRIENDS is a friends-to-lovers with an emotional twist. In less than a 100 pages it tells a seemingly one-sided FTL story that had me wondering how it was going to turn out and if there was going to be a HEA.

I'll give the critical reader that Seb's turnabout is rather sudden and not in line with how the book starts out but at the same time I'll admit it didn't bother me because without it there would be no story.

I love Jess Dee and I love her books. She has the ability to take tropes

I am a sucker for a good friends to lovers romance. I am also a sucker for the good bout of eroticism and romance that Jess Dee can deliver in her books. It goes to show just how out of the loop I have been to have missed out on Jess Dee’s More Than series which debuted in 2013 which I found out about only just last month. When I stumbled upon the series, I wasted no time in acquiring all three novellas and curled up in bed to enjoy the wild ride that only few authors such as Jess can only deliv ...more

The story begins with Lucy and Seb who are best friends, when Lucy-loo flips the script and admits to Sebastian that she's in love with him.

a great friendship that blossomed after Lucy breaks up with a friend of Sebastian has totally spun out of control. some would think that since Seb was friends with Lucy's ex that they would not stay friends, but they were great for each other, he was always there when she had breakups or she needed a shoulder to cry on but after spilling the beans to Seb tha

This is a novella so it’s super short. I’m speechless…and not in a good way. I didn’t connect with the characters at all. I can’t even remember their names half the time. The writing style was good and the book is easy to follow but it just isn’t for me. Seb disturbed me. I just can’t get over it. I was literally at a loss when I finished…

For such a short story, this packed one emotional punch. I read it in one sitting. It's a great friends to lovers story. Lucy and Sebastian have been friends for years but one day Seb changed his look and Lucy saw him in a whole new light. She has been holding her feeling inside and its killing her. Seb ask her whats wrong and she couldn't contain them anymore. They burst from her in a painstakingly embarrassing way only for hi

Forever friends, nothing more... but the day Sebastian shaved his head it had given him an edge of sensual that took her breath away. He'd become her fantasies and dream about him every night... not just any dream... dirty dreams. Her obsessions with him had continue for too long.. the time has come to tell Seb how she felt...

This review is my personal opinion and may contain: spoilers, quotes, rants, cussing (sometimes I cannot help myself) and a possible full on recap. I in no way want to ruin anyone’s book reading experience so please read my words with caution.

Lucy drops a MAJOR bomb on her best friend... She loves him, like love loves him. It does not go well at all. She shocks her friend. She runs from the rejection and to her surprise Seb comes over refusing to be shut out lik

I should dub this weekend, quick read weekend.

Another short read about friends who become more. Loo can't fight her feelings any longer for Seb and she blurts it out. Well, she doesn't get the reaction she was hoping for at the time.

Sucks to be Loo but that's not the end of it ... it's actually the beginning of this short story. I love reading Jess Dee stories for just for the glimpses into Australia but there's also the hotness factor. What transpires between Loo & Seb is quite

okay, so I just read this after reading a book with the same title and I can say that the other one is way way better. Don't u blame me! I have my own reasons! lol. so first, is because of the guy I mean he's hair is perfectly shaven and it was a major turn off for me (forgive me!) and because the girl wont freakin' shut her mouth (she's way too forward). seriously girl? it's like the two of them spoke through their genitals and it's kinda creepy.

Lucy was a bit of an annoying twit. Mostly because she pulled the dumb girl move of asking a man to think about his feelings IN THE MIDDLE OF SEX. Dumbass.

Sebastian, I rather liked.

This was very short though. But all in all... I liked it.

I had no idea when I started reading this that it was set in Australia, and that was a pleasant surprise.
I think I'd be happy to read others by this author.
