4.5 Stars

This is one of those romances that sneaks up on the couple which makes it all the more interesting. Both the hero and heroine are coming out of toxic relationships, both are having issues with their jobs, and both have vowed to not date but their friendship begins to cross boundaries they never intended to cross. This is one hot and sexy romance with just the right amount of conflict to make it interesting but not so much as to weigh
So many issues, I don't know where to start. Did I read the same book as the other reviewers?

Presley comes home to find her long time boyfriend Trent shtuping some chick on her kitchen counters; promptly throws them out and bleaches her counters and throws out her bed.. ew. She's friends with Trent's brother, Mason, who was just dumped by his snotty girlfriend. Both hurting, they commiserate, exchange keys to each others' places, hangout, play video games and hangout, agreeing that they'll never

Wow! This book starts with a bang. (Ha! Pun intended.) Presley catches her friend and boyfriend in a compromising position on HER kitchen counter no less. Despite the heart ache both main characters go through early on, this was a great book! Mason and Presley were perfect for each other and I enjoyed watching them grow from friends, to lovers and then eventually a couple. The only reason this book is not receiving a 5 star rating is that I really wanted an epilogue that would have wrap

At the same time across town, Mason Sutton, Trent's younger brother, is in the process of being dumped by his social climbing

I'm a contemporary romance addict so when an author writes in multiple subgenres, the contemporary romance books will always be the first ones I go to. This has also been the case with Carrie Ann Ryan. I love her Midnight Ink series and when I heard this Tempting Signs series novella she'd written was contemporary romance as well I grabbed it as soon as it released (June 2015) and then it just sat there...on my TBR. When I was looking for a quick read (in wait for a highly anticipated release —K ...more

Presley and Mason have sworn off love but as they soothe each other's pain they find themselves falling for each other in this captivating contemporary romance.

Losing the someone you thought you were going to spend your life with through no fault of your own can be devastating unless you have good friends to help through and the reader can't help but get caught up in the emotionally charged atmosphere of this captivating romance as Presley and Mason discover that life goes on and that they can t

This is a friend turned lovers story, a simple and enjoyable short read even with the faults which I will get to later.

First, what I love about this novella? Mason. Mason. Mason. He's such a sweetheart plus he's sexy as hell. He was attracted to Presley but made himself stop thinking about her sexually because she was his brother's girlfriend. A landscape architect, he was looked down by not only his brother Trent but also by his girlfriend Lorena. My guess is that Trent knew that Mason is the

I really enjoyed this story! It was a fairly quick read but I absolutely loved it! Presley walks in on her friend and boyfriend having sex in her kitchen. She quickly throws them out and lets them know that she never wants to see them again. Mason, Presley's ex's brother, has his girlfriend publicly break up with him on the same night. Once Mason finds out what his brother has done he lets him have it and heads to Presley's. They become best friends that night and spend a lot of time together. M ...more

I've read other Carrie Ann Ryan books and love them. This one was like it was thrown together. Presley comes home to find her d-bag boyfriend Trent doing her friend on the kitchen counter. Same day Trent's brother Mason breaks up with his stuck up girlfriend. Apparently in the year Presley and Trent were together she formed a close friendship with Mason. He finds out about her break up and knowing it had to be his brothers fault he rushes over to console Presley. Their friendship grows to the po ...more

I was giving his book to read for an honest review. It's a best friends to lovers. It is a fast, good read. Mason was a sweetheart out of the bedroom and sexy, alpha man in the bedroom which was hot. The interaction between Presley and Mason was goofy and loving, you can tell they enjoyed each others company. After Presley found her boyfriend cheating on her and Mason girlfriend breaking up with him, they both sworn off love, so being good friends, they decide to do the whole friends with benefi ...more

Mason works in dirt and he loves it. But when his current girlfriend decides that his profession is beneath her and dumps him publicly...he decides love isn't for him.

Such a good story of friends to lovers. Presley walks in on her jerk of a boyfriend cheating on her the same day that Mason's girlfriend breaks up with him. Mason happens to be brothers with the cheating jerk but he is nothing like him. however, he's always had a bit of a crush on Presley. They agree to a friends with benefits relationship but end up falling in love. They don't want to admit their feeling to each other because they are afraid. Mason keeps a secret from Presley that his jerk brot ...more
This friends-to-lovers story was a likeable read that I felt I could have liked if I had more background. The author describes it as a 'stand-alone' on her website. While this is true in the sense that it doesn't tie into any of the series that Carrie Ann Ryan writes herself, in reading it, it is definitely obvious that it forms part of a multi-author series.
It was a some-what quick read that had a distinctly different pacing to what I'm used to from this author. I also felt like the hero and he

Mason was ready to take the next step with his girlfriend, only to be dumped by her. With Presley hating the people she works with and Mason not wanting to work with his brother anymore, they turn to each other for some support ...more

Mason and Presley's story is fantastic. I have a soft spot for books where friendship turns into happily ever after romance. I wanted Presley to stand up for herself though. I felt like she let people (not Mason) walk all over her. She didn't once stand up for herself with Trent or with her boss Stan. I thought the ending was a little rushed. Other than that, it was terrific and a great read. It will be a book I recommend to others.

Normally I have only read Ms. Ryan's paranormal books so when I saw that she writes contemporary as well I figured why not. I loved her Montgomery Ink series so when I saw this book I just knew it would be good. I was very happy to be right Presley and Mason were one of her best couples, the fact that Mason was technically her ex's brother just made the fact that they fell for each other that much crazier and I love when crazy meets love.

After Presley's boyfriend cheated on her, she finds comfort in the most unlikely place . . . with the brother of her ex who is also going through a breakup. I enjoyed the storyline of Presley and Mason falling into an unexpected and passionate relationship. I really liked Presley's character - a strong woman fighting to make her way in a male-dominated career.

This is an enjoyable story. The story quickly grabbed my attention and had me glued to the pages until finished. The story was a blend of sweet, a little steamy, and romantic. I really liked the characters and wanted to see them happy. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I received a copy of this manuscript from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted.

The premise sounded interesting and I believed all the 5 star reviews. I didn't care for the writing style and the story got tedious. So many things didn't make sense. Why were they with such obviously horrible people in the first place. It made them seem like idiots with terrible judgement.

I didn't realize this was a "friends with benefits" book and I do not like that trope.

I can't recommend this unless it's a freebie.

I did enjoy this however I think I'm more of a paranormal fan than a fan of more everyday romance type novels. That said it was an enjoyable read and a very relatable storyline. I find all of of Carrie Ann Ryan's novels have a lot of relatable content.

This was a fantastic read! I'm so used to reading books by this author that are part of a series I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Presley and Mason were the ideal friends to lovers couple.

Carrie Ann Ryan is one of my ONE CLICK Authors...I have yet to find a book that is not a 5 star book from her. This book meets that and more. First off let me begin by saying this is one of 12 books written by 12 different authors. One for each sign in the horoscope. Since this is Cancer now we have 2 Cancers who are meeting up and their story.

I am never one to give the storyline away in a review so you will see me tell you bits and pieces so let me say this is one very hot and very good read. I
