Under Pressure is book three in the Dossier series by Cathryn Fox. After reading the second book in this series, I have been looking forward to seeing who gets to go on their adventure next, and it’s Reese’s turn!

Reese Scott is a veterinarian and is also nursing a broken heart from a broken engagement. Her name came up for the next adventure vacation. She is being sent to Mexico. Along with an assortment of excursions, she is scheduled to go cage diving with the sharks. She is also supposed to

For a novellla, this had maximum impact. It's exactly what I look for when I need something in between longer reads. The author did a fantastic job of relaying a lifetime connection between these main characters in one moment of time. The connection and the heat is felt and you don't question why these friends didn't become lovers sooner. That it was just a matter of the right time for these two. This was a great shortie!

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

Under Pressure is a fast-paced, seriously hot friends-to-lovers romance. As that is one of my favorite romance tropes, I was eager to dive into Reese and Cole’s story. Author Cathryn Fox did not disappoint – Under Pressure was the perfect mix of sweetness and spice.

Reese and Cole have been best friends for years, but each is too fearful of damaging their friendship to let on how much they want the other. An adventure-filled vacation is just the push

I'm loving this Dossier series from Cathryn. She writes some serious steam as it is and this little books are jammed back with it along with great storylines.
The premise of the series which was actually Harpers idea but they all agreed, to throw their names into a pile and everyone picks a name. The person sends whoever they have picked on a trip or some type of adventure that suits them to a T, with the qualification that they have "Epic" sex while on their trip.

I love a good friends turned to lovers story. This was one of the better ones I have read! Reese Scott and Cole Rayburn have been friends forever. They never looked at each other "that way". Now they are on vacation together in Mexico and everything is out the window. There is only so long you can hide your feelings for another person before you can't hide them anymore.

This was a short story, made me wish it was longer because I loved the chemistry between Reese and Cole!!

"Under Pressure" is a fun, super sexy Friends-to-Lovers romance in Cathryn Fox's Dossier series. In general the Dossier series is Ultra Steamy and they get hotter with each book. This third installment features an Adventure guide Hero and a easily scared veterinarian Heroine. Reese and her friends made a New Years Resolution to be daring with their sex lives. Each girl drew a name and must plan a birthday adventure with sexy potential for their 'chosen' friend. Reese's adventure begins with a ...more

.5 Review by Kristie K

A friends to lovers romance so deliciously seductive and sweet, Cathryn Fox brings the heat in this Dossier novel…

The third installment of the steamy Dossier Series, Under Pressure follows Reese Scott on her adventure-filled, BFF-funded vacation to South Africa to swim with the sharks…literally. The only odd catch to this vacation, is that her unbelievably sexy best friend Cole Rayburn is along for the ride. Though Reese is thrilled to have
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)
Under Pressure is a sexy friends-to-lovers romance. Reese is off on the adventure of a lifetime, sent by her friends to celebrate "the second half of my twenties in an epic way--that is, finding a hot guy and having back-bending sex before returning home." And yet, how can she do that when her protective best friend, Cole, is along for the ride, apparently having been sent by whatever well-meaning friend set her up on this adventure.

As they begin their adventure cage diving with sharks, Reese

In book 3 of this series, we travel to South Africa to go cage diving with sharks, explore haunted caves along the cliffs of the Spookdraai Mountains, and even go to an endangered species ranch! All this adventure, to help Reese Scott learn how to be brave, take risks, live a little - and realize that her life long best friend Cole Rayburn is the perfect guy for her.

Reese made a pact with her best friends that they send one another on an epic vacation for their twenty-fifth birthday. The only requirement-epic sex! When Reese receives her dossier, it contains tickets to Mexico and adventure expeditions while there-including cage diving with sharks! Being a veterinarian, Reese loves all animals. It's not a far stretch to think she would love an adventure to get up close with a great white. What she doesn't understand is why her forever best friend, Cole, is ...more

This is a novella. Our main characters in this story are Reese and Cole. They have been friends since they were children. Reese has been given a trip to go shark cage diving in Mexico by one of her friends and who does she bring but her best friend Cole. Mind you, she just broke up with someone so her spirits are down. There are stipulations to this trip, she has to do something she would never do and she has to have

When Reese gets picked to go on an adventure with her best friend Cole she feels pretty confident because Cole will always protect her. When they jump in the shark cage and she is scared to death Cole is right there, but when they go hiking and hang out in a haunted cave one thing leads to another and they make love. Reese has always loved Cole but for his sake she tells him she can protect herself but Cole loves her and he's pretty sure she loves him too but now he has to convince her. This ...more

Cole Cole Cole!!! What a perfect man!!! He was caring, protective, hilarious, gentle, and wickedly hot. I loved him throughout this whole story. The friends to lovers theme was utter perfection in this book. I adored the nicknames, the teasing, the knowing each other better than anyone, their cute pasts together. This novella was jam packed with a great little story. Major swooning for Cole! Reece was pretty great too, trying to step outside her comfort zones. But Cole truly captured my heart in ...more

Reese and Cole have been best friends forever. When Reese and Cole go on an adventure together can their true feelings for each other stay hidden. I loved how Cole was protective over Reese. Shark diving, scary caves and wild animal adventures are in store for the friends. The banter between Reese and Cole will have you laughing out loud, but hope that the friends will finally give into their attraction for one another.

This is the third book in the Dossier series and the first one that I have

It's Reese's turn for her dossier and she is not expecting to go to Mexico with her best friend Cole. She is really confused as why her person would send her to have hot sex with a stranger and have Cole there. Then again this could be exactly what she needs. Cole pushes her to do things she wouldn't normally do and maybe there is much sexual tension going on. Can they survive this trip and go their separate ways in the end or is it going to lead to something more?

I love this series the fact

I love these Dossier novellas! Reese and Cole didn't disappoint at all and I love best friends to lovers stories when they're done right. For such a short book, I was so impressed with how well Reese and Cole's life long friendship is established. They had more chemistry than some couples I've read in 300 page books. You could totally feel the love and friendship between them. The sexy times were perfect, super sexy and sensual. This is the perfect no frills, get right to it story for when ...more

This was an exceptionally quick read. Reese is swearing off relationships after her engagement to Jared is broken. Cole is her best friend. He escaped to Colorado so he didn't have to see Reese and Jared packing in the PDA. Now that neither of them are in a relationship and Reese's Dossier has sent them on a vacation together, will they each admit to their true feelings for one another? This stand alone HEA is sure to appeal to fans of friends to lovers romances.

Under Pressure by Cathryn Fox is Book 3 of the Dossier Series. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.

This is Cole and Reese’s story. Best friends since childhood they share everything...with the exception that the both of them have kept it under wraps that they’ve been secretly in love with the other since way back when. Now together on an adventure boundaries are going to be pushed...supa hawt peeps.

Cathyrn Fox has another winner on her hands. I love the relationship between Reese and Cole, Sexy, sweet, and hot are just a few words to describe this book. Some of the scenes that the author wrote about may the chemistry between the two sound so sexy and romantic. The author does such a great job describing Cole, you cannot help but cheer for him and maybe wish you were Reese. Thank you NetGalley and Cathryn Fox for allowing me to read and write a honest review of this book.

Another must read in the Dossier collection. Don't miss this friends to lovers adventure that has it all - hot friends, exotic locations, and the unspoken attraction they've had towards each other. What will happen when they take a chance and see just how hot they can be together? This is one spicy adventure.
One Foxy lady!

After recently discovering Cathryn Fox, I have become a bit of a Fox binge reader! This Foxy lady got me hooked on the Dossier series and now that that's done and dusted I am looking to start her Hands On series. Although Book 2 in the Dossier series was my personal favourite, the series as a whole was a satisfying, entertaining read.

Quick, sexy, best friend, HEA read. Everything happens fast due to the characters having a long previous history, so you don't get to really know the characters. There are a few steamy scenes, but most of the book the characters are inside their heads doing that constant yes no back and forth. I wish this was longer because I could like like the characters if they had some other interactions or something.

I was given an ARC for my honest review.
